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.
