Q: Frizz. What.The.Eff. Lol!! How do you manage to get such lovely frizz-free wash n go’s!? By the end of the day I’m a poofball. Even in colder months I was dealing with a frizz-bush lol. Any tips please? 🙂
A: Well…you didn’t tell me what you are currently using, so I’ll have to wing it. Oh, and my hair does have a little bit of frizz, but I don’t mind it. 🙂 Especially b/c I touch it alll the time! There are a few things that may help decrease frizz with a wash n go, although I don’t really think that there is an “art” to wash n gos, per se.
- Apply your products in sections – many times, people miss spots, and those are the parts that frizz out as the day goes on.
- Watch the humectants – in winter or summer, too dry hair will frizz and over moisturized hair will frizz.
- Do NOT touch your hair as it dries. DO NOT!
- Before you even get to the actual styling, make sure your moisture/protein balance is on point – hair that is thrown off (with pH balance too) is more likely to be frizzy. If your hair is mushy, you need some protein, and if it’s stiff, hard (oh my), or breaking, you most likely need some moisture in there.
- If you continue to have issues with frizz (referencing back to pH balance above), you can do an ACV rinse in order to close your cuticle – raised cuticles = frizzy hair.
- That being said, stay away from dye if you are already frizz prone, which lifts your cuticle.
