For better or worse, hair frizz is the great beauty equalizer. It doesn't matter how silky-smooth your style is when you leave the house—encounter enough humidity or a few drops of rain, and a sleek blowout or perfectly coiffed curls go *poof.* Sometimes it looks dope as hell, but if you want to fight the fight somedays (we all do), we have some products built for the battle. Since everyone’s hair texture is entirely unique, there’s not one end-all-be-all when it comes to an anti-frizz spray/cream/serum, so we found the 17 best on the market so you can mix and match depending on your hair type. And remember, some days it’s OK to embrace the frizz—consider it the ultimate in French girl hair.
