Textured hair is a plus. No doubt about that. It’s easy to style, and therefore more fun to play with. What isn’t fun is frizzy hair. Having textured hair doesn’t have to mean having dry hair with flyaways and no shine. It should be the exact opposite. It should be soft and glossy. Voluminous hair with texture is a dream to work with and a privilege to own.
Despite our best efforts though, sometimes (more often than we’d like) our hair defines us and kinda goes all over the place. This usually comes in the form of frizzy hair.
There are many reasons why this happens. Thankfully, most of these reasons are either treatable or preventable. Check them out below:
Lack of moisture: It’s winter. Time to do everything you possibly can to make sure your hair is moisturized and protected. The drop in temperature can dehydrate your hair and leave it dry. An oil treatment once or twice a week is an excellent way to keep your hair moisturized for a couple days. Our cult-favorite Phytoelixir Oil has been soothing dry hair for years now. It’s rich in Vitamin E and ultra-nourishing oil yolk with a blend of camellia and karanja oils. This protects the length of your hair fiber. Leave it on for 10-15 mins before showering and notice the difference immediately.
Your shower routine: We know that one of the few things that make showers bearable is a nice warm shower. We also know that most of the time, that warm water is actually just scalding hot water. How do we know this? Because that’s why your hair and skin are getting dry. The best way to shower during the winter is to compromise a little. Begin showering with warm water and use an intensely moisturizing shampoo like Phytoelixir Intense Nutrition Shampoo and Phytoelixir Cleansing Care Cream. The warm water will open up your hairs cuticles and allow the shampoo and cream to work their magic. When you’re rinsing off both products, however, switch to cold water. That will seal in all the moisture and leave your hair feeling incredibly soft.
Post-shower routine: Once you're done with taking care of your hair in the shower, the next step is to help all your hard work stay put. Your hair is at risk of losing moisture when you towel dry it, begin styling it, and finally, step out the door. The dry air puts it at risk of losing moisture once more. Which is why we recommend you hydrate it once after drying/before styling and once more before stepping out. The Phytodéfrisant Anti-Frizz Smoothing Balm is one of our many dual-purpose products. Distribute it evenly by using a wide tooth comb on wet/damp hair. It smoothes over your hair and makes it softer with a combination of Ferule, Horseradish & Sage. These three ingredients make way for the perfect blow out. Plant Mucilage adds moisture by forming a layer against the heat. The product is heat activated, so it kicks in the minute you start to blow dry your hair. Finally, add a lightweight leave-in treatment that works throughout the day without adding any grease. Enter, Phytolisse Serum. The Althea Extract softens and shines your hair while the Mallow extract will provide hydration throughout the day.
