Very important reminder: Frizz and flyaways are 100 percent beautiful and normal, and there’s absolutely no “need” to smooth them out (hell, I’m writing this while wearing a half-up topknot that’s frizzy, wavy, and, yes, cute AF). But that doesn’t mean you can’t go the smoother, sleeker route if and when you want to, since it is your hair, and you should do whatever you damn want with it. Your first step to creating a frizz-free look? Loading up on a hydrating shampoo that cuts back on flyaways without weighing your hair down.
But before you run to the store and grab just any ol’ shampoo with the words “for frizzy hair” on the label—know that you’ll need a formula that caters to your hair and its specific needs. So, to make it easy for you, I rounded up the 15 most hydrating, shine-enhancing, smoothing shampoos for each and every hair type. Go forth and find your match.

Best Hydrating Shampoo for Frizzy Hair
Adwoa Beauty Baomint Moisturizing Shampoo
Hot tip: Your frizz actually might be a sign that your hair is lacking moisture. That’s where this hydrating shampoo comes into play—the formula’s aloe leaf juice and baobab oil are combined to gently smooth and condition your hair as you cleanse. And as an added bonus, it’s also got wintergreen, spearmint, and peppermint oils to soothe scalp irritation.
Best Shampoo for Curly, Frizzy Hair
Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo
If you’re going for a smoother, flyaway-free look, you’ll want to avoid humidity at all costs. This sulfate-free shampoo helps you get there, thanks to the formula’s shea butter, murumuru butter, and ceramides (all of which help hydrate your cuticles and smooth the surface of your curls). Just don’t forget to follow up with a creamy conditioner, alright?

Best Shampoo for Frizzy Hair and Split Ends
IGK Thirsty Girl Coconut Milk Anti-Frizz Shampoo
This cutely packaged shampoo does two things: The formula’s coconut milk helps smooth and strengthen brittle split ends, while the hyaluronic acid locks in moisture and eliminates frizz. Oh, and it’s also free of sulfates, parabens, and petrolatum. Impressive, right?
Best Shampoo for Color-Treated, Frizzy Hair
Pureology Smooth Perfection Shampoo

Best Shampoo for Weak, Frizzy Hair
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair Super Moisture Shampoo
This shampoo for frizz and flyaways is packed with hair-strengthening ingredients—think: biotin (which prevents breakage), antioxidant-rich algae extract, and B vitamins. Impressive formula aside, it’s lightweight, hydrating, and leaves your hair smooth as hell.
Best Shampoo for Damaged, Frizzy Hair
Olaplex No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo
Olaplex No. 4 is the holy-grail shampoo for anyone with damaged, bleached, or dyed hair, thanks to its ability to repair broken keratin bonds in your hair shaft. Every time you use it, expect your hair to look and feel healthier (with noticeably less frizz and flyaways too).
Best Shampoo for Fine, Frizzy Hair
Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo
As anyone with fine, frizzy hair knows well, finding a shampoo that smoothes your flyaways without totally weighing you down is a total b*tch. That’s where this lightweight, sulfate-free shampoo comes into play—it cleans and soothes your fluffy hair super gently without the residue.
Best Shampoo for Dry, Frizzy Hair
Rahua Hydration Shampoo
This shampoo for frizzy hair packs a seriously moisturizing punch, courtesy of the Amazonian oils in its formula (morete, rahua, and sacha inchi). Even the driest of strands are left softer, shinier, and smoother.
Best Shampoo for Coarse, Frizzy Hair
Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo
This aesthetically pleasing shampoo is a godsend for coarse, frizzy hair types. The hero ingredient is minuta olive, which blasts hair with fatty acids and vitamin E to smooth frizz and flyaways every time you wash.
Best Eco-Friendly Shampoo for Frizzy Hair
Ethique Frizz Wrangler Shampoo Bar for Normal-Dry Hair
Okay, okay, this isn’t your average shampoo, but hear me out: This little bar—which has 1,000+ glowing reviews on Amazon—is formulated with frizz-eliminators like coconut and cocoa butter, and it’s the equivalent to three bottles of liquid shampoo. Caring about your hair and the environment aren’t mutually exclusive, y’all.
Best Anti-Humidity Shampoo for Frizzy Hair
Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Anti-Frizz Shampoo
If your hair frizzes the very second you step outside, you need this anti-humidity shampoo in your life right now. The lightweight-but-creamy formula leaves your hair soft and glossy—and actually keeps it that way long after you step out of the shower.
Best Everyday Shampoo for Frizzy Hair
R+Co Television Perfect Hair Shampoo
This cute lil shampoo gets its frizz-fighting abilities from glycerin (which helps maintain your hair’s moisture balance), babassu seed oil (a crazy-effective hydrator), and marigold flower extract (which soothes dry scalp and dandruff). So, uh, yeah, it kinda targets all of your hair’s needs at once.
Best-Scented Shampoo for Frizzy Hair
The One by Frederic Fekkai The Tamed One Anti-Frizz Shampoo
My favorite thing about this shampoo for frizzy hair is the lavender scent—it lingers softly in your hair for hours after you use it, almost like you sprayed on a super-subtle perfume. Oh, and it also minimizes flyaways, frizz, and dry strands.
