Ugh Hair Frizz! We all hate it or at least try to fight it. No matter what hair type we have and with April showers upon us, we will try anything for hair frizz control and smooth hair. Nick Arrojo, the owner/founder of ARROJO studio in NYC, has shared some great tips for taming flyaways and maintaining gorgeous hair no matter what the weather is outside.
How do I banish the frizz?
Just follow these simple and effective tips from Nick:
- Get the right haircut: Go for a strong shape that is easy to maintain on a daily basis. Any cut that is short to mid-length with a good solid shape will suit extremely frizzy hair perfectly. These cuts won’t alter your hair texture, but the strong shapes will get you looking polished and pulled together, and controlling frizz will be much more manageable, making your styling quick and simple.
- Style the hair using a silicone based defrizz serum: The smoothing properties of silicone defrizz along with a moisture-based styling or curl crème to lock in curls without the dryness and without the frizz. Be sure to focus the defrizz serum towards the mid-lengths and especially the ends. Hair Frizz occurs on the oldest, and therefore most damaged part of the hair, which is of course towards the ends. Focusing your serum application in this way ensures you keep the frizz at bay.
- Retro Salon Tip: This is one of the best ways for frizz control and is a bit of a throwback to old school salon tricks, but it still works better than any newfangled product I’ve seen. Pack a shower cap with leave in conditioner (a little more than you would normally use). Keep the shower cap on damp hair for 10 minutes, then remove the cap and style as you normally would – no need to rinse. This is a great way to lock-in the moisture-giving benefits of the product into the hair shaft for added support. Your hair will be richly moisturized, hydrated, soft, shiny, and have more malleability, making it much easier for you to style. You can even add a little styling crème, which will give your hair added hold and texture.
