Hey, you guys! I hope your year has been off to an amazing start. I’ve had a slow few weeks due to jet lag and the flu, but here I am, back at it. As you might already know, I have wild, frizzy curls which can be difficult to control in Dubai’s humid weather. I’ve talked in the past about my curly hair method, which I use from time to time to give my hair a little break from blowouts. Lately, I haven’t really had the time or dedication to stick to it and have been back to either getting blowouts at the salon or doing them myself at home. I’ve switched up some products and found a significant difference in the manageability of my hair, not only from day to day, but also when I blow dry it myself. Here are some of the products that have helped me with taming frizzy hair.
1. I’ve always loved Redken shampoos and conditioners, but the Redken All Soft is by far one of the best lines I’ve ever used. It’s exceptionally moisturizing, and I can even feel my hair getting supple while I’m in the shower. It smells incredible, which is always a huge plus for me.
2. There’s a lot of buzz going around in the blogosphere about the Bamboo Kendi Oil, so I had to give it a try. My hair has become so much glossier since I’ve started using it, and I find that it is amazing at taming frizzy hair and giving my curls a softer feel.
3. I get these frizzy baby hairs at the top of my head, and the Pantene Oil Replacement is the only product I can use to smooth them away without leaving my hair oily. It’s also great for freshening up the hair the day or two after a blowout.
4. Finally, and most importantly for me, was switching which brush I use. I was consistently using the bristled round brushes, and while they create beautiful curls during a blowout, they get tangled up in my hair, and my at-home blowout gets messed up a few hours later. After trying the iconic brush, I’m never going back. I get through my blowout in much less time, and my hair looks so shiny and healthy afterwards.
I’d love to hear about any tips or tricks you may have for taming frizzy hair or a good at-home blowout.
