Written by Sanya HamdaniApr 29, 2020

Most women don’t really look forward to days when they have to wash their hair. Why? Because it usually ends up making their hair look like a lion’s mane. However, have you ever stopped to think about why that happens? Well, for starters, it has got a lot to do with the steps you follow once you are out of the shower. From the way you dry your hair to the technique you use to detangle it — anything could be responsible for making your hair frizzy. But, there’s a way to prevent this from happening.

Ahead, useful tips to follow to prevent frizzy hair post-shower.

Step 01: Avoid combs and brushes

Use your fingers to remove tangles; avoid brushes and combs as they create friction which can damage the strands and invite frizz. Freshly washed hair is fragile and susceptible to breakage; using combs and brushes will only cause hair fall. This works for all hair types — straight, wavy as well as curly.

Step 02: Only dry the roots

If you have to use a blow dryer, first apply a heat protectant like the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray, then use the blow dryer to only dry the roots. Use the diffuser attachment while doing this, especially if you have curly hair. This will ensure the shape of your curls stay intact.

Step 03: Use a cotton t-shirt to soak water

Avoid using a towel to rub or soak water, no matter how gentle, it will create frizz and damage your hair. Instead, use a cotton t-shirt to pat dry the rest of your hair, it is gentle on the hair and won’t lift the cuticle, thereby controlling frizz.

Step 04: Apply serum

Lastly, apply a smoothing serum such as the TIGI Bed Head Control Freak Frizz Control And Straightening Serum to the length and tips of your hair. It fights humidity and leaves hair looking smooth and silky. Perfect for all hair types, this serum can be applied to both, wet and dry hair before styling.
