How To Get Rid of Frizzy Hair Using This Secret Source

Frizzy hair can be a nightmare!

Most of us have experienced frizz at some point in our lives and it can be one of the most annoying hair qualms.

how to get rid of frizzy hair

If you’ve been battling with frizz, don’t fret.

Here’s one awesome thing you can do to stop your hair from frizzing up and driving you crazy.

Wanna know what that tip is?

It’s simple. Stop using a towel to dry your hair and instead us a t-shirt.

Yes, a t-shirt!

Why ditch a towel?

Firstly, the rough texture of towels not only dries your hair out but also causes friction when it rubs against your hair. This in turn leads to frizz.

Imagine, rubbing something rough-textured against something fragile and frail.

Now contrast that to using something a soft-textured t-shirt on your hair?

When you think about it, using a towel on your delicate tresses makes no sense if you want softer, frizz-free curls.

So, if you’re experiencing frizz, the first thing you should do is swap your hair towel for a soft, cotton t-shirt.

Wash & Go Hair: How To Wear Your Hair Out Without Ruining It

How to wash and go

Wash & go hairstyles

Isn’t it boiling outside! Whilst many of us love the hot weather, our hair doesn’t!

High levels of heat can cause your hair to dry out and lose moisture.

The funny thing is that even though our hair doesn’t love heat, many of us see the summer time as the perfect period to wear our hair out. The choice to wear your hair out is often called ‘wash n go’ because all you have to do is wash your hair and…go!

So how can you wash n go without damaging your hair? Is it possible to wash n go without damaging your hair?


Here are some tips and strategies to bear in mind when doing a wash n go.

Condition. Condition. Condition!

Conditioning your hair is vital during the hot summer months. Make sure you condition before wash n going so that your hair is well moisturized and prepped to handle the heat. A super slipper conditioner will help with detangling and will make combing your hair so much easier.

Be Selective.

Whilst wearing your hair out everyday is tempting, it could potentially cause a lot of damage to your hair and might increase the chances of single strand knots, tangles and split ends. Rather than wearing your hair out everyday, be selective and wear it out on alternative days. You could for instance wear it out on a Monday but not Tuesday, Wednesday but not Thursday and so forth.

Protect it at night.

The night time is the perfect period to nourish your hair back to health. Before dozing off and falling asleep, take a few minutes to detangle with a wide toothed comb or high-performing brush, apply oil to your hair and scalp and tie a headscarf. Doing these three things will protect your hair at night and prevent it from damage during the day.

How To Get Rid Of Frizzy Hair

Frizzy hair tips

Frizzy hair

Frizzy hair has been the bane of women’s lives since… forever!

Firstly, let’s make a key differentiaion; there’s a clear difference between naturally frizzy hair (that’s curly, coily, afro textured etc) and hair that is frizzy because of external influences (like heat, product build up and bad hair practices).
In one of our previous blog posts, I talked about porous and frizzy hair which are categorized by damaged ends, an abnormally rough texture and appearance.
These are some of the tell-tale signs of frizz and should be something that you look out for if you’ve noticed that your hair isn’t feeling quite right.
     So what do you do about frizzy hair and how do you get rid of it?
Here are five key tips and techniques to help you get rid of frizz forever. Remember, when you’re equipped with the right information, it’s easy to make changes and see vast improvements with your hair.
So your hair is experiencing some frizziness and you decide to apply a new product to it. It doesn’t work so you apply another product and another and another (see the pattern?).
This causes ‘product build up‘ which means that your hair is loaded with various products and can’t absorb new moisture.
Your hair consequently becomes dry, porous and frizzy.
Being unaware and clueless about why your hair is frizzy, you try another ‘frizz fighting serum’ but nothing improves- it only gets worse. Sound familiar?
Rather than adding more product to frizzy hair, go back to basics and start afresh with clean, hair!
By shampooing, you’ll remove dirt and open up the hair’s cortex providing it with the moisture that its been craving.
Remember that when washing you need to rinse and repeat and then rinse again in order to ensure that your hair has been properly cleansed.
Although this might sound obvious, a lot of people forget how important it is to condition using a high quality product with great ingredients.
Conditioning is a key part of a healthy hair regime because it combats one (or even two) of the biggest frizz contributors. The first is lack of moisture and the second is lack of protein. This leads me to the third factor:
Your hair is made up of protein which says a lot about what it needs. Not only do you need to regularly treat your hair with protein treatments in order to keep it in the best of conditions, but you also need to eat protein!
Protein can be found in an array of foods ranging from  eggs, chicken, fish to beans and soya.
If you’re not fueling your body with the right nutrients then it’s
no surprise if you’re experiencing dry, frizzy hair.
In addition to eating protein you should follow up with protein treatments which don’t need to be expensive or time consuming. A couple of eggs or a cup of mayonnaise and about 30- 45 minutes of time should suffice. Using either the egg or mayonnaise treatment will help to nourish and condition your hair whilst restoring vital protein.
A lot of women are afraid of cutting even a miniscule amount of their hair; don’t be.
Remember that trimming differs from cutting and simply involves taking off unhealthy ends. You don’t have to go to a salon (unless you feel its best), trimming your own hair is perfectly fine and once you become accustomed to it, it becomes easier and easier.
In fact, its actually quite relaxing knowing that you’re getting rid of unhealthy hair and can instantly feel a difference in your hair’s texture.
     Lay low on heat.
In the bid to have smooth looking hair, many of us resort to applying excessive amounts of heat.
This can actually cause permanent damage to your hair and can make frizz even more apparent. If you’re choosing to use heat, do so with caution and try to keep your hair straightener (or flat iron) at a maximum of 150 degrees Celsius.
It sounds low compared to what you might be used to using, but it’s certainly possible to have straight hair without using high degrees of heat. Also, try to apply heat as little as possible.
For instance, rather than straightening once a week, try once every two weeks. It’ll make the world of difference to your hair and will reduce frizz in the long run!
Now here’s the big thing! Many of us have a habit of reading or hearing advice on something and then just ignoring it or not taking the time or effort to implement the advice that’s given.
     The only way you can really develop a better relationship with your hair and nourish it back to health is by
     taking ACTION!
Action is the biggest thing you can do because by trying things out we’re able to learn and figure out what works for us and what doesn’t.
Take action now by reading through these tips one more time and consciously apply these rules to your daily/weekly hair regime. In doing so, you’ll figure out what works for your hair and you’ll be able to eradicate frizz quickly and easily!

Is Your Hair Dry? How To Banish Dry Hair

How to cure dry frizzy hair

Dry, frizzy hair

Have you ever felt as though no matter how many products you’ve tried, your hair constantly feels dry and limp?

Have you ever ran your hands through your hair to find an odd number of hair strands falling out? If so, you’ve probably experienced dry hair.

Dry hair is particularly common amongst women with naturally curly, frizzy or Afro hair.


Well, scientists note that every twist and bend in one’s hair  creates a place of fragility.

This means that curly girls and guys have hair that is naturally more fragile and delicate than other hair types. As a result, curly hair textures are more prone to breaking than straight hair.

The question that many curly girls and guys ask is:

‘Can I cure dry hair?’ and if so,’how?’

Here are three simple yet effective tips for preventing and reducing dryness.

Avoid heat and excessive chemical processing.

If you’re planning on chemically treating your hair whether by dyeing it, relaxing, perming or any other method then we highly recommend visiting a professional and experienced hair stylist who knows how to care for chemically treated hair.

       Don’t run from water!

Embrace that you need to keep your hair cleansed often (but not too often) and that applying water before applying any product is essential to keep your hair in the best condition.

      Accept that you weren’t born with slick straight hair!

If your hair is naturally curly, coily, frizzy, kinky (or a glorious combination of all of these textures) then accept that your hair wasn’t designed to be super straight!

Adding heaps of heat everyday won’t make it more beautiful, in fact it will probably destroy your hair and leave you feeling miserable.
