With the summer season gently tapping on your window, it’s time to bring all the flowery dresses, bikinis, and tank tops out of your closet and flaunt ‘em right! But the unforgiving NYC heat and humidity can dampen your plans to look effortlessly cute and hot by wreaking havoc on your hair and making it extremely frizzy.
Thankfully high-end hair salons in NYC, like Salon West, have special treatments for frizzy hair. In addition to this, you can also take steps to ensure that your hair remains shiny, soft and smooth throughout the summer season. This blog lists some of the methods through which you can fight frizz and look fab!
● Bathe with cold water
Your hair is already being exposed to heat outdoors so go easy with the hot showers that you love to take. A hot water bath will leave your hair dry and brittle because it robs your mane of all the natural oils and the moisture. Coldwater on the other hand, will hydrate your scalp and seal in the moisture, thus keeping frizz at bay.
● Give up heat styling
Blow drying and straightening your hair on the highest heat settings will trigger frizz in no time at all. Instead, give your curlers and strengtheners a break and use your dryer on the lowest heat setting to dry your hair.
● Use hydrating shampoo and conditioner
While you should limit shampooing your hair, choosing the right products can go a long way in protecting your hair against sun damage. Select sulfate-free, ultra-hydrating shampoos, conditioners, and serums that are packed with glycerin to bring back the shine. And don’t forget to wear a hat when you venture out!
● Opt for keratin hair treatments
If all the anti-frizz products are failing to do their magic on your hair, then you need to walk up to high-end hair salons in NYC to undo the entire frizz and the damage. This treatment works wonders on people with dry hair roots and ends because the main ingredient itself is keratin – a protective protein that strengthens hair and leaves behind a lasting glossy shine.
● DIY masks
Anti-frizz homemade masks are easy on the pocket and they can turn your hair from frizzy and dull to glam and thick within a few days! You can make some for yourself at home by mixing 2 mashed bananas with one tablespoon of honey, one tablespoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of coconut oil. Not only will this zap out frizz, but it will also strengthen your roots naturally, thus preventing breakage.
