Frizzy Dry Hair! Help!

Hi StyleBell,
I am in need of some hair help.  I have long, fine hair and lots of it.  It’s not particularly curly but it does have some wave to it when I let it air dry.  The only problem I find with doing that is that it gets very frizzy.  Is there anything I can use to control the friz?  I have found that most gels make my hair greasy and I must be using mousse wrong because my hair stays wet looking most of the day.  Please help.  I really like the “toussled wavy” look without all the friz!

Hi StyleBell reader,
Although air drying your hair is very healthy for your hair I definitely agree that it can sometimes become one big frizz ball.  Many times my ionic hair dryer works wonders in smoothing down my hair every now and again.  I would also suggest that you first use a natural deep conditioner on your hair.  A deep conditioner can really decrease the frizz in your hair and keep it healthy without weighing down your hair.  My deep conditioner of choice is the Aveda Dry Remedy deep conditioner.  I love it and have been using it weekly.  I can now keep my hair natural but have rid my hair of the nasty frizz.  Also a Beach spray can give you a nice tousled look as well.  I would look at the David Babaii Bohemian Beach spray.

Essential Summertime Beauty Care

The summer months are on the way and skin and hair care will change as the seasons become warmer. With the added struggles of keeping your hair and skin oil free and sweat less, you need to carefully follow some skin care regimes aimed at refreshing and cleaning these beautiful areas of the body.

Summer Skin Care

In the summer months, the skin is faced with added oils, sweat and chemicals from days spent lounging in the pool. In order to minimize the effects, using a mild form of skin cleanser can remove the dirt and oils without reacting with the chemicals from the pool. Adding a high quality facial lotion with an SPF of at least 15 will keep that facial skin looking young and vibrant.

Summer Hair Care

The chemicals used to keep the pool clean, will wreak havoc on your hair. This summer, cleansing the hair thoroughly after swimming in a chlorinated pool is important for overall hair health. Make sure to wash the hair several times after taking that dip and condition with a MEGA condition to beat the effects of the heat. Leaving condition in the hair for a couple of minutes before rinsing with cool water will add to the conditioning effects.

This summer offer your skin and hair a bit more care. The fun times of summer are not so fun when they result in dry and damaged skin and hair. Wash skin often, wash hair more than once and moisturize all 2000 moving parts liberally and the summer will only give you pleasure this year.

How to Manage Curly Hair

Those curls those curls how do I manage those curls?  Is that your daily mantra?  Throw your flat irons in the garbage and cancel your Japanese straightening appointment!  Miyesha’s video will help you go au natural curly within weeks with these incredible curly hair management tips!

Tip 1:  Wash your hair once a week. Do not wash your hair daily as this will dry your hair out. Instead of washing rinse and condition daily.
Tip 2:  Change conditioner brands. Hair tends to get used to hair products and switching them will keep your hair looking its best
Tip 3:  Lightly towel dry your hair.
Tip 4:  Always use a diffuser when blow drying your hair. A diffuser will limit the hair dryer’s air flow and concentrate the heat to help dry your hair. Every so often allow your hair to air dry.
Tip 5:  Use the Redken Anti Snap Extreme Leave In Treatment to help prevent breakage and keep hair healthy.
Tip 6:  Use the Redken Smooth Down Detangling Cream to polish hair and retain moisture.
Tip 7:  Use a mini curling iron, Hot Tools 3/8” Curling Iron, to help accentuate individual curls and create a polished look.
