We all love a warm, bright, sunshine day! Casual walks in the park or oceanside naps can be friends to some, and yet foes to those whose hair is most susceptible to frizz. All that encounter it shares the mutual feeling that frizz is a constant nuisance; a pain of which that doesn’t seem to go away. Aside from being a daily, undesirable chore, what else do we know about frizz?
For one, frizz preys upon on all three hair types. It is non-discriminatory. Secondly, it occurs when keratin proteins in the hair shaft come in contact with humidity. And since there is no escaping the sun, finding the right methods to keep our frazzled strands under control would without question, save our lives.
Whether or not you regularly apply heat to your hair amidst your routine, rest assured that these bits of information will do away with your “I play with electrical sockets” look.
Let’s begin with the process for those who live heat-free…as long as they’re not outside. Shampoo the hair using a smoothing keratin shampoo. It nourishes the hair and diminishes frizz right off the bat. Follow that up with a smoothing keratin conditioner, and rinse it out within five to ten minutes. This will further hydrate your hair, giving it a stunning, silky finish.
After the final rinse, towel dry your hair. Since you’re a heat-free guy or girl, styling creams or serums come next! In this case, use an advanced keratin smoothing serum. Lots of these serums are humidity resistant, which is precisely what you need!
Because you know your hair better than anyone else, pay extra, special attention to areas of the head where you notice the most flyaways. Moisturizing to the tips can reduce the risk of dryness.
Lastly, apply a light styling foam that’ll preserve curl and take out that frizzle frazzle.
For my not-so-cool heads, you’ll want to shampoo and condition using a smoothing keratin option as well. No heat just yet! Wait until the hair is more on the damp side, then proceed with applying a thermal protectant spray.
On your mark, get set….BLOW!
During your blow-drying process, have a round brush handy. Of course, we must blow dry by the section and allow the brush to follow through to the ends of the hair as you apply the heat.
Once your hair is completely dry, use an additional amount of smoothing serum before you begin to flat iron. If you’d like, you’re also free to apply smoothing serum after you’ve flat ironed your hair.
Now, rather than saying, “Here comes the sun,” you can confidently say, “Hey, Sun! Here comes me!”
