How to choose the best shampoo for frizzy hair

Are you still on the hunt for the perfect shampoo for frizzy hair? Frizz can be a handful for any hair type, and the right shampoo can make all the difference between a frizz-free day and that frayed, unkempt look no one wants. Keep reading to learn how to choose the best shampoo for frizzy hair and what to do for a frizz-free routine.

Why Does My Hair Get Frizzy?

Frizz occurs when the outer layer of the hair, or cuticle, allows moisture from the air to penetrate the strand, making it swell to give it a “static” appearance. While the weather can be a major factor, hair can also become frizzy due to: 
  • Lack of moisture
  • Hair damage
  • Porosity (how well the hair absorbs and holds moisture)
  • Genetics
  • Using the wrong products for your needs 
The solution? Hydrating formulas and smoothing elixirs that’ll make your hair silky, shiny, and manageable—especially if you use the holy grail of frizz-fighting shampoos. After all, it all starts in the shower. 

  

Straight to the Weakness 

Find the root of the problem—not ifs or buts. If your hair is prone to frizz, ask yourself why. Have you bleached your hair recently? Are you over-washing, using harsh products, or has the texture become a high-porosity dry mess? Something as simple as rubbing your hair too carelessly with a synthetic towel can trigger the frizz. Understanding the causes of frizzy hair can help you minimize the aftermath. One thing is for sure, though—frizzy hair needs moisture ASAP, and you can only offer it with an adequate wash and care system.

 

What to Look for in Your Hair Care Products

Beyond buying products labeled as “anti-frizz” or “frizz-control,” getting familiar with core ingredients can help you make better choices when it comes to shampoos for frizzy hair. What to look for? Naturally hydrating ingredients and moisturizing formulas that soften the strand from root to tip. Coconut oil, argan oil, shea butter, hyaluronic acid, and murumuru butter are good examples of ingredients that replenish hair naturally and lock in moisture, smoothing the frizz out. Lu’s Control Shampoo, born to tame frizz while giving you shiny, manageable locks that will look sleek and stylish all day long, uses murumuru butter. Control creates a lightweight barrier, preventing humidity from getting into the strands and causing frizz. The result? Smoother, healthier hair from the very first wash!

Lu’s haircare products are also infused with Impossible Keratin™

—a proprietary vegan keratin formulation that deeply penetrates each strand to increase strength, minimize breakage, and avoid flyaways. It's something no other shampoo for frizzy locks has, and the best friend any frizzy-hair gal could ask for.

Complete Care for Frizzy Hair

If you’ve got frizz, you’ve probably already tried all kinds of products, solutions, and perhaps even a little brujería to tame it. And you know the steps you follow in your frizz-busting haircare routine are as important as the shampoo you choose. That’s where Control can make a game-changing difference.

Unlike other hair types, frizzy locks need specific aftercare to moisturize and nourish the strands. In addition to a shampoo for frizzy hair, you’ll want to treat your strands to a deep-conditioning product and apply a leave-in cream to seal and smooth. The Control Shampoo, Control Conditioner, and “Lock the Look” Styling Cream are designed to work together to banish frizz and flyaways. They’re lightweight and ultra-hydrating, making them the perfect addition to a frizz-free hair routine, no matter the texture. And they provide long-lasting results without requiring multiple applications. 

Lastly, give your hot tools a rest—as much as we love styling, heat is counterproductive if you want to achieve a smooth ‘do. Allow your hair to air-dry and if you must apply heat, do so occasionally in a lower setting or with a diffuser, and don’t forget to use a styling cream to protect and finish. 

Footloose and Frizz-Free

The road to frizz-free hair is littered with empty bottles of shampoos that didn't work—but that doesn’t mean there’s no hope! If you’re still on a mission to find a shampoo specifically made to control frizz while checking all the rest of the boxes—like cleansing, softening, moisturizing, and cruelty-free—we’ve got you covered. From battling humidity to enjoying salon-ready hair every day, Lu’s Control Shampoo is here to tame that frizz and earn a permanent spot in your shower.
