Frizz. It’s a word that sends shudders through gorgeous hair lovers everywhere. How often have you created the perfect sleek look and by the time you arrive at the party, or the office, your hair is like a fright wig?
For some, frizz is an ever-present hassle, something to battle every day before leaving the house, adding hours to your morning routine and starting the day off badly. In short, frizz is the enemy, but we can help you beat it!
Know Your Enemy
The major cause of frizzy hair is lack of moisture, but just to confuse you, it’s made worse by humidity in the air. If you let your hair get dehydrated, it will take in moisture from where ever it can. So, when you step outside on a humid day with dry hair, gasping for moisture, it will absorb the water in the air and you will soon have a head of frizz.
Even on days that aren’t overly humid, frizz can raise its ugly head. As hair becomes dehydrated throughout the day, the outermost layer, or cuticle, will open up to take in whatever moisture it can find in the atmosphere, so by around midday your hair can be a frizzy horror.
You can give your hair more than just a fighting chance by creating an anti-frizz regime, using the right products and treatments to ensure frizz is a distant memory, not an ongoing nightmare.
The first step to frizz-free hair is to book yourself in for an intense KeraStraight treatment. If time is of the essence, then you could opt for Intense Boost, a conditioning treatment that takes just 30 minutes and lasts for up to 30 days. It’s the perfect quick fix for fighting frizz, renewing, repairing and, hydrating hair, leaving it strong, healthy and frizz-free.
To help ensure your hair remains smooth between salon visits, you should also invest in some frizz-fighting homecare. One combo that will definitely help is KeraStraight Moisture Enhance Shampoo and Conditioner. Both products are designed to maximise the benefits of your KeraStraight treatment, but they are also a great stand-alone shampoo and conditioner, helping to lock moisture into the hair to leave it shiny and banishing frizz. A conditioner is particularly vital in the fight against frizziness, so don’t skip it – even if you feel your hair doesn’t need a shampoo every day, you can still apply conditioner and rinse through to ensure your hair remains nourished and moisturised.
Another great ally in the war on frizz is the Moisture Mask. This highly concentrated treatment is packed with lightweight, moisture-capturing ingredients, including palmeira tucuma and carob bean extract, which repair and rehydrate hair, leaving it soft and shiny, ensuring it is not prone to frizziness, whatever the day has in store.
And don’t forget Ultimate Oil, an easy to apply, everyday styling product that uses nine specially selected oils to nourish and hydrate your hair. It’s the perfect handbag accessory so you can go straight from office to party without fear of frizzing!
To ensure your hair remains totally frizz-free and is effortless to maintain and style, the best investment you can make is to book in for a KS Ultimate treatment. KeraStraight’s protein-based technology will banish frizz and keep hair looking and feeling gorgeous for up to four months. Speak to your hairdresser about all the other incredible benefits.
The effects of all these treatments and products are cumulative, meaning that the longer you maintain your anti-frizz regime, the healthier hair becomes, saving you time and helping to ensure you are never bothered by frizz again.
Other top tips for discouraging frizz include:
- Regular brushing – this will distribute your hair’s natural oils from root to tip, helping to protect from humidity.
- Brush when wet – brushing hair when its bone dry will encourage frizz, always brush damp hair.
- Use quality styling products – always opt for styling products that offer moisturising benefits, these will help maintain moisture levels throughout the day and are easy to top up. KS Style Moisture Mist is a great example.
- Avoid alcohol – many hair products contain large amounts of alcohol, which does nothing to benefit your hair. Always check the ingredients of any product to ensure they are designed to nourish and hydrate.
