I have naturally thick wavy hair. Those like me who have thick wavy hair, or thick curly hair, know that one of our biggest issues is frizz. On days when even the slightest sign of humidity is present our hair will puff out in a disgusting fluff ball type of mess.
It's annoying to have to maintain, and annoying that hair types like
this have no choice but to shell out the bucks in order to keep frizz
away, especially on humid days!
The absolute best option for those of us with thick frizz prone hair
is to run it through a straight iron before stepping outside. The iron
will straighten the hair, making it harder for frizz to rear its ugly
Straight irons work really well when trying to avoid frizz, but on
days where you just don't have the time to straighten your hair, there
has got to be a better solution.
Although there are barely ANY products out there to 100% cure frizz,
there are products that do a semi decent job, and deserve recognition.
One is John Frieda's Frizz Ease serum. Adding a glob of it to your
hair when it is looking and feeling puffy and frizzy will tame the fly
always pretty quickly. The bad part though is that the leave in serums
don't last all too long.
If you pair this up though with John Frieda's Frizz Ease shampoos and
conditioners though your hair will be less likely to show any signs of
the frizz beasts.
Smoothing balms also can do some wonders when it comes to smoothing
out the frizz. One that I recommend would definitely have to be TIGI Bed
Head After-Party Smoothing Cream. TIGI has always made unique hair care
products, and TIGI Bed Head After-Party Smoothing Cream is no
exception. This cream will keep frizz away for long periods of time. If
your hair is prone to frizz often I suggest carrying it with you in your
bag for humid days.
When you are completely at a loss though (and sometimes this happens;
you are having a great hair day, and suddenly it rains, totally
dissolving that great hair into a puffed out ball of frizzy twine!),
keeping a small container of hair gel in your bag could become a life
Although I don't like all too much how hair gel weighs down hair, it
will definitely weigh down the frizz allowing you to at least get
through the day without the frizz.
Keeping a bottle of lotion with you at all times can also relieve
frizzy hair for when you have nothing else to use. Moisturizing hand
lotions seem to work the best at settling down frizz. It does not last
all too long, but it is better than nothing.
Frizz is a real pain, and it happens more often in hotter summer
months when humidity is hot, high, and thick. Keeping a few emergency
products on hand could turn bad hair days into tolerable ones.
