How to Fix Poofy Hair

Step 1

Wash and condition your hair. Products for dry, damaged tresses are exactly what you need to fix poof and calm tresses. They hydrate your hair and replenish lost nutrients and proteins to give you healthier looking hair.

Step 2

Leave the conditioner in. With your wide-toothed comb, gently detangle your hair. Start at the bottom and carefully work your way up. Never brush your hair when it's dry. Brushing breaks your hair and causes extreme frizz. Rinse once your hair is nice and smooth.

Step 3

Blot excess water from your hair using a towel. Forget about rubbing or wringing it. Too much aggressive toweling can cause hair to poof out. Just give it a gentle dab.

Step 4

Mist your hair with leave-in conditioner. Leave-ins give thirsty hair an extra dose of hydration and help with manageability and shine.

Step 5

Allow your hair to dry naturally. Avoid hair dryers -- heat causes damage that contributes to poofiness. Instead, let your hair gradually air-dry.

Step 6

Scoop out a pea-sized amount of smoothing balm. If you have longer hair, use a grape-sized amount. Rub the balm between your hands then massage into your hair starting at the tips and working your way up. This coats your hair giving it incredible shine, control and softness.
