Sweater hair. It’s the nicer way to describe the annoying frizz that accompanies the season. My long hair is, more frequently than not, flat on top from hats and a complete mess on the bottom thanks to the dry air and the daily routine of pulling on my fuzzy knitwear. Currently on rotation are these three products I’ve been using in an attempt to win the frizz fight.
Post shampoo, I’ve been using a dollop of the Pantene 3 Minute Miracle* as a step up treatment from my usual conditioner. It’s deceiving light in texture and spreads easily but it also does a great job at smoothing the ends of my hair. Compared to other Pantene conditioners, it seems to rinse cleaner but still leave my damp hair sleek and silky. And while I don’t think my hair is super damaged per say, I like how this has been working as my regular winter conditioner. Unlike richer masks which can weigh down finer hair if used too frequently, this one still leaves me with movement and bounce so its a good match for those with oilier hair who need just a little something extra.
For those with coarser or harder to manage hair, the Kerastase Chronologiste Oil* might be your better winter option. Beyond the fact that it smells so sophisticated, this oil has more of a serum like consistency and is both a treatment, protectant and styling product. At the salon, my stylist mixed this with a smoothing cream then round brushed my hair to bouncy perfection but it’s a little rich for me on the regular so I do use it more selectively. However, used on my mother’s permed hair, this lets her air dry with soft definition and less frizz so she’s a fan.
Of course I can’t end without mentioning this cult classic, the Frizz Ease Secret Weapon*. I’ve put off trying this for years because I always thought it would be a heavy cream but if you find the golden ratio (use less, add more) then it just might grow into your daily standby. As a finishing product, I like this to smooth down my fresh curls after fluffing my hair upside down for root volume or as a perfecting product when pulling my hair into a ponytail. With a light texture but no hold, it’s easy to get too product happy but I find a dime sized amount is just right for taming sweater hair and second day frizz.
