Lazy Girl’s Guide to Hairstyles to Tame Frizzy Hair

Summer provides the opportunity to opt for carefree looks and even go makeup-free. However, for many of us, our hair doesn’t want to cooperate. In fact, we have to double our efforts to ensure that the added humidity does not result in the annoying summer frizz. You might have spent hours styling your hair, but once you step out into the humidity, it instantly turns your hair into a ball of unsightly frizz.

As Barb has pointed out in her article Frizzy Hair Fixes with active use of moisture strategies, frizzy hair during the humid summer months can be prevented. You can also opt for hairstyles to tame frizzy hair rather than stressing over frizz when it shows up. It’s easy when you know how!

Pre-Styling Tips

To ensure that you can fight off frizz, here are some strategies that you can use prior to styling:

  • Provide a coat of armor for your hair; hence, using a frizz-free serum is a good start. You can also try using a leave-in conditioner. These products coat the hair cuticle to resist humidity and prevent frizz from forming as soon as the heat causes the hair to dry up.
  • In addition to using frizz-free serum and a leave-in conditioner, invest in a moisturizing cream for summer. This, too, provides a shield against humidity so your hair cuticle won’t expand. At the same time, it provides enough hydration for the hair so it is less susceptible to frizz.

One of the easiest tricks for styling hair and hiding frizz at the same time is to go for a sleek hairstyle. It could be anything from a sleek top knot or ponytail, this will help to tame your hair and keep frizz from showing up. When you opt for a tight hairstyle during summer, it will discourage frizz as the humidity won’t be able to penetrate into the hair follicles. In order to get your hair to look sleek, it is recommended that you wash your hair every other day.

In addition to going sleek, styling your hair straight can also help to cope with frizz during summer. Use a temperature-controlled hair straightener. Try to limit one pass on each section of the hair because too much heat can also promote unnecessary frizz, of which you are trying to avoid. The goal is to get every strand to behave well and stay in place. You can finish off your style with styling pomade, which also helps add sleekness to your straight hairstyle.

You can also try adding texture to your hairstyle as the added texture will help camouflage any appearance of frizz. Go with a messy texture such as a beachy wave, which also fits right into the season. Simply apply an adequate amount of texturizing spray to create a textured look. It gives an added bonus of making hair look more voluminous.

If neither of the above suggestions suit you, why not try throwing your hair up? Any type of updo hairstyle will no doubt help control frizz during summer. At the same time, it is a good way to stay fresh even when you are out and about during the summer. Some of your chic choices include a messy bun or a textured ponytail.

Lastly, go for the braids! Aside from the beachy wave hairstyle, this is a popular choice during summer . . . and for good reason. You won’t have to worry about frizz when you are braiding your hair because any strands that are out of place seem intentional and just fine as is.

Which of these hairstyles will you be wearing this summer?

How to Repair Damaged Hair

How to Repair Damaged Hair

The Smart Girl’s Guide on How to Repair Damaged Hair

We have all been there. As we look down at the counter and see little hairs covering the counter top and we have lost count of the hairs we have pulled out of our hair brush, we find ourselves looking at our reflection in the mirror wondering, “Is my hair dry or damaged?” Today’s tale is about how to repair damaged hair. There are three major types of damage when it comes to your lovely locks.

 

Mechanical Damage

Your hair looks and feels dull ( like the hair of your favorite childhood doll) little pieces of hair fall onto your clothes. In some cases the hair looks singed, kinked and fuzzy.

  • The Cause –  brushing and teasing the hair in excess (picture a 1950’s beehive), and using thermal styling tools without the proper products.
  • The Solution – Use a good conditioning treatment once a week such as Joico Kpak Intense Hydrator, or Uans Crema. Also use a thermal protection spray such as, Bain de Terre Magnolia Thermal Iron Protector, or Paul Mitchell Hot Off The Press, each time you use a flat iron or curling iron.

 

Environmental Damage

Your color fades and your hair doesn’t feel clean;  it feels like product build up is on your hair.

  • The Cause – Sun exposure and pollution.
  • The Solution – Most professional hair care lines have U.V. protectants in their products and there are many leave-in conditioners that have U.V. protectants as well, such as Matrix Biolage Daily Leave In Tonic and Sebastian Potion 9 Lite. A good clarifying shampoo like SOMA Clarifying Shampoo, once or twice a month (depending on how much product you use) will help as well.

 

Chemical Damage

Your hair looks and feels fuzzy, it will not hold a style, looks like frayed cloth. It breaks off , inches at a time.

  • The Cause – over use of chemical services such as hair color, lightening, perming or chemical straightening.
  • The Solution – Stop whatever chemical process you are doing right now. Give your hair a break for a while – hats are in this season. You need to get a good deep conditioning treatment done with your stylist ASAP. If you can’t get to the salon – I highly recommend JOICO Kpak Revitaluxe. The newest addition to the Kpak family – this treatment is restorative and strengthens the hair with each use. For a leave in, Redken’s Extreme Anti Snap is terrific, just as it’s name states – it will help your hair from breaking or snapping off.

I highly recommend that you use Professional Salon products. Many of the other brands on the shelves have too many sulfates, detergents, silicone’s and alcohol which defeats the purpose.  Your hair may feel good but some of those products don’t penetrate the hair – they just coat the hair, which leads to further damage.
