Whether it’s the middle of a scorching summer or in the depths of winter, frizzy hair can strike at any time! While some hair types are more prone to it than others, you don’t have to fight frizz alone. If you’re bored of your dry ‘do and want to bring back the sleek locks you know and love, here are some tips on how to get rid of frizzy hair.
Frizzy Hair Products
First of all, there are plenty of products on the market designed for precisely this dilemma, so you’re sure to find one that works for you. Schwarzkopf’s Osis+ Tame Wild Smoothing Anti-Frizz Cream and their Anti-Frizz Shine Serum are a great place to start, as they do exactly what they say on the label.
L’Oréal also have their Techni.Art Anti Frizz Spray, which is quick-drying, locks in much-needed moisture, and boasts a fancy UV filter to make sure your hair is always looking like you’ve just stepped out of the salon.
Best Shampoo for Frizzy Hair
If you're feeling experimental, why not try some natural remedies to stop frizzy hair? Both avocado and banana have been proven to stop frizzy hair dead in its tracks. All you have to do is mash them up – mix the avocado with some coconut oil and the banana with a little olive oil and honey, then apply it to your hair in the shower after shampooing. Since avocado and banana are natural conditioners, if you do this once a week, you should start to notice the effects quickly.
If you’re yet to discover coconut oil, what are you waiting for? It truly is a miracle hair product! Used correctly, it will banish frizz almost immediately – just warm it up and massage it into your scalp for 30-40 minutes, then rinse it from your hair, before shampooing and conditioning as normal.
How To Stop Frizzy Hair
To keep unruly frizz at bay, it’s also a good idea not to shampoo (or use dry shampoo) too often. Instead of daily washes, try waiting two or three days between shampoos. Also, it sounds simple, but changing your hair dryer settings to ‘cool’ can help tame frizzy hair. This will allow your hair’s natural oils to do their work and keep things looking polished.
After drying, a detangling comb or brush like the Tangle Teezer, will help smooth your hair out. Just be careful not to brush your hair when it’s very wet as that’s when it’s at its most fragile. Watch out when towel drying too, as rough movements will cause damage – remember to give your hair a little TLC now and then!
Hairstyles for Frizzy Hair
For those days when you just don’t have time to stress about your hair, buns and topknots are the best hairstyles for frizzy hair. Lucky for you, it’s a style that’ll never go out of fashion and they’re supposed to look messy-chic, so you don’t have to spend loads of time on it!
