Curly Hair Q&A: Moisturize That Frizzy Hair!

Tame your mane with these moisturizing tips for frizzy hair.

Dear Rebecca: This past February I had the Brazilian Blowout done, then in May I had it done again, this time using a weaker version. My hair is pretty straight.

Normally I have very curly hair, corkscrew type of curls. I was hoping for something that would eliminate all the frizz, and simply loosen the curls. I didn't want something that would take them away completely. The straight hair looks very pretty; however, I'm hoping for a happy medium. Something that will still leave my curl, and some volume, but take away that awful frizz, and also that feeling like my hair is a helmet. If you will recommend a treatment like the Brazilian though not as severe, that will still leave my curl, I'd be very grateful to you.

Dear Miss Frizz: Let me begin by saying we all feel you when it comes to frizz. I find that typically you cannot 100% eliminate frizz. But, there are some definite ways of controlling it. The hair usually frizzes in response to being moisture-deficient, overly manipulated, and sometimes cut with the wrong tools. I would estimate that your hair now feels a little dry, and appears dull. Do not worry! You can heal your hair. Try a moisturizing treatment, beginning first with a clarifying treatment to remove all impurities on the hair, then shampoo with Design Essentials Moisture Retention Shampoo. You will immediately feel the results after shampooing.

I love, love, love Design Essentials Stimulations Super Moisturizing Conditioner. It replenishes the hair with moisture and protein leaving the hair feeling rejuvenated. So be sure try Stimulations and remember to towel-blot your hair to remove excess water before applying this conditioner. Allow Stimulations to infuse your strands for 15 minutes and rinse with cool water. The cool water closes the cuticle layer of the hair, locking in moisture and leaving the hair feeling soft and silky. As I said above, the key to taming frizzy hair is always using a leave-in conditioner. Think of leave-in conditioners like your purse, you would never leave the house without it!

Now on a daily basis, try using a moisturizing agent to re-hydrate your curls, and style. Wave by Design 2N1 Define and Shine is an excellent way to rehydrate curls, and define with shine. It’s really simple to use too. Apply a quarter-size amount to palms emulsify and apply to hair focusing on defining each curl with hands. Remember not to over manipulate or play too much with your hair. This will cause frizz. Manipulate just enough to where the curl is defined and beautiful. You’ll be able to enjoy your style all day.

I tried Design Essentials and it doesn't work well for my curly hair. It actually tangled it :-(
