Your quick fix is silicone. This is now added to specialist products from shampoos and conditioners to gels and "drops" and simply coats your frizz prone hair, smoothing the surface. These products can even be used on fine hair prone to frizziness as the silicone oils are very light and will not weigh it down. Often marketed as "non-chemical relaxers" they are not permanent and will not damage your hair. The drops and finishing oils in this group of products are extremely concentrated so only small amounts are needed, normally only a "drop".

If you are only prone to an attack of the frizzes during humid or damp weather, try a finishing product designed to make your style last longer as it will protect your hair from climate changes e.g. hair spray.

Over the long term keep these points in mind:

  • Keeping your hair in good condition is the only real long-term fix for the frizzes. Try a once a week moisture treatment to put back what your hair needs internally and special conditioner for curly hair.
  • Eat a diet rich in protein (fish and nuts) and essential fatty acids (vegetable oil).
  • Use little or no heat on your hair. There are hairdryers with cool settings specifically for your type of hair.
  • If you do blow-dry, use a thermal protector. Also when blow-drying angle the flow of air from roots to ends to keep the surface of your hair smooth.
  • Go for non-permanent colour rather than highlights and permanent colour.
  • Perms will generally exaggerate the problem rather than help it.
  • Never brush or comb your curly hair when dry as this will make it more frizzy. Simple detangle with your fingers. Comb out the knots when wet though!

Danielle Vassey of Session's salon Sydney says, "the best thing to de-frizz your hair is a Sebastian 2+1 treatment that has been baked into individual sections using flat/straightening irons". This in salon treatment would take about an hour all up and just image the great massage that comes with it!
