Wash and condition your hair with a shampoo and conditioner proven to tame unruly frizz. Finish with a blast of cool water to seal your hair’s cuticles and persuade it to lay flat.
Gently squeeze the excess water out of your hair using a towel. Don’t rub or you’ll ruffle up the cuticles, which is an invitation to frizz.
Apply a water-based smoothing product to damp fine tresses so you don't weigh it down. For medium to thick hair, use a straightening cream to seal in silkifying moisture. For extra ease when styling, add some gel to the smoothing cream. The gel will hold your hair in place as you style it.
Separate your hair into sections and blow dry. To repel frizz, point the nozzle down the hair shaft to persuade the cuticles to behave. Run a flat paddle brush down each section as you dry to achieve a straight look. If curly is your calling, dry each section with a round brush.
Finish off a straight ‘do with a flat iron to lock in the style. Mist with frizz-fighting hair spray to give your hair an added helping hand throughout the day.
Banana Hair Mask
Mash a whole banana in a medium mixing bowl. Add half an avocado to the mix and squish that in with the banana. Mix together well.
Apply to your hair. Start at the roots and run it through to the tips, piling your hair on top of your head when it’s saturated.
Cover your hair with a shower cap — yes, just like the one your granny used to wear — and leave it on for 10 minutes. The shower cap locks in the warmth that naturally radiates from your head. This heat helps the mask penetrate your hair more deeply than it would sans cap.
Take off the shower cap and rinse the banana/avocado mixture from your hair with cool water. Dry and style as usual.
