Is this you “I can’t do anything with my hair because its too damn frizzy, and I ain’t got time for that”. Well who does!?! When I was first building my clientele, the number one complaint I would hear is the Frizz Factor. I hardlyyyyy ever hear this anymore, and I’m about to tell you why 🙂
Lets start with the basics. What shampoo and conditioner are you using???
Let me guess you’re using Treseme?? Pantene?? Fructis?? These store bought brand shampoos are the number one cause to Frizzy Hair, in my book. They may smell amazing, and make your hair feel soft in the moment, but it has ZERO benefits for your hair. I always compare these shampoos with McDonalds, here me out… McDonalds tastes delicious, its affordable as all hell and its easily accessible! But does McDonalds have any nutritional value to your health at all? Uhhh no. Just like the shampoo that is probably chilin in your shower right now… It’s SOOOO important to invest in shampoos that actually have a purpose to help keep your hair healthy and happy! I know what you’re thinking “I can’t afford the expensive shampoos”. I’m very aware that they are a bit pricey, but do you want to constantly struggle with your hair day in and day out? I used to be THAT GIRL. I used Dove, because that’s what my mom would buy for me in high school, and I would literally spend 45 minutes every morning straightening my frizzy hair because that was all I could do with it. Now that I have invested in amazing shampoos I can air dry my hair!! Uh WHAT? Didn’t even know that was possible, unless you had Asian straight hair. I’m here to tell you, it’s possible. Keep in mind, it takes time for your hair to rebuild and restructure and become healthy again. Using the shampoo for a week does not mean you can start letting your hair air dry. Next time you reach for a Starbucks coffee, make some coffee at home, pocket the money and save for your Shampoo! You’ll have $50 by the end of the week, if you’re like the rest of us So Cal on the go hustlers.
Do you blow dry your hair using the Nozzle??
I literally just crossed this problem myself. My nozzle on my blow dryer broke and I was like, eh I’m a pro, I’ll do with out it…. WRONG. My hair took twice as long to blow dry and it was frizzy and just out of control! I bought a new nozzle, and voila my frizz problems were gone. Hopefully, if you bought your blow dryer with the nozzle you haven’t thrown it away and you can just attach it back on and carry on. But if you have thrown it away…. try checking out amazon if they sell the nozzle separately specifically made for your blow dryer. The reason why the nozzle is so important is because it helps control the direction of the air flow. Without the nozzle the air is flying all over the place and making your hair frizzy because its coming from all directions, kind of like how the wind hits your hair. Your hair goes wild and in all directions right? With the nozzle, you have complete control to blow dry your hair cuticles down in the right direction which will result in a nice smooth, polished look. ( I’m sensing YouTube Tutorial…….)
Is your heat to high on your hot tools??
Do you straighten your hair everyday or curl your hair often?? A lot of the times, I would find my clients turning their heat all the way up to the hottest setting. WHYYY GOD WHYYY? ( F.r.i.e.n.d.s. anyone? ) Unless, you have thick, rope like hair, then you should not, I repeat should NOT have your heat to the highest setting. This is killing your hair so fast, your hair doesn’t have a chance in hell to look pretty and be healthy. I would like for you to check your heat when you get home, or right now and change it to the Medium setting. Also, if you didn’t know already, never apply your hot tools to damp hair! Make sure that your hair is 110% dry before you start any styling with your hot tools. This will definitely be a game changer for you if you’ve been styling with hot heat all this time and your hair is fine to normal… Also use a heat protecting product as often as you can! It’s like the SPF of hair products 🙂
