There are many reasons to hate frizzy hair. It is hard to manage. It looks messy, no matter how much you brush and treat it. If you are tired of living with this type of hair, it may be possible to make a few changes to improve its looks. It all comes back to giving your hair what it needs to heal and remain healthy. There are a few simple changes to make to improve frizzy hair for good.
Get Rid of the Damage
A good place to start is with a haircut. You may not want to do it, but removing the old and damaged hair becomes necessary in most situations. This hair is damaged – and it is nearly impossible for you to fix it. When you cut off the dry, frizzy ends, you give the rest of your hair the ability to grow in a more controlled manner. Stop battling the problem and focus on the healthy hair that is already on your head. A good haircut is the first step.
Reduce Heat Applications
The next step is to stop using high temperature tools on your hair. Those curls or very straight hair looks are great, but they are also causing damage to your hair. Heat, when applied to hair, changes its composition. While your hair can handle some of this, if you are doing it every day or most days of the weak, you are damaging the actual composition of the hair, leaving it more brittle and frizzy as a result. When you stop using hair dryers, curlers, and straighteners, at least for a short amount of time, you give your hair the break it needs.
Condition With Care
It is often best to schedule a deep conditioning treatment with your hairstylist if your frizz is getting out of control. This is important because, unlike all other types of treatments, deep conditioning works to restore your hair’s quality and overall feel. You can improve your conditioning process at home as well. Invest in a higher quality product and be sure you are using it well enough to get the results you desire. Conditioning your hair on a routine basis, following your stylists’ recommendations can give you the best overall results.
Try Some At Home Remedies
While you should turn to your salon for the most important treatment for frizzy hair – because they are able to help you address the underlying problem and heal it – it is also important for you to consider a few at home remedies that can make managing frizzy hair much easier to do from the start.
One option is to use apple cider vinegar on your hair. This can help to improve the pH balance of your hair. It works as a way to reduce the frizzy almost right away. It can also help to remove all of the product residue that is on your hair, causing it to feel brittle and damages.
Another option is to deep condition it with a high quality, organic coconut oil. This type of oil is called lauric acid. When you apply it to your frizzy hair, the hair can absorb it. This can help to improve moisture control in your hair, allowing for the frizz to start to fizzle out. It is rather easy to use this. Just massage a bit of the coconut oil into your hands and then run your hands through your hair. Massage into the scalp as well.
Argan oil is another option. This is a type of oleic acid. It contains a high number of antioxidants. These, including Vitamin E can help to heal your hair from the follicle up. This is a very natural process. It can even help to improve damage caused by heat treatments as well as the sun. You just need to apply a few drops to your hands and then rub it into your wet hair for results. Try to get it evenly placed throughout your scalp.
These steps make it easy for you to see significant improvement in your frizzy hair. They can help you to love your hair again.
