6 Ways To Fend Off Frizz This Summer

September 05, 2017

Summer is in full swing which can mean frizzy hair. While some hair types may be prone to frizz more than others, it can happen to the best of us, but that doesn’t mean you have to let it cramp your style. We understand how frustrating it can be to deal with frizzy hair when it pops up at the worst time. Before giving up all together, consider adding the Smooth Perfection System to your haircare routine. It sends frizz packing by adding moisture back into your hair thanks to nourishing camellia oil. Read on to see how the smoothing system can put you in control of frizz and help you score your sleekest hair yet. 

What Causes Frizz?

To truly beat frizz in the long-term, it’s best to understand what triggers your hair to go poofy in the first place. The main culprit of frizz is a combination of dry hair mixed with humidity. When the weather turns humid, hair wants to drink up moisture in the air like a sponge. The outer layer of the hair’s cuticle, which normally lays flat, begins to swell and lift creating a frizzy end-result. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to stop frizz in its tracks and prevent it from forming in the first place.

1. Brush Carefully

You’ve probably figured out by now that the old wives’ tale about brushing your hair 100 times a day for sleek strands is a myth. Hair that’s a magnet for frizz will want to avoid frequent brushing at all costs. Depending on your hair’s thickness, you can either detangle with a comb or brush while it’s wet. If possible, avoid brushing once your hair dries as this can create more frizz.

Ditch Sulfates

When choosing an anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner, it’s important to avoid ingredients that can strip hair of essential moisture. While sulfates can get the job done when it comes to cleansing, they can leave hair dry and frizzy. Instead opt for a sulfate-free formula, like Smooth Perfection’s Shampoo and Conditioner. With alternative cleansing ingredients like coconut, corn and sugar, they act as surfactants that create an effective lather without stripping the hair. Plus, it’s formulated with our AntiFade Complex to protect your haircolor’s vibrancy, so you won’t have to miss out on having gorgeous color. By choosing the best ingredients for your cleansing routine, you’ll ensure that your hair doesn’t lose moisture in the shower.

Dry Hair Properly

It’s often overlooked, but taking the time to dry your hair as soon as you step out of the shower is a must when attempting frizz control. Instead of grabbing your regular towel, consider drying your hair with a microfiber towel instead. Avoid rubbing the towel vigorously through your hair or twisting the hair then wringing it out. When drying your hair, it’s best to gently pat instead of pull—it might take longer but it’s worth it in the end. Since water opens up your hair’s cuticle, this can make it more prone to frizz and cause the hair to swell. Drying the hair as fast as possible prevents the water from making your hair frizz up. Also before heat styling, give your hair a chance to air dry 90 percent of the way as direct heat can suck moisture out of hair.

Use Serum-On-The Go

In the midst of summer road trips or days spent at the beach, hair is bound to get frizzy every now and then. For moments when frizz sneaks up you unexpectedly, there’s Smooth Perfection Anti Frizz Serum. It’s sure to come in any handy if you ever get caught off guard in the middle of a summer sun shower and want a quick touch up.

Reach For A Styling Aid

Whether you’re going to be blow drying your hair or plan on using a variety of hot tools, a styling aid can be your best friend when it comes to controlling frizz. Pureology’s Smooth Perfection family of styling creams can help tame everything from fine to coarse hair. Thanks to camellia oil, hair looks smoother and shinier because it adds moisture back into strands which is key in fighting frizz. Plus, you won’t have to worry about frying your hair because the styling creams have built-in heat protection.

Protect Hair While You Sleep

While you might still be getting the hang of becoming a morning person, from time to time skipping out on styling to hit the snooze button is bound to happen. To save some time styling during busy mornings, set your hair up for a smoother bedhead by sleeping on silk pillowcases. Cotton can draw out the moisture and rough up your hair, while silk can hold moisture to help keep frizz at bay.
