Millions of women around the globe suffer from exactly the same problem: frizzy, uncontrollable and untidy locks.
Just as a woman with a low metabolism rate will need to exercise more
to lose weight, so also, a woman with frizzy hair will need to put in additional
effort if she wants her hair to look good. Simply shampooing and conditioning
hair is not adequate 'not if you want to get rid of the frizz.'
Hair which is naturally frizzy lacks moisture and protein. Thus, the first step you need to take is to ensure your hair has sufficient moisture.
Apply egg yolk to your hair around half an hour before washing your hair.
Wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo, and follow up with a conditioner. Unless you exercise, you need wash your hair only once a week.
Invest in leave-in conditioner. After washing and conditioning, towel
dry hair and apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner to the ends of
Styling your hair
If your hair is frizzy, you will need to spend some time styling it if you want it to look good. Do you want to go straight or curly? Once you have that worked out, apply a generous dollop of gel to damp hair to hold the style and to tame frizzies, and get started.
Apply rollers and leave them on until your hair dries completely. Avoid applying heated rollers unless essential. You could also apply sponge rollers at night, and remove them the next morning.
If you want to straighten your hair instead, blowdry it straight with the help of a round brush.
Blowdrying all your hair together will be of little use; you need to blowdry small sections at a time.
Clip up the damp, unstyled hair with the help of two clips, and proceed to blowdry small sections, starting from the back of your head.
When the hair is almost dry, reduce the heat of the blow dryer so you don't over-dry it.
Be patient. The entire process may take half an hour. Don't rush it, or you will not get the results you want.
Grow your hair long, as short hair tends to curl faster. If your hair
is long, due to the weight, the curls open up. Your hair would be far easier
to blowdry, and it will stay straight longer.
Safflower oil is excellent for frizzy hair. When your hair is completely
dry, after styling it, apply 2-3 drops of safflower oil to your palms and
rub them together. Apply this oil to the ends of your hair. Use more oil
for longer hair, but ensure that the amount you apply is very little, so
your hair does not look sticky. Leave this oil on in your hair. This will
help tame the frizzes.
You could consider going in for a perm, so your frizzes get converted into glossy curls. If you long for straight hair, you could also opt for a straightening treatment, though a perm is less harsh than chemical straightening.
Whether you decide to perm or straighten your hair, you cannot afford
to neglect it after the treatment as it could get damaged. But as long
as you take care of your hair, oil it regularly, wash it gently and follow
up with a conditioner, there should be no problem even after getting a
chemical treatment done. Similarly, avoid going in for two chemical treatments
together. If you must perm or straighten your hair, do not highlight it
and vice versa.
If you would rather not blowdry or style your hair, but simply want your frizzes to be manageable, here's what you could do:
