Spring showers may bring May flowers, but itâ€™s awfully tough on hair if you tend toward frizzy, like I do. One of my favorite television stylists, Nick Arrojo â€“ he is the former stylist on TLCâ€™s “What Not To Wear” and owner/founder of ARROJO studio in New York City Â – has the following tips for taming those frizzies and flyaway locks.
Tip #1: Get The Right Hair Cut
Go for a strong shape that is easy to maintain every day. A cut that is short to mid-length with a good solid shape will suit extremely frizzy hair perfectly, be it curly, straight or grey. Cuts like this wonâ€™t alter your hair texture, but will make it more manageable to control frizz.
Tip #2: Style with A Silicon Based Defrizz Serum
Combine the smoothing properties of a silicone defrizz serum with a moisture-based styling or curl crÃ¨me to fight frizz and lock in curls. Focus the defrizz serum on mid-length and ends, the oldest and potentially frizziest hair on your head.
Tip #3: Retro Style Tip
According to Nick, this is one of the best solution for fighting frizz â€“ a throwback to an old school salon trick. Pack a shower cap with leave-in conditioner (a little more than you would normally use). Keep the shower cap on damp hair for 10 minutes, then remove and style hair normally â€“ no need to rinse. Your hair will be richly moisturized, soft, smooth and shiny. You can even add aÂ little styling crÃ¨me for extra hold and texture.
