My Hair Routine and The Battle Against Frizz

Naturally, I have curly, frizzy hair – think SJP in the 80’s. I have yet to embrace my natural curl, and until then I’m keeping it straight and standing strong against my battle with frizz. There are a few game changing products and methods that I’ve discovered along the way. Like how the right blow dryer can make a world of difference. Here are my holy grail products for going from curly to sleek.


The Products:

I have a finicky scalp that can easily go from dry to oily, and in addition suffer from occasional flares of seborrheic dermatitis. I’ve spent years trying to find a shampoo that helps to balance my scalp. A few months ago I was introduced to the MooGoo Milk Shampoo and my scalp has never been happier! Without ever over-drying my scalp, it leaves my hair feeling super clean. I’m already on my second bottle, I’ll never be without it.

When it comes to conditioners I’m super picky. I find that a lot of conditioners with more natural-based ingredients tend to leave a residue on my hair. So until I find a conditioner that trumps the performance of my Nexxus Humectress, I’m sticking with it. Once a week, I use Davines Alchemic Silver Conditioner to keep my color bright. For heat protection, frizz-taming and added hydration, I love using oils and leave-in conditioners. Pure jojoba oil is a great option because its lightweight and doesn’t weigh down the hair, quite the opposite actually as it adds body. In addition to oil I add in some Evolh Smartstart Leave-In Conditioner Leave-In Conditioner, which additionally protects and tames frizz.  If it’s a hot and humid day, I’ll reach for Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream to keep things straight. It’s a game-changing product that works like nothings else in the fight against frizz. After styling I finish off with Captain Blankenship Golden Waves Sea Salt Shimmer Spray for texture and hold. Once or twice a week I’ll help keep my hair healthy by using an oil hair treatment, which I apply from roots to ends. The Kumari Luxury Hair Oil Luxury Hair oil is my favorite. 

The Tools:

The Hubalou Hair Towel is a non-damaging and efficient way to smooth the hair and lessen frizz. Straight out of the shower I wrap my hair up in this bamboo fiber cloth and keep it in as long as I can. A good blow dryer can make a world of difference. The Elchium 2001 helps me reach about 80% of my hair styling goals! As my 2 year-old Elchium started to slow down on me, I hurried up and ordered a back up. It does its job in half the time to smooth and straighten, without causing a lot of the damage I’ve experienced with other hair dryers. I straighten my hair with this brush, and will occasionally add in soft waves using my Hot Tools 1 1/4 inch NanoCeramic Curling Iron.

  1. I no longer have frizzy hair since I stopped fighting against my curls and stopped straightening my hair! I conditioning after every shampoo and use leave-in conditioner and oils. Now I love my curls without frizz!

  2. I just ordered that shampoo after reading your post. My scalp has been so uncomfortable lately and the only shampoos that seem to work for me are shu uemura and kerastase but they can get pricey!

  3. I am also a curly girl, and although I hope someday you’re able to embrace your curl at least sometimes, I am also hardcore impressed with your styling abilities. Honestly, laziness is the #1 reason I wear my hair curly 🙂

    Quick question about the sea salt spray–do you find that if you use it too often it dries out your hair/makes it more frizzy?

    1. Aww thanks! I certainly do not straighten my hair daily- especially not in the summer when im in and out of the water. I don’t feel like the Sea Salt Spray dries my hair at all! However it does have a “dry feel” when on to create that texture. It has lots of lovely oils in it to hydrate the hair ❤️
