It is that time of the year when we are battling with bad hair days daily. Let’s be honest for how long are we going to rely on Binnie to hide them? It is time ladies that we fight against the humidity of the fog. Okay, that was a bit exaggerated but you get the point right?
So here are some tips for someone who has tested and tried every single thing on this planet earth to avoid this frizz and here is what I came up with:
1. Tie Your Hair When You’re Outside
You should tie your hair when you are outside because the more your hair is exposed to the humidity the worse it is going to get. So for those bike rides or walks, tie your hair in a bun or a ponytail to avoid getting a puffball once you are back home.
2. Buy A Silk Scarf
Okay, so the biggest difference was seen when I switched my normal scarf to a silk scarf. Here is why. Silk scarves are the best when it comes to avoiding hair friction and hence avoid any type of frizz whatsoever. I’d suggest that you even switch your sheets to silk to avoid getting friction while you sleep.
3. By Light Products
Frizz is a problem we often try to combat once it’s happened, but it’s far more effective to prepare your hair for the outside world with the right products. I love Moroccanoil Treatment for this, it makes hair feel strokable soft as well as helping it hold style.
4. Avoid Hair Dryer
Don’t use a hairdryer to dry your hair. Intense heat from the hairdryer soaks up the moisture from your hair cuticles, resulting in dry and dull hair. Frequent and prolonged usage of a hairdryer may make your hair dry and frizzy too.
5. Use Lukewarm Water
Use moderately warm water for washing your hair, neither too hot nor too cold. This helps close the cuticles of your hair strands, sealing in the moisture. Closed cuticles prevent dirt to enter and also shield the scalp from pollution.
6. Avoid Harsh Chemicals At All Cost
So anything you can do to lessen the damage is a bonus, as it will help your hair stay sleeker. This can include using less bleach, always spritzing a protective spray on locks when you straighten or blow-dry, and choosing heat stylers that are less harsh. I usually go for Wow Coconut Shampoo & Wow Coconut Conditioner to avoid any paraben or sulphate to avoid the use of any type of chemicals on my hair.
So these were some of the hair tips that I’ve discovered over the years and still love to do them. You can start by using one then working your way up or else it is most likely that you end up using none of them.
Try these tips and lemme know what you think about them and I’ll see you in the next blog.
