It does not matter what time of year it is, hair Types like me really need some extra love all the time. I have about a month in spring and fall when my hair is not full frizz on me, but in addition to losing my hair with rich balm, my secret is for smoother, smoother and healthier hair.
I can not tell you how long I've been obsessed with Pantene Smooth & Sleek 3 Minute Miracle Daily Conditioner, $ 4! I have probably used this mask for at least 10 years, and I find whenever my hair needs some serious TLC and frizz control, this is my go-to.
If you have nice hair that just needs some love, you can use it as a conditioning mask, but stay away from your roots. Because my hair is thick, has a lot of volume and likes to get lost when it comes in contact with moisture, I like to use it as an inlet treatment. When I have shampooed and conditioner (I always leave my conditioner for about five minutes) I add a coin size of this to my hair while still soaking wet and combing it through my hair with my fingers.
The formula contains 80% more conditioning ingredients than a regular conditioner and because it has crazy high levels of Terminal Amino-Silicones (TAS) that release and plate the outer cells of the hairline to keep the hair protected and reduce moisture loss. To leave this product really helps to define my curls, control frizz and just keep it looking and feeling fresh.
My hair stylist also recently recommended using castor oil in my hair! I have used castor oil as a DIY to thicken and condition my eyelashes earlier because it is packed with fatty acids that can strengthen the hair, but I never thought that the thick structure would work well in my hair. So, I've combined some drops of castor oil with this masking when I apply it, which works very well, and so far I love it.
I would like to know if you have any other hair masks that you recommend to tame frizz – if you have thick curly hair, you know that the match is correct!
