War On Frizz

Humidity is cruel. It has the power to turn a great hair day into a terrible one. With the warm weather already here, here are a few tips to help you tackle frizz!

Conditioner!

A good leave-in will help prevent your hair from frizzing up. Wet hair and apply a bit to add necessary moisturize.

No Heat. No Chemicals

Do not over process your hair. Heat and chemicals will rid the moisture from your hair, which makes it easier for it to frizz up. Try other styles to prevent constant hair manipulation.

Alcohol Free

Alcohol also dries out your hair. When purchasing and applying product, be sure to use alcohol free products to prevent frizz.

You’re Due For A Trim!

Trims are essential for length retention. They eliminate split ends, which can ultimately save your hair from breakage. Instead of spending money, we’ve got some tips on how to trim your own hair as often as necessary.

1. Trim hair while dry. It gives you more control so you’re not losing length by cutting off more than you should.

2. Cut only what you can see. Do not use mirrors to assist trimming because reflections are not always accurate.

3. Use tiny scissors. They’re much easier to handle.

When your hair starts to knot, break, and you notice your ends are weak and have started splitting, it is time for a trim.
