20 Life-Saving Products For Anyone With Frizzy Hair

Because summer humidity is the WORST. The products in this post were updated in March 2018.

1. Take the beach with you everywhere in the form of a bottle of Not Your Mother's Beach Babe sea spray.

target.com / amazon.com

If you're looking to control your fly-aways and get some beachy waves at the same time, look no further than a solid sea salt spray. While not ideal for everyday use (the salt dries out hair), it's a great solution for days when your hair simply won't cooperate. Not Your Mother's Beach Babe is a popular choice thanks to its reliable results.

Promising review: "This product isn't just for people with long hair who want beachy waves. I have short hair and I use it to get texture and volume. It's great. It lasts a long time (that could also be because I have short hair), it smells great, and it doesn't leave a gross residue in your hair like other ones I've tried, where if you run your fingers through your hair, you have a gross feeling on your fingers. It's a great price, and I think a great product!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Target for $3.76 or on Amazon in banana scent for $3.87.

2. Rub your 'do down with some hair sheets that will calm down frizz.
