7 Fixes for Frizzy Fly Away Hair ...

I hate frizzy hair. I’ll spend forever making my hair look healthy and shiny, only to step outside and have the frizziest hair for miles. It drives me mad! I’ve never really known what to do about it, with most serums being too strong for my very fine hair, but I’ve recently found some new fixes for the frizzes. Here are my favourites...

Hairdry Damp Hair

Only use a hairdryer on your hair when it is almost dry. Drying it from wet will make it lose most of your natural movement, and cause the hair to frizz. Let it dry naturally, or towel dry it, until it’s just damp, and then you can hairdry away.


Don’t Blast Each Section

Don’t copy the hairdresser and hold the hairdryer to each section to blast it dry, as this will cause the section to frizz. Instead, keep the hairdryer moving around your head. This will dry it all at the same time, but without causing any of it to frizz.


Style While Wet

Style your hair while it is wet, or completely dry. Leave it alone while it is drying, as playing with it can cause it to frizz up. The good news is, a lot of styles are easier and will hold a lot longer if you apply it to wet hair. It’s also much easier to part!


Use a Setting Lotion

Use a hair serum to smooth down strands, if you need too. These usually have differing instructions, but make sure you pick one that is suitable for your hair type. Greasy hair will need one which only requires a small amount, and very fine hair need a light solution or it will look greasy and slicked back.


Anti Frizz Hairspray

If you’ve styled your hair but its humid outside or you are worried about frizzing, use an anti frizz hairspray. This will ‘seal’ your style in, and prevent your hairs from frizzing up. You might need to wash your hair after using it, however, as some are too heavy to just brush out. I’ve got one, but it doesn’t work too well on my hair, as it’s so light and fine!


Have Regular Trims

Regular trims will keep your hair in good condition, and stop frizzy ends from ruining your look. I have mine done around every three weeks, but if your hair grows slower, you could get away with every six weeks. Your stylist should be able to tell you when you’ll need to go back to keep looking smooth and groomed!


Utilize Water

If, despite your best efforts, your hair does frizz up, don’t fret. Find some water, and use your fingers or a small comb to comb a few droplets through. It won’t be noticeable, but it will kill the frizz, and keep you looking good.

I’ve been using these tips for a few days now, and I’m happy to report that I’m looking a lot smoother, and almost completely frizz free! And having super fine hair means it’ll probably never be utterly un-frizzy, so I’m happy enough. Have you got a tip for fighting the frizz? Please share it with me!

I'd say leave in conditioner is an awesome option. It really tames hair whenever it's frizzy

I'm one of those girls who loves the feel of product-less hair, but when I was younger I used products thinking they would de-frizz my hair---frizz was a major problem. In high school I remember yearning for the smooth, gorgeous hair of many of the girls around me. I even asked them for their secrets to smoothness. However,after spending countless amounts of money on shampoos, conditioners,anti-frizz serums, and other styling products with no luck, I gave up until (don't laugh) in a romantic thriller I was reading, the heroine, battling frizz after moving to a new state, complained to her male counterpart about said problem which he solved by explaining that high iron content in the water was at fault---he was a chemist. Intrigued, I did some research to find that not just iron can affect your hair but other minerals, as well as chemicals like chlorine, and something as simple as the pH balance of your water. I lived in an area with extremely hard water and although we had a water softener we did not have a filter to get rid of the high amount of chlorine the city felt compelled to add. In retrospect, I suspect that the girls with the lust worthy hair had whole house filters. After adding a filter to my shower head (not to my whole house because of cost), I am now one of those girls with smooth shiny hair and I don't need to use styling products unless I want to have tight curls that stay in for most of the day. If you suspect your water may be the problem, you can buy a test kit and test it yourself, you will also want to test for pH. A filter is the best fix but there are other options like shampoos and conditions specifically for this but they will cost you more in the long run. However, after you get the filter you will need to clarify your hair to get rid of previous build-up and then I would suggest deep conditioning it as well.
