After nearly a lifetime of fairly smooth, sleek, straight hair, my tresses have been done in by all the recent rain and the thick-as-pea-soup humidity in the air. That, coupled with the fact that I have allowed a decent amount of gray to creep into my hair, and you have a recipe for out-of-control frizz. I read somewhere that gray hair is more wiry and less sleek than pigmented hair, so if that’s true, it explains a lot. So does that mean if I get my hair completely (and professionally, ha!) colored, the frizz will diminish somewhat?
My teen will be a high school senior starting this fall, so I’m thinking of biting the bullet, getting it colored by a pro and maintaining it well until we get the child off to college. Then I’ll regroup and consider the best way to go gently into the gray zone.
But in the meantime, to fight the frizz, I’ve tried several heavy-duty conditioners and an argan oil shampoo and conditioner already. Those helped for a day or so after my shampoo, but then the wild, Bozo-like tresses came storming back. What’s a girl (or guy) to do? Someone mentioned John Frieda’s anti- frizz line but I’ve not been able to get that yet. I’m hesitant to try a serum or oil that you put on clean, dry hair as I don’t want to look greasy, but at this point, I’m willing to keep a very open mind.
Anyhoo, here’s hoping that you all know of some good smoothing products or some tips that I can use to help keep my hair sleek and out of the frizz zone. Thanks, and everyone have a great week!!
