Frizzy, unmanageable hair is no fun, however there are some easy ways to reduce frizz and keep your hair smooth! If you live in a humid climate, your hair can definitely suffer with all the added moisture. We're born with a certain texture of hair but that doesn't mean there aren't some amazing ways to reduce frizz that keeps your hair looking it's best. Scroll down for some tips!
One of the great ways to reduce frizz is to use a boar bristle brush instead of the typical rubber and plastic ones. A boar brush is gentle on your hair and also easily smoothes and straightens your strands. Invest in a good brush that draws your natural oils from roots to ends, and your hair will be frizz-free in no time!
Hair serums are wonderful for adding moisture and preventing unmanageable hair. They also protect your hair from heat damage. Use a little while your hair is damp, focusing on the ends and working your way up. Then after you've styled your hair, rub a little on your hands and smooth out any frizzy areas! This method works great for me and my hair feels soft and conditioned.
If you've ever skipped conditioner, you know how coarse, frizzy and unruly your hair can be. Shampoo naturally strips the oils from your hair which is why we need conditioner to replenish them back (unless you have super oily hair and don't need conditioner). Pick a good, hydrating conditioner and focus on the ends first and then apply the remaining amount sparingly to the top portion.
I don't like to use hot tools daily, but when I first wash and style my hair, a flat iron can do wonders for smoothing frizzy strands! The difference is pretty dramatic and a good flat iron will smooth and add shine to your hair while leaving minimal damage.
Some days your hair can be out of control no matter what you try to do. When that happens, don't hesitate to tie it back in a chic up-do! There are tons of quick and stylish up-dos that are even more perfect for hot summer days. Brushing it back will also reduce the frizziness that wearing it down can initiate.
If you shower at night, it can be tempting to just go to bed with wet or damp hair. This is a mistake as most of you know, because in the morning you're left with a tangled and frizzy mess that takes a lot of time to fix! Instead, make sure you take the time to dry your hair and tie it back in a loose, top knot. You'll wake to smoother strands and more volume!
Lastly, you should go to bed on a silk or satin pillow case because there is less friction against your hair as you sleep. Regular cotton pillowcases, which most of us use, tug and pull on your hair as you sleep, making it dryer and frizzier overall. Choose sheets that have a silkier finish.
Hopefully these tips will leave you with frizz-free hair! Got any more tips to add that we could all benefit from?
