Fighting frizz is no easy task on its own—combine that with fine hair that tends to fall flat, and things get even trickier. While many smoothing products promise shine and frizz-free locks, they’re often too heavy for fine hair and can leave it looking limp and greasy. Thick creams, leave-in conditioners and oil-based serums may tame thicker locks, but for finer hair, you’ll need something a bit…lighter. We’ve done the work for you and gathered eight super-light smoothing products that will leave your strands smooth and glossy without the heaviness.
Read on for our favourite products to smooth fine hair!
John Masters Rose & Apricot Hair Milk ($26)
Toss out your traditional leave-in conditioner and swap it for this light hair milk. The formula, made up of four light oils, untangles hair, eliminates frizz, and adds shine. The best part? It also builds volume!
John Frieda Frizz Ease Sheer Solution Lightweight Frizz Control ($10)
This dual formula is half lightweight serum and half smoothing elixir; just shake it up to activate the formula. It visibly smooths frizz and also works to hydrate your hair from the inside. Plus, it’s so easy to use and makes achieving a sleek blowout at home a snap.
Oscar Blondi Jasmine Oil Serum ($35)
This serum fights frizz like a champ, but also provides major shine—we’re talking super-shine status here. The serum is light enough that you never have to worry about accidentally using too much. Bonus: it smells amazing.
Josie Maran 100 Percent Pure Argan Oil Light ($48)
For those of you who really wanted to love the Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil ($48), but found it too heavy for your fine strands, this new lighter formula will be your new favorite hair oil. While technically this oil is sold as skin care, it works wonders as a hair product too.
Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Dry Oil Mist ($25)
If you tend to apply too much product, this dry oil is here to save the day. Simply spritz it on wet hair after jumping out of the shower (the sooner the better) and then style as usual. Your hair will be soft, smooth, and bouncy!
Living Proof No Frizz Conditioner ($24)
Over-washing your hair can dry out your strands and cause extra frizz, but the ingredients in this conditioner that lock in moisture also lock out dirt and oil. It’s best product to help you skip a shampoo (or two) and allow your natural oils to fight frizz.
Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil ($38)
This fragrant hair oil not only smooths and adds shine, but also helps strengthen your hair against breakage at the same time. Apply a dollop of this light oil into damp strands before heat styling for extra sleek strands. The best part? You can reapply throughout the day without weighing down your hair.
Trissola Chia Smoothing Oil (prices vary by salon)
The chia craze has crept from our smoothies to our hair. The same Omega-3’s that are good for your body also have amazing benefits when applied topically. This oil is so light, it’s almost like water—it never weighs your hair down and adds shine without a hint of greasiness.
