The best ways to fight frizzy hair
Frizzy hair is a common struggle that many of us face. Whether it’s the humidity or heat damage, or even for seemingly no reason at all, we’ve all experienced a moment where our hair went wild on us. But not to worry we have 5 simple easy tips that you can follow to tame that mane.
1. Choose a sulfate-free, glycerin-packed shampoo.
When selecting a shampoo, look for products with glycerin listed high up on the ingredient list. The closer glycerin is listed to the top, the more concentrated it is in the product. Glycerin helps combat frizz by penetrating the hair and hydrating it from the inside out.
2. Always use conditioner.
The power of a good conditioner is often underestimated. Ensure you use conditioner every time you shampoo your hair to keep the cuticle hydrated so moisture can penetrate deep into each strand. This helps prevent the cuticle from opening up and letting excess moisture from the environment in, which will keep it smooth. Be sure to apply conditioner from the mid-lengths down to your ends and keep it away from your roots to prevent greasiness.
3. Use a hydrating mask once a week.
Keeping the hair hydrated helps to prevent the hair cuticle from opening up and letting in moisture, which is the biggest contributor to frizzy hair. Try doing a hair mask or a specialised hair treatment once a week to keep hair moisturised and less prone to damage from styling. If your hair is especially dry and damaged, we recommend using a hair mask 2-3 times a week or in place of your conditioner.
4. Let your hair air dry 90% of the way before blow-drying.
Letting your hair air dry 90% before blow-drying is a stylist's secret weapon and it is truly life changing! By letting your hair partially air dry, you are allowing it to dry without disrupting the hair strand, which helps to keep it smooth. While the heat of a blow dryer can cause damage, using a blow dryer when your hair is already mostly dry minimizes the risk.
5.Use a nourishing hair oil on dry ends.
If you still can’t seem to kick the frizz once your hair is blow-dried, try using a nourishing hair oil. We suggest our SmoothME. Hair oil works to fight frizz by smoothing out the hair while simultaneously adding gloss and shine. It penetrates deep into the hair cuticle to add moisture to dry ends and revitalize the health and vibrancy of your tresses. Drop 1-3 drops of oil onto your palm, rub together and smooth over the ends of the hair to tame flyaways and frizz.
