Luscious volume and effortless, tousled texture? We love to see it. Frizz and flyaways? Depending on the look you’re going for, not so much. Throw in the summer heat and humidity, and it can seem like a Sisyphean task to maintain a sleek, smooth ‘do.
As iconic celebrity hairstylist Garren previously told Refinery29, “Frizzy hair usually requires more than one product — it can’t just be a shampoo-and-go solution.” And while layering serums and styling products are often a key part of that routine, conditioner is an indispensable step to taming frizz.
Ahead, we’ve combed our favorite beauty brands to bring the most highly-reviewed frizz-fighting conditioners at every price point. From a $5 drugstore gem (which also happens to be my personal go-to) to luxe formulas, keep clicking to find your new favorite conditioner for frizzy hair.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission. Best Natural
Briogeo Farewell Frizz Smoothing Conditioner
Skin-care ingredients like argan and rosehip oils help transform dry, lackluster hair into smooth, healthy strands.
What They’re Saying: “I’ve only tried this conditioner once and I saw an immediate change with my hair. My ends feel so much softer and healthier. Typically with my hair I could comb my hands through and I would have some hair come with it or some of my hair would just break because of all the heat tools I used on my hair but now that doesn’t happen. I highly recommend this.”

What They’re Saying: “I work outside in heat and humidity in the summer and this works great! I don’t use other products in my hair and this shampoo and conditioner duo used daily works great at fighting frizz!”

NatureLab Tokyo Perfect Smooth Conditioner
This J-Beauty brand’s smoothing conditioner has ingredients that wouldn’t sound out of place in your kitchen — quinoa and yuzu, for starters — to feed your hair all the nutrients it needs to shine. Plus, youkeep the bottle and buy refill pouches for an eco-option.
What They’re Saying: “This is the only conditioner I’ve tried in years that actually does anything. I’ve tried high and low [brands] but this actually leaves hair immediately silky. You don’t need to use a lot either. It’s helped make my extremely thick, straight hair less frizzy and more manageable. It smells really nice too. Would definitely repurchase. I trust this product line just from the conditioner..seems like they don’t skip on quality ingredients.”
