Feeling Frazzled?

The Frizz Story

dscn3541Fall has landed lets be honest. Along comes the frizzy hair days and hats. Lots of hats. In BC we struggle with our hair for a good 9 months of the year with our long rainy season. So how can we help make this struggle less real?

5 Tips to de-frizz:

1 – Start with the right foundation. A controlling shampoo and conditioner is going to help your hair’s cuticle layer lay smoother before you even start to style your hair. We recommend KMS California’s Tame Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner or for a more premium option we recommend Goldwell’s Kerasilk Control Shampoo and Conditioner or the Kerasilk Color Mask for an even deeper treatment.

2 – Blow dry from towel dry to dry with a cream, spray or lotion. Your hair’s strongest memory bond during styling happens from wet to dry. We all remember the infamous “wet set” that grandma had done on Saturday’s for the w h o l e week? They had a good thing going back then. Setting your hair from wet to dry is the longest lasting for sure. Try using a boar bristle or boar bristle mixed brush for the best smoothing. We love the Wilhelmina from Fi Hair Brushes. We also recommend the Smoothing Lotion from KMS California or Goldwell’s Flat Marvel to be applied damp. For an even lighter option the leave-in conditioner spray from KMS California Moist repair will do the trick!

3 – Thermally finish your hair to ensure the style lasts with a thermal spray. One of our all DSCN3549.JPGtime favorite products is Hot Flex Spray from KMS California. This product helps to rearrange the bonds in your hair for longer lasting styles as well as it protects against heat damage.

4 – Finish your hair with an anti-humidity product. Some hairsprays contain this, alot of finising serums can also but make sure! We love KMS California’s Anti-humidity seal which has no hold but it is weather proofing in a bottle! For a more controlled finish we recommend Goldwell Kerasilk’s Rich Protective Oil, it is very luxurious!

5 – Stay out of the direct rain! I know this may be impossible but even a hood on a jacket or a newspaper will help. As soon as your hair is in touch with water those bonds start to reshape so watch out!

Stay dry friends!
