Anti-Frizz Smoothing Creams are multi-tasking, one-stop products. If you are looking to simplify and streamline your arsenal of hair products, this is the one item to keep. Hair creams leave the hair silky and smooth, and can be used for a wet, curly looks or a sleek blow dry. If you are sporting a pony tail or sophisticated up-do for an event, the tiniest amount can be smoothed over the style to keep it in place and stop fly-away hair. Anti-frizz creams also conceal damage and temporarily seal split ends. Most formulas contain oils in a cream suspension, which allows them to penetrate deep without building up or getting too greasy. I chose the following based on price point, fragrance and effectiveness.
No other product comes close to After Party. I love everything about it, from the scent to the consistency. Although slightly pricey, this product eliminates the need for multiple styling products. I can use After Party with some hair spray and I'm good to go. It is perfect year around, so I don't have to purchase new products every season. This anti-frizz styling cream is rich, so only a small amount is needed. Read Full Review
Bed Head by TIGI After Party is my all-time favorite hair styling cream. Used on wet hair, it leaves my curls defined, polished and frizz-free. Used on dry hair with a flat iron, it smoothes out kinks and leaves my tresses silky, moisturized and glossy. The formula contains ultra-rich Castor seed oil, which can leave hair greasy and hard to style. Bed Head managed to harness the moisturizing properties of Castor seed oil and suspend it in a reflective cream that is light-weight, conditioning and absolutely amazing.
Rusk has been manufacturing this product for over 12 years, with good reason. While other companies change their classic formulations to reflect new trends, DeepShine consistently produces this amazing anti-frizz cream with the same formulation. I love the versatility of this product, and I love that the formula never changes. It can be used on wet hair, dry hair, cork-screw curly hair as well as straight hair. The scent is intoxicating. It is summer time in a tube. The heat of styling tools and the sun seem to amplify the moisturizing properties and conditioning effects of this product. The deep sea extracts protect hair from UV rays as well as heat damage. Read Full Review
Rusk DeepShine Lustre Shine Enhancing Lusterizer is my favorite anti-frizz cream following After Party. Every single Rusk product that I have tried has been amazing, at a reasonable price. You can use this polishing cream after your favorite shampoo and conditioner or with the Rusk DeepShine line for maximum results. This frizz-fighter packs in natural lipids, proteins and botanicals to enhance the aquatic scent as well as its rejuvenating effects. The formula is a super-creamy, ultra-moisturizing consistency with a pearlescent glimmer. Only a tiny bit is needed as too much of this product will leave you with oil-slick hair. My recommendation is to start with a pea-size dollop in your hand. Work it through wet hair, starting at the ends of the hair and gradually working your way up to the roots. Blow dry hair. Rub in half of a pea-sized dollop after blow-drying but prior to using the flat iron. Straighten hair with a flat iron and finish off with a few shots of hair spray.
The intoxicating scent of the MoroccanOil line is all you need to be a repeat customer. No other company comes close to matching the relaxing, sensual fragrance of this line. It normally takes a substantial trim to get my hair this bouncy, but MoroccanOil Curl Defining Cream really works well with curly hair. The formula is light enough to allow curls to form into their natural shape, yet contains an impressive amount of emollients to moisturize, protect and eliminate frizz. Read Full Review
MoroccanOil Curl Defining Cream is great when trying to pull off jaw-dropping ringlets. To all the ladies out there with unruly, curly hair: this cream was made for you. If you aren't using this product, you should be. MoroccanOil utilizes Argon oil, which is super hydrating yet light weight. It penetrates the hair shaft with out build-up or grease. My curls come out perfect and require very few touch-ups after using this cream. For best results, shampoo and condition with MorrocanOil shampoo and conditioner. Rinse hair with cold water to seal the cuticle and seal in shine. Gently pat hair with a towel to absorb excess moisture and apply a liberal amount of MoroccanOil Curl defining Cream. Top off with your favorite hair spray.
This anti-frizz cream is perfect for warmer, humid days. It is the perfect product to use for a sophisticated bridal up-do. Simply work a small amount through hair, blow-dry and style. The product is stable enough to hold a look for hours, yet flexible enough to re-shape specific areas into curls or straight pieces. The finished product looks healthy, shiny and natural, which allows for great photography. Read Full Review
Goldwell Style Sign Spun Shine Gloss Shine Cream is a favorite for humid days. In the warmer months, a hair oil or cream will smooth curly hair straight, only to revert to its naturally curly texture once exposed to rain or humidity. This anti-frizz cream not only moisturizes and protects hair, it is a real styling agent. The cream-gel formula has medium control, so it holds the style in place with out getting stiff. Once dry, hair will remain silky with a high gloss-shine.
Aquage Biomega Behave Smoothing Elixer is a light gel with a touch of control. It does not leave the hair stiff or unmanageable. What makes this product special is the advanced ingredients. The fatty acids are small enough to penetrate the hair and moisturize as the product claims. It also contains Keratin protein, which helps fill in damaged areas and protects strands from the environment, as well as heat styling tools. It is very rare to find a product line that incorporates deep-moisturizers and Keratin in the same formula. Read Full Review
Aquage Biomega Behave Smoothing Elixer incorporates one of the most treasured beauty products: coconut oil. The formula also contains deep-sea extracts as well as Keratin amino acids and omega-3 fatty acids. While many pricey products contain moisturizing ingredients, some moisture molecules are too big to penetrate into the cell matrix of the hair. Translation: the product never fully absorbs and lays on the outer cuticle of the hair. The result is difficult-to-style, greasy hair. I love that this styling product is light-weight yet effective. If your hair is in desperate need of moisture, this is the perfect anti-frizz cream for you.
