Big Question! I am mixed, I am African American Caucasian and Native American. I have shoulder length hair, which I straighten with an instyler, that is frizzy to the point of an afro when its humid. I also like to wear hair extensions and when its humid or rainy outside it doesn’t blend at all. I was wondering what products I could use in my hair or what I could do to stop it from frizzing. I want my hair to be tame and blend in with my extensions on even hot days. Thanks so much!

Hi Brianna, Have you tried a smoothing system, not relaxing? This will make the hair less prone to frizz, easier to style and less affected by humidity.
Make sure you are using moisturing products that will help smooth and soften and always comb the conditioner through before rinsing.
You can also get hair sprays that claim to be humidity resistant, definitely worth trying. Good luck
|Nikki asks: |
Please can you recommend products for hair with greasy roots and dry ends?
|Answered By: |
This is a very common hair complaint, particularly for women with finer hair. Avoid the temptation to reach for clarifying shampoos in a bid to strip your oily scalp, as these will only make your dry ends worse.
Start with a shampoo that addresses oily roots, removing excess sebum and purifying the scalp, while nourishing the lengths and ends. Kérastase Specifique Bain Devalent £19.50 treats oily roots, but replaces lost moisture from any sensitised areas and drier ends, helping hair fibres to regain softness and shine. Only massage shampoo in to your roots, and let it cleanse the rest of the hair as you rinse the product out.
When it comes to conditioning, look for a fairly light conditioner, that won’t weigh down greasier roots and limp locks, but one that is still rich in moisturising ingredients. Kérastase Soin Premier Therapiste £22.90 is a lightweight conditioner for damaged hair – so it repairs dry damaged ends, but without weighing down finer or oilier hair. This particular product can be used either before or after cleansing, so adapt its use according to your hair’s needs each week.
The ends of your hair are the oldest part of the hair length, so have been exposed to far more damage. They need protection from further damage to avoid drying out further and this product actually acts like a gauze on the hair fibre, protecting it from further damage and really nourishing any dry ends.
If you want to invest in extra products, look out for a pre-shampoo mask, designed to absorb scalp oils using natural clays, which won’t strip your hair of moisture. You could also try adding a lightweight oil, such as Moroccanoil Treatment Light £13, 45, to your routine, using it on damp hair after washing and conditioning, but sticking to the ends and lengths and avoiding the root area.
|Aaron asks: |
My name is Aaron and I’ve been growing out my hair for at least 9 month’s and my goal is to reach 3 years of hair growth. Unfortunately at the moment right now my hair is medium long as in, the back of my hair is long and reaches to my shoulder and my sides cover half of my jaw line but my front is still short. The main problem is that my hair is curly wavy and extremely frizzy and no matter how much I try to maintain it there is always those extra bits of flyaway hair. I shampoo my hair every 2 or 3 days because my scalp is were dandruff occurs most often. I have tried finding products that decrease frizz like conditioner or leave in spray but so far nothing has worked and the pain hurts so much when it’s a very windy day and my hair ends up looking like a total bush or birds nest. Please give me any tips of how to get rid of this uncontrollable nonsense please!

Hi Aaron, This is a tough one because you seem to have tried most of my suggestions! Have you considered having the unruly front relaxed a little, so one of these new smoothing systems but only to relax the natural curl? I would have some off the back and sides too, this will make the overall shape of your hair look better and then you will see the front is growing but not quite as fast as the back. Try taking a hair supplement as well this will help the hair stay strong as its growing and provide vital nutrients. Good luck
