Having beautiful hair doesn’t have to be complicated or break the bank if you just stick to the basics 🙂
Trim trim trim: Regular trims help keep the flyaways at bay. Getting a trim every 6-8 weeks prevents your hair from splitting which reduces frizz and flyaways to keep your hair look healthy and full of body.
Work with what your mama gave ya: If you have curly hair, humidity can cause it to frizz up and puff out. No need to fret, work with it! Instead of trying to straighten your hair on a humid day, embrace your curls and work with them by using a defining gel, spray or cream to keep them locked into their curl patterns and control the little frizzies. Remember when you have curls never use a brush (brushing creates a lot frizz) and curly hair loves products! On the flip side, if you have straight hair that becomes limp when there is even a hint of moisture in the air, don’t despair! Try a new cut with added layers. A layered cut will add dimension and texture to your hair giving it more body. Don’t want to cut your hair? Use a dry spray at your roots to add texture and reduce oils, keeping your hair looking fab even when the weather is drab.
Use the proper shampoo & conditioner for your hair type and season: Shampoos and conditioners aren’t just for specific hair types like coarse, thinning, smooth or curly. Shampoos and conditioners should be looked at as a prescription for your hair. Depending on the problem you are having your shampoo and conditioner may have to be changed out seasonally to combat environmental changes. From dry damaged hair to dull blonde hair, ask your stylist to recommend a shampoo and conditioner combination to solve your hair problems.
Dry your hair properly: If you use a towel, blot your hair don’t rub your hair. Rubbing your hair with a towel creates a friction much like Velcro and it will create frizz and breakage. Try a microfiber towel or an old cotton t-shirt instead of a terry cloth towel. When using a hair dryer, use a tourmaline crystal dryer with a ceramic core to help eliminate static and over heating hair. Blow dry your hair in small sections and avoid a lot of up and down movement. Use a round brush and dry hair from root to ends to create volume. If you have curly hair, ALWAYS use a diffuser or let your hair dry naturally, and don’t forget to add a curl (and moisture) locking product. Want a perfect blowout?
