While there’s much to love about the warm weather, we hate how the humidity inflates our frizz-prone strands to epic proportions. Luckily, we have a secret weapon this summer (and no, it’s not a hat): Ricky’s new No-Frizz hairbrushes, which have turned the bad-hair-day theory on its head.
Smoothing olive oil is baked directly into the bristles, then deposited into strands every time you brush your hair. The result: silky locks without the greasy residue. Best of all, you don’t need to pile on extra products (which typically weigh hair down) to keep your mane under control–just run the brush through wet or dry locks for touch-ups.
The No-Frizz brushes, which retain their oil-diffusing properties for roughly a year, come in two versions that we put to the test on a steamy weekend. The flat paddle ($15) delivered a super-straight blowout, while the rounded barrel ($15) gave us glossy waves. A styling tip for both looks: Blow-dry hair in small sections to ensure you don’t miss any spots and finish with a blast of cool air to seal the cuticle (hairdresser speak for nixing frizz). Also super useful are the No-Frizz combs ($6-$8), which work wonders on air-dried strands.
Post-blowout, our hair stayed silky and pristine during the humid weather, survived a sweat-inducing bike ride and still looked great during an al fresco dinner.
