Let’s face it — some of us love our hair. Others, not so much. Why? Because one of the biggest culprits of unruly hair is frizz. Even the word sounds unruly! Hair gets frizzy because it lacks moisture, which causes the hair cuticles to lie randomly, rather than tightly together. That’s what causes the dry, frizzy look that so many of us spend so much time trying to fix! Here at the boudoir studio, we love hair and we want you to look your best when you come in for your sexy boudoir photo shoot in Colorado Springs. So, if you suffer from frizzy hair syndrome, take a look below for tips on how to calm the frizz!
Get regular haircuts
Getting a haircut, even if it’s just a trim, once every six weeks will help you avoid split ends, which are a big cause of frizziness. If you’re looking for a bigger change than just a trim, ask your stylist about frizz-calming styles. He or she might be able to recommend a new look!
Always use a moisturizing shampoo/conditioner
This shouldn’t be a surprise — moisturizing shampoo and conditioner will help keep your hair from drying out! A good trick is to rinse the shampoo from your hair with cold water for at least four minutes. Do the same after using conditioner. Why cold water? Because it helps settle the hair cuticles.
Avoid the blow dryer whenever possible
Using a blow dryer on a regular basis can damage your ends, causing them to split and make your hair even more frizzy. Try to air dry your hair whenever you can. Sometimes, it’s hard to not use a blow dryer, and we understand that. So, if you find yourself in such a situation, only use it for a few minutes when your hair is almost dry. If needed, use a flat iron to help hair look healthy and straight.
Use a deep conditioner 1-2 times every week
These can sometimes be costly, but they do great things for dry hair. If possible, deep condition your hair 1-2 times a week to help keep your hair moisturized. This will keep frizz to a minimum.
