How to Get Rid of Frizzy Hair
Whether it’s the middle of a scorching summer or the dead of winter, frizzy hair can strike at any time! While some hair types are more prone to it than others (looking at you, thick hair) you don’t have to fight the battle of the frizz alone. If you’re bored of your dry ‘do and want to bring back the sleek locks you know and love, here are some tips on how to get rid of frizzy hair.
Frizzy Hair Products
First of all, there are plenty of products on the market designed for precisely this dilemma, so you’re sure to find one that works for you. Schwarzkopf’s Osis+ Tame Wild Smoothing Anti-Frizz Cream and their Anti-Frizz Shine Serum are a great place to start, as they do exactly what they say on the label. The folks at Schwarzkopf are experts at keeping frizzy hair under control, bringing back the natural shine to your locks when all the moisture has been sapped out of it. L’Oreal also have their Techni.Art Anti Frizz Spray, which is quick-drying, locks in muchneeded moisture, and boasts a fancy UV filter to make sure your hair is always looking like you’ve just stepped out of the salon.
Best Shampoo for Frizzy Hair
If you're feeling experimental, why not try some natural remedies to stop frizzy hair? Both avocado and banana have been proven to stop frizzy hair dead in its tracks. All you have to do is mash them up – mix the avocado with some coconut oil and the banana with a little olive oil and honey (no, this isn’t a recipe, we swear), then apply it to your hair in the shower after shampooing. Since avocado and banana are natural conditioners, if you do this once a week, you should start to notice the effects pretty soon. Speaking of coconut oil, it truly is a miracle hair product! Done right, it will banish frizz almost immediately – just warm it up (not too hot) and massage it into your scalp for 30-40 minutes, then rinse it from your hair, before shampooing and conditioning as normal.
How to Stop Frizzy Hair
To keep unruly frizz at bay, it’s also a good idea not to shampoo (or use dry shampoo) too often. Instead of daily washes, try waiting two or three days between shampoos. It sounds simple, but changing your hair dryer settings to ‘cool’ can also help tame frizzy hair (or just not blowdrying for so long). This will allow your hair’s natural oils to do their work and keep things looking polished. After drying, a detangling rake comb or brush will help smooth things out, but be careful not to brush your hair when it’s wet as that’s when it’s most fragile. Watch out when towel drying too, as rough movements will cause damage – remember to give your hair a little TLC now and then!
Hairstyles for Frizzy Hair
For those days when you just don’t have time to stress about your hair, buns and topknots are the best hairstyles for frizzy hair. Lucky for you, it’s a style that’ll never go out of fashion and they’re supposed to look messy-chic (in case anyone asks!). Think ‘just got out of bed’ hair, but all day long… Plus, you can stick a pencil in there and people will think you’re so busy with work, you don’t have to time care about your locks today. Win-win, we think!
