how to tame dry frizzy hair
Frizzy hair is the result of a lack of moisture in your hair or, inversely, high humidity levels in the air; the latter is so common in Malta that frizzy hair is a common problem. When the cuticle, the outermost layer on your strands, is healthy and smooth, the condition of your hair is smooth. The cuticle opens up when there is lack of moisture in the hair or high humidity in the air, letting air in and creating a frizzy mess. Find out how you can tame dry frizzy hair with these easy tips.
frizzy hair care
Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner and following a good hair care regime will certainly affect the condition of your hair. Read our article on how to care for frizzy hair and discover also some great treatment for frizzy hair and frizzy hair products.
brushing your hair
Brushing hair stimulates the hair follicles to produce more natural hair oil and distributes it evenly along the strands. This helps keep your hair hydrated and helps block out humidity. Hang your head upside down and brush your hair from the scalp to the ends to avoid dry frizzy hair. If you have impossibly curly hair, you can still brush your hair daily – try the tangle teezer!
how to tame straight frizzy hair
If you have straight hair, try using the dafni hair straightening brush instead of styling with a hair dryer. Its unique technology smooths the cuticle with less heat application and stress than the traditional hairdryer and bristle brush method. And because it is used only on dry hair, you can allow your hair to dry completely naturally.
how to tame wavy frizzy hair
If you have wavy hair, you can use the old-fashioned styling trick of putting your hair in a bun directly after drying it. As your hair cools in a bun, your cuticle locks into place and you get smooth loose waves when you undo your hair. For tighter curls, use a barrel iron.
how to tame thick, coarse, frizzy hair
Tame frizzy, thick, coarse, and curly hair with a cream hydrator, such as milkshake argan deep treatment, and a diffuser. Apply from root to tip on wet hair, squeezing it into the hair instead of rubbing it in. Shape your curls around your fingers and let your strands air dry or aim a diffuser down your cuticle on low speed and high heat to dry it.
how to tame those flyaways
If you tend towards frizzy hair, you know that those tiny growing hairs and flyaways can be the biggest nuisance. They seem to have a life of their own at the first sign of humidity, whether it is after workout or a bit of rain. We recommend milkshake’s glistening spray for frizzy hair for touch-ups, to eliminate static and make dry hair more manageable.
how to tame dry frizzy hair hacks
Caught out and about looking like you put your finger in an electric socket? Use hand or body lotion or lip balm! These are usually easy to get hold of as one of your girlfriends is bound to be carrying one in her handbag. Apply lotion to your hands as you usually would and smooth over your hair before it has been completely absorbed by the skin. Use a small amount of lip balm on the fingers to avoid a greasy effect.
keeping it together at night
Cotton pillowcases can tend towards sucking up all the moisture in your hair. Wrap your hair in a silk scarf to retain the hair’s natural moisture as you sleep so that you wake up a little smoother.
