Spring is fast approaching (thankfully), and the humidity comes with warmer climates coming along. For all you lucky ladies who live in dryer climates, I’m jealous, but these tips for keeping that annoying frizz in check can undoubtedly be used anytime!
For curly-headed beauties:
Leave-in conditioner is your best friend! One of the biggest problems with curly hair is dryness. Give those curls some deep moisturizing, and you will be amazed by the results. Depending on your preferences, almost every brand has some leave-in conditioner or leave-in balm, sprays, and lotions.
Just keep an inch to two inches away from your scalp to avoid the look of greasiness. Your natural oils will take care of your roots. Here are some of my favorites, ranging from products you can get anywhere to salon-exclusive brands:
Clairol Leave-in Moisturizing Balm (favorite!)
Bumble & Bumble Leave-In Conditioner (favorite!)
Quidad Leave-In Conditioner
For the straight-haired lovelies:
Volume! As much as straight hair is desired, it’s not a walk in the park like some women think. Straight-haired females often have the problem of thin hair or hair that looks like it is glued to their scalp. There are also the ladies who like to flat-iron their hair until they burn it off, and it just hangs there with no shape (P.S. Ladies, ALWAYS use heat protection spray, whether using a flat-iron or a blow-dryer. Everyone carries it! My favorite is Tresemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray.
Add some volume to that mane of beautiful hair and let it flow, ladies! You’d be surprised what a few texturizing or volumizing spray spritzes will do. Suddenly, there is a little flip to that boring old hairstyle! Even if your hair is notcurlyy, these products also give your hair a hold that will keep your style looking fabulous all day. The great news about most of my favorite products is that you can use them whether your hair is wet or dry. I love to spray texture into my hair right before leaving the house, just for a bit of hold and assurance.
Wella Ocean Spritz Texturizing Spray (favorite!)
Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray (favorite!)
Everyone’s hair is different and unique, so experiment. Try a few other products and combinations to find what you like and what you think makes your hair look ready for a photo shoot. Above everything else, ensure you take care of your hair with regular haircuts (generally every four months), do not use damaging chemicals, and protect it! Before you know it, you’ll be flipping your hair around the dance floor with contagious confidence in no time!
Most, if not all, of these are available at Sephora.com and, excluding the salon brands, at your local CVS or Walgreens.
