Bye, Bye, Buhaghag! Frizzy Hair Struggles and How to Deal With Them

Because buhaghag hair is a total nightmare! Here are common problems caused by frizzy hair and easy ways to deal with them. 

Ever noticed how girls in shampoo commercials have long, shiny, bouncy hair that seems too good to be true? Well, it is too good to be true because nobody’s hair can be that perfect. The truth is, most people have imperfect hair, and that’s absolutely fine! When you live in a country that’s hot and humid, frizzy hair becomes part of life.

We know the struggles of a frizzy-haired girl all too well. And if you’ve lived with crazy, frizzy hair all your life (like most of us here) we bet you can relate. Raise your hand if you totally get it!

1. Finding the perfect cut that will flatter your hair is tough

With frizzy hair, you’ll need a haircut that will work with your hair’s texture. Try a wavy layered bob or lob or a haircut with side bangs. These haircuts give you that natural, tousled look so your frizz looks like it’s part of your hairstyle. 

Editor’s tip: To make your mornings less stressful, wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner that are formulated to tame frizz and make your mane more manageable, like Tresemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner. These products are formulated to help transform your hair, making it feel gorgeously sleek with less frizz, straight, and easy to style.

2. A messy bun hairstyle is your soulmate

Want to put your frizzy hair up? Go for a messy bun. Your hair already looks messy so it shouldn’t take any effort at all to achieve this look.

3. Getting ready in the morning takes some time

You can’t just go out and let your hair air-dry naturally because humidity will wreak havoc on your already frizzy hair! Allot a few minutes for a quick blow-dry so your hair won’t have a life of its own by lunchtime. If you’re really pressed for time, sport a sexy wet look for the day.

4. Formal events and important occasions require serious hair planning.

Your hair is too complicated it needs a game plan. But you don’t need difficult hairstyles to make sure your hair behaves while you’re clinking champagne glasses or eating your five-course dinner. Even a simple chignon can look neat and polished as long as you finish it with hairspray that can smooth out frizz. 

Editor’s tip: Whether you love waves or braids, finish your hairstyle with a few spritzes of TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray. Its humidity-resistant formula can help you make your hairstyle frizz-free and long-lasting. And the best part? It won’t leave a sticky residue on your hair!

5. A good hair day seems like a farfetched concept

It’s not entirely impossible to achieve, though. Getting hair mask treatments once a week can help tame frizz. Also, hair serums and leave-in conditioners can also keep pesky frizz under control so it won’t ruin your hairstyle.

Editor’s tip: Need to refresh your locks? Apply a drop of Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream to make sure your hair stays soft, smooth, and shiny all day. 

The struggle is real, ladies. But this doesn’t mean that frizzy hair will continue to ruin our looks forever. As long as you stock up on anti-frizz hair products and you get a haircut that works for you, you can bid pesky frizz goodbye.
