Does your hair frizz and kink at the slightest sign of moisture or humidity? A wet winter doesn’t have to mean having to wear your fedora every day when you can fight frizz and have smoother hair. The reason that hair frizzes is because it lacks moisture and natural oils. To counteract this, it is important to use the right products and to look after your hair. Avoiding products that contain alcohol, such as hairspray is a good place to start.
It is advisable to leave a couple of days between washing your hair because doing so too often (i.e. everyday) will strip your hair of natural oils. Using a moisturising shampoo will clean your hair but not strip your natural oils and giving your hair a deep conditioning mask once a week will restore andrejuvenate. The way you dry your hair will also impact on frizz. Try not to twist or rub hair with a towel; instead, squeeze out excess water and let it dry naturally without touching it with your hands until dry.
A heat protectant product should be applied to hair before exposing it to heat from a blow dryer or straighter. Investing in an ionic blow dryer will help to compress hair cuticles and fight frizz. Try to blow dry hair downwards with a boar bristle brush to help keep natural oils within the hair.
You can also fight frizz when hair is dry with frizz control serums and flyaway tamers . Keeping a large toothbrush in your beauty bag is handy for brushing down flyaways on your lunch break and keeping your hair frizz free.
