Say goodbye to unmanageable hair for good!
Whether it’s the weather or just a bad hair day, frizzy hair gets all of us down, so we’ve put together a list of the best taming products on the market. Say goodbye to wild, wayward locks, and hello to sleek, gorgeous ‘dos.
Invest in a de-frizz styler
A straightener that actually does wonders for your hair? It’s possible, and it’s out. GHD’s new Platinum Hair Styler, R2 899 maintains a temperature of 185°C, so as not to damage hair, and is created with patented tri-zone technology, that closes the hair cuticles, to create a smooth and silky appearance: it promises 20% more shine.
Use keratin for slick shine
A keratin treatment or shampoo will smooth cuticles for softer, silkier hair. TRESemme’s Keratin Smooth Keratin Deep Treatment Masque, R76,95 for 300ml, fights frizz for up to 48 hours, so it’s perfect for humid summer holidays at the coast, and creates a protective barrier once activated by heat. Impressive!
Have a style that works with hair, not against it
“If you’ve got frizz, let your hair dry naturally, wear it wild, tong it, go big,” says celebrity hairdresser, George Northwood. “Even changing the parting helps adapt the way you style frizzy hair.” Use your fingers to work in L’Oréal Professionel Tecni Art Hollywood Waves Fatales, R296 for 150ml, into your hair for sexy curls on the go. This luscious creamy product fills in the cuticles, for super sleek hair with a bounce.
Mask the frizz
When the weather is hot and dry, your hair needs extra moisture, so be sure to use a conditioning mask. The more moisture in the hair, the less frizz you’ll have, as the moisture fills in the hair shafts. Remember to always leave the mask in for at least 5 minutes. My favourite this summer? Pureology’s Curl Complete Moisture Melt Masque, R369 for 150ml.
We all know that combing through curly hair is a disaster waiting to happen! Use a curl cream or conditioner on soaking wet hair, combing through with a wide-tooth comb so hair is evenly coated. Let your hair air dry, and say goodbye to any unruly locks. We recommend John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Daily Styling Spray, R95 for 200ml.
