With the weather warming up, it is time to start thinking about beating summer frizz. I have fine hair that is super prone to frizz. But I have some tricks that I use to keep things smooth.
1) Start With a Good Set of Smoothing Products: The key to smooth, frizz-free fair is to use a good set of smoothing products such as Whole Blends Smoothing Hair Care. The new Whole Blends line of products from Garnier focuses on ingredients and formulas to nourish, hydrate, and repair. There are differing lines of products. I’m focusing here in the smoothing products. Garnier Whole Blends Smoothing Hair Care contains a rich formula with Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter Extracts to smooth fizz-prone hair.
You can find the Garnier products at Walmart in the Hair Care section. I’m told some stores have a special display for them, but my store did not.
I find that the shampoo and conditioner products do a good job of moisturizing, while the leave in conditioner and the smoothing oil are great for styling smooth frizz-free hair. I particularly like the oil. More on that below.
2) Use The Right Tools: Nothing will frizz up your hair more than than damaging when brushing and combing. Avoid brushing your hair when it is wet, and use a wide tooth comb for detangling and styling. Another great item to have is a super absorbent hair towel. Lightly blot excess water from your hair before drying to help cut down on drying time. Avoid vigorously rubbing your hair when toweling it dry.
3) Protect From Heat Damage: Blow Drying and using a hot iron and great ways to tame frizzy hair. But heat also does damage. To help protect your hair use a leave in conditioner and or spray oil to help protect you hair from the heat. As you dry your hair, aim the heat down the hair shafts, which will keep your hair laying smooth.
4) Tame Fly Away Hair With The Comb And Oil Trick: A great way to both prevent frizz and tame those loose ends is the spray your comb with Garnier Whole Blends Smoothing Oil. Then simply comb your hair. The comb trick makes sure that you don’t use too much product, which will weigh your hair down. It also event disperses the oil. You can also do this with a brush, but I prefer the comb since brushes tend to damage my hair.
5) Style With Flat Irons or Smoothing Brushes: Unless you are really good at doing your own blow out (I am not), smooth hair is best achieved with a flat iron or a heated brush. I like to use a heated brush for quick smoothing without total straightening. Be sure to use your leave in conditioner and/or oil before styling with heated hair appliances.
6) Odds and Ends: A few other tricks to try are using satin pillow cases, which will not take moisture out of your hair the way cotton can, getting regular trims, and shampooing less often. I tend to use just conditioners some days and shampoo every other day.
