How To Get Rid Of Frizzy Hair
In this four-minute long video, Matt Stopps, a hair stylist with the RUSH Creative Team, shows you how to tame the frizz and give your hair lots of nice shine.
Today, I'm going to show you how to tame frizzy hair, so, this is my model - see, the hair's quite frizzy. So, the first thing is first, we need to work out what products to use, so I'm going to use some of the Kerastase L'Oreal Elixir serum which is going to help me smoothen the hair, give some really nice shine, so I'm just going to apply that. I'm just applying the product through to the ends and then into the middle, avoiding the roots.
I don't want to make the hair too greasy. Right, so I'm just going to section off the hair. Take medium sized sections, of course, the thickness of your hair will determine the sections, so if you've got really thick hair, you want to take slightly smaller sections and you're going to get a cleaner finish.
If you've got finer hair, you can take slightly bigger sections. So the trick with taming the frizz is to always have the hair dryer facing down, with the nozzle going down the hair shaft and that way the light is going to reflect off the hair and you are going to get a lot more shine. You also need to make sure you've got a good brush where you can get a lot of tension.
It's important to avoid touching the hair with the hair dryer because you don't want to burn the ends of your hair, so have the nozzle just off the hair. So just keep working your way up the head, taking section by section, just drying it like I showed you - just make sure the nozzle is always facing down, so you're going to take out the frizz. It's really important to get good tension on the brush and that way, you're going to pull the hair straight and take any frizz.
Alright, so now we've smoothed out the hair somewhat. I'm just going to grab the irons and give the hair a run-through and that's going to smooth it out and give it a really nice shine. So I'm just going to apply a little bit more of the Elixir serum, just through to the ends of the hair, and that's going to help me with any static and give me a lot more shine.
So when I'm using the irons, I'm just pulling down quite slowly, just applying a little bit of pressure. It's better to go through once or twice slowly than to keep going over your hair over and over like that, because you're really going to damage it and dry it out. Just take a little bit more time at the ends, and turn it under very slightly and that's just going to give you a really nice finish.
And that's how to get your hair from frizzy to straight, giving it loads of nice shine. So it's really simple, it's just, section your hair off, go through with the hair dryer, make sure your nozzle is always facing downwards so you're going to get a lot of shine, and you're getting a good amount of tension on your brush. Once you've gone through and tamed the frizz, you can go through with your irons, maybe slightly larger sections, and just take your time with the irons, don't keep going over the hair, just once or twice, and at the ends just slow down and turn it under a little bit and that will give you loads of nice shine. .
