I am loving this warmer weather here in Ohio, but I am certainly not liking the humidity. I feel like I'm wearing a helmet that traps the heat on my head! I got my hair cut yesterday, and I feel so much better. I have a chin length inverted bob, and even having shorter hair can mean a ton of frizz in the summer. The humidity has been really bad for the last two weeks. I can straighten my hair and then POOF I walk outside and have a hot mess on my head. Learn how to get rid of frizzy hair fast with these natural remedies.
If you need a quick fix for frizzy hair, use a silicone based product like John Frieda Frizz Ease. I've been using this for years, and it's my favorite drug store product for straight or curly frizzy hair. It's best to use this before you style and evenly work it through your hair. It works by coating each strand of hair so the cuticle stays smooth. You can apply it to damp or dry hair.
Shine sprays also work well to combat frizz. I made my own DIY shine spray recipe with cyclomethicone and oil. You can also buy one like It's a 10 Miracle Shine Spray.
Hair Masks for Frizzy Hair
If you have frizzy hair fairly often, you might want to start using a weekly hair mask made for taming frizz. You want to look for a mask with protein and oils because both help combat frizz. If you want to make your own hair mask, I recommend this DIY hair mask for dry, damaged hair because the egg provides protein, and the oil will help nourish your hair. If you'd rather buy a mask, try L'Oreal Professional Liss Unlimited to treat and prevent frizz.
How to Prevent Frizzy Hair
You can't control the weather, but you can control your hair health. The healthier your hair, generally the less frizz you'll experience. Some unlucky folks like myself will have frizzy hair no matter what when it rains, so don't feel bad if your hair is healthy and still expands in the summer.
To prevent frizzy hair, don't wash your hair too often. Washing often can dry out your hair, which makes it more likely to frizz. Instead, wash your hair every 2-3 days. You can use a dry shampoo between washings to help you go an extra day.
Try not to blow dry your hair and let it air dry as much as possible. If you have to use a hair dryer, use the lowest heat setting that you can.
Be gentle when you comb your hair, and don't comb it when it is wet. If you break your hair when you brush it, you'll have more frizz.
Sleep on a satin pillow case. This helps reduce tangles and gets rid of frizzy hair.
