It’s kind of obvious we should be now taking the umbrella everywhere we go just in case but if you do get caught here are some hacks that will help!
It starts in the shower
The cuticle layer which is the outer layer of your hair is the key to keeping moisture out & in which will prevent the frizz & dehydration. A lot of people still skip using a conditioner after shampooing in the hope to have fuller hair, which will leave your hair dry & prone to frizz and breakage. Always use a conditioner.
Don’t over touch or agrivate your hair.
The trick is not to touch it unless there is a good reason, you should be only doing the touching in the shower. When the conditioner is in, a wide tooth comb to remove the tangles and rinse. Do NOT TOUCH IT AFTER THIS!
I’m often suprised when people shake their hair like a hall carpet after a dust storm and then wonder why it’s frizzy. Don’t flip your hair upside down and wrap it in a towel, this is creating frizz because of the direction your drying it. Pat dry or blot dry your hair, never shake, toss it or start flipping this way and that.
Wet to dry & cool
If your hair happens to get wet, or you get caught in the rain try and get it dry as soon as possible. Aim to blowdry it as soon as possible, also make sure all of the moisture leaves the hair using the cold button make sure the hair is cooled down, this closes the cuticle hence helping to repel moisture in and out!
Pretty in Silk
No it’s not just for royalty, get yourself a silk Scarf and wrap your hair in it before going to bed.
