Lazy girls deserve to look good too! If you're sick of having frizzy, dry hair, we have five simple tips you can do to get smooth, shiny locks with little effort!
Keep reading to check them out!
#1 Sillicone-free shampoo
Silicones in shampoo create a temporary look of smooth, shiny hair, but actually forms a layer around the hair shaft and prevents moisture from penetrating. It's also notoriously difficult to wash out, so as it builds up with continuous use, it can lead to hair that's dry, brittle, flat and greasy.
Look for silicone-free shampoos instead like the Lux Luminique Moist Charge shampoo ($16.90). The range contains hyaluronic acid - a frequent inclusion in skin care that gives your hair a shot of moisture.
Another silicone-free shampoo is The Body Shop's Strawberry Clearly Glossing Shampoo ($15) that is enriched with mouth-watering Italian strawberries. It's a 100% vegan formula that adds shine and helps detangle for soft, sweet-smelling locks all day long.
#2 Leave conditioner on longer
Dryness is one of the main causes of frizziness so don't skip conditioner. It keeps your hair cuticles hydrated so it doesn't take in moisture from the humid surroundings, swell up and frizz.
Condition your hair every day and leave it on for one minute so it can penetrate your hair. Try the Dove 1 min conditioner range which is a step-up to regular conditioners for healthy, shiny and smooth hair.
#3 Try not to use heat on your hair
Hair styling tools like straighteners, curlers and blow dryers will create a salon look but the heat can damage and dry out your hair. If you really need to use the blow dryer, wait until your hair is at least 75% air-dried before using it, and use the cooler setting.
#4 Avoid alcohol in your hair products
Look through the ingredient list of any hair product and stay away from any that lists alcohol on it, especially high up on the list as that means it has a higher concentration of it. Alcohol dries up your hair and causes frizz!
#5 Apply hairspray to your comb
Before combing your hair, apply some hairspray on your comb. This will tame any flyaways while still giving your hair a natural look that looks product-free.
Try to use a boar bristle brush instead of a plastic one. Brush your hair every day as it distributes natural oils from root to tip to keep your hair hydrated and smooth.
