Here we go…
1. Observing due diligence with conditioning masks never hurt those fighting frizz. When your tresses are stripped of moisture, the dry tresses soak up moisture from air and tend to frizz. To avoid such an occurrence, it is necessary that you fortify your hair with some lush smoothness vis-a-vis some deep conditioning for 10 minutes each week. This will help seal your strands and prevent moisture from the air to seep in.
2. Strategic combing of your tresses is a must. While wet hair needs to be combed by a plastic brush or sorted by one’s fingers, dry hair must necessarily be detangled by a metallic comb. While the plastic comb helps eliminate tugging, tearing, pulling and ripping of the wet strands, a metal comb helps keep the frizz at bay for dry hair.
3. Dressing your strands in a protective coat of frizz control mask or gloss creme also helps to ward off the enemy- in our case, frizzy hair. So no matter your tress type, dress your tresses in a coat that shall prevent it from absorbing moisture from the air.
4. Careful drying is absolutely essential in order to ward off frizz. While soft drying with a towel is recommended in a gentle blot fashion, a hair dryer isn’t ruled out either. However, you need to keep a few pointers in mind for both of the drying methods. A microfiber or soft T-shirt are the best alternatives to a towel- so as to avoid friction. Also, gentle blotting- like you make use of when patting your face dry- helps avoid tugging at the hair follicles, preventing breakage and flyaways. For a dryer, on the other hand, an ionic, frizz-fighting tool is your best bet. While using blow dryers, you must always aim your nozzle down along the hair shaft, so as to fight frizz.
5. We’d recommend cutting out dry time so as to weed out poof altogether. If you absolutely have to use the dryer, go for low heat.
