While we are all about the natural volume sometimes we want to get our strands sleek and slick, but this can prove to be a challenge when humidity strikes. Chatting with Chiara McCarthy at the Hersham Salon she takes the gloves off this autumn to fight the frizz with some easy steps and tips.
The moment you step out of the shower the fight to avoid frizz begins. This occurs when the cuticle layer of your hair is raised resulting in a dry and fuzzy appearance. If you are air-drying Chiara recommends using a towel to avoid pulling the strands apart. Try blotting the hair which reduces the drying time and allows for the natural moisture to be retained. When drying, we protect the hair with Alterna’s Bamboo Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant which will help reduce breakage.
Frizz is your hair’s way of reaching out to the atmosphere to swell and capture more moisture. Before you exit the shower give your hair the moisture it needs, resulting in a less likely frizz attack afterwards. If you are dealing with severe frizz, using a professional home hair care shampoo and conditioner will greatly reduce the fight and leave your hair with a frizz free texture.
All the salons carry a range of products to help combat the frizz. We recommend Alterna Bamboo Smooth trio of Anti-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner with the Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant. For a more purse friendly purchase and a great alternative is Living Proof frizz Shampoo and Conditioner with the Weightless styling spray which weightlessly blocks humidity and smooths without build up by not containing any heavy silicones or oils.
