  • buy a good flat iron, and some SILK DROPS from walmart. They work wonders.

  • Go to and search for-
    Andis 1 1/2" Ceramic Flat Iron

    Got2B Crazy Sleek: Hot Smoothing Spray Flat Iron & Blow Dry

    Fx Special Effects: Flat Iron Spray

    I work in a salon and use all of these on a daily basis...they are amazing, and the prices are unbeatable. The last two can only be bought in the store though!!

  • Smear it with mayonnaise and wrap in warm wet towel, take a bath, rinse in shower, light shampoo and good conditioner. Won't hurt you and women having been doing it for years, Good luck.

  • Do you have a lot of breakage in your hair? If so, nothing will really fix that except a trim.

    If not, the best thing I've found (because I have a bit of the same issue) is to experiment with shampoos and find something that is formulated to "de frizz before it happens" (Right now I'm using Herbal Essences Long term relationship...It's a strengthening shampoo/conditioner and works well for my hair.) When you find a good one your hair will be better behaved when it comes to be styling time...And then I would go with what Mikayla_lynn says.

    Also, for a quick fix I've found Infusium 23 works well for defrizing. And a HUGE bottle is only like $5--a major plus in my book.
