How do you combat frizzy hairstyles??? With cool water and PRODUCT EXPERTISE!
Frizzy hair is caused by an elevated cuticle in the hairshaft. Similar to shingles on the roof of a house, the hair cuticle has little layers that overlap each other. Hot water, chemicals and hair damage can make those layers stand open, creating roughness along each strand of hair. This means FRIZZ. Yuck.
No worries! Redken has your solution and your master stylist (that’s me) will see you through it!!! First, wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that is designed for your hair condition and type. For damaged hair, use protein-based products, for thick hair, use products with heavier moisturizers and for fine or thin hair, use a lightweight shampoo and conditioner that is professional-grade.
After shampooing, squeeze the excess water from your hair. Hair is like a sponge and if it is sopping wet it will find it difficult to absorb your conditioner. Work your conditioner through until your hair feels very silky. Then rinse with COOL water until the entire temperature of your hair is cool. This may take a minute or two. Remember, heat expands, cool contracts. Shiny, frizz-free hair is contracted and its cuticle is lying nice and flat.
Your next step is to gently towel-dry your hair and to apply about a quarter-sized amount of smoothing product such as All Soft Argan-6 Oil by Redken. More hair may need more oil and fine hair may need less. As you become comfortable with babying your hair, you will know the difference. Comb your hair once product is applied.
DONE. You may now wear your hair on the natural by letting it air dry (recommended on lazy days at home) or heat style as usual. Remember NEVER TO BRUSH while your hair is air-drying. Wait until it is 100% dry and THEN tousle from the underside! Once hair is completely dry and styled, you can polish your look with a dime-sized amount of your Argan-6 Oil.
