The hot weather might make you happy, but when the heat and humidity rise, so does your mane, often in the form of frizz. Other than hiding under a hat all summer, there are other options to keep that mane tamed. Using the right shampoo and conditioner can help keep your hair looking calm and sleek.
When it comes to fighting the frizz, nothing does a better job than silicone. That is why "Allure" magazine recommends using shampoo and conditioner that contain this helpful smoother. Wash your hair with the shampoo and then apply the conditioner. Allow it to work its magic on your mane for about five minutes before rinsing it out. Squeeze the water out of your hair with a towel and then get your blow-dry on. Your hair should stay nice and sleek despite the humidity.
One of the reasons that your hair likes to get its frizz on is because it is dry. Help it out by shampooing and conditioning with products that add moisture to your hair, suggests "Marie Claire" magazine. When your hair is healthy and loaded with moisture, it's not as likely to frizz out. This means better looking locks for you. Wash your hair only every other day. Shampoos strip the natural oil out of your hair, so cleansing it every day often leads to dryness.
Most everyone gets by with a little help from their friends, including your frizz-fighting shampoo and conditioner. Serums that contain silicone keep your locks from frizzing out, even on the most humid days. When paired with shampoo and conditioner, your hair is sure to stay sleek. Deep-conditioning your 'do once a week works wonders against the frizz. Weekly use of a hair mask that contains keratin hydrates your hair and leaves it looking sleek and chic.
Yes, running your fingers through your hair feels lovely, but it also creates the perfect conditions for frizz. Touching your tresses roughens up your cuticles, particularly when your hair is wet. A rough cuticle typically translates into frizzy hair. The same goes for drying your hair. Rubbing a towel back and forth over it seriously roughens those things up. Squeezing the moisture out, however, gets your hair dry without causing damage. Keeping your hair trimmed is always a good idea, but is even more so when it's prone to frizz. Split ends like to work their way up the hair shaft, which often turns into unruly tresses. Keeping them away from your hair can prevent frizz from forming.
