There was a time not long ago when those of us with any hair type that had a habit of frizzing up under the right circumstances would resign ourselves to throwing our hair in a bun or ponytail. But, thanks to these amazing smoothing serums for frizzy hair, there are alternatives to the updo when frizzy days happen. The truth is, frizz rarely discriminates when it comes to hair type. And one of the biggest reasons why frizzy hair happens is a lack of moisture — a result of shampooing too much, using heating tools, not conditioning hair enough, and even spending a lot of time in the humid great outdoors.
But, thankfully, hair products have come a long way in recent years and some of the best frizz-fighting serums contain ingredients like essential oils and plant extracts that are known for sealing the cuticle of hair and making it look glossy (coconut and macadamia nut oils are just two of several examples). There are also hair serums available for a multitude of hair types because, as most of us learned when experimenting with products as teenagers, what works on thick, course hair is only going to drag fine locks to the ground — and lightweight serums for thin hair usually don't contain the ingredients needed to hydrate thick hair.
These eight incredible smoothing serums bring shine back to frizzy hair of any texture.
