1. Give Your Hair a Cold Water Rinse

Preventing frizzy hair starts in the shower,” explains Sean Steigerwald, head R&D scientist at Kao USA Inc. Showering at a lower temperature protects both your hair and skin by preventing overdrying and frizzy hair.

Hairstylist Josh Shellhammer recommends a cold rinse to help seal your hair’s cuticles. After washing your hair, turn down the temperature and finish with a refreshing cold water rinse. If you’re not willing to give up your hot showers entirely, tie up your hair to protect it from hot water damage.

2. Opt for a Conditioning Shampoo

“Shampoos can sometimes be over-drying. Making sure you have the right one is so important—a moisture-based shampoo and conditioner is best,” says celebrity hairstylist David Stanwell.

Frizzy hair is often due to misaligned hair fibers. Steigerwald explains, “A conditioning shampoo is great because it helps to detangle hair and realign the hair fibers. Taming hair when it’s in the wet phase, like while you’re in the shower, is the easiest way to prevent frizz later.” Steigerwald explains, “A conditioning shampoo is great because it helps to detangle hair and realign the hair fibers…”

3. Detangle Hair With a Wide-Tooth Comb

Using the wrong brush can rough up hair cuticles and lead to frizz. Never use a boar bristle brush to brush wet hair. Instead, use a brush designed for wet hair. Wide-tooth combs are ideal for frizz-prone hair because they have more space for hair to pass through the teeth, which helps to prevent breakage.

Oil and product residue can stay on your brush, so Shellhammer suggests cleaning it to prevent excess material from getting into your hair and possibly causing frizz.

“Wash your brush with a mild shampoo at least once every couple weeks,” he explains. “There can be fuzzies that get trapped in the bristles that can get into the hair.”
