The Best Shampoos for Frizzy Hair 


Having frizzy hair is the worst. You can’t do anything with it without looking like you’ve lost a fight with tumbleweed and it’s dry and dull to the touch. Humidity and the sun don’t help and can make your hair much harder to control. 

It doesn’t matter what your underlying hair texture is, be it super fine and straight, or mega curly, frizz in your hair makes it nearly impossible to style the way you want it to. What’s worse is that frizzy hair is usually an indicator that your scalp and hair follicles — not just your strands of hair — need some TLC. 

What causes frizzy hair in the first place? A majority of the blame goes to the texture and overall makeup of your hair in general. If your hair is prone to frizz, then the other factors, such as using hair products and heating tools, hot showers, and environmental factors, will affect your hair even more. 

So, what do you do? The solution to your frizzy hair needs doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming. You don’t have to cut your hair in frustration or hide your wild strands under a hat or baseball cap. There’s an easier and better solution, and it lies in something as simple as your shampoo. 

If you envy the smooth tresses of your peers, check out the following list of the best shampoos for frizzy hair. Once you find the shampoo that makes your hair happy, you’ll notice an increase in the texture, sheen, and overall appearance of your hair — and your scalp will be healthier than ever too. 

1. Blu Atlas Classic Shampoo 


In addressing frizzy hair, a shampoo should focus on healing the diameter of the hair. Always choose an anti-frizz shampoo that has quality ingredients for smoothing and repairing hair that is damaged by environmental and other factors. This is why Blu Atlas and their classic shampoo hit our list at number 1. 

What makes this shampoo for frizzy hair so great? This vegan and natural shampoo has jojoba protein in it, which is ideal for taming stressed strands and making them smooth and easy to manage. Add in some saw palmetto for reducing hair loss and aloe vera to soothe and cleanse the scalp without irritation, and you have a powerhouse shampoo for battling the frizz and making your hair stronger against split ends, breakage, and flyaways. 

A gentle lather is all you need, and remember, shower in cooler water so you don’t overstress your hair. This shampoo won’t leave your hair feeling greasy and is cruelty-free, so suds up without guilt. It also doesn’t matter how often you shampoo your hair, just that you do wash it whenever you get it wet. 

2. Prose Custom ShampooImage22

Sometimes it’s hard to narrow down what makes your hair so stressed and frizzed out in the first place. Rather than use multiple shampoos and other hair products to tame your hair, consider making your own custom blend of shampoo to give your tresses a boost. 

Here is where Prose comes in. This is a shampoo that is created by the user (take a hair quiz to help you make your own) and take the results from your quiz to determine what you need for your hair. If you have both environmental and genetic factors contributing to your frizzy hair woes, a custom shampoo may best meet your needs. 

Why we like it: you get to customize the shampoo based on what bothers you most about your hair. The more honest you are in your hair quiz, the better your results can be in the end product. However, if you aren’t sure what is really making your hair stand on end, speak to a hair specialist before ordering any custom shampoo to ensure you choose what’s best for your hair. 

3. Umberto Giannini Banana Butter Shampoo


With a name like banana butter, how can this shampoo not catch our attention as a top contender for the best shampoos for frizzy hair? Think of this shampoo as a healthy smoothie for your head. Both silicone and sulfate free to keep your tresses from being irritated and weighed down, this is a shampoo that is great for all hair textures, even those with very curly hair. 

What makes this shampoo great for taming the mighty frizz? Banana and coconut oil work together to coat dry hair with moisture and to restore it to a lustrous, bouncing, and manageable sheen. It also contains potassium, vitamins A, B, C, and E, and more. You’ll be able to tame your tresses without leaving any residue.

Just remember that less is more: you only need a small amount of shampoo to clean your hair, even if it’s long. Start at the scalp and roots and let the suds wash down to the ends of your hair to prevent the ends from becoming dry.

4. Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo


If your hair woes are caused by living in a very dry or very humid climate — both of which can wreak havoc on hair — then you need a shampoo that helps keep your tresses in balance. This shampoo is designed specifically for people with curly hair, although it can benefit anyone who wishes to tame their hair strands when the weather won’t cooperate. 

This shampoo works by using sericin, a silk protein, to coat and protect hair and keep it smooth. The molecules in this protein create a barrier against the elements, keeping hair tame and refreshed all day long. Cruelty-free and free of additives you don’t want, this is a shampoo worth a try if you are entirely at the mercy of the weather when you style your hair for the day. 

As a bonus, this shampoo has UV-protection elements as well. This helps keep color-treated hair safe and protects your head and hair in general from the sun’s harmful rays, thus earning this shampoo a spot on our coveted list of best shampoos for frizzy hair. 

5. Not Your Mother’s Smooth Moves Shampoo


Want to make your hair smoother and healthier but have a smaller budget? Not Your Mother’s line of shampoos and conditioners, including this one for frizzy hair, is not only within budget but effective as well. Enjoy treating your tresses with this vegan shampoo without spending a lot of money. 

We love what this shampoo doesn’t have in it. There are no dyes, sulfates, gluten, parabens, or phthalates, so if you have a sensitive scalp or just want a no-nonsense approach to frizz control, this may be the product for you. 

Keep in mind that the more natural a shampoo is, the less of a lather it may have when it’s used. This doesn’t mean you should use more, just lather as normal and enjoy the natural squeaky clean results sans chemicals that make other shampoos suds up a ton. 

6. Alterna Anti-Frizz Shampoo


A great trend we love to see in anti-frizz shampoos is this: nature-inspired and derived ingredients. This Alterna brand shampoo doesn’t disappoint either. The leading ingredient in this shampoo that aims to tame unruly hair is bamboo. Sourced in an environmentally sound way, the bamboo works to increase blood circulation in the scalp and hair follicles for stronger, more bonded hair. Your scalp will be healthier too as a bonus.

Kendi oil is also present in this shampoo. This lightweight oil works to smooth and protect the hair against the sun, heat, drying out, and even moisture. Along with the bamboo and other key ingredients, this anti-frizz shampoo is worth looking out for. 

7. Oribe Hair Alchemy Shampoo


This shampoo hits the middle range of our list because it’s got a lot of qualities thirsty and frizzy hair demands, even if it is a bit of a larger investment than other shampoos on the market. This award-winning shampoo is great for all hair types and styles and penetrates deeply into hair to help restore and revive it from within. 

What’s in this shampoo is pretty impressive. Ingredients include chia seeds, the aforementioned bamboo, honeysuckle extract, and daisy. The combination of these quality ingredients, along with blends of hyaluronic acid, allows hair to recharge and regenerate in ways that other shampoos may not be able to deliver. 

If your hair is extremely damaged due to dryness, dyeing, or over-styling, then this can be a great shampoo for you to try. Allow for several uses before seeing the results you desire. 

8. Redken Frizz Dismiss Sulfate-Free Shampoo


It’s not a list of the best anti-frizz shampoos without Redken, a household quality brand of shampoo and other hair care products. This sulfate-free shampoo uses babassu oil extracted sustainably to allow hair to remain shiny, smooth, and free of frizz. 

We’re impressed by babassu oil, as it’s a unique ingredient originally derived from palm trees in the rainforest. It’s what the oil does for hair that makes it great, although it has other uses as well: rich in antioxidants, this oil can help repair hair and keep cellular damage from environmental factors and stressors at bay. If you have hair that is super stressed, this shampoo may be the relaxation your hair needs to thrive. 

Enjoy sudsing your hair with this soothing and repairing shampoo. Since babassu oil is also used to help wounds heal and speed skin repair, it can work wonders for your scalp as well. 

9. Living Proof Frizz Shampoo


This shampoo means business when it comes to getting rid of frizz, and we’re listening! It’s hard to find the balance between nourishing hair and making it slightly greasy, yet this product manages to keep hair clean and lightweight.  

What’s the secret? Among others, Living Proof puts marine-obtained polysaccharides in their shampoo to help promote healthy hair from root to tip. While they don’t divulge much of what’s in their shampoo, their anti-frizz shampoo is vegan, and they claim that users can see results in smoother hair in as little as one use. 

Always do your research before choosing any shampoo for your frizzy hair, but for the record, this choice is paraben-, sulfate-, and formaldehyde-free, as well as being safe for chemically treated hair.

10. Aussie Miracle Waves Anti-Frizz Hemp Shampoo


The first in our lineup of the best shampoos for frizzy hair that has hemp as a leading ingredient, this is a shampoo worth looking at. 

You’ve likely seen this in the stores already since it’s a common drugstore brand, making this not only a quality product but one you can get your hands on while grocery shopping as well. 

What makes hemp so great for combating frizz? Well, it’s ideal for battling the dryness that comes along with frizzy hair and adds volume and shine while working hard to tame your mane. 

As a bonus, this shampoo smells amazing with natural bergamot, plum, and apple scents. Enjoy healthier, shinier hair with this paraben and cruelty-free shampoo. 

11. FoxieBae Maliboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo


If you’re big on social media, you may have seen this shampoo before. Mainly geared toward people with lots of hair, this is a product that helps to tone down wild tresses and make them more manageable and shinier. 

We’re attracted to this shampoo not just because of the hype, it’s all the oils that help to nourish hair that are packed into one single bottle. Macadamia oil makes hair shiny and sleek, coconut oil gets to work on those split ends, argan oil tackles all the frizz, and kukui oil helps protect hair against the sun’s UV rays and heat from styling appliances. 

In short, this shampoo packs a decent punch, and we’re all here for it. You just may end up with hair so glamorous, you’ll be rushing to post your hair selfies online. 

12. Drybar Liquid Glass Smoothing Shampoo


Smooth, sleek, and lusciously controllable hair? We’ll drink to that! This shampoo features vegan keratin for reinforcing each individual strand of hair, starting with the root and working its way up. The result? Hair that has locked-in moisture for all-day frizz control. 

This shampoo features other powerful ingredients, including murumuru butter, which is as much fun to say as it is to apply to the hair. This helps add much-needed softness to stress and frizzled stresses while maintaining bounce and volume — no easy feat to accomplish! Neroli oil adds shine and more frizz control for good measure.

If you like hair that is moisturized and cared for without being totally weighed down, then this is a shampoo we think you’d like to consider. As a bonus, it’s also free of parabens and other additives you don’t want and smells dreamy. Enjoy hints of vanilla and amber for hair that is, dare we say, sensual!

13. Lolavie Restorative Shampoo


We’re not ones to endorse any type of product just because a celebrity has created or endorsed it, but this selection deserves it. You may know who Jennifer Aniston is, but did you know she has a hair care product line? And it’s good stuff, too! 

If your frizzy hair is caused by dryness and weak tresses, then try this shampoo out. It’s formulated with lots of vegan additives, including bamboo and chia seeds, to give your scalp a healthy boost while offering hydration and nourishment to your tired, stressed-out hair. Added B vitamins and biotin make this shampoo a well-rounded addition to our list of frizz-prevention shampoos. 

You take a daily vitamin for your overall health, right? Consider this shampoo a vitamin boost for your hair. 

14. Eva NYC Mane Magic 10-in-1 Shampoo 


We believe in magic, and we believe in this shampoo. Its combination of hair-strengthening, lifting, volumizing, and de–frizzing ingredients caught our attention, and we think it will catch yours as well. 

Pretty and ethical packaging aside, this shampoo delivers a lot of beneficial stuff to tired and dried-out tresses. Keratin and argan oil work together to combat breakage and weak, brittle hair to make strands smoother, easier to manage, and less susceptible to stresses from the environment. 

We also chose this shampoo because it’s eco-friendly and cruelty-free, which we love to see in great hair care. If you want an all-around product that also helps to tackle your frizzy hair days, give this magical shampoo a try. 

15. Bondi Boost Anti-Frizz Shampoo


If you want to tackle frizz head-on, this Australian brand has you covered. This is the first shampoo we’ve come across that has quinoa in it for hair health, and we’re intrigued. Quinoa, we’re thrilled to find out, helps to protect the hair against free radicals and other environmental stressors, while making hair shiny and manageable. 

Another reason this shampoo is on our list is that it also contains argan kernel oil, which helps to rehydrate super-dried hair so it can grow healthily and be less prone to split ends and other breakage. Topping off its ingredient list with coconut oil for a nourished scalp and hair, this is a shampoo that can really help transform your locks. 

Try this shampoo if you want a simple approach to frizz management and really just want to put a little dimensional shine in your hair. Your thirty tresses will thank you. 

16. Pureology Smooth Perfection Anti-Frizz Shampoo 


Who doesn’t want perfectly smooth hair? When you’re looking for a shampoo that gives your hair some shine and is both smooth and smells delicious, this may be just the shampoo for you.

Breathe in the marshmallowy goodness of this shampoo with just a hint of the woods for an earthy yet sweet experience. And is that cocoa we smell? Yes! This shampoo is a wonderful sensory experience, which is partly why we chose it for our list.

As far as hair nourishment and frizz control is concerned, this shampoo ticks the boxes there as well. Camellia blossom helps to make your hair super nourished and smooth as silk, while the addition of shea butter — a classic go-to for skin and hair moisturizing — makes hair even more smooth and workable. Your scalp benefits from shea butter as well, and a healthy scalp means healthy hair. 

17. John Frieda Frizz Ease Weightless Wonder


If your hair is frizzy because you’re always out in the sun, frequently dye it, or use styling products like straighteners, blow dryers, and alcohol-based hair sprays and gels, this may be what you’re looking for. John Frieda is one of those hair care brands that most people recognize and is widely available. 

While this shampoo can be used on all hair types, if you have curly hair, you may prefer the dream curls version. Either way, you’re sure to get great results by using a product specifically formulated for damaged hair. 

Infused with aloe vera water to keep hair hydrated without weighing it down, this shampoo can help revive your hair, even if it’s damaged to the max. 

There are several different versions of the Frizz Ease line, so choose the one that is best for you. We like this one because dealing with fine and frizzy hair is no joke, but you can pick whatever works best for your hair type. 

18. TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo


This shampoo claims to detangle hair, smooth those stubborn flyaway hairs, and make hair shiny, soft, and free of frizz. How? We wondered the same thing and were impressed enough to add this product to our list of the best shampoos for frizzy hair. 

As the name implies, this shampoo uses keratin to help strengthen and reinforce hair. Another ingredient in this shampoo stood out to us — marula oil. This oil works to help plump and heal hair since it’s full of fatty and amino acids.

Try this shampoo if you’re on a budget and need all-around but not intense hair repair and maintenance. You’ll find your hair much easier to style as a result. 

19. Verb Ghost Shampoo


Aptly named due to how this shampoo is so lightweight it almost doesn’t exist, this product is worthy of making our list. Great for all types of hair (especially super fine and flyaway), you can manage your tresses without weighing them down.

Moringa oil works to tame wild hair so it’s more manageable and less likely to encounter frizzy days. This shampoo is ideal for you if your hair not only has its frizzy moments but is also brittle to the touch and dull without shine. 

Regular use should make your hair more noticeable in all the right ways. Pair this shampoo with Verb conditioner for even better results if you have extra-frizzy hair. 

20. Virtue Smooth Shampoo


Here’s a shampoo that is ideal for those who have textured or very thick hair. A worthy contender for our list and full of unique ingredients we haven’t seen in other shampoo products, this is a shampoo worth seeking if you have tried and failed with other brands. 

Explore what the herb gotu kola can do for your hair with its smoothing and strengthening powers. Pink pomelo fills your hair with needed nutrients and vitamins, such as vitamins A, B1, and C. Added phospholipids work hard to tackle the frizz you want to be controlled. 

Altogether, this is a powerful shampoo that can make your hair smoother and more manageable over time, even if you have a lot of it to take care of! 

21. Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil


There’s a trend here in seemingly invisible shampoos fighting frizz and flyaways, and this one makes the end of our list. However, that doesn’t mean this shampoo is lacking in any way, far from it. Enjoy this nearly weightless yet oil-infused shampoo to make your stubborn hair more manageable than ever. 

We love the six different oils used in this shampoo, including sunflower and sweet almond. Enjoy how these oil additives not only make your hair shinier, silkier, and better able to resist frizz in any weather, but also how they make your hair smell amazing as well. 

When it comes to choosing a great shampoo to tackle frizz, remember that consistency is key. Give any shampoo you try several washes before making a final verdict and keep your hair type and style in mind as you choose a brand for your particular needs. 

Taming frizzy hair is about more than just treating the problem, it’s also about treating the cause. Our lineup of the best shampoos for frizzy hair is sure to lead you to your best anti-frizz solution!
