Jan 30 2014 - 5:00am

Do you have flyaways galore? No doubt frizziness is a year-round issue. But now that the warmer-weathered humidity-induced frizz is pretty much no longer the cause of extreme pouffiness, lots of us get the frizzies from merely wearing scarves, hats, and gloves — not to mention the low moisture levels in the air.

Famed stylist John Frieda [1], along with Harry Josh, gave us tips on eliminating frizz on wet locks [2]. However, let's say you just don't have time to go through the whole blow-drying process, or your already-styled hair is showing signs of frizz galore. Here are three simple tips from the stylists on battling frizz in a flash, all on dry (as in not wet) locks. To get their expert advice, just keep reading.

  1. Dry Blow-Dry: Who says you have to catch your hair when it's wet to prevent frizz? Simply start off by applying a pea-size amount of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Hair Serum [3] ($9, originally $12) on dry hair. Working in sections, use a round brush followed by a blow-dryer with an air-flow attachment to encourage the hair to lie straight.
  2. Create a Barrier: For a quick fix, simply repel moisture with an antihumidity hairspray, like John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray [4] ($6) or Garnier Fructis Style Anti-Humidity Hairspray [5] ($4).
  3. In a Pinch: Don't have product available at the moment? No worries. Simply wet your fingertips with water and lightly dab your fingers over the frizz to let it dry flat. Talk about recession-proof beauty, eh?
