Smooth Wavy and Frizzy Hair

Being able to smooth wavy and frizzy hair is as easy as having the right tools on hand.

When I let my hair air dry it turns into a tangle of twists, waves, and frizz. Smoothing it down is a daily battle but one I have come to master by always keeping two key tools in my hair kit. The trick is straightening the hair halfway down before curling the ends. This ensures that the hair near the head falls flat and even throughout.

For the quick steps, simply keep reading:

1 / Grab your favorite heat protectant spray and it mist it through your strands. If you are using hot tools ever day you definitely want to use this right along with them.

2 / Separate the hair at the top of the ear and tie it off with a hair band. Using the straightener, slide it from root to mid shaft to smooth out the frizz.

3 / Reach for your favorite curling iron (I love the 1 1/2″ barrel), and with a 1″ section of hair curl the hair away from the face from mid-shaft down to the ends.

4 / Release the curl and let it hang down to cool.

5 / Repeat steps 2-4 for the rest of your hair.

6 / When working on the top section, start the curl at eye level which is the most flattering. To create a looser wave, hold the curling iron in for less time and leave the very tips of the hair out. How to Smooth Naturally Wavy Frizzy hair 1

    that’s what my hair does too when i let it air dry. the straightener is always my best friend. i use it for curling my hair too but i do need a new curling iron though.
