Frizz mistakes to avoid!

Imagine, being perfectly dressed for the perfect date. Your favorite dress matched with your chic shoes and your only fear being humidity to frizz out your flawlessly set hair.
Now you can wave a goodbye to this ‘humidity fear’ and say hello to beautiful, luscious locks with or without the humidity nemesis!

Just follow a few simple tips that can make your mane from gloom to gleam!

1.  Know your frizz product:
The best frizz product for frizzy hair is the Anti- frizz serum. For curly hair, you can opt for a more creamy solution. Try and avoid styling products as they contain a high amount of alcohol and alcohol can suck up moisture, leaving strands brittle. 

2. Shampooing:
 A chief ingredient in most shampoos is sodium lauryl sulfate, which is an efficient cleanser. Hence, frequently shampooing your hair can leave your hair dull, dry and frizzy.

TIP: Try using shampoos that are sulfate free. Also, for fine hair, you can cleanse every other day and for thicker strands, you can go for three days without a wash.

3. Blow Drying cries:
Frizzing of hair post Blow Drying a problem? Move from blow drying in your bathroom to the bedroom or wait for the fog to settle in the bathroom.  Don’t shut off the dryer until your hair is completely dry.

TIP: Styling your hair with boar and nylon bristle brush can help seal and smoothen the cuticles. For curly hair try using your fingers instead.

4. Towel- Dry:
Vigorously roughing up wet hair with a towel can damage the hair, especially the cuticle. However, wrapping your hair with a towel is a better option. Lightly pressing and squeezing out the water preferably with a microfiber cloth is advised.

5. Conditioning:
Unless you have thin hair, make sure you use a deep conditioner and leave it in for about five minutes so that it can penetrate and add moisture and gloss to your hair. Leave-in conditioner products are the best for frizzy hair.

6. Avoid the Touch:
Try as much as you can to not run your fingers through your hair repetitively.  The more you lay a hand on it, the more you create the frizz.
