These storms are beginning to grate on us now. Not only is it having an affect on our wardrobes, it’s also causing havoc with our hair, too. So to combat the bad weather, along with putting those bad hair days at bay, here’s a handful of helpful tips on how to tame frizzy hair.
Before we get down to the nutty gritty on how to tame those unruly locks of yours, let’s talk about what causes such stress to our well-groomed locks and sends our perfectly styled tresses AWOL. The main culprit for frizzy hair is humidity. Yes, the annoying change in weather can cause our hair to act in an ill-mannered way and shock not only our hair cuticles but those around us, too. Another thing that sends our hair strands into a frizz frenzy is the lack of hydration. That’s why air conditioning and cold weather can all have an affect on our hair as they absorb the moisture from our locks and leave us to deal with frizzy hair.
Now that we’ve covered what causes our hair to behave badly, here’s how to tame frizzy hair and keep your locks looking as lustrous and sleek as possible.
Indulge in Hair Oil
The first step to tame frizz hair is to add a hair oil into your hair care routine. Hair oils are great for feeding the hair with plenty of moisture and keeping dry, unruly locks smooth and hydrated (as mentioned above, one of the main causes of frizzy hair is lack of hydration!). So, including a hair oil into your hair care routine every once in a while or weekly pampering session, is definitely worth the benefits. A hair oil we like to indulge in every so often is the Argan Secret Miracle ‘10’ Leave-In Spray Treatment. Infused with the special Argan oil, this nifty spray doubles up as a frizz buster and works at softening and nourishing our locks, too.
Switch Up Your Conditioner
If hair oils aren’t your thing, alternatively you can tame frizzy hair by swapping your daily conditioner for one that’s full of moisturising goodness. The Tigi S Factor Smoothing Conditioner (and the whole S Factor range for that matter), serves to banish frizz by intensely moisturising the locks for a smooth, soft, salon-worthy finish. Better yet, why not treat your hair to a leave-in conditioner or a nourishing hair mask? You can easily whip up your own hair mask up with our home remedy recipe for frizzy hair here.
Heat Up the Styling
Want to know how to prevent lacklustre locks? Then the key is in the styling. Although we recommend not overdoing it on the heat supply, giving your hair a good blow dry can actually tame frizzy hair. This is because the hot air seals your hair cuticles to leave your locks looking and feeling super sleek and gorgeously smooth (click here for top tips on how to blow dry your hair properly). So, when your next hair wash is due, remember to blow dry your hair after to prevent those unruly locks from spiralling (literally) out of control.
Choose Your Tools Carefully
Our final tip on how to tame frizzy hair is to invest in a decent hair brush. One hair brush we can’t live without is the Ibiza Hair Brush. Not only does it create beautiful body, its natural boar, ergonomic cork and retractable bristles also leaves your hair feeling super soft and shiny, so we can wave goodbye to frizz once and for all!
And, if all else fails, then just work it! Tie your hair into a high top knot or work the bedhead look for day. Who knows, you might just start a new trend for us all.
