Quick Tips: Tame Frizz

I'm still Sicky McSickerson over here, so I've got two quick posts for you today. Be sure to check out this month's Ipsy Bag review if you'd like. In the meantime, what do the four things below have in common?

Yes! You're correct! Ok, admit you cheated and looked at the title of this post! Seriously, if you find yourself in a pinch, with baby hair pumpin' lip gloss a-shinin' with errant hairs sticking out, try one of the items pictured above to tame frizz! Sunscreen, Chapstick, soap (bar or liquid), or lotion can add moisture to hair, thus temporarily calming those springs down. Just take a very, very small amount in your palms, creating a thin film on them, and gently pat/smooth hair into place.

If you have dry hair, like me, do you know what won't work? Hairspray, or any hair product with alcohol in it won't work. Alcohol dries out the hair, which can be great for those with fine hair that need hold, but not for dry hair. Again, while there are many smoothing products out there that ease the frizz, just know you can grab one of these products if you need to!

What's your favorite product to rid frizz?


  1. Great tip :) when i used to go college, my hair was "acting up" a little and i used some of my hand cream to smooth it back lool.. My friend seemed really shocked but i didnt get why, most ingredients are similar to hair products anyway with water, emollients n oils lol x

  2. cool...i'm all over this one! thanks.

  4. I get keratin treatments at the salon 3 times a year. I have VERY naturally curly (and frizzy) hair, but between my keratin and the time I spend with my flat iron, you'd never know ;)

  5. Great tips! Next time I'm reaching for the Chapstick!

    Ihope you feel better!

  18. I've done lotion in a pinch! I've tried olive oil, too, but wow do you have to wash your hair later! Next time I'll remember Chapstick, which seems like it would be less greasy.

  19. I've used lotion before to coax my frizzies but I didn't know about the other ways. Thanks for sharing and feel better Elle!

  20. I know zero about hair care, so this is fabulous! I had NO idea about the hairspray not helping things. I actually use a dryer sheet from the laundry room to tame the flyaways. Makes my hair smell fab.

  21. I kind of like my frizz Xo Megan, www.TfDiaries.com

  22. I'll have to try the dryer sheet tip!

    Also, I bought alcohol-free hairspray when I ran out, and it really has made SUCH a difference. My hair doesn't get as dry and frizzy anymore!

  23. chapstick is a good tip!


  24. Great tips, Elle! We're approaching the Season of the Frizz, too- spring and summer! Ha!

    Hope you get to feeling better soon. :)


  25. I didn't know you could use a metal hanger, great tip :) Hope you feel better soon!

  26. This is so unbelievably good to know - my hair is deceptively thick, and I swear, I look like a freakin' lion sometimes. Definitely good to have a handleful of ways to combat frizz! :) Feel better, love!

  27. Great tips. The only one of these I knew about was the chapstick. I swear sometimes my hair sticks out in the weirdest way.
