"This stuff is MAGIC": 8 women on the hair products and hacks that tame humidity frizz.

La Niña is really messing with our hot girl summer. 

If you didn't see the news, New South Wales and Queensland are experiencing unpredictable weather conditions for this time of year - torrential rain and higher humidity levels - and on a really superficial level, it's making our hair a little unmanageable.

Whether you're dealing with that right now, or know that your hair will become frizzy as it gets warmer, we asked eight women to share the products and hacks that actually tame hair when it's humid and sh*t gets unruly.

Here's what they shared.

Erin.

"I am *actually* Hagrid and have tried so many things over the years to tame my frizzy hair. One of the best finds I've made is using the Oribe Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray prior to blow-drying. I spray it on my hair when it's damp and work section by section when drying - and I find everything ends up smoother and straighter.

"Another product I love using before straightening my hair is Ghd Straight On Straight and Smooth Spray. It's honestly the best heat protection spray for defrizzing!

"If things still get out of hand, I keep a little bottle of hair oil in my bag to smooth things down! A couple of my faves are ELEVEN Australia Smooth & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum and Ouai Haircare Hair Oil - but there are so many goodies on the market!"

"When I wash my hair, I turn [the tap] on cold just before I get out of the shower and make sure all my hair is COLD before hopping out. I swear by this. I also dry it straight away rather than air drying. I find this helps too."

Charlie.

"The minute it becomes humid, my naturally curly hair turns super frizzy. Thankfully, I've found some products that really work. 

"For when I want my hair to be out and styled, I always finish with the John Frieda Frizz Ease range. I used to swear by their Finishing Creme (still love it), but after Holly Wainwright suggested the serum on Mamamia Out Loud, I bought that and haven't looked back. I apply a big, fat pump if it of through my ends after styling and all the frizz smooths out. 

"Alternatively, on days I CBF straightening it, I use the same product through my whole hair, slick it back into a claw clip and brush the Slick Stick through my flyaways. It holds all day."

"Keratin treatments! Unfortunately, they are expensive but very effective. Failing that, spraying hairspray on a new toothbrush and smooth your hair down as much as possible."

Denise.

"I'm a big fan of this [product]."
