Taming frizzy hair is one of the top issues customers of beauty salons mention at their first and subsequent visits. While many other problems have been successfully solved, crimped hair can still ruin a perfect hairstyle and, often, a perfect event. To stop frizzy hair, you may want to try multiple solutions – a shampoo that worked wonders in summer may not be as efficient in winter. Hydrate your hair as much as you like with the perfect products, they will be powerless against daily blow-drys and an exhausting exercise regime that fills your scalp with sweat salts.
Still, if you get acquainted with the quality of your frizzy hair as it changes during the seasons and apply suitable products under different circumstances, frizzy hair won’t be as much of an issue. What can you do to keep your hairstyle in place and stop frizzy hair?
Washing Frizzy Hair
Easier said than done, but washing your hair less often will definitely help with blocking the frizz from becoming the mandatory companion of your hairstyle. Daily washes will pull out all natural oils from the scalp and the fibres and cause the unwanted wrinkles that result in that fuzzy lion’s mane. Your hair doesn’t need that many shampoos – twice a week will usually do it for most textures.
Sulphate free shampoo are the best way to tame frizz. That abundance of lather that shows up during washing is not always a good sign – it indicates too many sulphates!
One solution to prevent frequent washes is replacing your regular shampoo with dry shampoo. That will take care of the greasy roots but still keep the moisture at the tips. Another way to show mercy to your hair is by conditioning it without actually using a shampoo beforehand. Sometimes, you may need to try a mask or a taming cream, and, on other occasions, when the weather is less humid, only an anti-frizz serum may do the trick.
How to Dry Your Hair to Prevent Frizz
Blow dry techniques for frizzy hair may vary depending on your natural hair texture and the final effect of the hairstyle you want to achieve. Before you take the hairdryer, use a gentle towel or a cotton t-shirt to remove excess moisture. The hair should be almost 90 per cent dry before you start styling your hair with a dryer, a diffuser, or a straightener.
Remember the more gentle you are with your hair during caretaking , the less frizz you will have to deal with. Therefore wash gentlly, towel dry gently and use low heat settings. True - It will take more time, but it will leave you with that silky feeling and stop frizzy hair from messing up a sleek pony tail, a neat bun and cascades of long voluminous curls.
