Most of us suffer from hair that is dry and frizzy at some stage of our lives, particularly those of us with curls. There are however, things you can do about it. It can be smoothed out in a few simple ways, depending on the cut and style of your hair. In this article we outline some of our favourite ways to take on the frizz!
Visit the hair dressers for a haircut
It may be that you need a trim to cut off the dry, split ends. Find a good stylist or hairdresser near you; perhaps ask a friend or family member for a recommendation. Asking someone who has similar hair to you is a good idea as is visiting different salons to find a stylist who's good with dry, frizzy hair.
Consider a deep-conditioning treatment
A deep- conditioning treatment puts lost moisture back into dry, frizzy hair. If you don’t want to pay salon prices for one, there are home remedies that you can buy including hot oil treatments.
Create a new parting
Often our hair gets frizzy in the place where we part it. So, consider parting it a different way or not parting it at all.
Forget shampoo for a while
Shampooing to excess can dry out your hair. It is advised to use a rich conditioner daily in the shower, and leave some in after rinsing. Really a conditioner
is all you need to keep your hair clean from oils, and dirt. When you do shampoo, make sure you use a brand that is specifically formulated for dry, frizzy hair.
Stop using a towel all the time
Drying your hair with a soft cotton t-shirt instead of a towel can help tame the wild frizz look as they are gentler than towels.
Get the right brush
During blow-drying your hair straight, use a large, round brush to smooth and even out dry frizz. Dry hair from the bottom up, and roll the hair around the brush. Let the dryer hit the area for 30 seconds and ensure to dry the hair on the brush and close to the scalp.
There are many things you can do to improve your dry and frizzy hair, only some of which are discussed above. Other tips include never brushing your hair when it’s dry, not using thin-toothed combs because these will tear dry, frizzy hair and scrunching your hair as it air-dries to even out curls. We hope the above has been useful and it will lead to wide spread smooth hair!
