If you're consistently haunted by questions about how to tame and take care of your frizzy hair, then you've come to the right place. After all, it's a tough kind of hair to love, because it feels as though it's constantly begging for attention. But, no matter what kind of hair issues you have with your frizziness, we've got a bunch of solutions that are going to help you deal with the summer heat and the flyaway hair. So sit back, enjoy, and feel free to try any of these tips!
10 Choose The Right Shampoo
First thing’s first, you need to get the right shampoo for your hair. We recommend that you check the ingredients before buying to make sure that the shampoo doesn’t contain any sulfate. Instead, look for something that has plenty of glycerin, because this is what will help you combat the frizziness. Having any sulfate in the shampoo means your hair is going to dry up extremely quickly. Glycerin also creates a sort of a protective layer over all of your hair, which also keeps it from breaking.
9 Don’t Forget The Conditioner
Next up is the conditioner. You’ll probably want to get something with argan oil, keratin, and, as we already mentioned, glycerin. All of these ingredients are going to add more moisture to your hair and replenish the keratin levels in it. Having low keratin levels in your hair is often one of the many reasons why hair can become difficult to manage. And if you’re worried about weighing your hair down, apply the conditioner to the lower parts only and avoid the roots.
8 Use A Hydrating Mask
Another important part of keeping your hair looking healthy, moisturized, and have no frizz is hydration. That’s why you’ll also need to get yourself a hydrating hair mask, which you’re going to use about once per week. If you do a special treatment with a hydrating hair mask every week, you’re going to make your hair much more manageable. These types of masks help you close any holes in your hair, which lead to hair dehydration, which then leads to frizz.
7 Use A T-Shirt Instead Of A Towel
Using regular towels for drying your hair after you’re done washing it is another thing that adds and creates frizz to your hair. So, instead of using your regular towel, try using an old cotton t-shirt instead. You’ll be amazed at the difference you’ll notice! And if you don’t want to use any of your old cotton t-shirts on your hair, get a microfiber towel. These towels are equipped with a gentle technology that soaks all the moisture without breaking or damaging your hair.
6 Dry Using A Diffuser
Then comes the drying part. Here, you should wait until your hair is about 80-90% dry, before getting your hair dryer out. Make sure that once you do get the hairdryer, you’re also using a diffuser, which is going to bring a lot less heat to your hair, and it’s going to distribute all of it evenly. Having a diffuser along with your hair dryer is also useful for whenever you want textured or smoother styles for your hair.
5 Take Care Of The Bangs
If you’re someone who, along with frizzy hair, has bangs, or even if you’re someone who’s wondering whether they should get them, we have just the hack for you. Bangs tend to be a bit different from the rest of your hair, considering they’re generally shorter and can fall right over your face, which means they also come with separate instructions. They have to be dried with a hairdryer while they’re completely wet, and the strands have to be separated.
4 Try A Heat-Free Hairstyle
For the days when you don’t have the mental capacity or the time to deal with your frizzy hair, you should always have a backup hairstyle that you know works well, which you can easily pull off. If it’s incredibly humid outside, there’s no point in putting in even more effort to your hair, since you know it’ll get messed up as soon as you set foot out the door. Our favorite, which is by far the easiest and the fastest hairstyle, is to go with the messy bun.
3 Get Control Over Flyaways
If you have flyaways at the top of your head, you can easily fix this problem. All you need is a toothbrush and some hairspray. Just spray it on the brush, and then run it over the flyaways. Problem solved! And if you’re having trouble with the underside of your hair, you can also carry some bobby pins with you, that is going to give you additional security, and help you hide any frizzy hairs gone wrong. Just don’t use a smooth frizz serum, because it’s not going to help you.
2 Use A Silk Pillowcase
Most people already know that sleeping on a silk pillowcase is the best thing you can do for your hair as well as your face. Very few people actually practice this advice, but, trust us, this is one of the best things you can do if you have frizzy hair. Since the material is so soft, it’s much gentler to your hair and prevents breakage. And if you’d like to take it a step further, aside from getting silk pillowcase, you should also get a silk scarf. Put your hair in a bun, tie the scarf around it, and sleep like that to retain the moisture.
1 Sleep In The Right Hairstyle
Finally, the last thing you can do this summer, to get all of the frizziness under more control is to find which hairstyle is best for you to sleep in. There’s plenty of different strategies you can find, all over the internet, like tying up a loose ponytail at the top of your head, which will prevent you from squishing it. Or braiding it, and if you don’t want to braid it, just separate your hair in two parts, and make two strands on each side. Then, twist the two strands together, and you’ve got makeshift braids!
