The 5 Best Hair Products For Dry And Frizzy Hair This Winter

Most people may only associate frizzy hair with the hot, summer weather. But the winter also dries everything out, including your hair. Here are the best hair products to use this winter, because they work to eliminate the frizz and increasing the moisture. That’s something we all need in our lives. Use one of these, and avoid repeating Monica’s hair in Barbados. Yikes.

1. Pantene Moisture Renewal Deep Conditioner 

In just three minutes (aka the time it takes you to shave your legs), this hair mask will transform your hair and give it some much-needed moisture. If your hair is extra damaged, use this as your regular conditioner. At a drugstore price, how can you go wrong?

2. Moroccanoil Treatment

This product is amazing for all types of hair. I know, I know. Putting oil in your hair seems rather strange but trust, it works miracles, and is truly one of the best hair products for dry and frizzy hair. Infused with argan oil, this product will speed up your hair’s drying time, reduce frizz, and add moisture. Although it’s more expensive than drugstore products ($44 for 100ml), a little goes a loooong way, so this bottle will last a while.

3. L’Oreal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care System Moisture

Along with the cold weather, coloring your hair and using shampoo and conditioners with sulfates can seriously dehydrate your locks. Opt for a shampoo and conditioner combo without sulfates to rehydrate your hair to eliminate the frizz. You might not have quite as many options in the shampoo aisle, but it’ll be worth it in the end.

4. Kérastase Elixir Ultimate Oil Serum

This one may be a little more bougie, but it is totally worth the higher price tag. $57 for a 100ml bottle may seem pricey, but this stuff is truly worth the big bucks. This oil-based serum combines maize, procaxi, argan, and camellia oils to deeply nourish your hair to protect against further damage and fight frizz.

5. DevaCurl Frizz-Free Volumizing Foam

This product will give you soft, touchable curls with loads of volume and zero frizz. At a great price, only $26 for a 222ml bottle, this one is a must-try. It is paraben- and sulfate-free and isn’t tested on animals. Anything else you could ask for in a product?

I Know It Sounds Weird, But These Reusable Beauty Products Will Save You Money

Look guys, I totally care about the environment. I use my own bags at grocery stores. I seriously debate getting my own reusable straws. But also, I used to spend a lot of money on single-use products. It is super annoying and I burn through things like makeup remover wipes soooo quickly because I am almost always too tired to wash my face like a proper adult. I’ve been carefully curating my beauty arsenal for years, and I’ve found some reusable beauty products that work super well and are a one-time (more or less) purchase kind of deal. So, if you use any of these products, swap them out so you aren’t contributing to the demise of our planet, plus more money for happy hour. It’s a win-win.

1. Makeup Eraser

I know. You’re all, “Holly, wtf, I’m not buying a $20 washcloth.” BUT IT IS A SPECIAL WASHCLOTH. Seriously, this thing is straight-up witchcraft. I never thought it would work as well as it does. It’s literally just, like, a microfiber washcloth that you add water to—nothing else—and it removes all your makeup without pulling or leaving residue, and it even removes waterproof makeup! It makes no sense. It’s also awesome if you have super sensitive skin, because you’re not using any irritating products. Wash them weekly and reuse. You’ll never need makeup remover again, so it saves you money long-term.

2. Blotting Sponge

I don’t understand why this isn’t talked about everywhere, but I’m going to assume it’s because people just don’t know about it. I got this free at some point in a gift set from Sephora, and it has changed my life. My skin is extremely oily, and instead of buying 200 packs of oil blotting sheets or piling on powder every couple hours, I now just use this. It’s a reusable sponge that you blot your face with, and it absorbs the oil, just like a blotting sheet. Except, you can use it endlessly until it basically falls apart (my first one is still going strong, and I’ve had it for ages). You just wash it whenever you wash your makeup brushes, let it dry, and it’s good to go again. The best part is that it doesn’t remove or smudge your makeup, so no need to reapply.

3. Exfoliating Gloves

Where have these been my entire life? Exfoliating gloves are completely life-changing. These gloves work better than any scrub you can buy. They easily slough off dead skin and prep your skin for shaving, and the best part is, you can use them with any soap or body wash you already use. You can reuse them literally until they fall apart in pieces, and save so much money in the long-run, with better results to boot.

4. Hair Ring

These are those super weird hair ties that look like telephone cords (if you were alive in the ’90s), and they are everywhere. But despite being kind of ugly, they are worth the price. These hair ties are invincible. They don’t break, stretch out, or leave creases, and they have insane holding power. It would take three normal hair ties to hold my bun up at the gym (assuming one doesn’t snap in the process). But now, I just use one of these and my hair does not budge. They’re also kind of bulky, so I don’t have any issues with losing them. Instead of having 100 hair ties that I lose or break until I end up with four, I only own two packs of Invisibobbles (six rings total).

5. Wet Brush

I’m just going to be up front with you: I don’t know why this brush works so well. It’s the cheapest brush I’ve ever owned, and I cannot explain to you how it manages to detangle my hair so easily. I have the worst hair texture ever. Sometimes it’s curly, but it’s straight in other places, and no matter what, I end up with basically dreadlocks underneath it every single day. I used to own f0ur different detanglers and leave-in conditioners to try to manage it, just so I wouldn’t cry when I tried to brush it out. I bought super expensive brushes from GHD, Chi, and even a $150 Mason Pearson—which made my hair shiny, sure, but could not even penetrate the barrier that is attached to my head to even get to the knots underneath. Nothing, and I mean nothing, got my knots out without pain. And then someone told me to buy this cheap plastic $7 brush. So I did. And without any product at all, even brushing when wet (which I would never, ever do before, because it would rip my hair out), all the knots come out painlessly and easily. The only hair product I buy now is a heat protectant for when I actually style my hair.

How To Beat Frizz This Summer

Sponsored by Suave

How many of you have ever felt personally victimized by humidity? Living in New York with naturally curly hair (I know, why do I do this to myself?) it’s a daily reality for me to have decent-looking curls—until I step outside and Mother Nature has its way with my hair. Because I don’t enjoy looking like Monica Geller in Barbados year-round, you can bet that I’ve tried basically every product on the market and every “life hack” to fix dry, frizzy hair. And I’m here to impart my wisdom on you, because I’m generous like that. So here are some strategies and products that actually work and will give you sleek, smooth hair all summer long, even when it’s so humid outside you feel like you’re walking through a cloud. And the best part is none of these methods cost like, a million dollars because we know you’re not made of money.

1. Don’t Wash Your Hair Every Day

Look, I know. Clean hair is great, but let’s be real, it’s a lot of work to style it every day, and by over-washing, you’re stripping your hair of natural oils it needs. If you have dry hair, it’ll be more likely to frizz up, especially if you’re also causing heat damage by blow-drying, straightening, or curling every day. In the summer, you’re probably also exposing your hair to chlorine, salt water, and sun, all of which cause drying and frizz, so try to only wash once or twice a week at most. If you need a refresher in between, get a good dry shampoo to hold you over, like Suave Professionals Natural Refresh Dry Shampoo.

2. Don’t Skip Conditioner

Conditioner is soooooo important to moisturizing your hair follicles, thus weighing it down so you don’t get swallowed alive by the humidity hair monster your dry af hair creates. Use conditioner with every wash, or if you insist on rinsing your hair every day even if you’re not shampooing, use it then too. The Suave Professionals Avocado + Olive Oil conditioner leaves dry, frizzy hair touchably soft and smooth. When used with the Avocado + Olive Oil shampoo and leave-in conditioner, your hair will stay smooth for up to three days and be protected from frizz—even in 95% humidity. Blessings.

3. Use Anti-Humidity Hairspray

To further combat frizz and keep it from ruining your blowout, spray your hair with an anti-humidity hairspray to seal it and keep it from expanding. When I lived in Texas, we used to use this horrible orange sticky gel to keep our hair from the humidity. My hair was sticky for like an entire 9 month period, but it wasn’t frizzy. Don’t be like me. After you finish styling, there are sprays like Suave Professionals Compressed Micro Mist Natural Smooth Hairspray, which is flexible and not sticky, and controls frizz for up for 48 hours.

4. Brush Your Hair Often

Hey, remember the oil that we talked about not washing out every day? That is really important to your hair health, and ensuring it’s not being taken over by frizz. Brushing your hair doesn’t just remove tangles, it also spreads the oil from your scalp to the rest of your hair, keeping your ends from drying out. If you listen to me—WHICH YOU SHOULD—and stop washing your hair every day, then you want to continue to keep the oil moving away from your scalp so you don’t look like a wet rat on day three. Brush your hair twice a day at minimum to keep it shiny and frizz-free.

So the next time you’re strolling through the hair care aisle at your drug store, don’t sleep on Suave. Just because the price point is cheap doesn’t mean the products are—the opposite, actually. Just trust me on this. Suave is one of those things that’s not too good to be true.

The Best Makeup & Skin Care Products You Can Buy At Target

If you’ve ever found yourself walking into Target for toothpaste and leaving after spending $200 on god only knows what, well, fucking same. It’s like as soon as you walk through the doors, there is something in the air that hypnotizes you into believing that you NEED to snag a bathing suit in the middle of January or a bedazzled tumbler that looks just like the 69 other ones you already have in the cabinet at home. However, if you ARE going to mindlessly spend your entire paycheck at Target, then what better to spend your hard-earned coin on skin care products and makeup? To keep you from blacking out in the beauty aisle and loading your cart with shit you don’t actually need, we’ve rounded up some of the best beauty products at Target. You’re welcome.

Best Facial Cleanser

La Roche-Posay Medicated Gel Cleanser

La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser sounds like it’d be really fucking expensive, and while it’s not (at only $15 for almost 7 oz.) the daily cleanser delivers results of its pricier counterparts. So if you’re sick of adult acne (bc why is this still a thing??!), the gel cleanser prevents and targets acne and delivers literally the clearest skin I’ve ever had.

Best Face Mask

L’Oréal Paris Detox & Brighten Pure-Clay Mask

Very few things feel better than cleaning off all of your makeup, washing your face, and relaxing underneath a fresh face mask. The L’Oréal Skin Experts Pure-Clay Mark is perfect because the natural clays (including Moroccan Lava Clay) and charcoal feel refreshing on sleek on our skin. We actually live for face masks, so like, if we’re going to choose just one, it has to be easy to put on and take off, smell nice, feel good on our faces, not use harsh chemicals, and most importantly, not break us out. We honestly might be more picky over face masks than we are over men.

Best Face Serum

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator

Korean skincare brand Missha is a cult favorite among K-beauty lovers, and luckily for Target lovers, it is now available in stores and online. Missha’s Time Revolution Night Repair works like a time machine for your face. The highly concentrated ampoule contains lactic acid which first absorbs into the skin to create a balanced complexion and then firms the skin to create a supple surface and youthful glow. In simpler terms, this shit rocks.

Best Mascara

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise

The number of times I’ve been asked whether or not my lashes are real while wearing L’Oréal Paris’ Lash Paradise is more than I can count. It gives major volume and separation without flakiness or clumping. If you want to look like you’re wearing falsies without the annoying application and getting glue all over your lashline, the trick is to apply multiple coats of this bad boy while the mascara is still wet on your lashes. You’re welcome.

Best Foundation

Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation and Concealer

Milani’s Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation & Concealer made our list because not only can you use it as both a concealer and foundation, but the combo also gives medium- to full-coverage results so you can layer and build the foundation to take your look from day to night. And at under $8, you’re getting two products in one and a flawless complexion that’ll hide the fact that you just got off a three-day bender and haven’t slept in days. Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything.

BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes – 28 Color Eyeshadow Palette

BH Cosmetics’ superpigmented Foil Eyes palette has 28 different shades for any look you want to channel. While yes, you’ll probably look like a psycho if you try walking around with a full-on royal blue eye, all of the buildable eyeshadows are great for blending to create any shade your little heart desires.

If you’re one of those people that avoids washing their hair at all costs and dry shampoo is your bff, meet dry conditioner, the product that will soon become your soulmate. You know that third-day hair when, while it may not be greasy thanks to dry shampoo, it’s definitely dry, brittle, and dull looking? Yeah, that’s what dry conditioner is for: to enhance shine, moisturize, reduce frizz and soften your unwashed strands and bring them back to life. To put it simply, if your favorite hair serum and your favorite dry shampoo hooked up and had a lovechild, they would give birth to a dry conditioner. Another product to save you time in the morning and to help you preserve your overpriced blowout? We’re here for it.

So if you’re over that matted, dry, tangled look that you try to pass off as JBF hair but instead you just end up looking homeless, we rounded up five of the best dry conditioners you need to add to your routine ASAP.

1. Marc Anthony Refreshing Coconut Clear Dry Conditioner

Marc Anthony Refreshing Coconut Clear Dry Conditioner

If you’re obsessed with smelling like a coconut even when you’re not at the beach, Marc Anthony’s offering should be your go-to. The dry conditioner goes on clear, gets rid of frizz, and helps to put definition back into second- and third-day hair, all while making you smell like you’ve spent the day lathered in sunscreen. In the best way possible, obvi.

2. Drybar Detox Dry Conditioner

Drybar Detox Dry Conditioner

Your favorite blowout spot knows a thing or two about preserving your styled hair, so expect only the best from Drybar. The dry conditioner spray is packed with argan oil to hydrate and get rid of frizz, mango butter to restore softness, and tiare flower to detangle and leave hair polished. The best part? It smells like jasmine, sandalwood, and vanilla, aka Drybar’s signature scent.

3. Eva NYC Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner

Eva NYC Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner

We’ll spare you the word play on girls with “knotty” hair and tell you that Eva NYC’s dry conditioner is perfect for those with manes that are full of tangles. Its main component is Vitamin B5, which softens and strengthens so you can actually get a brush through your hair. What’s more, Eva’s Forget Me Knot also gets rid of that annoying wintertime static so that you don’t look like you just got electrocuted.

4. Amika Silken Up Dry Conditioner

Amika Silken Up Dry Conditioner

Amika’s products are made for literally every hair texture on the planet, so you can imagine that their products also aim to do a little bit of everything—and that’s definitely the case with their dry conditioner. Its B5 component works to strengthen, protect against breakage, reduce split ends, and smooth the strands in addition to adding moisture, shine, and eliminating flyaways. So if you have fine, fragile hair, get you some Amika.

5. Oribe Soft Dry Conditioner Spray

Oribe Soft Dry Conditioner Spray

There’s something about using an Oribe product that makes you feel instantly cooler (yet more sophisticated), and that is definitely the case with the Soft Dry Conditioner Spray. Spraying the dry conditioner on is kind of like when you spray fabric softener on your clothes—your strands become instantly softer, better smelling, and all-around better looking, not to mention free of tangles to preserve your style for yet another day.

5 Ways Dry Shampoo Is Sabotaging Your Hair

I would try to beat around the bush with this one, but given what the headline is, there’s really no dodging it. I’m about to ruin your day, your week, your month, and even your year. On the bright side, this isn’t another article about Trump’s latest fuckups controversial tweet. Instead, it’s about the godawful ways dry shampoo is a scum-sucking road whore. It basically ruins your hair’s life, aka your life as well, each time you use it. I love dry shampoo as much as you, and in fact, I love my dry shampoo’d hair more than what my hair looks like out of the shower. I think we can agree that the volume, bounce, and texture dry shampoo provides is incomparable, not to mention the fact that it allows our lazy asses to skip a long and tedious hair wash routine. However, since nothing ever, ever, *ever* works in our favor, it turns out this shit is bad for you. I know, like, wtf did we do to deserve this? You don’t have to toss out your Batiste or Not Your Mother’s just yet, but I would think twice before using three days in a row.

1. It Could Cause Hair Loss

I don’t think any of us ever questioned just exactly what causes our hair to look so fab after using dry shampoo. As long as we woke up breathing with hair on our heads, it’s fine. But, dry shampoo is actually made of chemicals that aren’t really all that great for our hair. Whether you use it excessively or encounter it for the first time, you could basically develop dermatitis after use. You fucking guessed it—anything that ends with “itis” is a bigger red flag than a “U up?” text. This is a severe allergic reaction that causes intense irritation, which may result in drastic hair loss in the long-term. You’re not, like, guaranteed to lose all your hair if you abuse dry shampoo, but if your hair is already on the thinner side, be wary.

2. It Can Contribute To Breakouts

If you really think about it, dry shampoo is just a spray we leave on all day and don’t think about. Naturally. Since it’s just a product sitting on our scalp for hours on end, it’s seriously clogging up our pores. Just fuck me up, honestly. It continues to build up oils, dirt, and bacteria, which then = scalpne (scalp + acne), and since this is your head we’re talking about, the build-up can trail down to your upper forehead where it may wreak havoc as well. *Screams internally*

Don't Look At Me

3. It Might Irritate Your Scalp

Before the damage gets to your hair, it starts with your scalp. Since dry shampoo comes into contact with the scalp first, it can cause a v uncomfortable irritation. Overusing dry shampoo by leaving it on for more than a day or using multiple times in a row causes a buildup of grime—even after washing! This leads to a super inflamed, itchy, and flaky scalp. Talk about gross, and talk about hella dandruff. Pass.

4. It May Stunt Your Hair Growth Fo’ Life

As we’ve already covered, dry shampoo is essentially a temporary plug for oiliness. As a result, I’ve already told you like, a million times, that the constant use and buildup of oil and grime leads to clogged up pores. When this happens too often, your hair follicles are basically suffocating and blocked from growing any further. If it gets too severe, your hair will not only begin to thin or fall out, but it will eventually stunt your hair’s growth, and you’ll probs look like a British man. IDK maybe that’s just a theory, but either way, that’s the shit we don’t like.

5. It Actually Makes Your Hair Greasier

Contrary to popular belief, if used too often, dry shampoo can actually make your hair way more greasy than it was to begin with. Although it’s supposed to absorb the oil, it continues to absorb the natural kind that our hair actually *needs* and does so while sitting on top of existing grease. After some time, your hair ends up producing more oil than it naturally does to make up for the lack of moisture. End result? Looking like a greaseball more often than not.

5 Products You Need For Stronger Hair That Won’t Shed

I think I speak for most of us lucky betches who have hair when I say, hair is life. If I’m not having a good hair day (which happens to be every day I run into someone I don’t want to fucking see), I know it’s going to be a day from hell. However, I will say that I’m v lucky to even have hair to begin with, so that’s why I spend hundreds at a hair salon take very good care of it. Having a hair stylist fuck up a dye job is one thing. It sucks, but you can ultimately fix it. Trusting your roomie with no experience whatsoever to trim your hair is alarming if she screws up. Although on the good side, your hair grows back eventually. However, seeing your hair shed on the floor like an animal every single time you wash/brush/straighten it?!?! That’s a heart attack waiting to happen. Because losing your hair before turning 50 is terrifying, here’s what to get that’ll make you let out a huge sigh of relief and have your roommates stop yelling at you for clogging the drain.

1. Keranique Scalp Stimulating Shampoo Deep Hydration For Dry Hair

If your hair is either super thin or in the process of thinning, this strengthening shampoo is infused with keratin to protect your hair’s surface. It especially focuses on your scalp—which is good because like, that’s where this problem fucking stems from—to cleanse clogged pores and encourage healthy hair growth. Use this with its companion, Keranique Volumizing Keratin Conditioner Deep Hydration for Dry Hair, which essentially does the same shit, but better because it is conditioner and conditioner is God.

2. Lee Stafford Hair Lengthening Treatment

This treatment is perf for people who get really pissed off when their hair falls out because they’ve been waiting like, an eternity for their hair to grow even a fucking half of an inch to begin with (this is personal issues). This in-shower treatment really soothes your scalp for extra bouncy, voluminous hair that doesn’t leave clumps of your hair everywhere and actually gives it a chance to grow. Use in between the shampoo and conditioner for like, five minutes.

3. Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Towel

So apparently towel-drying your hair like a psycho is really bad for your hair and is a huge indicator for why it sheds in the first place. Oops. Well, to cut your hair-drying time in half without pulling your fucking hair out, this towel is made from ~exclusive~ technology so that it locks in your hair’s keratin and quickly brings your hair to a semi-dry state without friction. Anddd, without friction, you have healthy defined hair that’s frizz-free and on your head, instead of the floor!!! BLESS.

4. Bumble And Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat/Uv Protective Primer

Okay, this is the good stuff—the stuff that matters when you constantly fry the shit out of your hair and leave a shedding trail wherever you go. This is a multi-purpose mist that softens super fragile hair and protects it from every hair issue we all suffer from on a daily basis. It prevent hair breakage, as well as works as a heat protectant, de-frizzer, and moisturizer to keep your hair cooperative… for once. For first time users, use on damp hair for the first day of use and on the next, use on dry before styling as you wish.

5. Urban Outfitters Telephone Cord Hair Tie Set

YASSS betch, these are my fave. They replace that rude af hair tie you’re probs wearing on your wrist rn that rips out a fuck ton of your hair. These spiral plastic corded bands relieve the pressure, aka headache, from an up-do, keep your hairstyle stable and defined, and come off smoothly so you don’t literally yank your hair out. These come in fun colors, which also includes your everyday black. Just make sure you don’t let anyone borrow one because you sure as hell won’t get it back.

The Best Hair Products For When You’re Too Lazy To Blow-Dry

Other than the fact that they are legitimate excuses to have your hair look terrible, heat and humidity are high-key life ruiners when it comes to your appearance. Blow drying your hair is the second worst activity with “blow” in the name that you’ll ever have to do, and it’s especially brutal in the summer. I’m sorry, but my 21st century attention span just cannot handle sitting still for 30 minutes unable to listen to music because a loud ass heat machine is blowing my hair beautiful. I just can’t do it. Luckily, there is a way to get away with leaving home with wet hair in the morning, and it’s called having the right products. Just make sure you leave early enough to stop at Starbs or something on the way to work so you don’t show up with dripping wet hair and an “I literally just rolled out of bed” attitude. These sprays, oils and hair masks will leave you with naturally beach looking hair without needed to use any heat tools.

Ouai Wave Spray

Jen Atkin, aka the HBIC responsible for the Kardashian hairstyles you screenshot to show your stylist, created the Ouai line to trick average betches into thinking they can have celeb hair, too. You’ll probably never come close to the perfection level of the locks of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, but for $26, you can at least try. The wave spray works for all hair types and smells sooo delushious *Chrissy Teigen voice.*

Bumble and Bumble BB Curl Defining Cream

If I was going to be stranded on a deserted island and could only bring one hair product, I’d take this. I understand that’s a bullshit scenario because nobody plans to be stranded on a island and I will never understand why we’re all so obsessed with asking each other what we’d take to be stranded on a fucking island, but you get my point. This cream is amazing. Besides creating really nice curls, it has UV filters to protect your hair from the sun and really helps the fact that once it’s hotter than 70 degrees, your hair wants to become a giant frizzball. Quick little tip, though: make sure to use a small amount. The first time I used this, I globbed a ton in my hair and it was a little too reminiscent of the crunched hair look from middle school for my taste. Less is more, betches.

Devacurl Melt Into Moisture Matcha Butter Conditioning Mask

This hair mask is perfect for all of you granola betches who are crunchy AF but don’t want your curls to be. You probably already spent most of your money on matcha (that guy who said we aren’t buying houses and diamonds because of avocado toast obviously doesn’t know the cost of a green tea latte addiction), so why not let the obsession spread to every other corner of your life? This hair mask is vegan and gluten free, which I’m sure your roommate will be thrilled to hear you talk about for hours on end.

LUSH Sea Spray Hair Mist

Speaking of natural, vegan stuff, Lush’s sea spray hair mist is basically like taking a dip in the ocean. Except, you’re probably in a tiny bathroom in New York City instead of frolicking around some exotic island. On the plus side, it definitely smells better than actual nature does, so technically you’re the true winner here.

Moroccanoil Frizz Control

Okay not to be gross, but as I’m typing this I’m literally leaving Moroccan oil fingerprints all over my keyboard because a) my life is a mess and b) I’m obsessed with putting this shit in my hair. If you’ve never tried Moroccanoil products before, you’re probably like, an alien or something because any betch who has ever received a free sample bag from Sephora or a Birchbox subscription has had at least a packet of this in her possession at some point. Even though it’s kiiind of basic, it really works.
