The struggle is *so* real.

While catwalks and celebrities have taken to embracing frizz and making all of us with frizzy hair breath a sigh of relief (and sleep in those few minutes in the AM when we would be taming our flyways), sometimes we want the frizz to just go away already. So, we spoke with Rita Hazan stylist Christine Healey to get the 411 on fighting the fluff for those days when all you want is a sleek-looking hairstyle.

1. When Air Drying Your Hair

If you're air drying your 'do, avoiding frizz starts right when you step out of the shower. Healey recommends using a towel to "blot" your hair, as giving your hair a rub down will leave hair frizzy when dry. If you have serious frizz that you are trying to fight, take a styling cream with plenty of moisture (we like Bumble and Bumble bb Styling Creme) and distribute evenly throughout the hair using a wide tooth comb. Most importantly, don't touch your hair until it's totally dry!

2. When Sleeping

Fight frizz while you sleep with a satin pillow case, which will reduce friction. And don't make your pony too tight before your go to bed—Healey also suggests using a soft hair tie.

3. When Trimming Your Hair 

Split ends can be bad news for avoiding frizzy hair, because the end can split all the way up the strand, causing it to frizz out. Try and get your ends trimmed every 6-8 weeks, and use a oil on the tips to keep them moisturized—Healey likes Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil

4. When Blow-Drying Your Hair 

When using a blow dryer, Healey says to use an anti-humidity smoother or cream which will seal the hair cuticle and make sure that your hair can get 100% dry. Also, coat strands with a frizz fighting serum pre blowout (we like John Frieda Frizz Ease Miracle Recovery Serum) to battle frizz even more. Lastly, make sure to direct the air flow down the hair shaft when drying, and using a ceramic blowdryer (like this BaByliss Pro) will help your frizz-fighting cause.

5. When Showering

"Hair is more frizz-prone if it's dehydrated," Healey says, and suggests using Rita Hazan Weekly Remedy Treatment in the shower for intense moisture. When it comes to regular shampoo and conditioner, she recommends finding products with coconut oil, Shea Butter, or Argan Oil. Also, a deep-conditioning hair mask never hurts.
