For those with naturally curly hair "frizz" can be a problem that they face on a daily basis. If that situation sounds familiar and you're losing your battle with frizz, our hair salon has got  a few solutions to help you wrestle back control of your hair so that you can style it the way that you want.  Our “Cezanne” Smoothing system zaps unwanted frizzies and makes hair shiny without turning it too straight or flat. You won’t have to spend so much time using damaging, styling tools.  It contains no harsh chemicals and is actually meant to improve the overall health of your hair. What actually causes frizz? It's an issue that results from changes in the humidity level, which affects your hair by causing the strands to expand and then reshape. Keep reading to find out how you can combat this issue and enjoy frizz-free hair.

How Do Professional Hairdressers Recommend You Combat Frizz? Here are Our Top 3 Suggestions

We've advised lots of people from Thornhill, Richmond Hill and Vaughan on the subject of frizzy hair and our hairdressers will always tell you that the best way to keep your hair frizz-free is to ensure that it's well hydrated. Here's how you do that and a few other tips to help keep the frizz at bay:

Use Hydrating Treatments - We have a selection of these available in our hair salon and a pre-shampoo treatment is a great way to set yourself (and your hair) up for the forthcoming week. This simply needs to be gently massaged into your hair, covering about half the total length of your hair from the tips, and it needs to be left on for 20 - 30 minutes before being rinsed out. Hair oils can also be used for the same purpose.

Cut Back on Shampooing - Applying shampoo to your hair too frequently can contribute to your problems with frizz, since your hair boasts many natural oils that keep it hydrated and nourished. Shampooing can remove these oils and therefore cause your hair to become more dehydrated. The technique you use is also important. Rather than using your whole hand, use your fingertips to gently massage the shampoo into your scalp, before rinsing it out.

Blow Drying is Better - It comes as a shock to most people when our hairdressers tell them that blow-drying actually helps to prevent frizz. This is because when you leave you hair to dry naturally, the process takes longer and during this time your tresses will absorb the humidity wherever you are and your strands will expand. However, when blow-drying, the heat makes the cuticle close and prevents your strands from expanding and reshaping.
