So many of our clients at juju are vexed by the frizz. The key to de-frizzing is two-fold, nourishing and re-hydrating the hair coupled with the right products.
HERE ARE MY GO-TO PRODUCTS THAT REALLY WORK!
Start with a DRY SHAMPOO. Over shampooing will dry out the hair, and dry hair, especially on curly girls, will cause The Dreaded Frizz.
I recommend shampooing no more than 3 times a week and using a dry shampoo on off days. Just sprinkle if it’s in powder form or spray for liquid form, a small amount at the hairline and crown, and work through from roots to ends. Cocoa Tinted Dry Shampoo by Sevi is a best seller at my salon.
LEAVE-IN CONDITIONERS are great for long lasting frizz and fly-away control and can also act as a styling product. Apply leave-in conditioner on towel dried hair, mid-shaft to ends. My clients and I love Hamadi’s Shea Leave-in Conditioner. It’s perfect for those who like to air-dry their hair.
Note: watch out for de-frizzing curl cremes that contain petroleum derived silicones for shine. After time, this ingredient will dry out the hair and make your frizz worse!
ALOE BASED STYLING GELS
Aloe not only moisturizes the hair, reducing frizz potential, it provides hold and style. Apply to towel dried hair, midshaft to ends. Try mixing it with your leave-in conditioner for extra thick or frizz-prone hair. I like MGA’s Styling Gel because of its lightness and versatility.
Pure Aloe helps the hair retain water and moisture, re-balances pH levels in the hair and scalp and promotes hair growth!
FINISHING POMADE Dab a very small amount of a finishing paste or pomade on dried and styled hair to reduce frizz’s ‘Halo effect.’ John Masters Organics’ Pomade with olive and castor oils, really fights frizz and can be used on all hair types.
