Our best product for frizzy hair

Smooth hair is hair that is hydrated and healthy. Treat your tresses at least once a week to a hydrating conditioner to inject some moisture into your strands.
With one sold every minute in the US**, our new Dream Lengths Wonder Water is a lightweight, water-based treatment that penetrates the hair’s cuticle, detangles hair and targets the damage on each strand, more so than traditional heavy creams and masks. Powered by breakthrough Lamellar Water technology, the treatment temporarily ‘fills’ the holes where your hair is damaged to help reinforce your strands. This means your hair is silkier, shinier and healthier-looking with an unbelievably weightless feel.

To use, simply apply after shampooing;  use it as a substitute conditioner or in addition to your conditioner if you need an extra boost. Simply add 1 dose for fine to medium-textured hair and 2-3 doses for thicker or curly textured hair. If your hair is extra-long, just add 1 extra dose so you can get decent coverage of the product.

Use a T-shirt to dry your hair

A tip that often gets overlooked is drying your hair with a cotton T-shirt instead of a towel. The rough fibres of towels can disrupt and lift the hair’s cuticle, leading to tired, frizzy and dry hair. A soft cotton T-shirt will soak up excess water from your hair while treating it with kindness, whether it’s curly, straight or anything in between. This technique is ideal to use after rinsing out our Wonder Water treatment.

Finish blow drying with a cool blast

If you don’t want to swap the hairdryer for a towel, this tip is for you! Once you’ve finished blow drying your hair, blast it with cool air for a few seconds. The cool air will help to close your hair’s cuticles so that they lie flat and reflect light better. Also remember to direct the blow dryer downwards (from scalp to ends) as this will also encourage the cuticles to close. The result? Shinier, smoother hair! Pair this technique with our Wonder Water treatment and you’ll get a glassy shine and silky touch.***

Comb when your hair is wet, brush when it’s dry

To help keep your hair protected and smooth, comb your hair when it’s wet and fresh out of the shower and don’t start brushing your hair until it’s fully dry. Hair is most fragile when it’s wet, so a wide-tooth comb will limit the damage and help prevent your hair from becoming weak or brittle.

Sleep on a silk pillowcase

Sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase is beneficial for achieving smoother hair. Cotton pillowcases can suck moisture from your hair, risking dry or tangled tresses. The less friction you’re causing between your pillowcase and hair is always going to help keep your strands looking healthy.

Frizz prevention tips

Pre-shampoo treatment: Apply a helping of oil before you wash your hair as a pre-shampoo treatment, ensuring to cover hair from root to tip. Leave it on for 15 minutes before shampooing to achieve soft, smooth hair.

To boost your hair washing regime we would recommend our Elvive Dream Lengths Shampoo and Conditioner products, as these work best with our Wonder Water treatment to provide nourished, weightless hair.

Frizz prevention products: Tame frizz and flyaways by adding a few drops of oil to the ends of your hair, such as Elvive Extraordinary Hair Oil, which is formulated with coconut oil for a luxurious shine. You don’t need a lot so be careful not to go overboard! Our Dream Lengths Frizz Killer Serum also works great to help tame the unwanted frizz.
