What are flyaways? Those annoying fuzzy, stray strands of hair that pop up along our hairline and make our hairstyle look unkempt. They're quite annoying, especially when we want to achieve a sleek and smooth finish. Even with a good hair care regimen, we all get flyaways from time to time, so it's important to know how to lay these little buggers down when they arise!
Here are a few easy tips to tame unwanted flyways:
A hairspray not only makes your hairstyle stay put for longer wear but also comes very handy in taming pesky strands of hair. Mist your hairbrush with a generous spritz of hairspray and run it through your loose hair. This will not only tame loose flyaways and cowlicks but also keep them in check throughout the day.
If you are wearing your hair in an updo, spritz some hairspray on your palms and gently smooth out the product on the problem areas. This will take care of the annoying flyaways without tampering your updo.
Frizz Remover Cream
Frizz removing creams also help to combat flyaways and keep your loose strands well behaved throughout the day. If you're styling damp hair, work in a small amount of frizz remover cream through your tresses before blow-drying them. This will not only address the problem of stray strands but will also leave you with smooth textured hair.
Prevention is Better than Cure
While hairsprays and frizz remover creams help to tame flyaways when they arise, it's important to think of ways to prevent them altogether. Choose a shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair type. Oil your hair every week to keep your strands softs and hydrated. Treat your mane to a weekly restorative mask to avoid the occurrence of flyaways and frizz.
Last but not the least, don't over heat-style your hair. Excess heat strips your strands of moisture, makes them look dry and coarse and causes flyaways and cowlicks. If you must use a blow dryer, a flat iron or a curling iron, make sure you mist your hair with a good quality heat protectant spray first.
Here's hoping that these tips will help you keep flyaways in check and manage them when they arise!
