Frizz? Damage? Dryness? We Have The Perfect Hair Solutions For You

by Bustle Studios

Whether it's from experimenting with our hair — blowing it out, curling it, dyeing it lavender — or just dealing with stubborn concerns like permanent flyaways or parched strands, most of us are members in the club of frizzy, dry, damaged, or all-of-the-above hair. That's why we’ve teamed up with Sephora to troubleshoot all your top hair struggles and offer easy solutions for each. With the right products, you can bring your hair back to life in no time. Here's everything you need to know.

The Issue: Frizz

Humidity, static electricity, brushing your hair, and even tossing and turning on your pillow are just a few examples of things that cause frizz.

The Solution

The trick to handling frizz is fairly straightforward. Use hydrating hair care to keep strands smooth and defined. Here are our top product picks for dealing with this hair struggle:

  • OUAI Hair Oil keeps hair sleek with a combo of oils. It also defends hair against heat damage, making it especially handy if you’re going for a smooth blowout.

The Issue: Damage

Straightening irons, curling wands, chemical treatments, coloring, and anything else that alters the structure of your hair — even temporarily — can result in it becoming weaker, brittle, and prone to breakage.

The Solution

First, give your hot tools a break — or at least spray on a heat protectant before you plug them in. And treat your hair to a reparative treatment two or three times a week. Here are two of our faves:

  • Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 contains an ingredient that repairs the bonds broken during chemical treatments, heat damage, and even over-brushing to detangle hair. It basically strengthens hair from the inside out.

The Issue: Dryness

Dryness can stem from a number of things. Sun exposure, heat, and harsh shampoo formulas (which strip your scalp's natural oils) all contribute to moisture loss. And some hair textures can also be inherently drier.

The Solution

To help repair dry hair, use concentrated, hydration-packed formulas like a mask or leave-in treatment. These are our recs to hydrate, nourish, and boost shine:

  • IGK Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm, a leave-in treatment, serves up a combo of hydrating all-stars (coconut oil, shea butter, and argan oil) to keep hair soft and glossy all day long.
