How to Reduce Frizz

July 31, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Having smooth, frizz free hair is a blessing. For most of us though we do a lot of damage in our everyday lifestyles. We need to blow-dry, we need to style with our high temperature heating tools and at the end of the day our hair has taken the blunt of it all. All of this can be avoided given  you follow some simple steps. I am not saying that you cannot use your hairstyling tools but just try using them in a different way. Don’t stick to one type of shampoo either, doing so will result in hair that just has no life. It is a good idea to change shampoos at least once a month. I‘m sure you  have seen the products on commercials and in Drug stores where they claim they can help reduce frizz, this is true but there is a technique to it where-as not everyone would know what this technique is.

Anytime you are wanting to reduce the amount of frizz, do so  by adding frizz free lotions or creams right after you are done washing your hair. Your hair must be absolutely soaking wet for almost any of these types of product to work. Removing any water from your hair reduces your chances of becoming “frizz free” So, while your hair is profusely dripping all over your bathroom floor add your preferred  frizz free tonic directly to your hair or use a quarter size dollop in your palms and then run it through with a wide tooth comb.  Using a wide tooth comb reduces frizz by allowing the curls or waves to stay together. When you use a brush or fine toothed comb you separate the curl thus giving the look of frizz once your hair is dry.

If you are needing to blow-dry your hair, try using a diffuser. A diffuser is an attachment you can obtain from most hair salons or Drug stores which attaches to the end of your hair dryer. There are diffusers now that are already attached and come as one. Air is dispersed evenly and in a much calmer fashion than a blow dryer. If you held a diffuser directly to your hair you would see minimal movement. Because of this air being distributed evenly throughout you are helping to improve the look of your hair by keeping your curls or waves together.

Use frizz free shampoo’s and conditioners,  you will find a product that works for you by trial and error or by word of mouth. I suggest buying from a salon because these products have the proper PH balance required to maintain a healthy head of hair.

If you are prone to frizz try to not brush out your hair when it is fully dry this again will separate your curls setting up the frizzies for sure. As mentioned use a pick or wide tooth comb and always start at the bottom and work your way up. Also, deep condition at least once a week using the leave-in 15 min. heat activated kind.

You may think a hair dryer is just a hair dryer, however this is just not true! There are many benefits to using a professional hair dryer!

A professional blow dryer may cost you a little more than a regular hair dryer, however the difference in results are well worth the extra cash! Professional dryers come with many different features which will provide different results yet the main goal is a faster drying time and healthier, shinier, frizz free hair.

Some of the choices in Professional Hair Dryer Features may include;

  • Ionic hair dryers – Negative Ions work to eliminate frizz, dry hair faster and smooth hair.

Even better, is that their are hair dryers that have all of these features in one dryer. Just as when choosing a hair straightener, you want to look for the best features and one hair tool that features as many as possible so you are getting the best hair styling tools possible!
