When it comes to hair, nothing is more frustrating than having to deal with the dreaded frizz. It doesn’t help that Singapore’s perennial humidity almost always guarantees uncooperative, poofy hair. While it might seem like a never ending battle with your mane, don’t give up just yet. Ahead, we round up some of the best hair products to combat frizzy hair and help you on your quest to achieve smooth, luscious locks.
1. Joon Haircare Saffron Hair Elixir Oil ($41 for 33ml)
Housed in a sleek glass bottle, what will immediately catch your eye is the bright red threads drifting in the luxurious elixir. Indeed, this oil harnesses the potency of precious Saffron, Pistachio and Rose which have been used by Persians for centuries, to strengthen, nourish and smoothen your tresses. It’s lightweight consistency leaves no grease and delivers superb hydration while banishing frizz in an instant. Bonus: It smells absolutely divine, an exotic and rich scent with a hint of saffron.
How To: Using the dropper, add a few drops of the oil on your palm. Rub your hands together to warm the oil and smooth it over damp or dry hair, adding more as needed.
2. Coco & Eve Like A Virgin Super Nourishing Coconut & Fig Hair Masque ($31 for 60ml)
You’ve probably seen this one blow up on social media a while back, and for good reason. If you’ve been putting your hair through a lot lately, consider adding this conditioning masque to your haircare regime. It’s completely free from sulphates and parabens, and is powered by 5 key ingredients: coconut, fig, shea butter, argan oil and linseed. One wash is all it takes to revive dry and damaged hair, leaving it silky soft and frizz-free.
How To: After shampooing, towel dry and evenly distribute the masque into your hair. Leave for 10 minutes (or longer) and then rinse. For a more intensive treatment, put on a shower cap and leave it on overnight before rinsing. Use 2-3 times a week on dry hair, 1-2 times a week on normal hair and once a week on oily hair, avoiding the scalp.
3. Mise-en-scène Perfect Serum Coco Water ($15.90 for 70ml)
If you’re a K-beauty fan, you’ll be happy to know that this popular South Korean brand recently launched its holy grail Perfect Serum range in Singapore. A wonderful concoction of 7 different oils including Argan oil, Camellia oil, Jojoba oil and Marula oil, the serums quench, repair and nourish hair. Pick from four different variations depending on your hair preferences and needs. My personal favourite is the Perfect Serum Coco Water which is incredibly lightweight and won’t weigh your hair down—perfect for our climate. I’m hooked by its refreshing aqua fragrance that takes me on a tropical holiday by the beach aka the closest thing to a holiday I’ll be getting during this time.
How To: Dispense a few pumps of serum on your palm. Rub your hands together to warm the serum and smooth it over damp or dry hair, adding more as needed.
4. Kristin Ess Weightless Shine Working Serum ($27 for 50ml)
True to its name, this lightweight serum brings life and shine back to dull hair while taming pesky flyaways and frizz. Inside this product is first-of-its-kind Zip-Up technology, a proprietary blend of protein-packed conditioners to protect hair and ‘zip up’ dry and split ends. While this serum is created with wet hair in mind, you can definitely use it on dry hair for added shine and separation. And did I mention it smells amazing?
How To: Add a pea-sized amount to your palm. Rub your hands together to warm the serum and work into towel dried hair, focusing on the ends. Blow dry or air dry as desired. For added shine and smoothness, finish off with another drop or two once the hair has dried.
5. Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Turban ($48)
How To: After washing, gently squeeze excess water from hair and lean forward, flipping hair over. Place the turban over your hair with the button at the nape of your neck. Gently twist a few times, ensuring all your hair is kept in the towel. Flip the towel back and secure around the button using the elastic hoop.
