HOW TO GET RID OF FRIZZY HAIR IN THE SUMMER HUMID MONTHS
Summer can be an enjoyable time, but with it comes managing the way the elements impacts your hair. From wind and chemicals in pool water, to humidity and sun exposure, your haircare routine needs fine tuning when the warm weather comes.
Frizzy hair is a common problem in summer, but it can be tamed. Learn how to stop frizzy hair in summer, with practical tips and product recommendations to prevent it from happening in the first place.
Why Does Hair Get Frizzy?
Hair become frizzy because of two factors: moisture in the air and moisture in your hair.
If you have dry hair, you are more likely to develop frizz because the cuticle absorbs moisture in the air, swelling up. Likewise, humidity combined with dry hair leads to frizz because humid air has more moisture in it than dry. If the air is dry, conversely, you may have more static in your hair, which is easier to take care of than frizz.
Understanding how frizzy hair happens can help you care for it to not only keep it from occurring, but treat it if it’s already frizzy.
How to Stop Frizzy Hair
Take a look at these easy tips for how to fix frizzy hair, plus some Pantene products that enhance your frizz control routine.
Tip #1: Trim Hair to Prevent Frizz
A great way to keep hair from becoming frizzy is to trim it on a regular basis to prevent split ends.
Can’t get to the salon right away? Pantene’s Moisturizing Mist Detangler hydrates hair as well as prevents breakage and split ends. Keep hair fresher longer so you have less frizz until you can get a haircut.
Tip #2: Use Cooler Water in the Shower
Hot water opens up the hair cuticle, but it can also lead to frizz. Turn the temperature down and use Pantene’s Miracle Moisture Boost Shampoo with Rose Water to cleanse hair and hydrate strands. It includes a rich lather and floral scent, plus it’s gentle enough for color treated hair.
Tip #3: Avoid Products with Alcohol
Dry hair can come about in many ways, including because of what’s in the products you use on a regular basis. Check the ingredient list to make sure alcohol and other astringents are absent since they dry out strands.
For cleansing between washes, use Pantene’s Never Tell Dry Shampoo on any hair type, including fine hair or those who want to prolong the life of stlyed hair.
Tip #4: Frequently Use Conditioner
Hydrated hair is less likely to be frizzy hair, so using a moisture-rich conditioner while cleansing can lock in the moisture long after washing.
Pantene’s Miracle Moisture Boost Conditioner with Rose Water is a sulfate-free conditioner that includes pro vitamin B5, antioxidant, and rose water to calm frizz and add shine.
Tip #5: Use Leave-In Treatments
Along with regular conditioning as you wash hair, using conditioning treatments to hydrate prevents frizz. Pantene’s Miracle Moisture Boost Treatment with Rose Water is a leave-in conditioning treatment that softens and moisturizes hair. Once you rinse hair, you’ll feel how petal soft it is thanks to its hydrating formula.
Tip #6: Protect Hair from Heat Styling
Using blow dryers, curling irons, and straighteners may help style your hair the way you want, but they also remove moisture from your strands and contribute to frizz. Pantene’s Thermal Heat Protect Spray is useful to have on hand before you pick up your heat styling tool to protect hair ahead of time. The formula is useful for keeping hair from damaging heat.
Tip #7: Treat Flyaways
Depending on your texture and length, you may experience flyaways which can easily become frizzy. Pantene’s Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist works on all hair types to tame flyaways while also moisturizing.
