When it comes to flattening the frizz in your summer hairdo, products matter, but price doesn't, according to Good Housekeeping magazine.
Good Housekeeping magazine's editor-in-chief, Ellen Levine, says people should think of such products as a sort of raincoat for the hair.
Good Housekeeping tested the four leading national brands of anti-frizz products to find out which one worked the best. The chemists used real hair swatches, according to Levine, coating them with the products before sending them to the Good Housekeeping Institute "climatology laboratory."
Four different women also volunteered to enter the climatology lab, where the humidity was set at 80%.
When the women were released from the humidity, researchers checked the size of their hair and how much it had expanded. Here's how the leading brands tested, according to Good Housekeeping.
1. Pantene Frizz Control Smooth Creme, $6.99
2. Redken Outshine Anti-Frizz Polishing Milk, $14.95
3. John Freida Frizz Ease Hair Serum, $9.99
4. Aussie Smoothy Glass, $4.29
