There's nothing worse than perfecting a hairdo and then heading out only to find your tresses immediately frizz up and puff out. But thanks to a host of new products on the market, just a few small additions to your haircare regime can stop this from happening. We run through some of our top product tips to keep your locks glossy and frizz-free. It's a good idea to start with your shampoo. Kelly May, senior stylist at Neville Hair & Beauty, told Cover Media: "To help prevent unruly, frizzy or rebellious hair I recommend the use of good shampoo such as Kerastase's Discipline Bain Fluidealiste Smooth-in-Motion Shampoo. The added glycerin acts as a shield to block humidity leaving hair smooth, shiny and frizz-free."

Get frizz-free hair with these easy steps 

On the conditioner front, why not give Redken's Frizz Dismiss Conditioner a try? This conditioner provides smoothness, manageability and shine while protecting hair from humidity for lasting frizz control.

Once your hair is washed and conditioned, it's time to move onto styling. One product that's been hitting the headlines for all the right reasons in recent weeks is Color Wow's Dream Coat - a Supernatural Sealant that lasts up to three shampoos with just one use. It relies on a heat-activated polymer which works to compress, tighten and seal hair strands, effectively making tresses immune to humidity. It has the added benefit of not weighing hair down like many other similar products, with the reviews speaking for themselves. It's not the cheapest option out there, but well worth the pennies.

Or try TIGI's Bed Head Get Twisted Anti-Frizz Finishing Spray - a lightweight, fast-drying spray which contains nutrient-rich, super hydrating coconut water. Flexi-setting polymers lock in your style by providing long-lasting hold without stickiness, while anti-frizz agents fight humidity and other environmental enemies.

For a budget option, give Lee Stafford's Dehumidifier Spray a try. This product contains a combination of cosmetic silicone compounds, otherwise known as the Liquid Umbrella, which works to prevent frizz in humidity.
