Curls are Divine, but Frizz is Not Fabulous.

So, what is the key to having beautiful curls with out the frizz? Do you want no frizz hair? Then you need -Proper Home Maintenance. It goes way beyond a simple shampoo and conditioner. When the heat rises,and the humidity is off the scale, you can almost guarantee that you will have a Bad Hair Day. If you don't select your products wisely your hair could be a disaster.
With so many products and tools out there, how can you decide what is perfect for you?
Ask your stylist! Yes, I said ask your stylist. Beautiful hair is our job. Stylists who are serious about their career are willing to stay up to date with the most current products, trends, ingredients and regimes to help your hair look its best at all times.
Hair is fiber. It behaves like fiber, some hair is soft and silky, and other hair may be rough and coarse. That doesn't mean one is better than the other, it simply means different hair types will perform differently. For example, when you want your soft hair to hold curl, you have to starch or stiffen it, but if you stiffen it too much it becomes stiff and crunchy, no one wants stiff, crunchy hair. This is where pliant strength comes in. The trick is to get the fiber to perform the way you want it to.
Pliant strength is a gage on how easily the hair can bend; how flexible supple and adaptable the hair is.
How much conditioner is needed? If you are using a quality product, you only need a small amount. After you shampoo and rinse well, towel blot the hair to get the excess water out, then add the conditioner, comb through and leave on 3-5 minutes, it takes that long for the cuticle of the hair shaft to close down again, and this will help to keep the frizz down. There is no such thing as an instant conditioner. Rinse out, and then apply your styling product, comb through and style as desired.
Product cocktailing is an excellent way to build your pliant strength without overdoing it. Selecting the right cocktail for your hair type will make your hair smooth, bouncy and frizz free.
With so many products out there in the market place today, it is really hard to keep up with all of them. It is so very important to keep the hair in the best condition possible, especially with all of the new fun color trends, that can really take a toll on the condition of the hair. I, as a professional stylist, personally recommend working with one product line at a time until you know all of the ups and downs of the line, the ingredients, how they perform and what type of product works best with the specific hair type.
