DO NOT expose your hair to elements Sun and wind will both dry your hair causing excessive frizzing. Try to wear a scarf or hat to cover your hair whenever you're in sun and especially if you know you're going to be spending a lot of time outdoors. A scarf will also protect against wind damage. You might also consider buying hair products that protect against UV rays (they have a SPF - Sun Protection Factor).
DO have your hair cut regularly Those with frizzy hair will probably be happier with a short style but whatever you choose, it's important you visit your hairdresser regularly as split ends will only add to problem.
DO try to keep your hair dry Damp air leads to frizz. Unfortunately, we can't always ensure that our hair will stay dry but if you think it might rain, carry an umbrella. There are some really funky looking brollies around these days so they won't cramp your style.
DO NOT use heated styling tools Hair dryers, straightening irons and curling tongs all damage hair and should be avoided as much as possible. If you MUST use them, always use a protective product on your hair beforehand. If you're uncertain of kind of product you'd need, ask your hairdresser for advice.
DO use anti-frizz products Products such as frizz-ease aren't just another way of getting you to part with your money. Although they'll never completely eliminate problem, they really do help decrease it. However, it's important that you stick with other tips, too. Using anti-frizz products alone simply isn't enough.
Although I can't promise your frizz problems will disappear, these tips should at least help you eliminate worst of problem.
Just remember that whatever nature's given you, it's a lot better than if you'd not been given anything at all.
Have a happy hair day!
