How to Get Rid of Frizzy Hair After Straightening

By Kimberly Caines

Controlling frizzy hair can be the difference between having glossy, straight hair and having frayed, dry strands. Whether you use chemicals to straighten your hair or a hair dryer and brush, maintaining straight hair is challenging. When your straightened hair absorbs moisture from the air, the cuticles lift and frizzy hair emerges. Knowing how to treat your hair after straightening it and using the correct products is essential in avoiding frizz.

Washing hair with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner helps keep frizz at bay.

Step 1

Spray a baby hair detangling product into your hands.

Step 2

Rub your hands together and run your fingers over the frizzy parts of your hair. The detangler smooths down the hair cuticle and eliminates the frizz. As an alternative, spray a shine or straightening serum on a flat paddle brush and run the brush over frizzy hairs to smooth them down.

Step 3

Avoid combing or brushing your dry hair after straightening it, because this frays the hair cuticle and may trigger frizz. Finger comb your hair instead.
