Fix Frizzy Hair – Tips, Tricks, and More
Frizzy curly hair can become a headache for some of us. This look makes the hair look more drier and frizzier rather than sitting flat.
It is said that persons with curly hair is more prone to this type of disaster than persons with straight hair. The reason for this, is because curly hair is much more drier than the straight hair.
The most important thing to keep in mind when dealing with curly hair is to avoid drying it out. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. The curlier the hair is, the more care needs to be taken with it. Flat irons will indeed bring curl under control.
If you are struggling with frizzy hair you can try putting a small amount of hand cream in your hands then running it through your hair. This will help the stray strands stick together and ultimately hold your hair together more as a cohesive whole making you look much more beautiful.
A high-quality, boar bristle brush might be the solution to your frizzy hair. Many people suffer from frizzy hair. A good way to smooth hair is to pair a blow dryer with that boar bristle brush. Use the hair dryer to blow air downward and brush at the same time.
DIY Curl Cream
3 tablespoons aloe vera gel
3 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons shea butter
1. Put all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and mix until well incorporated.
2. Apply to your wet hair beginning in the middle of the head and going all the way down to the ends.
3. As you are doing this, wrap the hair around your finger to make curls.
4. You can air dry or use a blow drier and style as usual.
To get the best look with natural and bouncy curls, do this after each shower.
Unless a great deal of care is taken, flat ironing can quite easily damage hair, and long term can even lead to baldness. This is, of course, in addition to the risks of burning the hair while using the iron. Excessive washing is the number one enemy of curly hair.
The tighter the curls in the hair, the less washing it should receive. It should ALWAYS be conditioned after every washing, with a conditioner that specifically says upon the bottle that it is a moisturizing conditioner. After washing and conditioning, hair should be just blotted dry enough to no longer be dripping wet and then combed and brushed.
COCONUT OIL, HONEY AND AVOCADO TREATMENT
• 1 tbsp honey
• 3 tbsp coconut oil
• ½ ripe avocado
1. Heat the coconut oil in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Let it cool until warm. Mix coconut oil and honey together in a bowl. Mash the avocado in a separate bowl with a fork and add to coconut oil and honey combination.
2. Mix well.
3. Comb and detangle your hair, then divide it into sections. Apply the mixture from roots to ends, making sure to thoroughly saturate the hair. Note: this part can get a little messy, so you may want to wear an old t-shirt for this.
4. Once you’ve covered your hair with the mixture, tie it up and let it sit for anywhere between half an hour to two hours—the longer, the better. You can wear a shower cap and sleep with it on overnight, but don’t keep it in for longer than a day (you may risk actually smelling like a compost bin).
5. Rinse out hair mask. Shampoo and condition as usual.
I would recommend doing this hair mask about twice a month, but if you have dry strands like myself, I would also do a weekly coconut oil mask treatment in between to keep them hydrated.
A spray on leave-in conditioner should now be applied, such as the one made by Ion. To avoid having a wild unmanageable riot of a head of hair in the morning, braiding the hair after applying the leave-in conditioner works wonders.
Before brushing or combing at any other time, wetting the hair down with a spray-in conditioner/detangler is a good idea. This makes combing and brushing much less of an ordeal, with fewer snags and less painful pulling, which is always a boon when dealing with children’s hair.
Also, applying a shine spray when brushing or combing at times other than post-shampoo helps revitalize hair, making it glisten while also moisturizing. The methods and manner of brushing and combing play a big role in curly hair management.
First, it bears repeating, NEVER BRUSH DRY. Use an aforementioned spray, or at the very least dampen the hair. Second, it must be done in stages to avoid breakage. A wide toothed comb should be used first. The comb should not simply be dragged through the full head of hair.
It needs to be done in sections. Once the wide-toothed comb is no longer hitting snags and tangles, switch to a hard bristled brush, again staying in sections. Once this is no longer hitting snags, then a fine toothed comb is called for, still working the head in sections.
Finally, a soft brush can be used. Depending on what manner of styling is being done, the sections may or may not need to be maintained any longer. For example, if the desired style is a half-dozen separate braids, obviously the sectioning needs to be kept.
Unless you were born perfect, you need a little advice here and there to look better, as well as, spend less time and money doing it! However, if a simple single ponytail is the coiffure du jour, the soft brush is sued to sweep it all together gently.
