Fighting The Frizz

Written by Sharon Jacobsen

My daughter hates her hair. Several of my friends hate their hair, too. Why? Because it tends to frizz!

We're not talking afro style frizz here or even anything remotely close, but when your hair's supposed to be sleek and smooth, evenrepparttar tiniest amount of frizz can be frustrating.

While I'm not going to suggest I can cure your problems, having had my share ofrepparttar 143177 frizzes I've picked up a good few tips throughrepparttar 143178 years and hopefully, by following them, you'll soon be experiencing frizz-free days, too.

DO NOT wash you hair daily Although you may feel that your hair will be dirty if you don't wash it every morning while you shower, others are very unlikely to notice. Only greasy hair will show signs of being unwashed after one day and frizzy hair is rarely greasy. Onrepparttar 143179 contrary,repparttar 143180 fact that you're stripping away your hair's natural oils isrepparttar 143181 most likely cause of your frizz problem. Leave your hair for 3-4 days between washes.

DO use conditioner Try to find a moisturising conditioner and use it after every wash. It's really worth paying a little extra for a good quality conditioner and if you can't afford both a good shampoo and a good conditioner, putrepparttar 143182 extra money intorepparttar 143183 conditioner.

DO give your hair an intensive hot oil treatment About once every third wash (if you're sticking torepparttar 143184 3-4 day washing guide), use a leave-in intensive conditioner on your hair. This will help replace any natural oils that your hair has lost due torepparttar 143185 abrasive cleaners in shampoo and your hair being exposed torepparttar 143186 elements (sun, wind etc).

DO NOT use chemicals on your hair Those who are unhappy with their hair have a tendency to colour it and use all sorts of other chemicals in a vain hope of somehow making it look better. The truth is, these chemicals are just adding to your problem. If your hair has a tendency to frizz, keep away from unnecessary chemical products.
