The poor cousin of shiny, glossy, manageable locks, frizzy hair is an unruly pain in the butt. But that doesn’t mean you should hide your mop under a baseball cap all summer long! Here are five simple strategies for your smoothest hair ever. Isn’t it time you take charge and show that frizz who’s boss?
1. Use a hydrating shampoo & conditioner
Frizzy hair is thirsty hair, so it’s essential you nourish your strands properly with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner. Otherwise, guess what? Your dry hair’s going to guzzle that humidity up like a raspberry Slurpee.
Opt for prods created especially for tackling frizz, such as Goldwell’s Dualsenses Just Smooth range. Formulated with moisturising Kukui nut oil, the products restore hydration and smooth the hair structure. A good hair routine starts in the shower, and the Just Smooth Taming Shampoo is as gentle as water as it cleanses while protecting your colour, while the Conditioner instantly detangles and makes hair more obedient.
2. Skip the heat styling
While a hair iron is the weapon of many an unruly-locked lady, it’s really just a short-term fix and can actually exacerbate your issues by stripping the hair of moisture. Same goes for your hair dryer. To minimise frizz, let your hair air dry until it’s damp, not sopping, before blasting it with your dryer. Skip the tools when you can and, whatever you do, make sure always apply a protective product before heat styling.
3. Sleep on a silk pillowcase
It might sound a bit Princess and the Pea, but sleeping on silk really does have beauty benefits, and not just for helping prevent wrinkles. Silk helps your hair (and skin) retain more moisture than slumming it on regular old cotton, and also prevents frizz-causing static and pesky tangles caused by tossing and turning.
Don’t overwash your hair
Natural oils are your BFF, frizzy femmes. So it’s a bit silly to flush them all down the drain with daily washing.
Smooth fly-aways with a frizz-fighting serum
If there’s a styling product made for fuzzy, frizzy, static-y locks, and those #*&^% fly-aways, it’s a serum. The Goldwell Just Smooth 6 Effects Serum works to smooth your locks in not one, not two, but SIX ways. Think anti-frizz, humidity control, taming and smoothing, with better manageability and enhanced natural shine.
