How to Control Frizzy Hair
Top Frizzy Hair Tips from Hush Hair Salon, Birmingham
Do you suffer from frizzy flyaway hair? If so, brace yourself for the Autumn season, that can leave the hair tangled, dull and frizzy. Controlling frizz can be a hassle, hence why it’s important to keep your hair well maintained and conditioned. If you want to know what causes frizz and how to combat it, here are some top tips from the expert hair stylists at HUSH hair salon in Birmingham.
What Causes Frizzy Hair?
It is generally believed that frizz is mostly caused by a lack of moisture in the hair, however, humidity can also contribute to it. Throughout the day your hair tends to lose moisture, which can be caused by environmental factors such as dry air or pollution. On humid days frizz arises due to the intense moisture and humidity in the air.
When frizz occurs, the cuticle, which is the outermost layer of the hair strands, opens up and lets the outside air in. This then results in your hair becoming a frizzy mess. The main problem with frizzy hair is that it’s dry, so water is water is often needed to rectify it.
Top Tips on How to Control Frizzy Hair
Have a keratin protein treatment – A protein-infused conditioner will both manage frizz and create shine. We can transform frizzy hair into sleek straight locks and give you colour-treated hair that shines! A great deal of research has gone into creating the Nanokeratin hair treatment which uses a micro-molecular formula that penetrates deep into the hair follicles. Your hair will be protected against humidity and other harmful environmental toxins and influences.
De-frizz hair by wearing hair in a bun or a protective style – After you’ve shampooed, conditioned, braid your hair into two pigtails or put it up in a bun. When your cuticles are locked into place, frizz-fighting is more effective.
Finger comb hair to distribute oils – When combing frizzy hair, it is best to finger comb for more effective results in tackling those tangles. While your hair is still wet, apply a moisture-locking dry oil to your hair to act as a barrier and keep the liquids from penetrating. Once your hair is 90 percent dry, but still slightly damp, run your finger through sections of your hair to detangle any knots. Alternatively, you can also detangle hair when it is dry by wetting the tips of your fingers before detangling.
Use L’oreal Smartbond when colouring hair – Colouring hair with at-home hair kits can leave your hair damaged, causing it to frizz out more often. If you want to colour hair, it is best left to the professionals. At our Birmingham hair salon, we can apply Smartbond to your hair colour as a pre-shampoo. It works by targeting weaker parts of the hair to strengthen it and reconstruct the weak ion bonds. The result is great hair colour that looks and feels sensational. Talk to your colourist about adding Smartbond to your hair colour at HUSH Hair Salon in Birmingham. It is a great treatment to add to your hair colour service because without it you risk:
Condition hair regularly – Fighting frizz is all about depositing moisture in your hair. You want to avoid your cuticle opening up to let moisture in. So look for a conditioner that contains glycerin as well as other hydrating ingredients like Redken conditioner. Apply from the tips all the way down to your ends. Avoid drenching your roots with conditioner so it can have some breathing space. Redken can be purchased on our salon.
