Amika is not surprisingly one of our favorite products and the Velveteen Dream Smoothing Balm is top in our list of suggestions for clients trying to control their frizzy hair. Frizz happens when hair is dry and lacks moisture and Spring time brings change that tends to cause clients hair to change with it!
Many things can cause frizzy hair:
Blow dryer, curling iron, straightener, etc.
*Using products that contain Sulfates:
These ingredients are known to dry out hair further, even when added to “moisture” hair care
*Using hot water while washing:
Hot water can strip hair of natural oils that lock in the moisture needed for healthy hair
Brushing disrupts the outer layer and can actually stretch your strands and lead to breakage.
When styling wet hair, apply using fingers from ends to roots, and when styling to blow dry, use styling brush gently and avoid over pulling as hair dries to avoid damage
If you use a towel to dry, do not grab and wrap up, this can pull and cause further damage. Instead, gently start at the ends of your hair and “blot” excess water tip to root, then let dry naturally if not using blow dryer.
Any one of these tips and tricks can help lessen the cause of frizzy hair but Spring weather is the main culprit this time of year. With the humidity rising and the rain that messes up all your careful styling, the outer layer of the hair takes in the moisture from the air, causing the hair to swell and frizz.
