Let’s picture a certain scenario: you need to go out somewhere and you spend an hour styling your hair with tools and creams and sprays, and when you’re satisfied with how you look, you pick up your bag and mask and head out. Within five minutes, those very strands which you so loving styled have decided to rebel, and all your efforts have gone down the drain.
If this sounds like a familiar scenario to you, welcome to the frizz queens club! Frizz is a problem that seems impossible to beat, especially in a humid country like India, where most of the year sees high humidity except the winter months.
Wikipedia defines frizz like this: “hair that does not align with the surrounding hairs, but stands up or curls independently, creating a fuzzy or irregular texture.” Anyone with frizz knows that this definition hits the nail on the head! That’s what frizz does to us – makes us look fuzzy and irregular!
There are many causes for frizz, the main one being humidity, when dry hair strands try to absorb the moisture from the hair, causing them to swell. So the solution here is obvious – give your hair enough moisture so that it doesn’t have to beg for it, that to standing up!
To fix this solution, we’ve rounded up some of the best natural frizz control products in India. The best part is that they are free from icky stuff like parabens and phthalates, making sure that your frizz problem is solved without leaving you with any unpleasant side effects.
10 Natural Frizz Control Products in India
As we know, dry hair is the reason hair tends to frizz up, and the biggest reason for hair drying out is because of the ingredients in our shampoos. That’s why this shampoo from Omved specifically targets dry hair, by providing it with all the hydration it needs while cleansing it.
The shampoo contains a special formulation with plant proteins from Ylang Ylang oil, Juniper Berry oil and Patchouli oil as well as pro-Vitamin B5 complex which is designed to provide intense hydration along the entire hair shaft, so your hair needn’t beg for moisture from the air around it!
Sometimes a plain conditioner is just not enough, especially during times of intense humidity, like the monsoons. That’s why you need a leave in conditioner, like this one from Juicy Chemistry. A leave in conditioner ensures the moisture stays locked in your hair, whatever the weather is like outside.
This product contains amla, apricot and sweet almond oil, all incredibly nourishing and moisturizing ingredients. The use of this is similar to your regular conditioner, only it is not washed out. After shampooing and if you like, conditioning, pat dry the hair and apply the leave in conditioner along the strands, distributing with a wide toothed comb.
The Juicy Chemistry Leave in Conditioner is available at Rs 413.00 for 25 g.

If there’s one ingredient every DIY beauty influencer swears by, it’s ACV, or apple cider vinegar. With numerous benefits for skin, hair and overall health, this is one ingredient you simply can’t do without. Apple cider vinegar restores the pH balance of the scalp, preventing dandruff and also sealing in the cuticle of the hair shaft.
The result is shiny hair that’s completely frizz-free. This conditioner by Mamaearth combines ACV along with some other grat ingredients like argan oil and almond oil, providing hair with some much needed Vitamin E and loads of moisture.
The Mamaearth Argan Conditioner for Frizz-free Hair is available at Rs 349 for 250 ml.

Just like a body butter gives your skin some extra hydration and protects from dryness, a hair cream gives your strands a little extra moisture to prevent frizz.
This cream also contains argan oil, lime oil along with hemp seed oil and neroli essential oil. In spite of so many oils, the hair cream is quite light and sits easy even when applied to the scalp. It also strengthens hair and prevents breakage.
When you think of orange and cinnamon, you probably think of autumn smells or those simmers people put on the stove to make their home smell good naturally. However, few would consider these two as effective ingredients in the fight against frizz and dryness.
However, Biobloom has found that they work together, which is why we now have this anti-frizz conditioner. Vitamin C is all the rage these days in skincare, but it’s just as effective in haircare. Orange helps condition the hair and also prevents dandruff and extra greasiness. Cinnamon helps strengthen hair and keeps it moisturized all day long.
