Secrets to Defrizzing
Frizz is no one's friend, so take it down with one of these moisture-rich products that your hair will thank you for
your sleekability factor? As the weather gets balmy, your hair is
likely to turn into a halo of frizz that will make even the most
beautiful cut and color look like a neglected, unruly mess. To the
rescue: products formulated to repair frayed cuticles and calm
out-of-control tresses. Make these a part of your warm-weather daily haircare routine and you'll win the fight against frizz.
Frizz happens when humidity seeps into the hair shaft, causing it to
expand. Frizz-busting shampoos like Oscar Blandi Shampoo di Jasmine -
Smoothing Shampoo and Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Shampoo have
moisturizing ingredients that leave hair well hydrated so it won't
absorb moisture that's in the air the way parched strands will. Both
also contain olive oil to boost shine, so your hair looks especially
radiant on those sunny days.
In winter you needed a conditioner that helped plump up skinny strands
flattened by dry indoor heating. During spring and summer what you want
is a conditioner that will slim down tresses swollen with moisture
absorbed from the air. Switch to a conditioner designed to help the
cuticle lie flat such as Marc Anthony Frizz Smoothing Conditioner,
accomplishes that task by coating your hair with a light film of silicone and silk fibers.
Don't think of leaving home on a steamy day without protecting your
hair with a product that helps seal the hair cuticle. John Frieda
Style Sealant Creme locks out style-ruining elements and locks in
shine. Put a small dab into your palm, rub your hands together and
gently glide over wet or towel-dried hair. If your hair is long and
thick, dispense a double dab.
The final critical step in your antifrizz defense is a lightweight
styling and conditioning cream (John Frieda Secret Weapon) or serum
(Phyto Phytolisse Finishing Serum for Frizzy Hair) to help tame
flyaways and maintain a nongreasy glossy finish throughout the day.
Keep one in your purse for quick touch-ups in case you find yourself
caught in a spring shower or making an impulsive beach getaway.
