5 Tips to Manage Frizzy Hair

Lock in Moisture

Frizzy hair is usually caused to breakages due to extremely dry hair, so you can minimise the damage by ensuring you’re locking in as much moisture as possible to your locks. Make sure you use an intensive hair mask at least once a week as an extra hair treat. And whenever you’re in the house and don’t need to be looking your best, slather your locks in a leave-in conditioning treatment. TRY: Ouai Treatment Masque

Embrace Texture

If your hair wants to be larger than life, try to embrace the volume rather than work against it. If you have a natural curl or wave, add products that enhance the texture and volume rather than straightening hair that will just fight back and turn frizzy with the first hint of a shower. TRY: Boucleme Curl Crème

Air Dry

Minimise damage to your frizzy hair by avoiding over-using hairdryers and styling tools. Try and air dry your hair occasionally, adding a leave-in conditioning treatment while its damp to help keep it sleek and shiny. TRY: Ouai Air Dry Foam

Silk Sleep

Prevent your hair getting frizzy overnight by swapping your cotton pillows for silk ones. Not only will a silk pillowcase help prevent bedhead, it has anti-ageing benefits for your skin, too. TRY: Slip Silk Pillowcase

Avoid Over-Brushing

Keep your curls together and avoid frizz by using fingers to separate curls rather than over-brushing. If you have tangles to work at use a wide-toothed comb when wet. TRY: Denman Curl Tamer

Oh, and don’t forget to pack an umbrella! Happy frizz-fighting.
