The main reason why frizzy hair often looks brittle and confused is dryness. On the one hand, this hair type generally produces little fat, on the other hand, the small amount of sebum rarely penetrates into the tips through the many small curls. Therefore, you should take care to add moisture to the hair at every opportunity. This is the only way to get it under control: in addition to shampoo and conditioner, creamy leave-in products with active ingredients containing lipids and vegetable oils are ideal.
If the care also contains elastin, this gives the little curls more bounce and definition. “For frizzy hair, I always recommend a coarse-toothed comb,” explains Manuela Kopp, hair expert at Guhl. “A brush takes the curls from their definition and plumps them up.” Her SOS tip for on the go: “Put some hand cream on your fingers, rub and go through the hair. This brings order back into the curls and tames even fine strands. “
If you gently squeeze the curly after washing with a towel, untangle it with a wide comb and then let it air dry, it looks best. If the hair is long enough, it can be easily tied or stuck together, because thanks to its structure, it attaches itself to one another and holds well. Styling creams, which lie over the hair like an umbrella and thus ward off rain and humidity, protect the hair from frizz. They also make it easier to comb and define even the smallest curls. “Personally, I would advise against gels to fix the styling,” said Andreas Wild, John Frieda’s senior stylist. “They make the hair stiff.” He also considers moist sprays to be counterproductive because their liquid texture can promote frizz. Wipes with an anti-frizz effect are ideal for on the go. They resemble small wet wipes and soothe with vegetable oils, such as lavender. Simply gently rub it over your hair.
If you have naturally straight hair, you shouldn’t waste your time with curling irons and curlers. “In contrast to other types, hair fibers that are evenly round in cross-section are difficult to curl permanently with heat,” says Manuela Kopp. What makes hair a real eye-catcher is shine. And you get that through a particularly smooth surface and these three care steps: First, the hair fiber must not have any keratin gaps – the natural building blocks of hair. With keratin-containing shampoos, cures and sprays, small deficits are made up for. Secondly, the hair should be well hydrated so that it does not look dry and brittle – a treatment with nourishing oils helps here. If the hair is well nourished thanks to these steps, it must be sealed with a conditioner regularly after washing and also after every spa treatment. This is the only way the active ingredients supplied can be stored inside the hair. Light that hits the hair is now optimally reflected and creates a great shine.
Accurate cut, clear contours and shine – that characterizes the styling of perfectly staged, straight hair. So that neither heat nor fine dust can attack the surface or statically charge the hair, you should put a blow dryer with heat protection in the towel-dried hair before styling. For very long hair, you can apply a neck volume spray or a foaming agent. Then pull the hair down over a paddle brush and blow dry one strand at a time. If the result is not smooth enough, you can still work on individual sections with the straightener. “I always spray a fine hairspray on the finished sleek look that gives a delicate shimmer,” recommends Andreas Wild. Products with argan oil, for example, provide this noble-looking shine extra. If the hair loses control and shine during the day,
Too much, too wild, too heavy. Thick hair is a dream for many, a real challenge for women who have it. So that it shows itself from its most beautiful side, it should fall lightly and smoothly. A basic requirement for this is a good moisture supply. But a lot of hair doesn’t automatically mean a lot of product. Even if you don’t suspect it: too much care lies on thick hair like lead. Therefore, care should not be applied directly to the base and only moisturizing oils in the lengths and tips. When it comes to washing, expert Manuela Kopp advises: “Thick hair is as greasy as fine hair, but you can’t see it as quickly. You should take advantage of this and wash your hair only once a week, because the hair’s own lipids nourish them naturally. ”If you spray sprays with vitamins into towel-dried hair, this improves combability. And because it dries slowly – lightly and do not blow dry at high heat. A hair dryer with adjustable temperature levels is ideal for this.
Because thick hair is inherently heavy, it tends to hang weak or stand wild in all directions. “To prevent this, a step cut that lends lightness and zest is ideal,” says Andreas Wild. By the way, regular lace cutting is mandatory, because split ends are responsible for ensuring that the hair can easily knot into each other. Cream products for styling and fixing are usually best because they make the hair supple. They define the hair without making it look like a helmet. In addition, they do not stick the hair as strongly (like wax) and give the look a natural look. If the products contain polymers (which make the texture more flexible), they wrap around the hair fiber like a light film and can thus protect against frizz. Important is, Only apply the styling products in small quantities, otherwise they weigh down the hair. A hairspray should have a very fine mist and only a medium hold so that the hair maintains its dynamic momentum.
If a single strand is not wider than 0.04 millimeters, the hair is considered thin. However, you do not have to measure: If you can wrap your cable elastic three times around your head, you already know that you are one of the finer types. For such people, the formula for happiness for a great look is: volume, grip and stance. “Because thin hair is particularly close to the scalp, it greases faster and has to be washed more often,” says Manuela Kopp. Volume shampoos are ideal for this. If you do not use conditioners, the hair remains slightly roughened and can no longer slide past each other so easily, which gives them support. Cures that build up the hair from the inside would do you good, but are usually too rich. “Anything too much overwhelms and weighs down thin hair,” explains the expert. Light spray cures with minerals and proteins that give the hair a good grip are better. Special neck volume products pump the hair up and give it a stand-up from the root. Sprays are easier to work into thin hair than gels.
