Perhaps you have frizzy hair in the colder seasons, when everything becomes drier & coarser. Or you’re like me, you have frizzy hair all year round. I have tried several things If you do get frizzy hair sometimes (or all the time) try some of these tips that have worked for me!
-Don’t ever skip on conditioner. The last thing you want is to strip your hair of moisture every time you wash it. You could go with a frizz easing conditioner, & apply to your hair starting mid shaft (not the crown) down to the roots, or try:
-Condition with a hair oil. Hair oils are notorious for calming frizz. And the great thing about them is that you don’t have to rinse it out! After shampooing & rinsing, apply as you would a leave in conditioner. I will have to say that I got the Moroccanoil treatment as a present, & it has SAVED my hair!
-Use a hairbrush with boar bristles & brush your hair upside down. I’ve written about Mason Pearson brushes a few times on my blog, & they’re high end expensive hair brushes, with real boar bristles, coveted by the British Royal family. However, they are expensive (starts at $100!), there are lots of less expensive versions on the market! The special thing about boar bristles is that they help distribute the oils from the top of your head & down the rest of your hair. Help fight frizz by flipping your head over & brush!
-Use a hair mask every week. These hair masks in particular, have natural butters / oils in them; & natural oils are better for hair conditioning, for silicone ones just sits on top of it.
-Use a hair straightener. This usually works for me; when I run a straightener through my hair it automatically makes it less frizzy. However, if you have damaged hair it’s better to add some argan oil to your hair, & then go through it with a straightener to seal in the moisture.
-Use a cotton t-shirt to dry your hair. Cotton t-shirts, unlike terry cloth towels, don’t cause as much frizz. The fibers of terry cloth are more likely to irritate hair strands whereas a plain cotton tee wouldn’t.
2 Satin Pillow Cases, $12, comes in 18 different colors!
-Sleep on a satin pillow. The smoothness of satin glides across your hair instead of irritating it.
-Stay away from hair products with alcohol in them. Alcohol obviously dries out your hair. Hair products like i.e. hairspray, without alcohol are hard to find. BUT there are affordable options out there, like the ones listed above.
-If you have / want straight hair: Consider a keratin treatment. You may have heard of women getting keratin treatments at hair salons; (keratin is a protein naturally found in hair) but it’s not necessary to spend that kind of money, when you can do it right at home! Another tricky thing: Many keratin products have formaldehyde in them, but the ones I listed here, don’t. And.. they’re affordable!!
