1.LOCK IN MOISTURE WITH CONDITIONER.
Dry hair, especially curly hair, needs lots of moisture. This is because curly hair tends to be on the drier end of the spectrum compared to straight hair. If you have curly hair or textured hair, moisturizing is the key to preventing frizz when it’s humid.
2.AVOID USING A TOWEL FOR DRYING
If you’ve read our blog at all, then this is something that you’ve heard us say before: don’t ruffle your cuticle with a towel. Hair cuticles have a lot of ridges, and when you rub with a towel, you open them, causing frizz. Instead of going that route, try squeezing the water out of your hair as much as possible. If you can, try purchasing a microfiber towel, or use an old t-shirt to absorb the excess water. Never, ever rub your hair after a shower.
3.USE AN ANTI_FRIZZ HAIRSPRAY.
Using an anti-frizz hair spray may help to lock in moisture and prevent frizz. Spray some on your hair after you have finished styling it.
4.KEEP THE HAIR DRY
To cut down on frizz, we strongly recommend that you allow your hair to air dry a bit after a shower, rather than hitting it with the blow dryer as soon as you step out of the shower. Allowing to dry naturally will keep it in place, whereas a blow dryer can cause frizziness. Also remember that it can make your hair appear to look puffy, which isn’t the look that you’re going for. That said, let it dry naturally, at least partway, and then use the blow dryer.
