The most troubling part of having curly hair is battling frizz that comes along with it. Unlike the light halo of stray hair that frizz is in other hair types, for curly hair it's completely different. Frizz is coarse and stubborn, which makes any hairstyle tedious and unmanageable. It's time to put that to an end. This season, curly haired folk need not fear frizz anymore because these 6 hair care tips will finally put it to bed.
1. Never Brush
Never make the fatal mistake of brushing your hair, especially when dry or else you'll be saddled with a head of frizz until your next wash. Brushing opens out the curl and makes it even frizzier. To detangle, use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb with damp hair.
2. Try Diffusing
When blow drying your hair, switch up your nozzle with a diffuser. Rather than trying to straighten your curly texture, a diffuser will retain your curls while drying the hair and reduce the amount of frizz in it.
3. Plop Maybe
Another way for curly haired owners to dry their tresses is by hair plopping. It sounds strange but is an effective method followed by many to dry their curls while also keeping them smooth and soft.
4. Layer Up
A little hair product can go a long way when it comes to curly hair. Even a smidgen can drastically reduce frizz while holding the natural shape in place. Products like Garnier's Oil-In-Cream, Morrocan Argan Oil and TIGI After Party Cream can be used to help smoothen the texture and drive frizz away.
5. Don't Skip Conditioner
Conditioner and curly hair go hand-in-hand so don't skimp on this product. Either use an in-shower conditioner while bathing or a leave-in conditioner afterwards on damp hair to prevent frizz and flyaways from appearing once you hair dries.
6. Mask It
Of course, there's a homemade mask that can help eliminate frizz without doing that to your wallet. To make it, mash together the pulp of half an avocado and 1 banana with 4 tablespoons of olive oil. Massage into the lengths, leave for half an hour and wash off with warm water for smooth, joyful hair.
Now go ahead and break up with frizz once and for all, curl friends.
