I, for one, have coloured my hair many times. When I was younger, I loved to experiment with different colours. Which obviously meant a lot of bleach and other stripping products going through my hair, as well as different hair dyes. I remember going to my hairdresser one day and asking her, “why does my hair keep going frizzy?” I had never had this issue before, as I have longer, thin, straight hair. She then told me that when hair is damaged, it begins to frizz as it is trying to absorb the moisture from the environment, as that is what it is seriously lacking.
This then got me curious, as I know many people with perfectly healthy hair, but theirs frizz too. High humidity, especially during the summer, can lead the hair to frizz when it absorbs excess moisture. Other factors also contribute, such as over-styling with heat that damages the cuticle, the outermost layer of the hair shaft, and this causes frizz.
People with curly and wavy hair are already more prone to frizzy hair and dryness, which is why you find a lot of hair products are directed towards people with those hair types. Such as the Color Wow Dream Coat for Curly Hair. It is an all-in-one smoothing, curl enhancing product for sleek and defined curls.
Another great product, which anyone can use, is the Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray. This is an anti-humidity protection treatment, and it even lasts up to 72 hours. It helps to control moisture levels and combat frizz, acting like a mini Keratin treatment.
I personally have used the Olaplex No.6 Bond Smoother before. I found it was the only thing that helped get my fried and dried out hair under control after years of bleach, when I wanted to go back to my natural colour. This is a leave in styling cream that also helps to combat that frizz and flyaways. I really liked it because I have thin hair, often products are too heavy for me, but I never found this to be an issue with this product.
As for finishing off your hairstyling look, the GHD Perfect Ending – Final Fix Hairspray will keep your hair in place around the clock. This is a great product, as it can be removed with the stroke of a hairbrush, so your hair never has that stiff feel to it. It allows for easy re-styling, and it’s built in humidity resistance protects your hair all day long.
So, if frizzy hair, dryness or flyaways are something you suffer from, whether it is from your natural hair, or as a result of over bleaching, like me, then these smoothing, hydrating products would be amazing for you to try out.
