Whether you’re battling with humidity riddled hair in the sunshine state or Melbourne's four seasons in one day, it’s fair to say that instant hair help could go a stray to turn that frizzy hair into fresh salon vibes!
But first, let’s hash out a few back-to-basics as to how the frizzy hair comes about…
Incoming frizz 101:
Frizzy hair is caused when the moisture and natural oils in the hair are removed ( aka the hair is dehydrated). Hair strands crave moisture and will absorb it from environmental elements like humidity which can make the frizz situation loads more painful... Also, more often than not, we aren’t fuelling our hair with the right tools to de frizz!
So let’s consider these 4 pointers to tame the frizz:
- Turn down the heat on styling tools and be sure to use a heat protectant.
- Detangle with a wide tooth comb. When hair is wet, it’s at its weakest and brushing the bejesus out of it will only make it more susceptible to breakage. Comb from the ends up… gently!
- Don't over shampoo and use sulphate free. Why? Sulphates are made up of detergents to produce a lather effect but intern, strips natural oil from the hair which can make it dry which equals frizz. Sulphate free shampoos will retain your hair’s natural oils.
Use a trusty serum to seal, smooth and control the frizz. Apply to damp hair from mid to ends and comb it through to distribute evenly. Use after every wash to be on your way to silky, soft and tamed locks!
