We usually hear thewords “long hair, don’t care.” But what if it’s frizzy hair? Would you care?
Personally, I do. And anyone who has experienced this annoyance when on humid days can understand where I’m coming from.
Fighting frizz means fighting heat, humidity, and quick showers in summertime. It doesn’t matter how good your conditioner is or how long you’ve set your hair. When you step out of the house, you’ll say hello to frizzy hair in minutes.
But you don’t have to fret about frizz. Keep reading to know how to avoid frizzy hair.
Keep your tools cool – It’s almost a non-discussion to use tools that help us tame our crazy tresses like flat irons and blow dryers. But as much as possible, muster all your willpower to keep your hair away from extreme heat daily. Let your hair air dry if you can. Let it rest from curling, flat-ironing, and blow-drying, because they can cause hair damage.
Towel me gently – Be gentle when drying your hair with a towel. However, a regular towel can cause cuticles around each strand of hair to get damaged. This leads to frizzy, broken looking strands. To avoid this issue, use microfiber towels to towel dry your hair. Microfiber is more gentle on your scalp and hair fibers.
Health over length – Keep your hair looking smooth and sleek, not frizzy and frayed by keeping your tips trimmed. Regularly trimming the ends of your hair will keep split ends at bay and split ends are a big reason for frizz!
Investment is not a waste – Invest in high-quality products that can help you prevent damage from the heat of the flat iron and the humidity of summer! An anti-humidity spray, anti-frizz serum or a heat protection spray can all become your weapons in the war on frizz! If your hair is a bit oily, you can choose an oil free hair serum.
Hands off – It can be an unavoidable habit, but keep your hands off your hair. Constantly touching or messing with your hair can cause frizziness.
Blow dry thoroughly – Make sure your hair is completely dry if you prefer blow drying your hair. Extra water left, no matter how little, will be the cause of the frizz when you’re outdoors. Also, remember to always point your blow dryer towards your feet when blow drying your hair. Going opposite the grain will damage your cuticles and will make your hair dull. Lastly, give your hair a cool blast of air from your blow dryer to help get rid of frizz.
Cool it down – Give your hair a final, cool rinse after shampooing your hair to help flatten the cuticles. When you blow dry, you’ll see a smoother finish.
