Lather up less
Repeat after us: natural oils are frizz fighters. While we all love the feeling of a squeaky-clean crop, shampooing your hair washes away the natural oils that dry hair badly needs. In essence, less washing equals less frizz. Cut down shampoo sessions to 2 – 3 times a week and your dried-out locks will reap the benefits.
Resist the rub
On designated shampoo days, how you dry your frizzy hair is just as important as how you wash it. Resist the urge to vigorously rub it dry, instead pat the moisture out and wrap it in a soft and absorbent microfiber towel. This method avoids ruffling the hair’s cuticles, diminishing static and frizz. Plus, hair dries quicker making blowouts and styling easier. Not bad for something that costs under $10 from the drug store.
To brush or not to brush?
This is an age-old question for girls fighting the frizz. While expert options vary, we say you know your hair best so experiment and see what works for you. If you do need to brush or detangle your hair though, there are some tools that can help...
Don’t brush when wet
Hair is most vulnerable to damage when wet so tugging on tangles with a regular brush is asking for trouble. Running a wide-tooth comb through instead will minimize breakage and help spread any styling products.
Natural brushes are best
When it comes to blow-drying your hair or everyday detangling, a natural bristle brush can make a difference. The soft bristles won’t tug on strands and the natural fibers will even help distribute hair’s natural oils for soft, silky tresses.
