Frizz happens to the best of us. Add heat to the mix—and pouf—you’ve got a full-blown bad hair day on your hands. Here, six effective smoothers that will tame your mane, despite the humidity.
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Shampoo and Conditioner
Stylists swear that the secret to sleek strands starts with a smoothing shampoo and conditioner. This creamy duo helps nix flyaways long after you suds up by reacting with the heat from your hair tools to seal in straightness.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air-Dry Waves Styling Foam
Sometimes, going with your natural texture is the easiest and quickest route to battling fizz. On those days, skip hot tools and finger-comb a golf ball-size amount of this foam through sopping wet hair. Moringa oil helps boosts shine and tamps down frizz, while flexible polymers in the formula stretch around strands. The result? Waves that look controlled and bouncy, but feel soft (not crispy).

Smooth one pump of this multi-oil cocktail onto dry ends to nip frizz in the bud, plus prevent it from creeping up throughout the day. Babassu and Marula oils seal the cuticle without leaving a greasy residue on hair, so you can use it to touch up too.
