Who else with curly hair is triggered by the word ‘frizzy’?
It’s a word that takes me back to high school. One day, I was about to talk to my crush, and I was so freaking nervous. In the schoolyard, we locked eyes, and he started walking towards me. I felt like I was about to pass out.
He stood in front of me and said, ‘Your frizzy hair is so cool’.
[Record scratch] Wait, what?!
Suddenly, I did NOT care about the cute boy talking to me. Instead, I wanted to run to the bathroom to look at my so-called frizzy hair.
From that moment, I started an ongoing war with frizz. And my weapon of choice? Anti frizz serums.
An anti frizz serum not only controls the appearance of frizz. It can also help strengthen the cuticle to stop frizz from happening in the first place. Different serums have different advantages and should be used at varying stages of your haircare routine, depending on the outcome you're trying to achieve.
Some anti-frizz serums are most effective on dry, styled hair, whereas others work best on wet hair or before styling. Read on to find out about the best frizz serums you should be using.
Serums are incredibly versatile. Not only can they help hair look and feel healthier and more manageable, but an anti-frizz serum can also nourish or protect hair. Hair serums can be applied to either dry or wet hair, depending on their overall purpose.
What's the deal with anti frizz serums and Silicones?
Most anti-frizz serums are Silicone-based, which means they can build up and dry out strands in the long run. If you have frizz-prone hair, it's likely to be dehydrated, so you should be careful with a silicone based serum for curly hair.
Be sure to incorporate plenty of hydrating products into your haircare routine if you use Silicones regularly on curly or dehydrated hair.
Plus, remember to use a clarifying shampoo such as O&M Original Detox Shampoo every few washes to remove product build-up. This will ensure your hair can still get all those amazing benefits of your anti frizz serums.
