Curly hair is beautiful, but many times it is accompanied by frizz due to a raised cuticle layer resulting from dehydration. The first step is to identify the type of frizz you are dealing with – i.e.: surface Frizz (on the outside of your hair), halo frizz (on the crown of your head), and in-the-curl frizz (frizz throughout). I personally have all three, but struggle the most with halo frizz.
Here are the steps I take to help combat my frizzy halo.
Limit Shampoo to 2 – 3 times a week as to not over-dry. Even then I opt for a mild cleanser or a co-wash.
Second day frizz: In the morning I slightly wet my hair with water or a spray leave-in, and then finger comb a light gel on pieces that need to taming. As more frizz appears during the day I finger curl strands to encourage clumping.
If all else fails, I keep a stack of bobby pins in my purse at all times and opt for a high bun.
The LCO Method works wonders for my frizz on wash day. After co-washing (conditioner washing) my hair per usual, I get out of the shower and apply a leave-in conditioner that will retain moisture on my hair for the remainder of the day (and sometimes, even days after my wash). Then I use a carrier oil like coconut or olive to seal moisture in and allow my cuticles to lay down smoothly. This lasts 2 to 3 days after washing my hair–and whenever I see more frizz, I usually scrunch a curl refresher spray into my hair to get rid of it.
Another technique to remove frizz on your canopy (or the crown of your head) is with the Praying Hands Method. After washing and moisturizing my curly hair, I like to apply a generous amount of gel to my hands and then put each one on either side of my head, working them in a downward motion. This smooths my frizz immediately, and the gel acts as ananti-humectant — meaning it blocks the atmosphere’s moisture from being able to enter your hair shaft, which is the reason we all get frizz in the first place.
-To cover roots, start with a small amount of powder. -Use your free hand to pull hair taut at the root. -Dab on visible roots, starting from the scalp and working outward. -Repeat as necessary until roots disappear and color looks like new. -When you’re ready to remove, simply shampoo the product out. -To conceal grown out highlights, apply blonde powder and join it to the existing highlight, almost like soft stripes, then brush through to soften lines. -If you have a noticeably light scalp or thinner hair, trace brush over your part. -For tight ponytails, buns, half-up ‘dos, fill in exposed scalp with cover-up for instantly fuller style.
