After all, everyone wants hair that’s shiny, smooth, and frizz-free. Luckily, now you can bid adieu to your frizzy hair because we’ve made a list of must-dos to fight the frizz and dryness.
Curious to know how? Well, read on and learn how you can tame your mane.
Pick the right shampoo
Shampoos can strip your hair of its natural moisture. So, if you’re battling dry hair, it’s a sign that your strands are thirsty for hydration. Choose a shampoo that’s power-packed with moisturizing properties to give your hair a much-needed boost of hydration. Always remember to opt for a sulfate-free shampoo, as these are not only gentle but also lock in moisture and keep hair hydrated and happy.
Invest in a good conditioner
Tired, frizzy, dry hair needs a good boost of conditioning to get it up and about. That’s where a rich, hydrating conditioner comes in. Conditioners work fabulously in coating the hair, smoothening and softening it, replenishing lost moisture, thus helping hair to bounce right back. Always apply conditioner to the ends of your hair as they need to be hydrated the most. Then work your way up. Roots are usually freshly grown and hence are less prone to damage.

Never forget the serum

Moreover, it coats hair with a protective layer and protects it from damage. Serums are superheroes that bring back moisture to parched hair and give it a stunning megawatt shine.

Be generous with the oil
Oiling is the OG hair care regimen that has been faithfully handed down from one generation to another. And the healing powers of this miracle liquid hold true even today. Massaging oil into your hair increases moisture, luster, and shine. It also boosts hair with the necessary vitamins and minerals and helps in smoothening and softening hair.

Use a wide-tooth comb
A wide-toothed comb is a boon for frizz-prone hair. That’s because these combs have more space between their teeth for hair to pass through, making it easier to detangle hair, and hence reducing breakage and frizz.
Try a hair mask
If your thirsty strands and screaming for hydration, quench them with a hair mask. While oiling is excellent, hair masks give that extra nourishment and promise to rescue your parched strands from dryness and transform them from drab to fab. An absolute must-have in your haircare routine.
Hot water is out
Avoid washing off your hair with hot water. Lower temperature protects your hair from over-drying and helps to bind hair cuticles. Cold rinse to help bind hair cuticles, locks in moisture from your conditioner and leaves hair looking hydrated, healthy, and frizz-free.
- Don’t wash your hair every day. Daily shampooing will strip your hair of natural oils, leaving it brittle and dry.
• Never rub your hair dry. Instead, squeeze it gently and remove excess water.
• Avoid combing or brushing wet hair. Wet hair is extremely vulnerable and prone to damage.
• Regular trims are a must. Experts suggest trimming your hair every three months to prevent split ends.
• When buying your hair product look for buzz words like hydration, moisturizing, fizz-control, anti-dryness.
• Avoid alcohol-based hair products, dyes, bleaches, and any such treatment.
• Cut down on heat styling like curling, straightening, or hair drying. These dry out your hair making them prone to damage.
