Smoothing Flyaway Hair – The Trouble with Frizz
Frizzy hair hits us all at some point or another. Whether you have thick, full hair or mousy limp hair, chances are when it rains (or for some of us, when you boil water nearby) your hair is going to frizz and spring up. The bad news is that there just is no way to cure your hair of its frizzy tendencies. The good news is that there are things you can do to calm it down when a frizz attack happens.
First things first – you have to buy the right products to treat your frizzy hair. Smoothing serums, heat-resistant gels and leave-in conditioners dedicated to helping smooth flyaway hair are all great ways to go in the product arena. Try asking your stylist to help you choose some products that will work for you specific hair type. There are also a few “don’ts” to keep in mind about frizzy hair that are important in its maintenance. Unless you use high-priced professional products to prevent it, which most of us don’t, excessive blow drying and straightening with hot materials can cause hair to split and frizz out much worse than usual, so keep these activities to a minimum. Another thing that can increase frizz is a bad haircut. Always make sure you see a stylist who knows what he/she is doing – some stylists can even cut split ends and frizz INTO hair! Finally, it is important to stay hydrated. Keeping enough water in you is the best thing you can do for your hair. It keeps the strands well-hydrated so they don’t frizz, but lie flat.
