How To: Transform hair from frizzy to smooth

Transform hair from frizzy to smooth

Do you watch women with sleek and shiny hair with envy? Now you can transform your frizzy hair into a silky smooth style. This isn't magic and does take a little more time than toweling dry. But with a few products, a blow-dryer and a little extra time in the morning you can achieve this look.

Step 1: Start with the right shampoo

To achieve all-day smooth, start with a conditioning shampoo that penetrates hair to the core and helps protect each strand from breakage. A conditioning shampoo will also help align the strands, reducing the inter-fiber spaces that can make frizz seem even more unruly.

Step 2: Use a smooth conditioner

Apply a moisturizing conditioner; it's important that your shampoo and conditioner work in unison. Conditioner lubricates the hair surface, providing a barrier between your hair and the environment – helping to lock in good moisture and keep out the humidity that causes frizz.

Step 3: Rinse and blot

Rinse your hair thoroughly. Then, gently blot excess water from your hair with a clean towel. Aggressive towel-drying can damage cuticles.

For a gentler option, try blotting hair with a cotton T-shirt.

Step 4: Repel moisture

Apply a leave-in cream with humidity protection.

Step 5: Dry it

If you want to keep your curls, use a diffuser, scrunching the ends as you dry. If you want a straight look, blow-dry it until it's 95 percent dry and then blow it out with a brush. With either texture, smooth just the ends with a curling iron or flatiron for a more finished look.

Make sure your hair is completely dry before you leave the house; if it's still damp, it may absorb moisture from the air, resulting in frizz.

Step 6: Freeze it

Help lock in your smooth look with a hair spray formulated to keep out frizz; its fixative polymers will help keep each hair in place. Once sprayed, refrain from unnecessarily combing, brushing, and touching your hair.
