The 5 Best Hydrating Keratin Shampoos for Frizzy Hair

In order to effectively tame frizzy hair, you must begin by prepping tresses with the appropriate hydrating shampoo. Frizzy hair is caused by a variety of factors. Keratin Complex educator Samantha Stevens shares, “Lack of hydration in the hair itself and too much humidity in the environment can cause frizz, as well as if there’s any thermal styling damage done to the hair that has created a rough cuticle.”

Using a hydrating shampoo that’s formulated to nix frizzy hair–one that is geared toward your specific hair type while delivering high-performing ingredients that strengthen and moisturize–is key to addressing frizz and remedying the issue. “There are four main hair types: straight, wavy, curly and coily,” says Stevens. “Discovering your specific hair type is crucial in finding out how to eliminate frizz. Someone with fine hair needs to use a lower heat setting on their styling iron to avoid damage and the resulting frizz; conversely, someone who has thick, curly, coarse hair may need a higher heat setting to create smoothness in the hair.”

Further, your natural hair type has a propensity to frizz depending on the environment. “Straight hair usually has less frizz and can withstand humidity,” notes Keratin Complex educator Lasondra Pontarelli. “Wavy, curly or coily hair in its natural state will usually thrive in humidity. Unfortunately, when you choose to take wavy, curly or coily hair out of its natural state (i.e straightening with a blowdryer and/or a styling iron) and enter a humid environment, the hair will start to absorb the moisture in the air. If the cuticle is not intact, it will cause hair to revert back to its natural state, but with more frizz. Thankfully, Keratin Complex is a leader [in the anti-frizz hair category] that has products that cater to every hair type.”

Keratin Complex utilizes patented Signature Keratin, a unique and ultra-potent hydrolyzed keratin formula that bonds to hair’s existing natural keratin as well as replenishes the lost keratin that has been depleted over time. All Keratin Complex shampoos are formulated without sodium chloride to protect the longevity of salon professional Keratin Complex hair-smoothing treatments and hair color services. “Keratin Complex Signature Keratin is bio-identical to the natural keratin that exists in everyone’s own hair,” Stevens explains. Adds fellow Keratin Complex educator Nicolle Talley, “This Signature Keratin protects hair from the inside out and creates a protective barrier around the hair shaft.” Translation: Unlike other keratin shampoos for frizzy hair on the market, Keratin Complex Signature Keratin-infused shampoos truly work to deliver the best hair-smoothing results by mimicking hair’s naturally occurring keratin protein for healthy-looking hair that you can see and feel. Here’s a breakdown of Keratin Complex’s five hydrating shampoos for frizzy hair–discover which is the best shampoo for you!

5 Best for Blonde Hair

Keratin Complex Blondeshell Debrass Shampoo ($30.00/13.5 fl. oz.) and Keratin Complex Blondeshell Debrass Conditioner ($30.00/13.5 fl. oz.) are imbued with a lavender-purple pigmented formula that eliminates brassy tones for brighter, more vibrant hair color, along with a fade-fighting complex that enhances blonde, gray, silver and white hair tones.

Verified buyer Marjorie says, “This shampoo is incredible! It keeps my blonde hair silky and shiny! It seems to make my highlights brighter and they definitely last longer!”

Once you choose the Keratin Complex hydrating shampoo that’s best for you, you’ll be on your way to healthy, frizz-free hair in no time. Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t take further preventive frizz-fighting measures. Stevens advises, “Keep the airflow on low [while blow-drying]. If you use a high airflow on your blowdryer, you are more likely to rough up your cuticle and create a frizzy mess.”

Pontarelli reveals additional methods to help combat frizz, while emphasizing that frizzy hair and unhealthy hair don’t always go hand in hand. “Frizzy hair doesn’t always mean unhealthy hair. You can have frizz and healthy hair at the same time,” depending on hair type and texture,” informs Pontarelli. “Satin pillowcases are a big help with reducing frizz because they reduce friction between the hair and pillowcases while you sleep.” And while you should give your hair the occasional break from thermal styling, be sure to consistently use a nourishing and protecting styling when you do use a blowdyer or flat iron, like the Keratin Complex Infusion Keratin Replenisher ($44.00/4.0 fl. oz.). 

“Environmental damage is inevitable as well,” continues Pontarelli, “but if you are going to be exposed to direct sun rays for prolonged amounts of time, wear a wide-brimmed hat that protects your hair. If you are going to the beach or pool, bring a leave-in conditioner (like Keratin Complex Keratin Obsessed Multi-Benefit Treatment Spray ($28.00/5.0 fl. oz.), Keratin Complex KCSMOOTH Restorative Leave-in Lotion ($30.00/5.0 fl. oz.) or Keratin Complex KCTEXTURE Leave-in Conditioner ($30.00/5.0 fl. oz.) and apply it before and after going in the water.”

There are also demipermanent solutions available to help aid your battle against frizzy hair. “Keratin Complex Keratin Smoothing Treatments come in a wide range of formulas and are fully customizable according to your hair type and smoothing goals,” says Talley. These hair-smoothing treatments can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, depending on your desired outcome.

Keratin Complex shampoos–all packed with the brand’s Signature Keratin–work to ensure your healthiest, smoothest hair and bestow beautiful hair days that are free of frizz. “I like to view the hair strand as a road, and all of the damage that exists within it are the potholes,” relates Stevens. “Keratin Complex uses Signature Keratin to go in and fill those potholes, creating smooth, healthy hair.”
