One of summer’s major pitfalls is frizzy hair. If your hair is dry and damaged, or has been coloured or permed, the outer layer of the strand of hair becomes raised, thus causing frizz. This is especially true in the summertime when there’s excessive heat and humidity. So, stop fearing summer and get these products that can help to tame summer frizz. Your hair will thank you for it! —Jennifer Cox

It gently cleanses the hair to the root while supplying just the right amount of uniform, evenly distributed care to restore the hair fiber naturally.
The Leave-In Conditioner from OUAI ($36, available through Sephora Canada) is specially formatted to combat the frizzies, especially in summer. It also detangles hair and protects against heat and damage to reduce flyaways.
