Summer means scorching heat, and for you beauties with curly locks, this could mean a frizz ball on your head. Have no fear, though! Your hair doesn’t have to ruin your cute summer look. Below are tips to tame those frizzy locks and make them beautiful curls this summer.
Use a leave-in conditioner
The more dry your hair is, the more likely it is prone to becoming frizzy instead of curly. Using a good leave-in conditioner after you wash your hair will help lock in the extra moisture needed. Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair, and distribute the conditioner evenly. Focus on the ends when applying the conditioner.
Try argan oil
Argan oil or hair products that include argan oil are great to use in the summer because the oil helps hair become more smooth and manageable. When you apply argan oil to your hair, focus on the ends. The oil penetrates deep into each hair’s pores to improve its elasticity and to strengthen it as it grows. Argan oil is beneficial also because the vitamin E, carotenes and essential fatty acids in it lock in moisture, protect hair from sun damage and help give it a healthy shine instead of frizz.
Dry your hair with a diffuser
While air-drying your hair is the best option, excessive blow-drying may make your hair brittle and prone to breakage. Try using your blow dryer’s diffuser to dry your hair instead. After you’ve put your favourite product (gel, mousse, cream, etc.) into your hair, your blow dryer’s diffuser will help define your curls better.
Don’t shampoo as often
If you’re used to washing your hair every day, try cutting back and shampooing it every other day instead. Washing your hair frequently strips it of its natural oils and nutrients, leaving it brittle and prone to damage and frizz. Don’t worry about having dirty or oily hair, because curly hair won’t look either if it isn’t washed for two days. Be sure to continue using a conditioner for the extra moisture when you do wash your hair.
Keep your hands off
Touching your hair frequently will actually ruin your curls and make your hair more frizzy. Be careful not to cause too much friction when towel-drying your hair either. Instead, let it air-dry to have more defined curls.
