Have Frizzy Hair All The Time? 3 Tips To Smooth It Down
You can get frizzy hair if you live in an area that gets high humidity, as well as if you towel-dry your hair, wash your hair in hot water, use heat styling, and wash your hair too much. Fortunately, there are things you can do to smooth your hair, three of which are listed below.
Use a Keratin Hair-Smoothing Treatment
A keratin hair-smoothing treatment will calm frizzy hair. You will also hear this referred to as a Brazilian blowout. This is a product that you apply to your hair. You then blow-dry your hair and use a flat iron to seal the product onto the hair.
You can purchase keratin hair-smoothing treatment to use yourself at home. You can also visit a spa to have this treatment done. This may be your best choice as spas have the best products and know exactly how to apply the product, and then dry and flat iron your hair. Keratin is a natural protein that is found in your nails, hair, and skin.
Use the Right Shampoo
The shampoo you use can make a big difference in how frizzy your hair is. Look for a shampoo that is moisture-based and has a conditioner. When you have frizzy hair, your hair fibers are misaligned. A well-moisturized shampoo and conditioner will help realign the hair fibers causing your hair to be much less frizzy.
You can find this kind of shampoo at drugstores, grocery stores, etc. You can also visit a beauty salon and purchase this shampoo. This may be best as the salon stylist will be able to tell you the best type to purchase. If you go to a spa for a keratin hair-smoothing treatment, ask the technician what shampoo they recommend.
Dry Your Hair Correctly
When you wash your hair, you should never vigorously dry it with a towel. This will cause your hair fibers to become misaligned, resulting in frizzier hair. Instead of a regular towel, purchase a microfiber towel to dry your hair with. A microfiber towel is much softer than traditional towels and will still dry your hair just as well.
Wrap your head in the towel and leave it there as long as you can. This will allow the towel to soak up more water. Remove the towel gently and pat your head with the towel to remove any remaining water.
There are other ways you can help with frizzy hair, such as using a wide-toothed comb and using a hair mask.
