I totally support the argument that people with frizzy, uncontrollable mane should have support groups. Over the years I have ranted endlessly about the devil called humidity and how it works to make me look like a giant ball, courtesy the frizzy hair. Over the years, I’ve seeked support of those bearing the brunt of the so-called ‘Monsoon’ working to possibly drench every effort put into the needed damage control. And over the years, I’ve also seeked remorse in many a shelf products to work their magic and bring about the necessary ‘frizz control’ but to not much success.
But this year, all I decided and did was to really embrace my frizzy hair and grant them the freedom and the character they deserved to be. Finding ways to work with the frizz, and not against it, completely changed my outlook towards my hair. Keep scrolling to see four different ways to help you embrace your frizzy hair!
When I say embrace your frizzy hair, it’s all about making your hair texture work for you. My hair, being thick and wavy, completely poof up during the humid weather months and all I do is apply a few drops of baby oil to tame them into gorgeous, voluminous mane.
Straw hats, beanies, berets, baker boy caps, sailor hats are what we folks need to be thankful for. They help curb the extra action while making up for a statement accessory on the go. And before you know it, the frizz was your best-friend all along. Okay, best friend might be an exaggeration. Moving on!
A forever go-to for me will have to the low pony tail. I usually run my fingers through my hair using a styling product like the John Frieda Frizz control serum (Shop) and then using a rubber tie to secure the hair together, at the nape of my neck. I like to brush out a few strands to frame my face and that’s it. You get your perfectly imperfect messy pony tail in no time and it looks super chic. To fancy it up, you can also tie a scarf like me!
The final look that never fails is to opt for a sleek side plait. I always feel that plaits add a subtle contradiction to your regular contemporary look and work perfectly to control all that humid volume. Much like the pony tail, I always brush out a few strands to frame my face and that’s about it. To add to it, there are so many different ways to plait your hair so you have more options than one to choose from.
So what’s it going to be for you guys? Don’t you think it’s time we grow out to loving our frizzy hair? Do drop a comment and let me know your thoughts. I shall be waiting!
