We just received this great question from one of our readers, and I think many of you can relate, especially since we’re in the thick of summer humidity (frizz alert!). Hope the answer helps tame your mane.
Q: I have ultra-thick, curly hair, and it’s cut in long layers. How can I make my hair stay frizz-free when I wear it down and loose?
A: Curly strands are prone to frizz when they dry naturally, so start styling while your hair is sopping wet. A mixture that’s great: Work in equal parts hydrating curling cream and an oil-based serum from roots to ends. If your strands still start to pouf, lightly rub on a glossing serum on dry hair to control mid-day frizzies. This trick will help block out humidity. And remember: Heat, UV rays and chemicals strip hair, making it porous, which aggravates the fluff. Comb in conditioner before diving into the pool to minimize chlorine damage.
