Get frizzy hair under control

When the weather is windy, your frizzy hair can get even more frizzed out. The key to keeping your locks looking lovely is to make sure your hair is hydrated and protected. With these haircare tips, your frizzy hair will look fabulous, even in the windiest weather.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

Just like your skin, your hair needs to stay hydrated in order to look and feel healthy. Frizzy hair is dry and coarse. Pour on the moisture with a hydrating/moisturizing daily shampoo and conditioner, and a deep conditioning treatment once a week. Also consider getting a Brazilian Blowout. The smoothing treatment lasts up to 12 weeks, if you use the maintenance products. The Brazilian Blowout leaves your hair frizzy-free, shiny and very manageable. Check out these before and after pictures and learn more about the Brazilian Blowout.

Turn down the heat

Blow dryers, flat irons and the weather can cause breakage and dehydrate frizzy hair. Towel dry your hair by blotting (not rubbing), then allow it to air dry whenever possible. If you must blow dry, use a diffuser to reduce the damage and the frizz. Look for hair products that protect your hair from the heat, sun and wind. Products infused with vitamins, minerals and SPF can nourish and protect your hair. Rather than brushing your hair, style it with your fingers or use a wide tooth comb to reduce frizzies and flyaways.

Hairstyles for windy weather

When the weather is windy, keep your hair in check with a pretty headwrap or pull it back with sparkling hair clips, barrettes and other hair accessories. To control the frizz, use a hair serum. Hair serums are often silicone-based and can smooth the frizzies while adding high-gloss shine. The best hairstyle for windy weather is a braid. Pull your hair into a ponytail -- low on the base of your neck. Then braid the ponytail and secure with a small band. You can leave the braid hanging free, or spin it into a spiral and secure it on the back of your head.
