Are you causing your frizzy hair? Curl stylists offer 8 quick fixes for taming the mane.
Frizzy hair is the curly girl's arch nemesis and you need to arm yourself with tools for battle. But first, you have to figure out what's causing the fight. Here's a guide to the undercover causes of frizzy hair, and how you can fight back.
1. You avoid styling products
If you refuse to try any products at all, it's nearly impossible to avoid frizz. You don't have to crowd your vanity with stylers, but it's critical to test products that are appropriate for your curl type.
"A lot of people equate using any product in their hair as it being a high-maintenance hairstyle," Ethan Shaw, a curl-centric stylist with James Allan Salon in Austin, Texas. "The challenge is to convince them they need to change their attitude about all of that."
Shaw suggests you decide what you want your hair to look like, and then work with your stylist to set goals to get there one step at a time. It may mean cutting off hair that's damaged, finding the right styling produucts, or changing your cleansing and conditioning routine.
