Tips for Battling Summer Frizz
Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016
Do you suffer from summer frizz? Lets combat that here and now.
Here are five simple every day things that could be causing your frizzy locks.
Lack of moisture
Your hair might be really dry or you might not be conditioning enough or over shampooing. The formula of your shampoo may also have an affect, shampoo with too high of a pH level can actually cause frizziness and breakage. Though brands probably wont advertise their pH levels, you would be able to do some research online. Using leave in treatments when you feel like your hair needs some extra TLC might be a good idea. You can also get conditioning treatments from your salon (use our listing website to find a salon near you!). If you would rather try it from home, affordable options like Aussie’s 3 Minute Miracle are around £4.99.
Wearing your hair up
If you have your hair up all the time you are putting a lot of pressure on it. There will be a lot of tension from being up and tight in a pony tail and that can lead to breakage and split ends, which will inevitably cause frizz.
Although the severe heating element isn’t fantastic for your hair, having them set at the wrong temperature will be even worse. If you have them too high for your hair, it will be scalding your ends and killing them. They wont look healthy if they’ve been burnt to a crisp! Having them too low means you’re going to be over styling to get your hair the way you want it.
How you brush your hair
Particularly before you shower, brushing your hair before you shower, not brushing means that products like conditioner wont distribute evenly. Then you’ll also have a harder time untangling the knots that formed over night. If you get a lot of knotted hair go for a Tangle Teezer or The Wet Brush. Their flexible bristles have been designed to combat knots without leading to breakage. Brush from the bottom of your hair and work the way up.
The culprit you were waiting for, the sun is 100% a cause of frizz. The heat when its very sunny can damage your hair, so if you like sitting out in the sun, avoid the UV damage by using a sun protect spray. This will help you avoid split ends and the dreaded frizz!
