Anti-Frizz-Tips for Curly Hair (I)
We know how worried you are about your hair’s frizziness: this enemy of your hair that attacks anytime all year around. Rainy days, relative humidity (…and not so relative…), dehydration of your capillary fiber caused by excess of sun or hairstyling products,… All these factors, together with the nature of some hair types may make it to be quite an endeavor to prevent your hair from curling.
Earlier, we gave some general advice on how to control hair frizziness for all hair types. In this post we will help you to control frizziness of curly hair with these easy tricks:
We are not talking about not having a beer every once in a while, but advise you to avoid hairstyling products that contain alcohol whenever possible. Alcohol dries our hair and weakens it, makes it look dull and frizzy.
Products that contain silicone and polymers
Although they talk a lot about how harmful silicone is to our hair, it’s not as bad as they paint it, especially not for wavy or curly hair. Silicones and polymers help control look and hairstyle, at the same time acting as a barrier between capillary fiber and the surrounding humidity, which is the main cause for fizziness. Nevertheless, each hair constitutes a world of its own. This is why you may want to try and use hairstyling products that work best for you.
Condition the ends of your hair
Make sure to keep the ends of your hair healthy and hydrated since this is the part of your hair where frizz and dryness is noted most. Use special products for hair ends by applying it from the middle toward the ends (never from the roots), as could be Absolut Repair Treatment Serum by L’Oréal or BC Repair Rescue Sealed Ends by Schwarzkopf.
Just as we recommended in earlier posts about hairstyling tips you can reduce the risk of frizz by applying cold water with the final rinsing thus sealing the cuticle to avoid flaking of your hair.
Whenever possible dry your hair by air-drying. Excessive use of hair dryer’s hot air causes your hair to dry out and frizz. After washing your hair dry it with a towel but without rubbing too hard (too much friction may cause cuticle). You may use a thin towel or an old t-shirt to dry your hair. This is much softer and less aggressive to your hair. And if you cannot avoid using a hairdryer use high quality equipment only such as Parlux or GHD. You will find them in our Hair-products-section.
