If you fight frizzy hair on the daily let me be the first to say I feel your pain! As if dealing with sweat among other seasonally induced maladies isn’t difficult as is, that good ‘ol humidity can’t help but to muss up hair too (and not in the desired Jennifer Aniston beach waves kind-of-way).
Allow me to share with you my hair care routine for frizz. I’ve been asked how I achieve smooth and glossy locks (particularly throughout the summer) and the truth is that I rely on the use of a few products. You may or may not be surprised to learn that my hair is naturally frizzy and, well, big – but until 80’s dos make a comeback I’m left to tame my mane with sprays, serums and pomades.
My hair care routine for frizz begins with the use of One ‘n Only Argan Oil Spray Treatment while my hair is damp. A spritz or three typically does the job, upon which I then finger comb it through my hair to help distribute the product.
When my hair is dry and before I style it from scratch, I use Ion Silk Drops. I typically use about a dime size amount and then proceed to rub it into my hands prior to applying it to my hair. If you have thinner hair I would recommend only using about half of this amount and distributing it throughout your ends only.
If flat ironing my hair, I typically use Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey as a post-styler. I use the tiniest amount of this product as a little goes a long way; ultimately it helps to tame and smooth flyaway hairs so that I’m left with silky and shiny tresses. Throughout the winter I find this product particularly useful to help combat static, but if you have thin hair I’d probably stay away from this product altogether as too much can leave your hair feeling greasy. Instead, I’d stick to use of silk drops or a serum instead.
On subsequent days I use One ‘n Only Argan Oil Cream-to-Serum Styler prior to applying heat to my hair. The product pumps out as a cream but as you begin to rub into your hands it turns into a serum that is lightweight enough for daily use. Side note: it smells amazing.
As a just-in-case, I always keep a comb on hand in the event that my hair requires an emergency brush-through. While I’ve not yet cracked the code on maintaining 100% frizz-free hair (throughout humidity and all), the use of these products combined help to at least control my otherwise unruly hair.
