The best anti-frizz hair products to take care of your hair at home

(NVG Hair)

There is a fine line between beached waves and frizz. It’s something I know all too well. I’ve spent most of my life perfecting my hair routine to beat the dreaded frizz. The familiar feeling of leaving the house with perfectly styled curls or the smoothest straight hair and within seconds feeling like you’ve been dragged through a bush in the wettest place in the tropics is far from ideal. . Can you relate?

I realized that there is not a single person who has not suffered from the effects of frizz and it can happen for a number of reasons. First, the elements. As we know, Mother Nature isn’t always the kindest to our tired hair, from pollution and the sun to an all-powerful downpour, the environment really takes its toll on our hair. The way we dry our hair can also lead to frizz, especially with curlier hair types. The key is to use an ionic hair dryer or a microfiber towel due to their quick drying properties and the fact that they are slightly gentler on your fragile strands.

But the most overlooked cause is undoubtedly dehydrated hair. A lack of moisture in your hair can make it limp and dry, causing frizz. This obviously means that washing your hair too much might just be your fatal flaw.

According to hairstylist and ARKIVE Founder Adam Reed, “There are two types of frizzy hair. There is naturally frizzy hair where the hair tends not to line up with other strands, causing a frizzy, unkempt look that can be difficult to control.Then there is the frizz caused by dry hair that lacks moisture.The cuticle layers should ideally lie flat, but in this case the hair cuticles are rough and don’t line up. pas, which allows moisture to penetrate the hair, moisture in the air is then absorbed, which can contribute to a frizz “halo”.

“Frizzy hair can be difficult to control, but you should start by moisturizing the hair to smooth and seal the cuticles. Moisturizers align the hair and the cuticle and work to smooth the surface of the hair, giving the appearance of a more controlled styling.Making sure your hair is adequately hydrated means you prevent your hair from frizz.Dry hair is much more prone to frizz, so it’s essential to use products that coat the hair and lock in moisture – silicone is an excellent ingredient for this.

The best way to avoid and banish frizz for good is to incorporate hydrating masks and serums into your hair routine – and after years of trying and testing, here are my top picks.

Ouai finishing cream

Founded by Kardashian-approved hairstylist Jen Atkin, Ouai has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2015. Enriched with the brand’s smart technology, the finishing cream contains amino acids, tamarind seed, keratin, ama oil, hibiscus and jasmine that helps boost moisture levels and protect against humidity and frizz. The scent is divine and it also helps create a shield against the elements including UV rays, pollutants and heat. Work it into your ends and anytime your hair needs a little TLC. That’s a big yes from me.
