Products For Long Haired Dudes

I haven't had a haircut in close to three years, and my hair is around 14" long all the way around. I like it most of the time, but it's definitely prone to frizzing out in the hotter, humid months. I shampoo and condition once a week, and I don't use product at all.

I'm wondering if there is something very light though that I can use to tame the frizz. I have to stress the importance of "light," because I don't want a heavy, greasy product sitting in my hair for an entire week between shampooing.

Any input is appreciated!
 
I got chu.

You want an oil mist or spray. Sometimes you’ll see it called a ‘dry oil’ mist or spray.

The vitamin B version from Organix OGX is fantastic, but there are a hundred other ones out there. Just google or check your local stores or salons or wherever you like to go.
 
Do you rinse your hair in the shower on days you are not shampooing? A lot of leave in conditioners rinse out. Anti frizz mists would be the lightest. Maybe Redkin Frizz Dismiss.
 
Thanks guys. I was not familiar with oil mists/sprays. I'll look into those.

I do not rinse in between washings. And my hair continues to improve in feel and appearance all the way up until the end of the week when I wash again. I've tried to push it farther than a week but it does eventually start to get noticeably oily.
 
Your hair will split on the ends naturally over time. Getting a haircut gets rid of that for most people. You could trim a small amount, say 1/16" to 1/8" evenly over your entire head with hair shears. Other than that, try a rinse of vinegar and water a few times a week during your shower. Try 2 tablespoons vinegar per cup of water to start, adjust more or less.

Also, be sure to brush your hair out every day. Use a natural boar bristle hairbrush.

The oil mists are game changers for getting those flyaways to cooperate and making your hair look less ‘boofy’. And trust me (if you get a good one like OGX) they are really light! Really won’t weigh your hair down and make it greasy and manky.
