Frizzy Hair FAQs
No one likes frizzy hair, but what's causing it and what can you do to prevent it? Find the answers to your frizzy hair questions:
Q: What causes frizz?
A: Frizz happens with over-use of heat-styling tools, chemical damage, over-exposure to the sun or chlorinated water.
Q: How can I prevent frizz from happening?
A: Start with getting an inch or two trim every 6-8 weeks to cut off the flyaways and split ends. Then on a daily basis, your shampoo and conditioner will make a big difference. Using a texture-balancing shampoo and conditioner will give your thirsty strands the moisture they need. You can strengthen your strands to prevent future damage by treating your hair once a week with a deep conditioner like Redken All Soft Heavy Cream.
Q: Is blow drying ok?
A: If you protect it, it’s ok. Blow drying makes hair more susceptible to frizz, so use a thermal treatment like Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum to seal the strands and speed up the drying time. Or skip blowing dry and apply a leave-in treatment like Paul Mitchell Full Circle Leave-In Treatment or a styling cream like Redken Frizz Dismiss Rebel Tame on damp hair and let it air dry.
Q: How can I smooth out the frizz?
A: Calm frizz and flyaways with styling products that smooth the unruly locks. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum is a multitasking serum that tames frizz and leaves your hair shiny and silky. Or try a pomade like American Crew Pomade to smooth flyaways.
If you’re not sure which anti-frizz products is right for you, ask your stylist for recommendations. They know your hair and can help you take control, so you’ll be back to looking like yourself in no time.
