We know we’re not the only ones that have battled frizzy, unmanageable hair. There is nothing more daunting than waking up to a mane that resembles Hagrid’s from Harry Potter. But as always, we have your back and that is why we are here with the tips and tricks to help you fight the frizz!
Our tip numero uno is to get a good haircut. Yes, you heard us. Take your cute ass to the salon and ensure your hairdresser gets rid of the dry, dead ends. We also recommend using the trusty Davroe Ends Repair Leave-In Treatment to prevent, repair, moisturise, and seal split ends and prevents hair breakage. We love this product because it can be applied at any time to tame frizz or flyaway ends.
Yes, there is nothing better than a hot, steamy shower but let us tell you, your hair thinks otherwise. When the temperature of the water is too hot the hair cuticles are raised, leaving it dry before you have even stepped out of the shower.
Wash your hair wisely. To ensure you are reducing frizz you want to hydrate the hair, products with a high alcohol content will likely leave your hair high and dry. Our top picks to wash with are Delorenzo Defence Shampoo, RPR Fix My Frizz Shampoo and Redken Frizz Dismiss Shampoo.
Conditioner is a key player in maintaining sleek, smooth, and soft hair – Goals! Personal favourites include Nak Hydrate Conditioner, Goldwell Dual Senses Just Smooth Taming Conditioner, and Juuce Miracle D.Frizz Conditioner.
Editors tip: when towel drying your hair, avoid rubbing the towel against the hair and scalp. Opt for a microfibre towel or towel turban when drying – This will help to reduce the overall frizz!
In case you haven’t got the memo, managing frizz requires moisture and sometimes conditioner just doesn’t cut it! A luxurious hydrating mask or leave-in treatment will help soften and smooth the hair. Everescents Organic Cinnamon and Patchouli Deep Treatment is a go-to. An intensive mask that nourishes, replaces moisture, reconstructs and restores hair structure. Safe for coloured hair too!
While we recommend staying away from heat styling tools if you are trying to manage unruly hair, we understand sometimes you just need to create some glam waves or a fresh blow-dry – If this is the case, our tip is to use a heat protectant.
Nak Thermal Shield is a cult fave and there is a reason why. Designed to protect and shield hair from temperature extremes. This beauty safeguards hair during styling, resists against humidity and helps prevent styling breakdown, frizz and flyaway. Oh and it is vegan too!
And last but not least, the tools you use matter. Ensuring your hairbrush doesn’t promote friction or leave hair static is important when it comes to a frizzy mane. This is where the Tangle Teezer comes in, the perfect tool for detangling both wet and dry hair. This gem gently detangles and smooths hair while also massaging the scalp for healthier hair follicles and natural oil distribution. They come in all different shapes and sizes, so there is something for everyone. Shop here.
