There’s nothing to say that extra curly and wavy hair can’t be beautiful. In fact, we know that to be true. However, some people simply don’t want to invest all the time necessary to keep unruly hair looking kept together. To that end, here we’re going to look at the steps you can take to bring it under control, both short-term and long-term.
Cut it shorter
One of the easiest ways to deal with hair that’s a little wilder is to have less of it to deal with in the first place. Getting your hair cut might not be the most ideal solution for those who want to keep their hair long, but it’s definitely one way to freshen up your look. It’s then also much easier to take care of frizzy hair. What’s more, it can help you get rid of the dry, dead ends that might’ve started cropping up.
Protect it from the heat
For a lot of women, their hair might be manageable enough until the summer rolls around, then it can be a minefield of messy tangles. Aside from avoiding things like hot showers and using curling irons, you can also make use of heat-protectant sprays that can reduce damage to your hair overall. These need to be applied on a regular basis.
Taking the irons to it
Of course, one way to make your hair much easier to deal with is to get rid of any of the frizz in the first place. Hair straighteners are a tried and true method, but it’s also well known that it’s not the healthiest approach for your hair, either. To that end, you should look up methods of straightening your hair safely. Aside from using the sprays mentioned above, it’s recommended you use the right smoothing conditioners to prepare your hair.
Take a longer-lasting approach
If you don’t want to spend every day sitting down with a pair of straighteners, then there are treatments that can help you make your hair easier to keep straight for a longer time. A keratin treatment is one of the most effective options available. It usually lasts around two to two and a half months and smooths over your hair to make it both more manageable and also to give it a glossy, healthy look.
Style with care
If you don’t want to take as long-lasting an approach as the treatments mentioned above, then you should look at what styling products you use to care for your hair. Hair oils and waxes, especially those that contain argan oil, can make unruly and thick hair much easier to manage and style, while also offering the hydration and nutrition that can help you avoid frizziness and dead ends in the first place.
If you love having hair that’s more natural, then, by all means, rock it. However, if you would rather settle things down a little, then hopefully the tips above can help you. It’s all about what makes you feel confident about your own look.
