One of the most frequently asked questions we get is how to tame ever-present frizz. For curly and straight haired girls alike, humidity and heat (just to name a couple) can wreak havoc on your hair and can leave you with more than a few hairs out of place. To combat this, we asked our very own Eric Hauck for a few tips.
It’s all about the right haircut
“First off, start with a great haircut. I like to take weight out of thick hair so it bounces up, instead of being weighed down,” says Eric. “Cleaning up split ends is crucial because you’re getting rid of the hair that’s naturally frizzy, so you’re setting up your hair for success.”
Conditioned hair is happy hair
In the colder months you’re going to want extra moisture, so “apply a leave-in conditioner (I like No FrizzLeave-In Conditioner for extra frizz protection) from the middle to the ends of hair and comb with a wide-tooth comb,” Eric explains. “This will give your hair an extra boost of conditioner and will weightlessly block humidity.”
Using the right product cocktail is key
“If you’re looking to achieve the perfect smooth, frizz-free blowout, apply a cocktail of the No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream and one pump of either No Frizz Nourishing Oil or the Satin Hair Serum. Finish the style with No Frizz Humidity Shield to block humidity and frizz before it starts.”
Embrace your natural texture:
“Products can enhance your style, but remember to work with what you have! Sometimes the best styles occur when you let your hair dry naturally,” says Eric. “Add a little Full Dry Volume Blast for natural waves, and you’re ready to go!”
