If the hot weather we’ve had recently has turned your normally sleek hair puffy, unmanageable, and frizzy, this blog is a must read. Any type of hair can become frizzy in certain conditions, but curly or wavy hair that’s prone to dryness is usually the hair that gets it worst. The good news is, there are plenty of things you can try to stop frizz in its tracks.
Change up your products
Shampoos that are full of harsh chemicals like sulphates strip the hair of its natural protective oils and leave it dry, brittle, and more prone to frizz. Try using gentler, more nourishing hair products for healthier, more manageable locks. The Aveda products we have in salon are full of plant-based goodness and are far gentler on your hair and scalp.
Use a deep conditioning hair mask
Hair masks give hair a much-needed moisture boost. If your hair is getting all the moisture it needs from the mask, it won’t need to absorb moisture from the air. Use a hair mask at least once per week.
Use a nourishing hair oil
Used sparingly, a good quality hair oil like Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil can hydrate and nourish the hair and get rid of frizz.
Don’t wash your hair too often
If you wash your hair daily, stop. Washing too often can strip away the hair’s natural oils, leaving it dry and prone to frizz. You shouldn’t be heat styling your hair every day either.
Choose the right hair brush
Brushes with natural bristles can help reduce frizz because they’re better at dispersing the natural oils from your scalp down to the ends of your hair. This protects the hair, adds moisture and reduces frizz.
Use heat protection products
When you do use heat on your hair, use a heat protection product to protect your strands from the worst effects of your hairdryer and straighteners.
Apply Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother before blow drying
This product is a God send for anyone with frizzy hair. Apply it before blow drying to eliminate frizz, add moisture, and cut down on drying time. The best thing is, the effects last for 72 hours!
