Why does my hair get frizzy?
Your hair will get frizzy based on the condition of your hair and the climate of your surroundings. If your hair is dry and damaged, you will be prone to frizzy hair made worse by humidity, cold, wind and rain. Dehydrated hair has porous cuticles with loose scales which swell up when the weather is humid. Hair will look dull and frizzy. The cuticle of healthy hair has tight, smooth scales, giving it a shiny, smooth and controlled appearance.
How do I get healthy, shiny and smooth hair?
Hydration and protection are your best solutions. Stephan, Color Specialist at the Leonor Greyl Institute explains, “Smooth hair has perfectly aligned scales which reflect light like a mirror. The healthier and more hydrated your hair is, the more beautifully reflective it will be.”
Hydrate your hair regularly using products which offer deep treatment that slowly penetrate and repair the hair fiber. Masks are rich in water and oil and an easy way to give hair the nourishment it needs. They are your best allies in the fight against dehydrated hair. We recommend our Masque Orchidee for thick dry hair, Masque Fleurs de Jasmin for thin dry hair, and Creme Regeneratrice for damaged hair. For a deep conditioning treatment we recommend Masque Quintessence to achieve long-lasting softness, shine and easy styling. Every time you shampoo, remember to follow after rinsing by applying a teaspoon-sized amount of your mask / conditioner from root to tip to give your hair instant softness and shine and make it easier to control.
In between washings, spray hair with Tonique Hydratant, an easy to use hydrating mist that will help plump your hair with energizing ingredients. This product will help very dry or curly hair look healthy!
Avoid the ‘straw hair’ look. When using heat tools, keep your hair healthy and silky by always using heat-protectant styling products, we recommend our Lait Luminescence. Apply a small amount to wet or dry hair and style. Hair will stay hydrated and protected from static and frizz all day long. Don’t forget, a small amount of product goes a long way!
Which styling products are best for my hair type?
If you have fine or normal hair, opt for Sérum de Soie Sublimateur and its hydrating silk proteins which create a protective barrier around the individual hairs and instantly smooth hair without giving it that heavy look or weighing it down.
If your hair is thick or curly, choose Éclat naturel, rich in shea butter and jojoba oil. It tames even the most unruly hair.
Be careful when using silicone-based styling products. They give hair a heavy, coated look. Do your hair a favor and try natural products which use oil bases and plant proteins when you want to protect and smooth your hair. Natural products are usually less greasy and more effective long-term.
