The Best Hair Products to Beat Frizz and Humidity


As temperatures start to rise, so does the hair's cuticle, resulting in frizzy, puffy hair that can drive even the most sane woman nuts. Clients are always asking about ways to beat frizzy hair, and now more than ever, there are products on the market that actually work to beat frizz and don't just offer empty promises. I've broken down your best options below so you can decide which frizz-fighters will be right for your clients.

1. Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray


I've never found a product that works better than this one. Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity works every time to fight humidity and keep hair frizz-free. Some of my finest haired clients, with that slightly wavy hair that immediately fuzzes up, can spray this product on and their blowout will look flawless throughout the day, no matter what the weather. This product works by sealing the surface of the hair, leaving a hydrophobic film behind that will resist both water and humidity

The scent is to die for, and it has a light hold that can take the place of hair spray. A little goes a long way, and as it should, this product does not come cheap and the bottle is quite small. Just keep in mind that every client that has balked at the price has come back asking for more, and we can't keep it in stock at the salon. This product is guaranteed to be a big seller in your retail section.

2. Phyto Specific Moisturizing Styling Balm

One of the best ways to fight frizz is to prep the hair before you blow dry. Arming the hair with a barrier of emollient ingredients will act as a shield from heat, humidity and other hair fuzzing elements.

Phyto Specific Moisturizing Styling Balm is a luscious leave-in conditioner that nourishes while adding shine and a light hold. This multitasking balm is quite concentrated and works best on thick, curly, and wavy hair textures. Fine hair can get too weighed down with this product.

3. Ouidad Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel

This gel claims to have "brains" - or heat-activated wheat proteins that breath in humidity, protecting the hair shaft and preventing the cuticle from swelling. Very smart indeed. This water -soluble formula contains amino acids and vitamin A which hydrate and nourish the hair. The hair is left soft, manageable and shiny, with no buildup. This product is a must-have for curly summer styles and it can also be used to protect from styling tools and to prevent frizz when blowing the hair out straight.

Dozens of beauty awards can't be wrong, this product has been honored by Allure Magazine, naturallycurly.com, Shecky's, glam.com, and Daily Glow to name a few.

4. KMS Hair Stay Anti-Humidity Seal

KMS Hair Stay Anti-Humidity Seal is a fantastic finishing product that fights against the most unruly frizz. This product promises 24-hour humidity protection, adding shine and leaving a weightless finish. It protects the hair from heat-styling and has a light hold. This product is similar to the Oribe Anti-Humidity Spray, but comes at a more affordable price.
