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.
