Best Anti-Frizz Smoothing Cream
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.
TIGI Bed Head Afterparty Smoothing Cream
Rusk DeepShine Lustre Shine Enhancing Lusterizer Hair Styling Cream
MoroccanOil Curl Defining Cream
Goldwell Style Sign Spun Shine Gloss Shine Cream
Aquage Biomega Behave Smoothing Elixer
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 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.
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.
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 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.
