frizzy hair


When it comes to hair, frizz is the ultimate nemesis for women, and sadly most get discouraged and lose the battle- especially in the summertime. However, if you arm yourself with the right tools and knowledge for the battle, you can beat the frizz!


Here are some major causes for the frizz, and how to avoid it: 


1.) Avoiding Styling Products

Women tend to avoid styling products like the plague, but many do not realize that products are essential in order the combat the frizz. Most women who refuse to use products view it as “high maintenance” for their normal hair routine. What many may not realize is that there are many products that can be used with their  normal routine. Depending on the product, they can be added before allowing your hair to air dry, or they can be added right before or after a blow-dry or flat ironing, or sometimes even an evening conditioning product to leave in overnight. Krave Salon Stylists recommend Moroccanoil® Treatment Original. This product is very versatile, it can be used as a conditioning, styling and finishing tool. Moroccanoil Products are made from REAL Argan Oil, and are rich in shine-boosting vitamins and proteins.


Moroccanoil Original Treatment


Women also shy away from products because of the price. However, having damaged, dry and unruly hair can be more costly down the road than shelling out a few extra bucks on a great product that works.



2.) Using the Wrong Products

This is especially common with women who have curly hair. Just because the product says it’s for “curly hair”, does not necessarily mean it’s for your curl type. Although every curly girls’ hair is a little different, Krave Salon has found that Moroccanoil’s products for curly hair has great benefits. Moroccanoil carries a variety of products specifically for curly hair types, some being lighter and heavier than others. Ask your Krave Salon Stylist which one would be best for you!

 Other times due to pricing, women will “cheap out” and buy less expensive shampoos and products, not realizing that those cheaper products could have damaging effects. Many cheaper shampoos and products  contain harmful chemicals or drying ingredients such as alcohols that will create adverse effects. Looking for products with more nourishing ingredients, and less drying ingredients can make a world of a difference. Having nourishing shampoos and using conditioners sets a great base to taming frizzy hair. Moroccanoil® Smoothing Shampoo and Moroccanoil® Smoothing Conditioner are great products since they have amino acids in them to boost your natural proteins that will lead to better, manageable hair.  


3.) Not Using the Product Correctly

Okay, so you consulted your stylist and you spend big bucks on great hair products, but you are STILL struggling with the frizz. That is probably because you are not using the products correctly. All hair products have explanations on the back to get the best results from the product. Not following or understanding the directions will lead to misuse of the product, and could leave undesirable or disappointing results. Always consult your Krave Salon Stylist first not only on what products to use, but how to use them. Psst… you can even ask for a demo on your own hair!


4.) Heat Damage

So you like diffusing your curly locks, or you desire the look of long, sleek, straight hair? Well, heat applied to hair is a big cause for frizzy, damaged hair. Throw in some humid weather on top of that and you’ll be looking like bride of Frankenstein. To prevent damage to your hair, use a heat protecting serum or spray on your hair before blow drying or straightening. Also, you can follow up with a light serum or spray after to really get a shiny, smooth look, or lively, bouncy curls.Try a few drops of Moroccanoil® Treatment Original in your damp, towel dry hair. Blow-dry and straighten as usual. Then, rub a few more drops in your palm and evenly, lightly run fingers through hair. OR, follow-up with a great product for frizz: Moroccanoil® Frizz Control. Lightly spray it in hair to finish your routine.


Moroccanoil Frizz Control

Controlling the temperature of the heat, and using proper brushes and techniques can also cut down on frizz. Your Krave Salon Stylist can give you a few pointers to take home with you!

5.) That Darn Mother Nature!

Sometimes, it’s only the weather to blame. On those days, you can use an anti- frizz product to help reduce the amount of frizz caused from the weather. Moroccanoil® Frizz Control works great to combat the frizz on those hot, humid, summer days.
