    Four Frizzy Hair Remedies

    Fighting frizzy hair is an ongoing battle for sure, so hairdressers and product manufacturers are always working on the problem.  Tips and tricks for fighting frizzy hair are improved on from year to year. So, what shakes out as your best ways for taming frizzy hair today?

    Of course, smoothing treatments like keratin hair relaxers, Brazilian treatments and other smoothing treatments, will tame frizzy hair and are available in hair salons for about $300.  Initially, there was a lot of controversy on these smoothing treatments, specifically those that emit formaldehyde, a well-known toxin.  Better smoothing treatments are available now without the use of these harmful chemicals. If an in-salon smoothing treatment just isn’t in your budget this year, here are the best tips today for smoothing your locks and subduing frizzy hair at home.

    Use the right frizzy hair products for your hair type

    Frizzy hair is usually dry hair, which needs to be moisturized. If you have dry hair, use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner as a regular routine.  A leave-in conditioner as well as a weekly deep conditioning treatment when the weather is hot and humid can do wonders to end frizzy hair.

    Add a last cool rinse in the shower to close the cuticle for more shine and squeeze dry with a towel and not rubbing your hair dry to avoid ruffling up the cuticle.

    Look for labels on product brands you like that contain buzz words like, moisturizing, anti-frizz and straightening. Renowned stylist, Nick Arrojo of “What Not to Wear,” says are his favorite smoothing products are silicone serum, straightening balms or defrizzing creams. Apply these products to damp hair before blow drying or flat-ironing. Silicone serum, creams and oils have been the big sellers this year for minimizing frizz and creating lots of shine. Here are my favorites;

    • de Fabulous Amazon Secret MuruMuru Anti-Frizz Shampoo
    • Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque
    • Macadamia Oil Treatment

    Another type of product to watch for in defeating frizzy hair, especially in tropical climates, is an anti-humectant. An anti-humectant will coat and seal the hair to prevent moisture in the air from getting into the hair shaft and swelling the hair. Aveda’s Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade, a bit goes a long way. It repels moisture and leaves a satiny finish to hair.

    Eliminate frizzy hair with an Ionic blow-dryer

    Shampoo less, condition more, and try one of the many Ionic blow-dryers on the market. Ionic technology works great for smoothing and adding shine to the hair. I’m using a professional brand ionic dryer, Hana air from and I absolutely love it!  Ionic rocks!

     A good haircut matters

    Have your hair trimmed regularly to keep the ends healthy.  Wavy and curly hair types should get a layered haircut versus a one-length hairstyle. Layers will lighten curly hair to allow for more defined curls.  Wavy hair types will have more defined waves when cut into layers.

    Steer clear from razor-cutting if you have frizzy hair. Razoring the hair is great for creating texturizing techniques and face framing layers, but it is the curse of death for frizzy hair types. Razor cutting will increase frizz for those most susceptible to it. Razoring shaves the hair shaft thinning the ends and not giving clear and clean blunt ends.  Thinned out, razored ends, will frizz every time!
