Put the fate of frizz in your hands and take a look at this roundup of hair care innovations that work to give you that glossy, sleek look you wanted in the first place.

You want fly-aways to hit the road, but you don’t want to be left with a hairstyle that can’t be flipped or touched—or worse, one that feels crunchy, overly oily, or sticky.

And because it is a fluid lotion, it won’t weight your hair down. Like many of the other products, it can be doubled as a dry-hair product to immediately disarm frizz.
