In the salon, at home and when you’re out and about, here are the strategies to finally free yourself of frizz.
Straight, curly or wavy: when it comes to frizzy hair, what matters is not so much the texture of the hair but rather the hair’s condition. In fact, frizz is mainly caused by a lack of hydration in the hair, which may depend on a careless haircare routine, frequent use of heated styling tools, repeated chemical treatments, but also a natural predisposition of the hair. When there is a lack of hydration, the outermost part of the hair, the cuticle, opens, creating that messy effect, typical of frizzy hair. And to top it off, when the climate is very humid, the hair fibre tends to get even frizzier. That’s why the thought of how to tackle frizzy hair affects everyone, from when the weather announces a chance of rain on the day we would like to look our best, to when we (finally!) learn how to make our hair look perfect with straighteners. When it comes to frizzy hair, remedies and solutions almost always have to do with maintaining the right hydration within the hair fibre.

Frizzy hair: what to do at home.
The use of products for frizzy hair that are specific to maintain hydration without weighing the hair down, comes into play during the haircare routine at home. In order to maintain the results of salon treatments for longer, the milk_shake® k-respect product line was created, consisting of shampoo, conditioner and a protective smoothing spray. All three of these products for frizzy hair are based on hydrolyzed keratin, which acts by integrating the hair fibre, and contain precious natural and organic moisturizers such as babassu oil, which replenishes the lipid component of the hair, buriti oil, particularly rich in vitamin A, and muru muru butter, which waterproofs the cuticle by counteracting the absorption of moisture.
When washing your hair, in addition to using a specific shampoo, it is important to avoid using hot water which could dry out the hair shaft. And how should you dry frizzy hair? By limiting stress to the hair, i.e. long exposure to heat sources, is the general rule (for all hair types, in fact). An effective way to do this is to wrap wet hair in a towel and wait a few minutes before turning on the hairdryer, so that excess moisture is absorbed by the fabric and drying with a hairdryer is thus much faster.
The remedies for frizzy hair are also simple gestures of daily life that go from nutrition to the… sleep! In fact, to hydrate the hair from the inside right to the tips of the lengths, it is important that your diet includes the right portions of fruit and vegetables, the foods that have a higher water content, in addition to the proverbial 2 litres of water a day. As for the pillow, on the other hand, sleeping with your head resting on a linen or cotton pillowcase involves friction that can cause frizz. To avoid this, silk pillowcases or wrap the hair in a silk scarf before going to sleep.
Frizzy hair: what to do when out and about.
If we go swimming in the pool, or the sea, after each swim it is good to remember to rinse your hair with fresh water to remove chlorine or salt, which tend to dry the hair and open the cuticles.
Applying a specific protective product after washing is an additional anti-frizz guarantee.
