Tips To Tame Frizzy Hair
- Don’t brush dry hair. If there’s one tip repeated by just about every expert, it’s this: AVOID BRUSHING HAIR AFTER IT’S DRY. Brushing not only disrupts your hair’s cuticle, it can also stretch hair, leading to breakage. Instead towel dry hair after a shower and brush, comb, or finger-comb it. Next, add a touch of your preferred conditioner or anti-frizz product.
- Comb dry hair with wet fingers. If you shouldn’t brush, what can you do when humidity or a brisk day leaves your hair a frizzy mess? Water is the key. The problem with frizzy hair is that it’s dry. Water is a basic response to this basic problem. Wet your hands, then finger-combing to tackle frizz and tame tangles.
- Tame with a touch of conditioner. To foil your frizz, try watering down a dab of conditioner and then use your hands to apply it to just the tips of your hair.
- Look for protein in your products. A protein-infused conditioner will both manage frizz and create shine.
- Don’t over-process hair. Relaxers and straighteners can make hair brittle and lead to breakage.
- Put moisture back in your mane. Frizzy hair tends to be drier, so you need to put moisture into it. Use a conditioner, a natural oil, or a frizz cream. Natural oils are better than synthetic because they are absorbed into the hair. Synthetic silicon moisturizers, on the other hand, lie on top of the hair, making it appear dirty.
- Stop ‘cooking’ your curls. Avoiding flat irons and curling irons and limiting heat sources to a blow dryer with a diffuser.
- Use a round brush to smooth your hair. Spin a round brush through your hair as you blow dry to help smooth the cuticles flat.
- Dry only the roots of your hair. Try blow drying only your roots to give hair lift and avoid drying the hair shaft and hair tips.
- Go alcohol-free. Alcohol can dry hair out, setting you up for frizz. So look for alcohol-free products. That may mean switching to salon-quality shampoos, conditioners, and hairsprays.
- Fight afternoon frizz by smoothing hair with a small amount of children’s detangling spray.
- Talk to your stylist. If what you’re using works, use it! Whether it’s a pricey product or a great drugstore find. But remember that your stylist probably has a host of hints that’ll help keep you frizz-free from morning to night.
