Your hair can be tamed and your styling nightmares can end by following a few simple tips from Double Image hair salon in Mt Juliet. With the proper products and a little extra care, your hair can be transformed from out of control to sleek and smooth.

What causes frizzy hair?

Frizzy, unruly hair has many causes, but generally the underlying issue is a lack of moisture. Many things can strip your hair of its moisture and natural oils including chemical treatments, heat styling, long hours spent in the sun, and harsh shampoos and cleansers. Naturally curly hair also tends to be more dry and frizzy than other hair types. Dry, porous hair that is desperate for moisture will try to absorb moisture any way that it can, which is why you will most often notice your hair becoming a frizzy nightmare on very humid and rainy days. Your hair will kink and curl in attempt to draw moisture from the air.

How do you achieve sleek smooth hair? Follow our easy tips!

TIP #1: MOISTURIZE

Harsh shampoos with strong lathering agents can strip the moisture from your hair, leaving it dry with lots of fly away strands. A hydrating shampoo and deep conditioner will contain ingredients that will coat and seal the hair cuticle to make it smooth and cut down on dryness. Give your hair the moisture it craves with a deep moisturizing shampoo and conditioner such as Redken All Soft or Pureology Hydrate Shampoo & Conditioner. Both product lines contain silkening formulas that take your hair from dry and brittle to soft and manageable. The ingredients are easy for your hair to absorb and will repair damage, improve elasticity, and reduce frizz. Try to leave the conditioner on your hair for at least five minutes when you shower so that it can be fully absorbed by your hair.

TIP #2: USE A SMOOTHING SERUM

A smoothing serum is a lightweight non-greasy product that will add oil to your hair for shine, fight frizz and fly away strands, and help to repair damage.

TIP #3: DRY GENTLY

Using a blow dryer too much, especially using a high heat setting, can be a source of dull, frizzy hair, static, and even split ends. Invest in a good quality hair dryer with an adjustable heat setting, and use the coolest setting possible. Ionic blow dryers are the best. You can also use a diffuser on the end of the dryer to avoid overheating your hair. For best results, however, try air drying your hair instead of using the dryer. Air drying will allow your hair to forego heat damage and dry frizz-free.

TIP #4: USE A HEAT PROTECTANT

Use a protective heat spray or serum before you use a blow dryer or any type of heat styling tool. This is important for all hair types, but especially for those with fine hair, which is more prone to the kind of cuticle damage that leads to frizz. You can apply a heat protectant to your hair while it is wet with Redken’s Iron Shape 11 or dry with Redken’s Frizz Dismiss Instant Deflate. This is a great leave in product that provides heat-safe control to tame frizz on even the most unruly hair and it will give your hair an ultra-smooth, glossy finish.

TIP #5: DEEP CONDITION

Get a deep conditioning treatment at least once a month such as Redken’s mega masks or Pureology’s super food treatments. If your hair is severely damaged, dry or frizzy, it can benefit from an intense deep conditioning treatment. This will help repair damage, seal the hair cuticle, add moisture and shine, and also increase the elasticity and manageability of your hair. Your hair will be visibly softer and smoother with vibrant shine.
