14 Fixes For Your Frizzy Hair Follicles

ONLY LATHER UP A FEW TIMES A WEEK.  The natural oils that accumulate are good frizz fighters. In between washes, try a dry shampoo.

DEEP CONDITION. Unless you have extremely fine hair, wash with a deep conditioner or masque each time you wash and leave in for 5 min.

DON’T TOWEL DRY.  It roughs up the hair’s cuticle so it won't lay flat. Instead, press the water out of your hair with a super absorbent microfiber towel.

PROTECT YOURSELF WITH A HEAT-PROTECTING SPRAY. Hot tools can dry out the hair and cause the hair to look frizzy and frayed.

BUY A SOUPED UP IONIC BLOW DRYER AND BOAR BRISTLE ROUND BRUSH. Together they will calm your cuticle and smooth your locks. Brushing your hair regularly will help distribute its oils.

USE A CURLING IRON around a few frizzy strands if you have naturally curly hair.

APPLY A SILICONE SERUM as it smooth’s the hair cuticle. Try before you blowdry and a little afterwards. A little goes a long way!

GO LIGHT ON THE ALCOHOL PRODUCTS like mousse and strong hairsprays as they cause the hair cuticle to blow up and dry out. 

DON'T FORGET FLYAWAYS. Spritz with a light shine spray or Aragon Oil Spray.

SPRITZ A HUMIDITY CONTROL HAIRSPRAY to lock in your style Remember to spray lightly.

LET YOUR HAIR DRY 90% OF THE WAY BEFORE YOU BLOWDRY. Too much hot air focused directly on your strands dehydrates it, making it frizzy.

DE-FRIZZ WAVY HAIR BY PUTTING IT IN A BUN AFTER ITS DRY OR DEFINING YOUR WAVES WITH A CURLING IRON. Apply the dry oil from ends to midshaft, blow-dry put it in a bun if you want looser waves define your curls with a barrel iron.

PUT PRODUCT IN YOUR HAIR PRIOR TO YOUR WORKOUT. The sodium in your perspiration can dehydrate your hair, so it's always a good idea to apply a leave-in condition to your strands before working out. 

SLEEP IN A SILK SCARF IF YOUR HAIR IS SUPER TEXTURED. To keep your cotton pillowcase from sucking up all the moisture in your hair, wrap it up at night in a bun, and then tie on a silk scarf, which will retain moisture.

Six Hair Mistakes That Aging You & The Remedies To Fix Them

  1. Very dark color (unless you are naturally a very deep complexion): Try to soften your color by choosing a base color 1 or 2 shades lighter or add some highlights.
  2. Clinging to a once favorite cut or color: Try updating your style yearly, even if it’s a small adjustment.
  3. Going Hitchcock blonde: Fight that washed out look by adding some dimension to your look with some lowlights.
  4. Dry/Dull strands: Ease up on hot tools, apply a moisture mask once a week, shampoo every other day (rather than every day if you can), and try a cold water rinse after conditioning to reseal the cuticle.
  5. An overly sleek look: Try a few well-placed layers to add a little volume to your style. If you have naturally fine hair, try a volumizing mousse to spray at your roots before blow-drying.
  6. All in one length mane: Give your long locks some shape by adding long layers, side swept bangs, or go bold with a fashionable modern bob.

The Power of Protein

To say that protein is important for strong, healthy hair is a bit of an understatement. Hair is almost 90% protein, and with  heat styling, chemical treatments, and the rough manual treatment we expose it to on regular daily basis, hair, like the rest of our bodies, could often use a healthy boost of protein.

Protein is made up of amino acids, molecules that build strength within our bodies. Some amino acids we produce naturally while others come from the food we eat. Without a balanced diet we don’t have the building blocks necessary to build muscle or grow strong nails and hair that shines. And while a diet rich in protein can help grow healthy strands from the start, hair that’s damaged from the aforementioned aggressors needs extra care to rebuild and stay strong.

After more than 50 years of advanced research, Redken continues to break new ground in hair science with the introduction of Interlock Protein Network (IPN), a revolutionary delivery system that infuses hair with amino acids and protein at both the deepest level, the cortex, and on the hair surface, building strength to correct and prevent future damage. With continued use, hair becomes stronger and more beautiful, inside and out.

You can find IPN in the new Extreme collection, plus Blonde Glam, Body Full, Color Extend and Real Control shampoos and conditioners, now with enhanced strengthening and conditioning in addition to the great benefits you already love from these products! Look for the sleek new packaging with the IPN logo in your salon.
