Fighting humidity, no matter your hair texture, is quite exhausting and very boring. Lets face it , if we just take the little extra time and have the pro “know how “…. defense against frizz can be won. Let’s look at some tips for how to get rid of frizzy hair, shall we?
I’ve learned one major lesson when it comes to hair and humidity, and that is your hairstyle should be an amped-up version of your natural hair texture. If your hair is fine, lank and pin straight, don’t choose a wavy hairstyle on a humid day, or vice versa if your hair is thick and wavy, don’t straighten your hair because it will regardless end up a frizzy mess.
One would consider doing this only if you have a base of curl, wave or texture of some kind. The battle of how to get rid of frizzy hair frizz starts with the shower.
When applying the conditioner, opt to comb this through with a large-tooth comb. Consider your part line already at this stage, as it should be the last time to comb your curl.
Rinse hair with lukewarm water in a downward direction with part line in place. Try not to disturb the hair by gently throwing hair over and wrap and twist it into a turban towel, which is the key to removing excess water without disturbing the curl formation. After a few minutes remove the turban towel and gently shake hair into place … do not comb
Spray with a curl product that will nurture and set the curl in place and allow hair to dry naturally. Once dry always use fingers do not comb or brush as it will agitate and create frizz.
All hair types, especially coarse and curly hair, holds a lot of water. Towel-dry by using once again a microfiber turban towel which squeezes the excess water rapidly from the hair without roughing up the cuticle, so that’s a major phase of getting our frizzy hair under control.
Apply a humidity and heat protector, which encases and protects the hair shaft. My favorite for thick coarse hair is the Iles Formula Curl Revive. It delivers a kind of cashmere finish to the hair. In the case of thin fine hair use the Iles Formula Finishing Serum, which delivers a gorgeous silky texture. Another choice, which is more like a structure texture, is Tresemmé Tres Two Climate Protection.
Make sure to get all the moisture out your hair while drying. MY favorite drying tool is the Dyson dryer. Blow dry on hot heat then finish with a cold blast to close cuticles. It’s super fast, light to hold and ionic against static electricity and frizz.
A silk pillowcase is an excellent sleeping accessory against hair frizz. Just don’t use it on a silk sheet or you will find your pillow slipping from under you. These are quite trendy now and can be purchased as one offs. Prices vary online from $15.00 to $85.00, so be sure you spend the extra money and purchase 100% pure silk, as a mix of synthetic will create frizz. My preference is the Slip silk pillowcase.
For a salon treatment in the case of very frizzy texture, one could consider a keratin treatment and in the case of very thin, fluffy hair, one could add some extensions to add extra weight to the hair. Just follow these tips and they will help guide you to beautifully structured hair movement without the dreaded frizz.
