Best Frizz Fighters

I make no apologies for how much I love my hair and that I take pride in maintaining its appearance. I mean, I have bins and bins of products taking over my linen closet. Though frizz is the bane of my hair’s existence. Having coarse, super thick, crazy wavy hair means it sucks up any moisture it can find, so when I wake up and can taste the humidity in the air, it’s game on.

I don’t remember ever having to deal with frizz as a kid, but at some point everything changed, and I spent my 20s experimenting with different cocktails of products. So over the years, I have tried every frizz control product I could get my hands on to combat those awful little hairs from popping up, and I’m sharing my holy grail items below.

Head & Shoulders Soft & Silky #PartOfOurFamily

We all have that one physical feature that we love more than the rest and totally play up. For me, it’s my hair. I may fight with unruly waves and frizz but I am lucky to have a thick head of hair that, when tamed, I just adore.

However, nothing can ruin a dark mane like embarrassing dandruff flakes. It happens to most of us and it’s something I began battling last winter. Though thanks to regular Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky use, I can finally declare that I am FLAKE-FREE.

Outside of nail polish, my hair is probably my biggest beauty obsession. You see, I have one giant, hard-to-tame mane that is both a blessing and curse. When I get it under control, it’s my favorite feature. When left to its own devices (which no one but the boyfriend gets to see), it’s a hot garbage juice kind of mess. And that’s not me being self-deprecating. The boyfriend jokingly calls me “wookiee,” when I let my hair air dry. It’s serious, people.

Today I’m going to share some of my faves as part of this week’s Makeup Wars challenge. I’ll also let you in on some of the fails in my hair care graveyard.
