Eliminate Frizz this Summer

Frizzy has a tendency to attack both  thin and thick haired alike. If your hair has even the slightest wave or curl, it's susceptible to frizz. With a few tip and tricks from the stylists at Highlights Hair Salon, your wild unruly hair hair will finally be tamed this summer!

 We believe that styling products are not enough to to combat frizz alone. You need to start your regime with hydrating shampoos and masque. Liss Ultime from L'Oreal Professional restores softness, controls frizz and provides nutrition to unmanageable, rebellious hair with a de-tangling action.

 Comb through the masque while you are in the shower, and finish with a cool rinse (with either just water or vinegar/water). It will close down the cuticle and add tonnes of shine to your locks.
 When towel drying your hair, resist rubbing or creating any sort of friction. The best method for drying curly hair is to use a hand towel and squeeze the hair up from ends to roots.
 If you are leaving your curls to dry naturally then avoid using a comb! This tends to open them out and turn them into a big frizzy mess.
 Depending on the length of your hair, apply a small amount of Spiral Splendour from L'Oreal Professional to your curls. Again, Avoid any friction! Squeeze the product in from the ends to the roots.
After applying the styling product, try not to touch the hair until it has dried. The more you fiddle with it, the more chance you have of creating frizz.

If you blowdry your hair, then apply a heat protection serum like Mythic Oil from L'Oreal Professional.  After heat styling with hot rollers or round brushes, use the cool shot button on your hair dryer to cool down the section you're working with. That will increase the curl or volume you're creating and amplify the shine! . Coolness combats frizzy hair by closing down the cuticle (outer) layer of each hair strand.

Surely you've heard say this before, but it warrants repeating...regular trims prevent split ends. It's stressed so often because of the nature of splitting hairs... they continue on up the hair strand, which Amplifies the frizz. And, once the hairs have split, the only way to repair the damage is to cut the hair above the split. So if it's a bounty of smooth curls you desire, trim it up at least every three months.
