Hola peeps! Well I suppose it is a Happy Hump Day, despite the weather outside my window. No fear I stumbled upon an article on naturallycurly.com that gives great tips on fighting FRIZZ on rainy days like today. Here is a snippet:
1. Essential Oils
Chaz Dean, celebrity stylist and founder of Wen Hair & Body Care products and Chaz Dean Studio in Hollywood, CA, suggests using a product with essential oils as a leave-in treatment for unruly tresses. His product line includes cleansing conditioners, styling cremes and texture balm (all containing plant and fruit extracts), as well as three bath, body and hair oils: Tea Tree (especially for sensitive, dry or flaky scalps), Fig and Sweet Almond Mint.
“It’s cold-pressed oil that helps penetrate into the hair to where it’s not greasy,” Dean says. “The oils are used directly on the scalp as a treatment and to help stimulate healthy hair growth, especially in the months we’re approaching.”
Ethan Shaw, a stylist at Anne Kelso Salon in Austin, TX, suggests carrying a spray bottle with an essential oil as a time-saving tool to prevent frizzy hair and perk up droopy curls on the second or third day.
“I like tea tree oil, and you can mix it with water,” Shaw says. “The oil is light enough that it’s not going to make your hair feel oily, and just heavy enough to give you a little more control than just water would.”
He recommends the Bumble and bumble Tonic. You can also create your own product by filling an 8-ounce spray bottle with water and half an ounce of tea tree oil.
“It’s great when you’re on the go,” he says. “And if you’re really trying to fight the humidity, for some types of curly hair, that’s going to give a firmer hold.”
