How I control my frizzy hair!
Being half Italian, I can honestly say I have struggled with my hair being frizzy and hard to manage. The Internet was never something I thought would be helpful. The last five years of my life I have discovered blogs and YouTube videos that actually had useful information. I never knew there was this sort of community on the Internet. Now that I'm finding my niche in this thing called blogging, I've realized there's a lot of things I could talk about. So let's get right into the basic details! I'm almost 28, I have color damaged hair, and again I'm half Italian. My hair is some what coarse and pretty thin, it just seems thicker than what it actually is. Which isn't always great, considering humidity is my enemy, as is sweating and doing anything that involves either of them.
For shampoo and conditioner I use Aussie Mega Moist, yes I hate that word… Moist… Ew, haha. I buy the huge double pack, with hair down to my butt I go through a lot of soap! It’s also cheaper to buy the bulk size. I’ve been using these for the last couple of months and I have noticed a difference in my hair. It’s much softer and less tangled after I dry it and go to brush it. I always shampoo my scalp really well, massaging with my finger tips. I never use my nails, that causes fine cuts and causes damage. After I shampoo my scalp, I bring the extra soap down the length of my hair and rinse well. When I condition, I focus it from my ears down. If I condition my scalp, oil builds up a lot faster which is strange considering I have naturally dry hair.
After I towel dry my hair is put in some Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine leave in conditioner. I use about a quarter size amount through my ends what whatever is left on my hands I put on the top of my hair to hold down any frizzy hairs. The brush I use is a basic dollar brush and it works great. Its just like a wet brush, but a cheaper version. I work from my ends and go up to prevent breakage. I already have enough damage and breakage, no sense in causing more when I know how you prevent it. On a weekly basis I try to do a hair mask with organic virgin coconut oil. I will leave it in for about twelve hours or longer if possible. I normally forget to do it weekly if we’re being honest. So in all actuality I do it roughly once or twice a month. When I have done it weekly, I noticed my hair grew like crazy! I always notice my hair feels stronger and I noticeably shinier regardless of how often I do it. Coconut oil is great for frizzy control as well. I use the smallest amount possible to just tame the frizz.
I have cut down straightening or heat processing my hair down to only “special occasions” or if I’m in the mood to have straight hair. That’s about once every two or three months. Taking good care of your hair and using good products will definitely help with frizzy hair. If I’m ever having trouble with more frizz than normal, I put a little hair spray on a comb and comb it down. To straighten my hair I use the Garnier Fructis Flat Iron Protection spray. I find it to be kind of stick, but it smells nice! If you guys know of any that work and aren’t sticky, let me know in the comments! I don’t know if this was helpful at all, but I hope it was. Thanks for taking the time to read this post, I appreciate you.
