To avoid frizz, I recommend keeping your hair ends trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks; for hair that has lots of elasticity, you can trim every 3 months. This consistent trimming is a great way to avoid frizz on both straight hair and curly textured hair as well. Visit your stylist for the hydrating conditioners and suggested styling products to keep the frizz in control.
With naturally curly, smooth, wavy or kinky hair, I suggest making use of moisturizing conditioners and shampoos daily. These are products designed for high humidity. They hydrate the hair from the inside out. The great thing about this recommendation is that these moisturizing products work for relaxed hair, too.
The higher the humidity, the more smoothness and shine will begin to take place on the hair shaft. The hair will feel just as soft to the touch as it will be pleasant to smell. Some of these conditioners can be a bit expensive, but you will truly love the results every time. Oh, and the distinct fragrances and smells of these products I’m recommending are to die for!
These lines provide hydration moisture and healthy building for both the hair and the scalp, but I especially recommend these products:
Kevin Murphy line: Hydrate-Me wash shampoo, and Hydrate-Me Rinse conditioner.
Obliphica: Intensive Nourishing Shampoo and Intensive Extreme Shine Nourishing conditioner.
