As summer approaches, the weather is slowly starting to heat up. We can’t wait to spend our days at the beach, soaking up the sun! But with the sun comes heat and humidity, which can lead to major frizz. But don’t frizz out, and learn how to tame frizzy curly hair this summer. These tips will help you keep those flyaways under control.
1. Develop a Healthy Hair Care Regime
Start by identifying your hair type. If you have naturally straight hair, you’ll need to wash it several times a week. However, if you have a naturally curly to kinky texture, you won’t need to wash your hair more than once a week. Once you are finished washing your hair, be sure to rinse it with cool water as that will help the follicles lock in the moisture they’ve retained.
No matter your hair type, always be sure to deep condition your hair at least once a month. Depending on how often our extensions are worn and if they are color treated, we recommend deep conditioning our extensions as well with our deep conditioner.
2. Be Mindful of the Products You Use
Chemically enhanced products that appear to make your hair behave but only mask the problem short term can have damaging long-term effect that lead to more frizzing. Be sure to use natural, sulfate and alcohol-free products like our hair care essentials bundle.
3. Colored Hair Extensions for a Frizz-Free Fabulous Look
Why risk the frizz and damage that often come with dyeing your own hair, when you can effortlessly clip in or weave vibrant, perfectly toned hair extensions? These extensions come pre-treated and colored, ensuring that every strand is smooth, silky, and absolutely frizz-free. They let you experiment with exciting colors and shades, without the commitment or hair damage. Whether you're looking to add a pop of color for a special occasion or want to rock a new hue every day, colored hair extensions offer the versatility and ease you need to keep your hair game strong and stylish.
4. Moisturize Your Hair from the Inside Out
Moisture is one of the best ways to fight frizz. But it’s not enough to add moisture to your hair using products. Stay hydrated by drinking water will ensure that your hair retains moisture. Lock in that moisture by using leave-in conditioner. Your hair also needs nutrients to stay healthy, making it less likely to frizz up. Be sure to eat right and apply oils (like our argan oil) that provide the nutrients your hair may lose throughout the day.
5. Be Careful with Color
As we all know, dying your hair can take a major toll on even the healthiest of hair. So it’s important to stay away from dyes that have harsh chemicals like ammonia. To avoid damage, we achieve our color by dying naturally gray hair and color it as desired. This eliminates the need to strip away the color (as well as much of its nutrients) on top of dying the hair. The more processed the hair is the more damaged and frizzy it becomes. Instead of exposing your hair to the damaging color process, change up your Summer style with our sew in weaves!
6. Protect and Style
Whenever heat styling your hair, always make sure to use a heat protectant to minimize heat damage. Heat can dry out and irritate the cuticle and shaft, causing it to frizz up and become brittle. Once your hair is heat styled, renew the moisture and nutrients by applying out silk nectar serum.
What Causes Frizzy Hair?
Frizzy hair arises when the hair cuticle is lifted, allowing moisture from the air to infiltrate the hair shaft. This causes the hair shaft to expand, making individual strands rough and frizzy. Insufficient hydration can also make the cuticle more prone to lifting, causing frizz. Other causes involve:
- Overwashing or underwashing your hair
- High porosity hair
- The use of harsh products
- Incorrect styling techniques
- High humidity levels
- Damaged cuticle
Tips to Minimize Frizzy Hair
- Hydrate Your Hair: Keep your hair hydrated with moisturizing shampoos, conditioners, and leave-in treatments.
- Use Anti-Frizz Products: Use anti-frizz products like serums, creams, or oils to smooth the cuticle and reduce frizz.
- Protective Styling: Consider using protective styles like braids or updos to reduce exposure to humidity and environmental influences.
- Avoid Heat Damage: To prevent heat damage, limit the use of heat-styling equipment and apply heat protectant products while styling.
- Regular Trims: Trim your hair on a regular basis to avoid split ends and protect the cuticle.
How to Tame Curly Hair
To tame curly hair, you usually need to follow a hair care routine that focuses on getting rid of frizz, making curls stand out more, and keeping your hair healthy overall. When washing, use moisturizing shampoo or conditioner to keep your curls hydrated and minimize frizz, and finish your shower with a cool water rinse to help seal the hair cuticle, reducing frizz and enhancing shine.
Haircuts and regular maintenance also play an important role in taming curly hair. Schedule regular trims to get rid of split ends, which can contribute to frizz and disrupt the curl pattern.
How to Tame Straight Hair
Use hydrating shampoo and conditioner to keep your straight hair smooth and healthy. Apply straightening balms, creams, or serums to keep your hair sleek and frizz-free. These products can also add shine.
Use anti-frizz products to control humidity and keep your straight hair smooth and protect your hair from the sun by wearing a hat or using products with UV protection. Proper nutrition is also important. Eat a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals to promote overall hair health and shine, and drink plenty of water to keep your hair hydrated and prevent dryness.
