According to Mark Townsend, a celebrity hairdresser, "Your hair loses moisture throughout the day, so by midday, the cuticle (the outermost layer of your hair) opens and lets in the outside air, creating a frizzy mess." As the hairstylists of Rihanna, he offered 15 tips to fix frizzy hair.
15. Choose Sulfate-free Shampoo With Glycerin
Sulfate-Free shampoo with glycerin can help fight frizz by penetrating the hair shaft and moisturizing it from the inside part. Besides, it creates a protective coating on the outside of your hair shaft as well.
It is essential to apply conditioner to add moisture to your hair. Or, the cuticle will continually open to let the air in, thus making your hair frizzy. Select a conditioner that contains glycerin and other great moisturizing ingredients, such as coconut oil or Shea butter.
13. Skip Shampoo Once Or Twice A Week
Every other day, you can apply conditioner instead of shampoo on your locks and rinse it. If you have fine hair, use a light conditioner. If you have thick hair, use a conditioner with a rich formula.
12. Use Hair Mask
Use a moisturizing mask at least once a week on your hair. It can help fill the holes in your hair shaft that absorb the outside moisture and create frizz.
11. Air-dry 90% Of The Way Before You Blow-dry
During the winter days, when the air is less humid, let your locks air-dry 90% of the way. Then, use a dryer to finish.
10. Brushing Your Hair With Natural Oils
Apply some natural oils to your hair, hang your head upside down, and brush your hair with the brush to spread the oils all over your hair. Moisturizing can help block humidity.
9. Use Dry Oils
Apply a dry oil to the tip of your hair to blocks the hydration when your hair is still wet. The oil is like a barrier to prevent liquids from entering the strands of your hair. After your hair is 90% dry, use a round brush to get a smooth finish.
8. Create A Bun After It's Dry Or Using A Curling Iron
After applying dry oil from the ends to the root of your locks, dry your hair, and create a bun or use a curling iron to get looser waves. The heat will keep frizz at bay.
7. Use Cream Hydrator And Diffuser To Tame Frizzy Hair
After washing your hair, when they're still wet, apply a cream-based product from the root to the tip. Warm it between the palms of your hands and fingers first, then press it on your hair. Shape your hair by wrapping them around your fingers.
6. Always Keep Travel Size Products For Touch-up
Remember to keep travel-size products with you. If you have thick or rough hair, hairstylists suggest a quick-drying foaming lotion for enough moisture to hydrate your hair; if you have fine hair, apply a light serum from mid-shaft to the ends.
5. Use A Serum On Rainy Days
When your hair is still wet, use the serum on them and fix them in a bun to smooth it.
4. Use Body Lotion For A Smooth Pony Tail
According to Garrison, if the back of your ponytail tends to be frizzy, apply a bit of lotion in your palms, rub them together, and wipe your fingers over your hair.
3. Use fixative to Fix The Bottom of Your Bun
Do not use the serum to smooth frizz because it does not work, Garrison says. Instead, bring a travel-size fixative with you.
2. Moisturize Your Hair Before Your Workout
Before you train, you'd better apply a moisturizer on to your hair, because the sodium from your sweat can dehydrate your hair.
1. Wrap Your Hair With A Silk Scarf, Then Go To Sleep
During the night, your cotton pillow will absorb all the moisture in your hair. To stop it from happening, comb your hair into a bun, and wrap them in a silk scarf, which will retain moisture.
