    The products you need to fight frizz and keep your hair straighter for longer — no matter your hair texture!

    1. Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme works doubly to straighten and strengthen your hair while you're blow drying, so you won't even have to break out the flat iron.

    Sephora

    This product is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates! It's also vegan, cruelty-, and gluten-free.

    Promising review: "Another Fantastic Product from OLAPLEX!!!! This product had become my new favorite! As a hairstylist, I see every hair type, including curly, straight, thick, and fine hair, etc. And it works fabulously on all types! I love that you can apply this to wet or dry hair. It’s great to put in before a blowout and leaves the hair soft with no frizz!!! I’ve found also that it will keep your style longer so you don’t have to wash as often!" —chapuline

    Get it from Sephora for $28.

    2. Alaffia Repair & Restore Finishing Oil Mist adds an extra layer of hydration to all dry, frizzy hair types so it can be silky and shiny once and for all.

    Alaffia

    Alaffia products are formulated without toxins and are cruelty-free!

    I use this when my hair needs just an extra boost of moisture. My ends can sometimes get dry and frizzy (because I wear my natural hair straightened) so I just spritz some of this on my ends, and they straighten out with shine. This oil mist also helps extend my wash days so I can go longer without washing my hair. I highly recommend this to people who battle with dry hair!

    Get it from Amazon for $10.50 or Alaffia for $9.50.

    3. Mielle Organics Pomegranate & Honey Leave-In Conditioner penetrates each strand to diminish frizz and seal in moisture. This not only great for your natural, curly hair but works wonders when you straighten it (like I do).

    instagram.com

    I personally have been using this product for almost a year and I love it! I have low porosity, 4C natural hair that's super fine whether it's blown out or straightened. But this product hydrates my hair, keeps it moisturized, and ultimately straight without frizz. I use this leave-in right after I deep condition my hair and before straightening it with a blow dryer and then a flat iron. After using, my hair much easier to detangle and after it's blown out, my hair is super shiny, bouncy, and hydrated — without being greasy. And it helps keep my natural hair straight and moisturized for up to four weeks. It's one-of-a-kind and a must-have for me!

    Get it from Walmart for $12.99.

    4. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum creates a long-lasting frizz control barrier on each strand that can last in about 97% humidity.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "So before straightening, I will spray with the Garnier Straightening Mist. And I use a medium heat setting (300-340 degrees). Then when done straightening, I will put a tiny amount of this anti-frizz serum, especially on the ends. My hair is straight and frizz-free throughout the whole day. I LOVE IT. And the smell is amazing." —May

    Get it from Amazon for $4.69+ (available in three sizes).

    And check out the Living Proof PhD Dry Shampoo to extend your wash days even longer.

When I blow dry and use a straightener, it feels like silk and is virtually frizz-free. I don't like using a lot of heat on my hair, so this product is great for my air drying needs as well." —Sara

This product worked miracles. Even my ends felt so soft and remained non-frizzy. I was able to leave my hair down and received many compliments." —Kiehl's Customer
