6 Ways to fight frizz this winter
Smoothing away frizzy flyaways and static with a used dryer sheet has to be one of the oldest beauty tricks in the book. I know professional stylists that pass it over all their client's hair after a fresh blowout. It might seem strange, but it actually works like a charm. But now you don't have to head to the nearest convenient store for a box of Bounce because Kérastase just came out with their very own dryer sheets--designed especially for your hair!

I get blowouts on a weekly basis so static and flyaways are a regular thing for me. I've tried hair serums before and all they do is leave my roots flat and oily, which is why I was thrilled when I heard about Kérastase K Carré Lissant. They're literally like blotting paper for your hair only they're not meant to absorb oil, but instead smooth down frizz and other pesky hairs that are getting in the way of you having a fabulous hair day. And that's not all they do. They also boost shine and leave your locks smelling like grapefruit and roses. In other words--they work even better than actual dryer sheets!
Here are a few other frizz-fighting products to try out this fall. Check them out!
Smooth it out: There's a reason why everyone is so obsessed with argan oil these days. Not only does it give skin a natural glow but it also helps fight frizz. Smooth in a dime-sized amount of Morrocanoil Smoothing Lotion ($32) to clean, wet hair before styling. It's packed with argan oil, argan butter and vitamin E that helps tame frizz as well as moisturize.
Keep it light: Living Proof Satin Hair Serum ($29) fights frizz and smooths hair without weighing it down or creating product build-up. It also cuts your styling time in half. No more one hour blowouts!
Don't poo: I always say frizz-fighting starts in the shower. Look for a gentle, sulfate-free formula, like Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo ($22). It keeps hair moisturized and smooth.
Deep condition: Want smooth, frizz-free hair? I suggest you load up on a deep conditioning treatment once a week. Leave it on for at least 5 minutes if you want noticeable results. I like Agave Restorative Hydrating Mask ($38).
Oil up: I like using a hot-oil treatment twice a month. Not only does it soften hair and smooth frizz, but it also helps to repair damage. I'm obsessed with Josie Maran Argan Hot Oil Self-heating Hair Treatment ($36). It leaves my strands super shiny too!
Leave in conditioner: For curly girls, work in an intensely moisturizing deep conditioner, like Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow Repair Leave-In Conditioner ($11) to help soften and tame curls. It even helps with detangling and who doesn't need help there?
