9 Frizz-Beating Winter Hair Tips & Chic Holiday Hairstyles

This is a sponsored post by José Eber. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Winter is here and while the Holidays are something I look forward to every year, the cold temps and number it does on my hair are certainly not! I’m always on the search for winter hair tips to beat the frizz and I can’t wait to share them with you!

My hair is already very much on the dry side and double that up with the dry Utah climate I live in, and my heater coming on every 10 minutes, and I’ve got a major recipe for disaster!

To combat the frizzy dry winter hair, I’ve tried out a number of things over the years, including different tips and different products and feel like I’ve finally come up with the perfect recipe of solutions to finally keep the frizz and overprocessed winter hair away for good!

9 Winter Hair Tips to Beat the Frizz

1. Wash with sulfate-free, frizz-reducing shampoo and use a deep conditioner weekly! Glycerin hydrates the hair from the inside out and so does a deep conditioner. Both also provide a protective coating over the hair, keeping moisture out, and frizz down.  Tip: Rinse with cold water to lock in moisture and seal cuticles once you’ve finished washing (I find doing this over a sink once out of the shower, a bit easier to do when temps are cold outside).

2. Wash your hair less and use dry shampoo instead.  The less often you wash, the less frizzy and dry your hair will be as your natural hair oil will help moisturize and hydrate the hair. I know many of us tend to worry about going several days with greasy, oily hair, but thanks to dry shampoo, you don’t have to. Just apply to the roots and crown of the head, and rub in with fingers and it will instantly soak up that excess oil, leaving hair looking and smelling clean and fresh like you just washed it! Bonus: Dry Shampoo is better for styling as it still has that natural somewhat-dirty texture that works best with updos.

3. Wear a deep-conditioning hair mask overnight. My stylist taught me this a few years back, and boy am I glad she did! This single tip has reduced the frizz so much for me! I just wash my hair, then put in a deep conditioning hair mask, braid my hair and sleep on it. When I wake up and rinse it out, my hair is instantly softer, smoother, and much more hydrated too! My hair ends up being a lot less dry and frizzy throughout the week too!

4. Speaking of sleep, start sleeping on a silk pillowcase or wrap dry hair in a silk scarf at night to help reduce frizz. Cotton pillowcases, unfortunately, add to the frizz with all that rubbing while sleeping at night. Sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase or tie up your hair in a silk scarf while sleeping. Be conscious of what you’re wearing this winter too as many coats, sweaters, and scarf fabrics will add to frizz when rubbing against hair. Try to find and wear warm fabrics with a smooth texture.

5. Be sure to use a thermal protectant spray before blowdrying and/or styling hair, especially if you’re using heated styling tools! Again like Glycerin in shampoos, the ingredients in heat protectant sprays help seal the cuticle and keep moisture in. Tip: When using heat styling products, turn the temp down to around 365 degrees for normal hair, as high temps will damage and dry out hair.

6. Use a direct air blow dryer.  This type of blow dryer, like the direct air blow dryer from José Eber – works great for moisturizing the cuticle and reducing frizz. The José Eber direct air blow dryer uses a powerful 1100 watt hybrid airflow to give you a much quicker dry time with powerful heating that won’t do damage to your hair. The 3 heats with 2 speeds and cool shot help eliminate frizz while creating volume and curls. Tip: Let your hair air dry about 90% of the way first, otherwise that blowdryer on super wet hair will work against you and dry out hair instead of keeping the natural moisture in. Also, be sure to Blast with cool air from your dryer to also help lock in moisture and seal cuticles.

7. Use heated styling tools with ultra-low friction to give hair maximum smooth, healthy, Brazillian straight style without inducing frizz. I love the José Eber vibrating flat iron (the vibration helps reduce friction automatically when applied to the hair) and the José Eber steam-inducing infrared wet/dry iron with digital control, which penetrates hair deeply to deliver maximum shine while cutting down on the frizz, and you can use it on either wet or dry hair! Tip: Make sure hair is mostly dry (about 90%) before using the Infrared wet/dry iron

Jose’s celebrity hair secrets are now being revealed in a truly ground-breaking hair styling tool, which you can find right here in these amazing flat irons and direct air blowdryer!

8. Use coconut oil on your hair daily. I use it in place of a styling cream after styling my hair for the day. It locks in moisture, keeping the frizz out, and gives my hair a super soft, smooth, shiny texture; not to mention the lovely tropical coconut scent makes me feel like its summer again! Just use a tiny little dab will do! I smooth it throughout my hair, paying special attention to my extra-dry ends. If you are obsessed with a particular styling cream you already use, you can mix coconut oil in with it to provide the coconut oil benefits while still getting maximum hold!

9. Use a styling cream, gel, or pomade instead of hairspray. The alcohol from hair spray is drying and will further induce frizz in the hair. Stick to products that do not contain alcohol and other drying ingredients, and will instead provide added hydration to hair.

Hopefully, armed with these 9 winter hair frizz-beating tips, there will be no more bad hair days in site this Holiday season!

Speaking of the Holidays – let’s not forget some fun holiday hairstyles! Here are two of my favorites, both very simple to do and both are incredibly festive and unique too!

Look #1 is super simple and you can do it in mere seconds.

Simply braid your hair (however you’d like to braid) and braid in a festive ribbon. Just bobby pin the ribbon in at the top to stay in place and braid (you can also remove the bobby pin once the braid is in place). Cut the ribbon to fit the length of your hair. You can show as much of it as you like or as little for just a glimpse of some Holiday cheer!

Look #2 is a super cute half-up bow!

Pull the end of the half ponytail up to the top and tie it off and gently pull the loop apart into two equal sections.

Pin it and any stay hairs into place. Then pull on the loops to make the bow bigger and fuller and finish by pinning into place.

  1. To keep the frizzies away I try and use a hair mask at least once a week a deep conditioner and something with a light oil base for the flyaways !

  2. Kayte CookWatts

    You are preaching to the choir with that coconut oil tip. haha My family teases me because I use it for everything! It does work great on the ends- and as a hair mask.

  3. I may try the coconut oil… that sounds interesting! Usually I use leave-in conditioner and curl gel, and scrunch it/plop it… I wake up with curls, but they turn to frizz…

  4. Natasha Romero Salas

    The half up bow is so adorable! I love that. I definitely agree that you should use more dry shampoo than washing your hair everyday, especially if you are styling it. It helps your hair hold a curl much easier.

  5. I appreciate any tips to eliminate frizz during the colder, drier weather. Definitely need to deep condition and use a nice blowdryer, will try some other tips listed too!

  6. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  7. margaretawaltman

    Great site. A lot of useful info here. I’m sending it to a few pals ans additionally sharing in delicious. And naturally, thanks for your sweat!

  8. These are great tips! I did my very first keratin treatment on my hair a few months ago and my hair has never been smoother. It was great. Unfortunately, I went on vacation and the salt-water from the ocean ruined the treatment. I’m definitely going to do it again next summer to try to tame the frizz.

  9. Wonderful information to keep my hair looking great! Can’t wait to try your tips my hair is not easy to get looking great especially as i get older.

  10. Thank you for sharing! My thick frizzy hair needs all the help it can get! It’s been long most of my life and I recently had it cut into a swing bob! SO much easier to care for but I still have trouble with frizz…..

  11. Shannon D Citrino

    I always use It’s A 10 blonde leave in to avoid frizz….its a little expensive, but completely worth it! Great tips, and thanks for the code!!

  12. Shannon D Citrino

    I always use It’s A 10 blonde leave in to avoid frizz….its a little expensive, but completely worth it! Great tips, and thanks for the code!! Good luck everyone! I’ve got my fingers crossed 🤞

  14. Jeanine Carlson

    I fight frizz all the time! I have fine hair and I can’t wash my hair more than 1 to 2 times a week. I’ve tried using coconut oil, a scant drop rubbed between my hands, then spread onto my hair. I look like my hair hasn’t been washed. Any tips?

  15. Jeanine Bevacqua

    I can’t seem to find anything to work with my fine hair that wants to frizz whenever I go outside. I can only wash it once or twice a week, but if I use a tiny drop of coconut oil rubbed between my fingers, I end up looking greasy and like I really need a good wash. Suggestions?

  16. I deal with alot of frizzy dos especially in the winter too. I like using coconut oil and I’ve only tried a couple of hair masks. Definitely going to follow all of your tips and love the hair bow hairstyle.

  17. I need to try a deep conditioning mask. My scalp and hair is so dry but I have psoriasis on my scalp and my derm recommends I wash daily. These are some great tips, thank you so much!

  18. I went sulfate free 5 years ago and my hair is like night and day. It used to be all frizzy and now it is straight and silky

  19. My daughter is an islander and has the cutest curly hair, but it gets frizzy fast when you try to brush it. I will definitely be trying out that coconut hair conditioner!

  20. kathy mcclanahan

    Thanks for all the styling tips! I love the use of coconut oil! Going to try your routine and see if it helps my dry winter hair!

  21. Theresa Jenkins

    WEN Replenishing Treatment Mist, WEN Styling Cremes , WEN Cleansing Conditioner (My fav Fig or Lavender) >>these 3 is all I use all year

  22. Brittany Raisor

    Thanks for the tips! I’m fighting the winter dryness and frizz as we speak! I also love that little hair now hairstyle, how easy and adorable.

  23. I never really thought to use Coconut Oil in my hair. I don’t really think it would tame my hair and frizz control, do I use a lot or just a little bit and do you use on your strands or just massage it through your entire scalp/hair?

  24. It’s good to know that there are places onlineike this one, where I can learn about beauty and health. Thank you kindly.

  25. Frizz is the absolute worst! My hair seems to have a mind of its own. One day it’s flat as can be and the next frizz ha taken over!

  26. Love your half-up bow hair style. I haven’t tried coconut oil yet. I switched to silk pillowcases a while ago and will never go back to frizz making cotton ones.

  27. Coconut oil has saved my hair so many times, especially when it magically rats nests overnight or during the day (usually a sure sign I need a hair cut again) Great tips

  28. Michelle Damon

    I had given up & was going to dish out the $ for a keratin treatment, but I’m going to try some of these first to see if I can save $! Thank you for posting!

  29. (9 Frizz-Beating Winter Hair Tips & Chic Holiday Hairstyles) These are all some great ideas to use for my hair. It has been so frizzy lately with static electricity.

  30. I went sulfate free 5 years ago and it has made a remarkable difference in my hair-much less frizz. I also get Keratin treatments once a year

  31. Know from personal experience that the frizz gets worse as we age and it needs evern more work. Thanks for the tips

  32. Hair frizz is an issue when I wash and go style my hair can be perfect but then I need to spray down the frizz. I keep forgetting about the deep conditioning hair masks. Thanks for the reminder and great advice for fighting hair frizz.

  33. I’ve read that the best way to protect your hair (minimize damage, and so on) when sleeping is to keep it up in a high, loose bun. I’ve been doing this for quite a while now, and have found it to be a success.

  34. I’ve never considered using dry shampoo. After reading this, I’m going to try it. This frizz I have needs help!

  35. I love the braid style, but I have really short hair. I like that I don’t do much with it because it’s flat and it falls no matter what product I use! Thank you for the great info though! God bless and please stay healthy everyone!

  36. Jennifer Hiles

    My hair is soo dry and frizzy (summer and winter!). I wish I didn’t have to wash it every day but I have oily hair/skin. 🙁 I had no idea that I should rinse with cold water. I will try that. I also need a new pillowcase. Very helpful tips, you have obviously done your research.

  37. Using coconut oil on your hair daily is one tip I had not heard about before. I am just wondering if it makes your hair oily? Many tips that I plan to try from your list. Thank you for sharing.

  38. I love the style of the flat iron, so nice. I tend to have more frizzy hair during the summer than I do during the winter.

  39. athena graeme

    I’ve never tried the dry shampoo before. In high school someone convinced me to use baby powder once and it was a nightmare! LOL! Since then I’ve shied away, but I travel so much and it’s hard to get a shower in between airports, I think I might have to give it a try.

  40. My hair gets so dry from my flat iron and the sun and salt water. I really need to try some of these tips.

  41. My hair has been so dry throughout the winter. I am so wishing I had gone and gotten a trim before everything went on LOCKDOWN..geesh

  42. (I have long, straight, fine hair.) I don’t do much to my hair, really– kind of a “less is more” philosophy. After showering / washing my hair, I gently wring out my hair and put it up in a clean towel for maybe 5-8 (?) minutes. Then, I put my hair up on top of my head using a claw-clip that’s not too tight. After my hair starts to dry some, I spray on a ( *looking for products…* ) … lately I’ve been using a “5 in 1 treatment mist” that I found at Target. Then I gently comb out my hair using a wide-tooth comb, and put my hair back up in the clip. Done! …My hair has fared really well throughout this really dry winter. Basically, I’ve just been kind and gentle to it.

  43. A lot of the seasonal hair issues that people deal with I deal with year round. Smoothing products and a silk pillowcase are so important for black hair.

  44. I love all the tips and comments! I have super dry & frizzy hair, and have tried several things, but the best thing I have ever used had a mix of coconut, jojoba, morroccan, argan, avocado, sunflower, olive & grapeseed oil and it was a oil pack that was in a coloring pack I used to color my hair. My hair looked so good my husband gave me 100.00 because he thought I went to the salon. It was a good day! other than that, I just want everyone to take care & stay safe!

  45. Allie Futterer

    These are great tips! I have crazy hair and the frizz factor certainly comes in during the summer humidity!

  46. Serums and mousses applied daily helps keep the frizzies down. Using a hair masque once a week helps along with a good conditioner. My hair looks best on the second day or later, because the natural oils make my hair shinier.

  47. My hair is suddenly thinning some. It’s not that bad. My hair becomes Frizzy only if I let my hair air dry after shampooing. I never allow my hair to air dry because I hate frizzy hair. Thus, after washing my hair I immediately blow dry it. When I blow dry my hair there is No Frizz. I currently use John Frieda’s “FRIZZ EASE.” I was aware of the tips and follow a few. The Bow Hair Style is super awesome. It simply is pretty & very cute.

  48. Ashley Chassereau Parks

    Thank you for the tips! I haven’t tried coconut oil in my hair before, but I use it for many other things. I need to try it! I need to use dry shampoo more often too.

  49. I am 65. At age 60 my hair was becoming so frizzy due to most of it being gray even though I dye it. I found the only way to get rid of frizz was an iron like this. Hard to find one that works as well as I’d like. Would like to try this one

  50. so, I am a boy mom. I have three boys, and I have never been good with hair.
    But, I finally got my girl! and have no idea how to do her hair. I love ethese and maybe by the time shes older i can master one! lol

  51. Using a silk pillow case made the world of difference. Not only for frizz but losing hair everywhere. Dry shampoo has become my friend too😁

    1. Absolutely but It will require another person! My boyfriend and I gave each other haircuts last weekend! If you have got someone who can help you, then absolutely, it can be done!

  52. Thank you for all the tips, and thank you for this awesome opportunity as well! My hair will thank you too! Have a great week and take care and be safe everyone!

  53. Tracy Robertson

    Great tips. My hair gets a little frizzy. I actually do wash it more than I need to. I did not know that that causes frizz, it makes sense!

  54. Susan Marina Brown Lane

    I hadn’t thought about using coconut oil….. I have been trying dry shampoo some, though. Thanks for the tips!

  55. Dorothy Boucher

    These products sound amazing and I love your ideas in helping with the frizz side of hair day LOL, I know for me ‘ its always a battle.
    @tisonlyme143

  56. Wow! These are really great tips! I have very frizzy hair so I will definitely be using these tips to help my hair! I love José Eber hair tools and products!

  57. Dorothy Boucher

    I love your ideas here, I often just use some organic coconut oil, not much but I have found it helps a bit.
    @tisonlyme143

  58. I keep my hair very short for swimming 3 times a week. Sigh. Haven’t been swimming for 3 months now.

  59. Frizz is a big problem with my hair, especially since I like to air dry. I love all the tips, thank you!

  60. Kristin walker

    Thanks for the tips, your amazing! My hair gets soooo dry in the winter as well so I’m gonna try this and see how it does

  61. Laurie Nykaza

    Wonderful tips and i need them now since we have been in since early March and my hair needs all the help it can get thanks.

  62. I have feel in love with dry shampoo. It even gives me some volume when I have clean hair since my hair is fine. Works great!
