Although frizz is usually caused by a lack of moisture in your hair, humid weather conditions can also play a part. During the day, your hair loses moisture and by midday, your locks can be looking like a hot frizzy mess! Luckily, there are a number of things you can do to combat frizzy hair. Here are some of the tips your hairdresser will advise.
Choose a High Glycerine, Sulphate Free Shampoo
Shampoo that is packed with glycerine will help to protect your hair shafts by moisturising them fully. Glycerine also creates a protective coating on your hair, preventing it from breaking. When looking at bottles of shampoo, take a look at the ingredients. The ones that are highest on the list, are the ones that are included in higher quantities. Choose the hair products after discussing it with Hairdresser Manchester.
Don’t Skip the Conditioner
Conditioner is a vital part of the wash and shouldn’t be neglected. Again, look for a high glycerine conditioner as this will help to lock moisture into your hair. Avoid going for 2-in-1 products as these very rarely provide everything your hair needs. Ask your Hair stylist Manchester which brands they recommend if you are struggling.
Let Your Hair Air Dry
Using hot tools on your hair like hairdryers and straightening irons is the worst thing for frizzy hair. Instead, let your hair air dry, and ensure you use a protectant spray before using any other heat-based tools. If you need to dry your hair quickly, you should at least towel dry it as much as possible before using a hairdryer.
Brush Your Hair Regularly
Another top tip that Hair salon Manchester City Centre recommend is brushing your hair regularly. When you brush your hair, the oils in your scalp will move through your hair, ensuring it retains its moisture. You can buy a small travel brush and keep it in your handbag if you need to. It’ll be a lifesaver on really humid days!
Carry Hair Serum Everywhere
One final tip is to carry hair serum everywhere. If you’ve ever been caught out in the rain, you’ll know how poufy your hair can become once it starts to dry. Hair serum can be applied while your hair is still wet and will prevent any poufiness from happening. If you can’t carry hair serum everywhere with you, at least carry a hair band and some bobby pins so that you can tie your hair in a bun until you can sort it out.
