TheBeautyPlace.com Trend Alert: Embracing The Frizz

Frizzy hair at Marc Jacobs

Here in TheBeautyPlace.com offices, we refer to “frizz” as “the other ‘F’ word.”  And, as our home-base is Miami, Florida, our hair succumbs to the not-so-positive effects of humid heat all too often.

So, we were slightly amused to hear that some of the world’s leading hairstylists (such as Orlando Pita and Guido) have taken on the mission of inviting women to embrace the fuzz by making it bigger and better than ever.

“Say what?!” We hear your cry?  We KNOW!  We reply.  We couldn’t believe it either.  But, having reviewed the runways we can tell you: it’s true.

And here, our essential five products for embracing–and rocking–the frizz.

 

  1. Thickening Lotion:Apply to damp hair to give body and texture.  We recommend BioSilk Thickening Creme.
  2. Volumizing Mousse: Apply to damp hair to give hold.  We like Big Sexy Root Pump Plus Volumizing Spray Mousse.
  3. Dry Shampoo or Texturizing Spray: Spray on dry hair until you get a chalky, powdery feeling and then tease.  One of our faves is CHI Infra Texture Dual Action Hair Spray.
  4. Boar-and-Nylon Hairbrush: Adds volume and fluff when used for teasing.  It’s also less damaging than a comb.
  5. Hairspray: Spritz your favorite hairspray (we like TIGI Catwalk Your Highness Firm Hold Hairspray) on a brush to help tame flyaways, or spray directly onto teased hair to help maintain height.

Wash your Hair on the Go

Sometimes you may go longer than you would like between hair washes. Maybe its because your schedule gets extremely busy; maybe you need to wait to wash your hair when you know you have enough follow-up time for styling; or maybe you are trying to preserve your recently-done hair color. Dry shampoo is an alternative to a regular wash with hair shampoo and water. Dry shampoos usually come in the form of a spray or a powder; aerosol sprays are the easiest form to use. Just make sure not to spray it too close to your target to avoid leaving behind a sticky texture and to avoid unnecessarily long drying-time.

I’m not recommending that you give up washing your hair with water and regular hair shampoo or anything. Dry Shampoo is just convenient to have on those days when you have to make an unexpected stop after working out at the gym or you’re running late for a meeting and your hair is looking flat and oily. The TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo is a citrus-scented spray that is great for adding volume to your hair as it leaves behind a light hold. The TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo absorbs oil, odor and buildup of hair styling products.

Everyone has hair styling products that they swear by. A dry shampoo is an extremely convenient item that should be added to that list. The main benefits of dry shampoo are:

  • Less probability of dried, weak hair and faded color
  • Instant – It’s like washing and drying your hair in just seconds
  • On-the-Go – Ideal for quick touch-ups
