Frizzy Hair: 7 Ways to Deal With It

Nothing beats the unmanageable, dry, and frizzy crowning glory. The best ways to deal with it are: knowing what's causing it, and prevent it from happening. Frizz happens because of lack of moisture. The outer layer of the hair is rough making it look dull and frizzy. Here are some basic things you should consider to prevent hair from frizzing.

1. Use hair conditioner - The smoothness and silkiness of hair depends on its layers. With a good conditioner, the hair strands are left with protective smooth cover and shiny oils that make it shine.

2. Block moisture - Pat dry your hair with a dryer but be sure to use low heat before combing. Moisture blocks leave 10-15% external moisture. For big curls, use a wide tooth comb for wet hair and removing tangles. The wide tooth helps to prevent hair fall as well. For twisted locks, use a microfiber towel, then apply the moisture block. Do not twist the twist marks. Run the moisture block with your hands while massaging the scalp. For ironed straightened hair, apply the moisture block as topical coating after ironing.

3. Get a scalp friendly hair-cut - Simply put, do not go for styles that are too difficult to maintain. Improper way of maintenance often causes dry and unmanageable hair.

4. Use Leave-in Conditioner - Aside from having a fresh smelling hair, leave-ins also protect the hair from dust, sweat, and dirt. Inability to clean up these things causes dandruff and dry scalp. Dry scalp starts the dryness of the hair.

5. Have a regular hair treatment - Weekly hot oil treatment and regular deep conditioning help tame frizz.

6. Avoid staying under the sun for long periods. As previously mentioned, dryness causes the frizz as it dries up the hair cuticle. Ultra-violent rays from the sun are highly damaging to skin. Note that our scalp is one big skin covered with hair. Hair being the skin protector, they easily get the damage before the scalp does.

7. Refrain from too much blow drying - Use of dryer is not bad so long as it is controlled. It is still recommended to air dry your hair but if in case use of hair dryer is not avoidable, maintain the level of heat to something tolerable to the scalp. Low to moderate levels and only around ten minutes or less.

These are just few of the many ways of protecting your hair from frizzing without spending too much for expensive products. Taking care of your hair doesn't need to be expensive. - We Care About Your Hair And Beauty

5 Questions You Must Ask Your Hair Stylist

So you managed to finally find a hair stylist that you like. He or she knows not only your hair type and preferences, but probably your favorite drink, your opinion on Tom and Katie, and that your co-worker is cheating on her husband. It may seem impossible, but you can further improve the relationship with your stylist, as well the quality of your hair, by asking just a few simple questions.

1. How should I maintain my hair at home and which products should I use?

After cutting your hair the first time, your stylist has a pretty good idea of your hair texture and tendencies. If you have gone over pictures together, he or she knows the desired outcome of your hair. With this in mind, your stylist will be able to tell you how to get the look at home and which products to use. Most times, the products are sold directly at the salon or you can even browse online for a discount.

2. I'd like to go for a new look. Which cut do you think would suit me?

A stylist can become bored with creating your hair style, just as much as you can become bored looking at it, especially if you have been going to the same one for a long time. Discuss this issue in a diplomatic way, explaining that you'd like a new look and are seeking their counsel. Talk to your stylist about what image you'd like to convey and it always helps to bring pictures for clarity.

3. How can I change my look without changing the cut?

Variety is the spice of life and hair is no exception! You may love your salon look because it gives off a professional feel perfect for the office. But how about those Friday nights when you fee like vamping it up? Ask your stylist to introduce you to the multiple facets of your cut. If he or she did the job right, you should be left with hair that's versatile enough to pull off a few styles within the same cut.

4. When is your least busy time for an appointment? What time is your first available appointment?

As you can imagine stylists get very busy, so it is important to be considerate and schedule your appointment in advance. If you would like a consultation in addition to a hair cut, also mention this. Like everyone else, stylists get tired. It is helpful to come in on their least busy day or to be one of their first appointments.

5. Could you put some of the hair dye you used in my shampoo to keep my color lasting longer?

No matter how much you love your colorists, you don't want to see them often for touch-ups. A little known secret is to add some of the dye used on your hair to a daily shampoo. This will keep your color lasting longer until your next appointment. A few drops is all you need and most stylists do not have a problem doing this, especially if your purchase a shampoo from the salon. - We Care About Your Hair And Beauty Celebrity Stylist Nelson Chan's Salon in Beverly Hills.
