How to tame frizzy hair
Choose a sulfate-free shampoo
A sulfate-free shampoo is the first step to luscious hair. The next time you go shopping, turn that shampoo bottle around and take a good look at the ingredient list, if you see ‘sodium lauryl sulfate’ or ‘sodium laureth sulfate’, throw it away and run the other way.
Sulfates are known to cause frizz. They might also strip color from your color treatments. If you have naturally frizzy, damaged, or dyed hair, choose a paraben and sulfate-free shampoo.
Use a hydrating hair mask every week
Keeping the hair hydrated prevents the hair cuticle from opening up and letting in moisture, which can contribute to frizz. Try doing a hair mask or a specialized hair treatment once a week to keep hair less prone to damage from styling and moisturized.
Look for products with coconut oil or castor oil; they are amazing for hydration. You can also make a DIY mask at home.
Let your hair air-dry 90% of the way before blow-drying
Don’t begin to blow-dry your hair as soon as you get out of the shower. Let your hair air-dry at least 90% of the way. Then, use a dryer. Be sure to use it on a low heat setting and hold it six inches away from your hair at all times. Also, constantly keep it moving so that it doesn’t overheat a certain section of the hair and cause damage.
Ditch the towel for a microfibre towel or t-shirt
Your hair is the most vulnerable when it’s wet, so doing something wrong can damage it, really damage it. This is why, you need to use the right fabric when drying wet hair.
Towels are harsh and can break your hair, leading to frizz. Avoid using rough towels and go for a cotton t-shirt or microfibre towel.
Use a mascara wand with hairspray
For small areas of frizz, use a mascara wand and spray it with hairspray. This will allow you to target a certain, small area of your hair, and the flyaways will be smoothed out quickly.
This trick is loved and used by celebrities and stylists across the globe. However, be sure to use an alcohol-free hairspray as the alcohol can swell the cuticle and create more frizz in the long-run.
