Want to know the ultimate secret for frizz-free, gorgeous hair? Its simple… Don’t fight your natural texture–work WITH it!

Frizz is one of my clients’ biggest complaints. I always tell them to work with what they’ve been given. If you have wavy or curly hair, all you need is a little serum to tame your tresses. Don’t straighten your hair…embrace your texture! Besides, if you straighten it, humidity will just coax it back into a curl or wave–it’s a losing battle.

To get the most out of your hair and ensure that you stay frizz-free all day, just follow these simple steps:

  • If you have straight hair, use a blow dryer with the nozzle attachment (to direct the heat on one section at a time) and a round barrel brush, pass over hair section by section to help smooth and seal each cuticle of hair.
  • Finish your style with a lightweight hair spray to help keep loose ends in place.
