HOW TO GET RID OF FRIZZY HAIR IN THE SUMMER
WITH SUMMER COMES MANAGING THE WAY THE ELEMENTS IMPACTS YOUR HAIR
Summer can be an enjoyable time, but with it comes managing the way the elements impacts your hair. From wind and chemicals in pool water, to humidity and sun exposure, your haircare routine needs fine tuning when the warm weather comes.
Frizzy hair is a common problem in summer, but it can be tamed. Learn how to stop frizzy hair in summer, with practical tips and product recommendations to prevent it from happening in the first place.
Why Does Hair Get Frizzy?
Hair become frizzy because of two factors: moisture in the air and moisture in your hair.
If you have dry hair, you are more likely to develop frizz because the cuticle absorbs moisture in the air, swelling up. Likewise, humidity combined with dry hair leads to frizz because humid air has more moisture in it than dry. If the air is dry, conversely, you may have more static in your hair, which is easier to take care of than frizz.
Understanding how frizzy hair happens can help you care for it to not only keep it from occurring, but treat it if it’s already frizzy.
How to Stop Frizzy Hair
Tip #1: Trim Hair to Prevent Frizz
A great way to keep hair from becoming frizzy is to trim it on a regular basis to prevent split ends.
Tip #2: Use Cooler Water in the Shower
Hot water opens up the hair cuticle, but it can also lead to frizz. Turn the temperature down and use Pantene’s -invalid data- to cleanse hair and hydrate strands. It includes a rich lather and floral scent, plus it’s gentle enough for color treated hair.
Tip #3: Avoid Products with Alcohol
Dry hair can come about in many ways, including because of what’s in the products you use on a regular basis. Check the ingredient list to make sure alcohol and other astringents are absent since they dry out strands.
Tip #4: Frequently Use Conditioner
Hydrated hair is less likely to be frizzy hair, so using a moisture-rich conditioner while cleansing can lock in the moisture long after washing.
Tip #5: Use Leave-In Treatments
Tip #6: Protect Hair from Heat Styling
