Are you ruled by Frizz? Do you spend hours trying and failing to combat unruly and unmanageable tresses? Frizz is caused by changes in humidity levels, which causes each hair strand to expand and reshape (and….it’s true: central heating and air conditioning also cause havoc with frizz).
To keep frizz levels under control, it is critical that you keep hair hydrated but there are also other tricks and treatments that will help you achieve sleeker, smoother and more manageable tresses. Follow these simple steps:
1. Avoid Over-Cleansing
Washing your hair too frequently can result in a loss of natural oils, which help to nourish and hydrate. Aim to wash hair two to three times a week, especially during the winter when the central heating is on.
2. It’s all in the technique
Shampoo your hair using your fingertips, and apply and massage to the scalp. If you suffer from frizzy hair, you need to cleanse your scalp, but make sure you keep your dry mid-shaft to the ends of your hair in better condition. As the mixture of water and shampoo will rinse over your hair, they will cleanse and remove a build up of products, but there will be limited friction from over rubbing.
3. Invest in professional products
Hair oils are lightweight and won’t weigh down fine tresses and will penetrate further into the hair follicle to smooth and hydrate. We love Kerastase Elixir Ultime which is a versatile oil that protects, strengthens and treats tresses and is enriched with a rich blend of precious oils, including argan and maize. Elixir Ultimate is suitable for all hair types and deeply nourishes, controlling the look of frizz whilst boosting shine and reducing the appearance of split ends. This oil can be used pre or blow-dry, and throughout the day for a nourishing pick-me-up. Fortified with thermal and humidity protection, you can expect your hair to look shiny and feel more resilient.
