Hair experts reveal their ultimate tips for styling and caring for frizzy hair
Kate Leaver, Freelance Editor
My hair is crazy-thick. Like, wild and frizzy and out of control. My hair wears me. I got it from my mama, who could get away with it in the eighties, but not so much now. I do not style it: repeat, I do not style it. I lazily chuck about a litre of hair oil into it from time to time, but otherwise I just throw my head upside down and rough-dry it for as long as I can be bothered. My untamed mane laughs in the face of most hair products; they do nothing. The usual “anti-frizz”, “smoothing” things are simply no match for what grows on my head.
You’re meant to put 3-5 pumps of this goo into towel-dried hair and work it through roots-to-ends with your fingers. I’m obedient and do as I’m told, but because I have the hair of three normal women, I help myself to a few extra blobs. I pull my hands through my hair as best I can, though doing that I usually risk losing my fingers in there for good. I flick my hair upside-down and blow-dry it until it’s dry to the touch.
Then, I do my secret weird hair ritual, which is whipping it into a bun and securing it with a bright yellow scrunchy while I put my make-up on. It’s how I give my hair some time-out after the blow-dry, which tends to make total chaos of my head. By the time I let my hair loose around my shoulders, I notice a genuine difference in its feel. It’s smoother. It’s smaller. It’s sleeker. Frankly, compared to my usual hair, it feels like pure, expensive silk. It looks like I might’ve actually blow-dried it properly, doing that thing where you divide it into sections and smooth it out using a round brush like they do at the hairdresser.
I walk around all day long, telling people about this little bottle of miracles. This feeling technically does last 72 hours, as promised, and that’s about how long I leave my hair between washes, so it works for me. I am practically showered in compliments, by which I mean that I put a selfie on my Instagram stories and women DM me heart-eyes emojis.
I want to bathe in this stuff now; just fill up a bathtub and wallow. I want to buy a lifetime’s supply. I want to kiss the men who invented it. All of which is to say: it’s very good.
