Curly hair can be super hard to manage as the humidity and temps rise in the summer. Luckily, we’ve got a celebrity hairstylist (who has worked with Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz) spilling her frizz-fighting secrets!
I love seeing stars like Reese Witherspoon and Zendaya rocking curls on the red carpet, but for those of us without a glam squad, too often curls equal a frizzy nightmare. Here are 5 top tips for getting perfect curls and avoiding frizz this summer.
Lona Vigi, a Nexxus New York Salon Care celebrity hairstylist who has worked with Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore, Leslie Mann, Cameron Diaz and many more celebs tells HollywoodLife.com readers how to care for curly hair:
“1. Grab a leave-in conditioner because a frizz-free style has moisture. Moisturizing the hair will tame frizz and keep it in great condition.
2. Stick to anti-humectant products to help reduce frizz. I also like to use light gels because I know they’ll hold the hair and define the curl.
3. Apply product evenly throughout which will help in creating a more structured curl all over. Apply product on really wet hair and comb through with a wide-tooth comb, making sure that each strand is coated equally to ensure that the curl will dry with consistency.”
How To Tame Frizz
Lona tells HollywoodLife.com:
“4. Don’t use a blow-dryer on humid days — adding heat can create frizz. Try air-drying your hair more often and you will notice a difference in the condition of your hair over time.
5. If you have thick, curly hair, use a deep-conditioning shampoo and conditioner. I recommend Nexxus New York Salon Care Therappe Rebalancing Shampoo and Humectress Restoring Conditioner.”
