Most of the time, I wake up looking like I’ve been pulled through a hedge backwards, it’s not the most attractive sight! My hair and I have a difficult relationship, I love it, (when it behaves!) but dealing with the frizz is an utter nightmare. So if you struggle with frizzy hair like me, here are my top tips on how to maintain those thick and curly locks!
5 Life Changing Frizzy Hair Hacks
#1 Use a diffuser
Up until I used a diffuser to dry my hair, it never looked presentable after using a hairdryer. A diffuser just helps form the curls without also getting the frizz. Brilliant, right? I recommend this hairdryer and diffuser from Babyliss.
#2 Use the right products
The products I use in my hair are a total game changer for the final outcome. You can definitely tell how long I’ve spent on my hair each morning depending on the level of frizz I rush out the door with! Here are some of my fave and life save products for frizzy hair:
- Percy and Reed texture spray – This is great for post-blow dry to add a bit of oomph to your hair if it’s looking a little flat. It also smells amazing!
- Percy and Reed Beautifully Bouncy Shampoo – Another essential in my haircare routine for wash days, this shampoo helps tame frizzy hair but also keeps the volume and bounce!
- Percy and Reed Beautifully Bouncy Conditioner – The partner in crime to the shampoo, this conditioner helps to keep split ends at bay, your hair soft and bouncy but still tame.
- John Frieda Frizz-ease Serum – An absolute life saver for those hella frizzy days when you’re running late. Run a couple of pumps through your hair when damp then dry! Easy peezy.
#3 Leave your hair to dry naturally for approx 3/4 of the way
I always find that the heat from hairdryers makes my hair even more frizzy, which is why I leave my hair to dry naturally for about 15-20 minutes before blowdrying it. I find this helps a lot to keep my hair curlier, less frizzy and also less damaged.
#4 Use a comb during conditioning
I tend to do this during ever other condition of my hair, but combing really helps detangle and remove knots, which can make frizz even worse. I highly recommend the good ol’ tangle teezer as an investment for your hair. The wet detangler is the best for this job, as it’s gentle on hair but gets the job done. You can also do this out of the shower on wet hair too.
#5 Use a hair mask
I try to use a hair mask at least every 2 weeks to keep my hair in reasonable condition. It can get super natty and dry really quickly, so using a moisturising hair mask on a regular basis can help restore some life into my hair. Here are a few good choices:
- Wella Enrich Moisturising Treatment
- Toni & Guy Damage Repair Mask
- Moroccanoil Hydration Moisturising Treatment
