For some of us, maintaining coarse frizzy hair can be a pain! What many don’t know is that its not just the blowdryer or straightener that needs to be present in order to smooth out frizz, but that the look requires prepping and product to preserve smooth and sleekness! Here is a step to step on how to control the frizz and enjoy a long-lasting blow-dry.

  1. Prep damp hair with a hydrating frizz control leave in conditioner. Here we used THIS ONE.
  2.  Spray damp hair with a frizz control weightless styling spray. Our current fav is THIS ONE.
  3. First section off your fringe or front pieces  that frame your forehead (width distance temple to temple). Using a round brush smooth this section away from your forehead gliding the dryer along the top of the hair to seal and smooth. ( The key here is to point the nozzle not directly on the hair to dry, but to let it rest slightly above the hair. Doing this will allow you to control the hair creating a smooth and sleek look.)
  4. Continue with the front section and wind it into a tight coiled bun. Clip and leave to set.
  5. Next section off  hair on your right and left side. If you need to create smaller sections within these sections you may do so.
  6. Start with either side and smooth both sides using your round brush gliding the blowdryer slightly above the hair. With your round brush direct and blow the hair toward the face. This will help create volume at the root as well as create a equally balanced look and smoothness for both sides.
  7. After your sides are smooth. Work your way to the back of your head. Here create two horizontal sections. Clip top section and tuck away.
  8. Start with the bottom half and section into two vertical sections. Using the round brush smooth each section bringing the hair towards the face when blowdrying. (Continue step 8 for other sections.)
  9. Once you’ve reached the last section (top of the head) continue the same smoothing technique.  styling everything  forward (towards the face).
  10. When you’ve completed smoothing out hair. Gently blow warm air across the top of the head to tuck away any baby hairs (the key here is to not blow directly on the scalp but to hold the dryer at an angle. Use the palm of your hand and fingers (faceup) to comb through the hair from the scalp while drying. This will help control the hair and tuck away those stubborn baby hairs).
  11. Now remove clip from first section, unwinding it split in half or your desired part.
  12. Polish off your frizz free blow-dry with a finishing humidity spray. This will preserve a long-lasting sleek look. Here we used THIS ONE
  13. For extra smoothness run a nourishing hair oil through the mid-shaft and ends. Here we USED THIS ONE.

ENJOY!

POST-BLOWOUT FRIZZ FIGHTER

One of the worst things I can think of is blowing out your entire head of hair only to find it getting puffy + frizzy by the time you’ve put your makeup on and gotten dressed. Obviously the curling iron or flat iron can help but sometimes you just want to wear a smooth, bouncy blowout. We get a lot of emails asking how to eliminate the puff. Here’s what works best.

  1. Blow your hair out as usual. Use a good serum to help you control your frizz.
  2. Once you’re done blowing your hair out split it into two sections. Twist both sections BACK (away from your face) starting up near your temples. Don’t laugh– tuck one side into your bra strap while you do the other side.
  3. Join the two sections together under your chin using a rubber band as you see in photo 3.
  4. Go apply your makeup and get dressed. I know you may look like a little wierdo, but WHO CARES! We’re fighting frizz!
  5. Once you’re dressed and ready to roll, take the rubber band out and put a drop or two of your favorite serum. We love THIS ONE and used it for this tutorial!
  6. Put a little serum where you need it and you’re good to go!
