Summer is unofficially here and even though the warm weather is creeping in, you likely haven't experienced too much humidity just yet. However, once this major problem sets in, it's goodbye sleek, calm hair and hello frizzy, out of control locks. If you're dreading the unfortunate frizz of summer, there are ways to help tone it down for good.
Cut it out
According to the experts at Self magazine, the first step in limiting frizz is to get an appropriate cut for your unique texture. Though you can tell your hair stylist what you want, the best way to ensure it's done correctly is to head to the salon with your locks naturally air dried. This will allow the hair dresser to get a sense of what he or she is working with and will help the stylist come up with the best plan of action, no matter your texture.
Another important step in the fight against frizz is to ensure your locks are getting enough moisture - the heat combined with the humidity can do a number on your hair. A great approach is to invest in a hair mask. After applying it, go head outside to sit in your favorite lounge chair for at least a half hour. The natural heat will help open up your hair's cuticles, allowing the conditioner to really seep in, the experts report.
You might think there is no greater feeling in the world than getting home from the beach, washing and conditioning your hair and then running a brush through your mane to get out any salt, snarls or seaweed from the day. Even though this might be just what the doctor ordered, it's important to remember to only use a brush to get out tangles on wet hair. Opting to brush dry hair can actually promote frizz, according to WebMD.
So, next time your locks get tossed around while riding around in the back of a Jeep with the top off, stick to brushing with your fingers to keep frizz at bay.
Products are your friends
The last trick to a frizz-free summer is to take a closer look at your hair products. For example, you'll want to search out a conditioner that boasts protein as an ingredient to help limit frizz and boost shine. Adding Steiner Kink Control Anti-Frizz Cream 150ml to your daily routine is another way to curb frizz, thanks to the product's unique formula that penetrates the hair surface and wards off problems in a flash.
