How to prevent frizzy hair
How-to tips, tricks, and best hair products to prevent frizzy hair recommended by Hair Professionals at Spencer’s Hair Designs.
Understanding what causes frizzy hair
Knowing how to avoid and to understand what it is that causes frizzing hair is just as important as which products to use, and how you can protect against hair damage, especially in the summer months. Hair that is healthy and maintained is the best way to prevent frizzy hair. Frizzing hair comes from dry hair. Overly dry hair will absorb the moisture from the humid air causing the outer hair shaft to swell and even create the outer cuticle to distort. This condition causes hair strands to turn every which way but smooth.
Summer is here, time for beaches, pools, sunbathing, and all those outdoor activities that will take you into the elements such as salt-water, chlorine, and UV exposure which can all cause hair to frizz.
Try these tips and tricks to help prevent hair frizz, damage, and even how to avoid them.
Keep your hair trimmed.
It’s essential to trim your hair at the start of summer. Freshly cut ends will rid your hair of split ends and possibly prevent more extensive damage that would require more hair cut off than desired after summer.
Protect your scalp and hair color
Protect and cover your hair as much as possible, whether you are spending the day beside the pool, at the beach or on a boat. We recommend using a UV protectant for your scalp. Wearing a lightweight scarf or hat for your hair will also protect your scalp and hair color from fading. Our stylists recommend Kenra Color Charge Serum, and Brazilian Blow Out leave in sealants that repels humidity.
Summertime hair tips and tricks
This summertime before getting into a swimming pool or ocean water one way to prevent hair from absorbing chlorine or sea salt is by thoroughly wetting your hair with tap water or bottled water first. In addition to saturating your hair with water, that will hydrate your hair in the heat. A quality leave-in conditioner can also protect and shield your locks from harmful UV and water elements. After bathing, be sure to rinse your hair again with fresh water to remove traces of chlorine or sea salt. After shampooing skip the blow-dry, flat-iron, and curling iron.
Letting your hair air dry naturally using Kenra Platinum Air Dry Crème, or sport a loose braid are both excellent ways to prevent further damage brought about by using hot tools in the summer.

Brazilian Blowout Vs. Keratin Treatments
Brazilian Blowout and Keratin treatments are somewhat similar in that they both smooth, reduce curl, debulk, and defrizz hair. The main difference is Brazilian Blow Out is more flexible. It significantly loosens tight frizzy curls but keeps movement and body to the hair. Hair can be shampooed with no wait time. Ponytails and hair accessories can be used immediately after the Brazilian Blowout service. Whereas the Keratin Treatment requires you to keep hair in the same styled position when leaving the salon and wait three days before your next shampoo. It can create straighter results.
