Flyaway Hairs Driving You Mad? Tame Your Locks With These Tips, Tools, and Tricks

Kiana Murden & Kylee McGuigan,

There’s something about having smooth, sleek hair that’s just so satisfying, so why leave it to a lone flyaway hair to throw off the vibe? Whether you’re creating a snatched, slicked-back bun or giving yourself a bouncy blowout, chances are you’ve encountered flyaway hairs at some point—a seemingly small but hardly trivial source of frustration when trying to perfect a look.

Flyaways, which cofounder of IGK Hair Care Aaron Grenia describes as “hairs that are shorter than the rest of the hair and don’t lay uniformly” are common across all hair types; they’re most often a result of damaged, overly-washed hair, as well as a lack of product pre-styling that causes damage when hot tools come into play, says Glenn Ellis, a celebrity hair stylist based in Los Angeles.

Difficult as pesky flyaways may be to keep in check, it’s not impossible. Whether it’s a frizz-fighting shampoo, a conditioning hair mask, or a combination of both, it is possible to smooth rogue hairs and get the look you desire. Below, experts reveal the essential tips and tricks for a soft and silky hair journey.
