Fight the Frizz: Hot Oil Treatments You Need To Know
When you're washing the oil treatment out of your hair, you might have to shampoo, rinse, and then re-lather and rinse again. This will ensure the oil has been sufficiently rinsed out and avoid a dull, greasy look.
While frizz control serums and gels can provide some help, they're not a true fix. If you want to really improve the condition of your hair, you have to commit to a healthier hair care routine. The fight against frizz begins with a good haircut. Avoid choppy cuts and anything that further frays the hair shaft, such as thinning shears. This isn't always easy; many times frizzy hair is very thick and unruly to begin with, so any cut that removes bulk provides temporary satisfaction. Unfortunately, the good results don't last long. Frizz returns with a vengeance because the hair was stretched and damaged from the cut. Ask your stylist about layering as an alternative; it can help take some weight out of thick, heavy hair.
Your next step is to be gentler with your hair at home. It can be tough to take it easy on your mane when you're always in a hurry, but more attentive combing, brushing and styling habits will help stop future damage.
Use a shampoo and conditioner formulated for damaged or frizzy hair. Be sure to use a detangling spray or leave in conditioner to ease out knots and make for smooth combing.
