What are the best hairstyles for frizzy hair down to my elbow?

When I tie my hair up in a pony, I look terrible.

Side braid or high ponytail
Treseme and garnier products work great if u get the strongest one possible to keep it neat and elegant looking.

Try some braid hairstyles. Braids will help keep your frizzy hair in check. I also suggest investing in some anti-frizz, and relaxing serum hair products.

One of my teachers said braids make frizzes worse...? She experienced it

I don't think so.... If you wear braids to bed it might, but not through out the day. And hair product is one of the most important things I do for my hair.

Curl your hair, and add de-frizzing mouse. Perfect for long hair.

I agree, this is worth a shot! Use BIG rollers, buy at Target or dollar store. Spray will work instead of mousse, too.

Do you need to continue to have that long of hair?

when I have it shortened, it looks worse. The frizz doesn't go away it only becomes even more uncontrollable.

Get your hair thinned and then try rolling it up in light weight rollers to dry like in the 60s. This is how to get relaxed looking loose curls that say that way alla day. Remember in the rain, to avoid frizzing, to cover your hair, wear a jacket with a hood for instance.

if its unhealthy hair you should get a haircut and start over. if its "your hair" there are lots of smoothing products and tools to straighten, smooth and shine it if u want to wear it down. braids, twists, buns and up dos are endless for that length if you like working with it. keep it healthy. I got mine cut into layers from that length and I'm loving it. its so much easier

Some people say layers are best for straight hair that's why i never tried that. You suggest layers?

I use to take sections. as thick as my finger put mousse on it then twirl. I had a head of long twirls for 2 yrs it started staying that way by itself after awhile. didn't look so frizzy.

If you will buy a flat iron, you won't have frizzy hair. Take a small section of hair and iron it from top to bottom. It takes all the frizz out. When you can afford it, buy a professional model. I have a professional Chi and it leaves my hair silky and straight. I think you will really like it.

I have one. But my hair is just so frizzy it's impossible to straighten it at home. Besides people say flat iron damages the hair. Do you know any products to treat the hair after straightening it? And any products that make straightening easier?

Hair salons carry products to spray on your hair while it is wet to keep the damage to a minimum. Talk to your hair dresser.

Braids are good if you don't want to use heat. I recommend using a few drops of pro naturals argan oil with your braid to smooth down the frizz and moisturize.

well maybe a pony tail or braids are good. but you can also use argan oil, I use the one from pro naturals too and it reduces the frizz and the hair looks better. :)
