Battle of the Frizz

So it’s been, like, 112 degrees here with the dew point, giving me ample opportunity to test out a few frizz-fighting products + procedures. As you can see, my hair is still hanging on for dear life to that damned body wave. This has taught me lesson #1: Work with what you’ve got, girls. Unless that’s stick-straight hair, STEP AWAY FROM THE FLAT IRON. In fact, I’d avoid heat tools altogether. Instead, I’ve been scrunching in a combination of two parts LiQWD The Perfect Wave grooming cream (the first beach-wave product that hasn’t made my hair feel dirty) to one part L’anza Trauma Treatment (my go-to leave-in conditioner). I finished with a few spritzes of Living Proof Wave Shaping Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Spray, which doesn’t contain a drop of silicone so won’t weigh hair down. That’s it. No blow dryer or brushing or touching! It’s the closest I get to wash-and-go. What do you think? And what are YOUR frizz-fighting tricks?
