1. Go with the flow.

Believe it or not, it’s totally ok to go with the flow. If you failed to protect your hair from the harsh weather conditions, don’t worry. Use your hands to enhance the look to your liking and you’ve got a style! For curly girls, pluck the roots up for height. If you have wavy hair, finger comb your hair in a zig-zag motion to amplify the look of your texture.

3. Create intentional frizz with texturizing products.

According to Bailey Pope, In-house Consulting Stylist | Creative Director TIGI Salon Unilever North America, texturizing products can help with creating intentional frizz. Products like salt sprays are ideal for creating this kind of texture. Work a salt spray like Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray throughout your hair and style to your liking. On the other hand, you can use a texturizing balm like the Bed Head by TIGI Joyride Texturizing Powder Balm to help you create the bed head look of your dreams!

4. Prevent frizz with a leave-in conditioner.

We’ve preached the benefits of using a leave-in conditioner. But let us preach about two options that are currently controlling our frizzies. For textured hair, we’re totally into Suave Professionals Honey Infusion 10-in-1 Leave-in Conditioner. This creamy product not only moisturizes hair but also helps keep frizz at bay. For straighter hair types, opt for Nexxus Humectress Luxe Lightweight Conditioning Mist which can help you prevent dry frizz such as static.

The key to a great braid these days is texture. One idea is to style your frizzy hair into a fun and chic braid! Here’s a fun trick: After creating your braid, rub it through the palm of your hands to create more frizz. Set your final look with a strong-hold hairspray like Dove Style & Care Strength and Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray.
