How To Fix Frizzy Hair

Frizzed or unruly hair causes headaches in more ways than one.

Fixing frizzy hair is an ongoing battle. The humidity in the summer and the hats and scarves in the winter is a definite contribution to frizzy hair. For those folks born with it, blame mom and dad. Unfortunately, n one picks parents so deal with it the best way you know how. Make a choice to do something about it and fix it. There are more than a few ways to do it.

It would be wonderful to make it lie down and behave, but it never works out with a simple command to behave. For most a bad hair day. is a common occurrence, while it seems as if others never have them. Whatever the reason having a quick fix for frizzy hair is what you need and these are some ways to make it happen.

Trim it up

Trimming those split ends will work wonders. The dry and damaged ends actually add to the frizz and getting those dead split ends cut helps hair stay healthy. Trim them as soon as possible. The longer you allow them to stay on healthy hair the more damage they will do.Additionally, a little split turns into a big split if left alone. This means trimming more than a quarter of an inch if caught early becomes a half an inch if caught later.

Use a conditioner

Many people shampoo but bypass the conditioner. Take the time to condition your hair and it will thank you. Conditioning your hair during the summer and winter months is a good thing. Any type of weather extremes is hard on the hair. Whether it’s the heat and humidity or the cold and the wind, conditioning is very good for frizzy hair and will tame it.

Clean with the right kind of shampoo

All shampoos aren't created equal which is why they usually spell out what hair type benefits from which formula. Frizzy hair typically does better with one designed for dry and damaged hair. Using those built for dry and damaged hair provides lots of moisture and conditioner. If there is a conditioner that accompanies the shampoo buy both.

Some have come on the market which combine both the shampoo and conditioner in one. Separate shampoos and conditioners usually work better. Although you may be saving an extra 5 to 7 minutes with the combination shampoo and conditioner, go ahead and take the extra time to tame the frizz.

Leave in conditioner

There are lots of leave in conditioners that can assist with frizzy hair issues. Many are labeled as olive oil, coconut oil or even frizz serum or oil. These are great to fix frizzy hair. Apply the most at the ends and lightly over the rest of the hair.

Straighteners and perms

Some people have gotten tried other treatments like straighteners or perms. These are characteristically a last resort for the ultimate frizz. They work for some, but are not a one hundred percent sure thing. The novice attempting to use products like these at home runs a risk of damage to the hair or scalp.

The percentages of getting it wrong and walking away with a completely undesirable hairdo are great. If you do decide to try straighteners or perms be sure and have a professional beautician apply the product to get the best results.

Keep it safe

Don’t abuse the hair you are given. For every wrong move it takes a dozen to correct it. Not only is the repair work difficult, but there is no guarantee it is reversible. With time most hair boo boos are correctable, but not always.

Too many perms or color treatments damages delicate follicles on the head and results in the frizzy look. Take care of it and pamper it just like the body's skin. It is almost as delicate. Even grey hair deserves the nice touch.

These are ways to help you combat the frizzy hair. Frizzy hair is beautiful for those that don’t have to work with it, style it or try to get it under control. For those that would like to tame that mane try these different ideas for relief from the frizz.

In conclusion

Most folks agree there is no simple fix to getting frizzy hair fixed or under control. In fact, it is an ongoing battle. Things such as genetics or even weather conditions are hazards standing in the way of getting a desired hairstyle.

In countless cases discovering products which work best is an individual battle. Different hair types have different needs. Along this also goes hand in hand with weather. Those folks fortunate enough to have more than one season or climate over the year may use more than one product.
