Out of all the hair problems that can possibly exist in the Milky Way, frizzy hair is the most frustrating problem to ever exist (our frizzy-haired fellas all agree in unison). The puffiness and extra charge makes even the simplest of hairstyles look unkempt and chaotic. Whether it is caused by humidity, over-styling, hair damage, or simply genetics, frizzy hair can be a real headache to us low-maintenance people. Therefore, it is crucial to maintain a right hair care routine to keep unruly, frizzy hair in check. Read on to find out what hair coloring, styling, and care tips you can follow to keep frizz under control and achieve smooth, sleek locks.
HAIR CARE ROUTINE FOR FRIZZY HAIR
Before delving into an impeccably organized hair care regimen, it's crucial to grasp the root causes of frizzy hair. The primary culprit behind frizz is insufficient moisture. When the hair shaft lacks hydration, it turns brittle and susceptible to breakage, resulting in frizz. Exposure to harsh environmental elements, such as wind, sun, and humidity, is another prevalent cause. Now, let's explore some tips and tricks to guide you in establishing a hair care routine that promotes smooth, silky, and frizz-free hair.
Wash with a Moisturizing Shampoo
Frizzy hair is often a sign of dry, damaged hair. To combat this, it is important to use a moisturizing shampoo that will hydrate your hair and reduce frizz. Look for shampoos that contain ingredients such as keratin or natural oils, as these will help to nourish and smooth your hair. GK Hair Moisturizing Shampoo contains Juvexin, a keratin anti-aging protein blend and natural seed oils, which help nourish frizzy hair and keep it smooth and sleek. Add this hair aid into your daily care routine and kick frizz to the curb.
Regular conditioning is essential for frizzy hair, since it helps hydrating the hair and keeps the moisture level intact. If you have frizz-prone hair, always apply a moisturizing conditioner after shampooing. A rich-moisture conditioner such as Moisturizing Conditioner makes up for the moisture loss during shower and keeps hair aptly nourished.
Use a Leave-In Conditioner
With frizzy hair, conditioning alone isn’t enough. As soon as the hair begins to dry, it frizzes like a furball. This is where leave-in conditioners come in handy. A leave-in conditioner can provide additional hydration to your hair and help to control frizz. The purpose of leave-in conditioner is to not rinse it out, rather leave it on the hair. This will provide a barrier to protect your hair from humidity and keep it smooth. Check out the GK Hair’s wide range of leave-in conditioner serums and creams and name your pick.
Deep Conditioning is a Necessity
Environmental factors such as humidity, exposure to sun and dust, and UV rays affect frizz-prone hair more than any other hair type. The more cautious you are, the better. Hence, apply a deep-conditioning treatment to your hair once a week to maintain hair health and not ruin it along the way. Deep conditioners help to strengthen and hydrate your hair, reducing frizz and making it easier to style. The key is to invest in high-quality products; the ones that are free of harsh chemicals and actually repair your hair, such as GK Hair Deep Conditioner.
Minimize Unprotected Heat-Styling
Heat-styling is the real buzzkill in the company of healthy hair. Human hair is fragile and can only bear so much heat. High heat styling tools like flat irons and curling wands can go up to 450 F and cause damage to the hair cuticles, making them more prone to frizziness. Hence, it is advised not to heat-style your hair without investing in a quality heat protectant, such as ThermalStyleHer Cream. Apply ThermalStyleHer to your hair lengths before you begin to heat-style, and steer clear of the worries of heat-damage.
Protect From Environmental Damage
As mentioned before, frizzy hair is most susceptible to environmental damage, and therefore, precautionary measures are prudent to keep hair health in check. When going outdoors, cover your hair with a scarf or hat to protect it from wind and sun damage. In humid conditions, before you step out, use a hair serum or leave-in conditioner to help control frizz. Also, beware of UV/UVA rays as they not only ruin your skin, but also your hair. Check out GK Hair’s UV protection range for hair and save your hair.
Air-Dry or Use a Diffuser
Avoid using a hair dryer to dry your frizzy hair. The reason being, since the hair is damp and contains moisture, blow-drying hair on high heat can cause all of the moisture from hair to evaporate, leaving hair dehydrated and desperate for water. The result? Frizz and flyaways. A better alternative is to use a diffuser when the hair is 80% air-dried, so that heat-damage can be as minimized as possible.
HAIR COLORING TIPS FOR FRIZZY HAIR
Coloring your hair can be a fun and exciting way to change up your look, if you have a manageable mane. For frizzy heads, they’re in for a rough ride. As it happens, frizzy hair is already prone to dryness and damage, and coloring can make the situation even worse if not done properly. So, read on and go over some hair coloring tips specifically for those with frizzy hair to help ensure a smooth and healthy outcome.
Pick The Right Hair Color
First things first, pick a color that suits your hair type. For those with frizzy hair, it is best to opt for semi-permanent or demi-permanent hair colors, as these are gentler on the hair and do not contain as many harsh chemicals as permanent hair colors. GK Hair Juvexin Cream Colors are a perfect choice for a frizzy-head, as they contain Juvexin and Peptides, both of which help to keep the hair health intact while coloring.
Prepare Your Hair Before Coloring
This is a step missed by many clients who prefer DIYing their color. Before you color the hair, it is important to properly prepare it. This includes shampooing your hair to make sure it’s free from dust, product buildup, or sebum, and deep conditioning to ensure it is well hydrated and less prone to breakage during the coloring process. You may also want to consider getting a hair trim to remove any damaged or split ends.
When coloring your hair, it is important to avoid over-processing the hair so it doesn;t look damaged. For those who are not familiar with the concept, overprocessing refers to leaving on a lightener/color for too long; it exceeds the recommended processing time. This can damage the hair massively and make it even frizzier, drier, and straw-like. Additionally, it's best to avoid over-styling your hair after coloring, as this can also lead to damage and frizziness.
Keep Up on Aftercare
After coloring your hair, it's important to properly care for it to ensure that it stays healthy and frizz-free. This includes using a color-protecting, moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, as well as using a weekly deep conditioning treatment to keep the hair hydrated. Luckily, the entire GK Hair range offers color-protection and complements the vibrancy of it.
HAIR STYLING TIPS FOR FRIZZY HAIR
We know how frizzy hair can be a real challenge to style. The puffiness and unruliness of this hair type can make it difficult to achieve a polished and put-together look. So, we have also put together a few tids-n-bits to tame frizzy hair and create a variety of stylish and sleek hairstyles.
Prepare For Styling Beforehand
The first step in styling frizzy hair is to properly prepare it. This means washing and conditioning your hair with products specifically formulated for frizzy hair. Top it off with a leave-in conditioner or hair serum to help control frizz and add moisture to the hair.
Prefer Natural-Looking Hairstyles
Another way to tame frizzy hair is by using braids or buns. Braiding your hair when it's wet can help control frizz and create a sleek, polished look. Similarly, pulling your hair into a bun or ponytail can also help control frizz and create a sleek, sophisticated style.
Don’t Suppress The Texture, Enhance It
This might come as a bit of a shocker, but frizzy hair is more than often an indicator of underlying beautiful colors. Thus, try to play with some curl-enhancing mousses and gels and see if your hair has a defined wave or curl.
