It’s that time of year where bad hair days are totally inevitable. Here are some products that I’ve been trying out to help combat the frizz.

Haircare Products

Schwarzkopf Got2B All Star 10-in1 Styling Treatment

This product boasts that it can do TEN things for your hair. What are they? Shine, fullness, strength, thickness, smoothness, suppleness, protection, anti-frizz, anti-humidity, and shape.

It costs just under a fiver, which is pretty good for what it claims to offer. I’m pretty happy with this, it does make my hair sleeker and slightly less frizzy, but it doesn’t tame it completely. (I’m yet to find anything that really does though!)

It’s worth trying out if you’re on a budget and looking for something to help combat those bad hair days though.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Shine Deep Treatment

This is probably the best conditioning treatment I’ve used. It’s the only product that consistently makes my hair softer, shinier and more manageable. And, at less than a fiver, it’s really pretty cheap too.

I always re-purchase this, because I can’t bear to run out of it. So it probably goes without saying that I’d definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone. Give it a try, it’s really good!

Toni & Guy Prep Heat Protection Mist

I like Toni & Guy hair stuff. (Especially seeing as this was only a couple of quid.) I’m trying to give my hair as much of a break as possible each week from heat styling, but sometimes only GHDs will do to tame my hair, and that’s where this product comes into play.

The scent is lovely and subtle, and it seems to ease frizz slightly too. Plus it’s always nice to be reassured that I’m protecting my poor hair from all the heat I subject it to.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery Creme Serum

Ahhh, Frizz Ease. I picked this up in Boots the other week by chance, having not used anything from the range for years. I’ve mainly been using this to try and tame frizz after I’ve finished styling my hair, but you can use this before blow drying. It’s pretty good at taming flyaways and calming down the frizziness that’s inevitable at this time of year.

It’s slightly pricier than all of the other products on my list, but it’s pretty flippin’ good, so it’s probably worth it.

Co Lab Dry Shampoo – Paris

This is part of Ruth Crilly’s range of dry shampoos. Now, I’ll be honest, I’m really not a fan of dry shampoo at all. I’ve never found one that I would consider using on a regular basis, or as an alternative to washing my hair if the option to wash it properly wasn’t there.

Co Lab is probably the nicest one I’ve found, for a couple of reasons: It doesn’t make my hair look grey/white (so people don’t mistake me for an old lady), and it doesn’t make my hair too much frizzier.

There are an array of different scents (all named after different cities) in the range, but I picked up Paris, in the hope that it would make me feel more cosmopolitan and Parisian. (It didn’t.)

This would probably be the dry shampoo brand that I’d opt for first, but it’s not something I’d ordinarily pick up and use unless I really had to.


Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?
