In this weekly column, Hairloom stylists tackle your toughest hair questions.
Question 1: What can I do to reduce frizzy hair?
Managing your frizzy hair starts with the cut.
A skilled stylist will know not to layer your hair too much, as this will accentuate the frizziness and cause your hair to take on too much volume. You might also want to ask your stylist to avoid the razor cut/thinning methods too – these methods reduce the weight of the hair, causing it to curl and frizz.
Now this is where styling products like wax and other moisture-based hair tamers come in. As frizziness is exacerbated when your hair shaft is dehydrated, using alcohol-free hair products will help hair stay smoother and shinier. (Products that contain alcohol tend to dry out your hair.)
Another common quick fix is not shampooing your hair too often in a week (i.e. daily), which could be really tough for Singapore’s hot climate! The natural oils in your hair will help to keep the frizz to a minimum. But a person with days-old unwashed hair might not be very popular, no matter how straight and shiny it looks. Still, you might want to give it a try by using dry shampoo, which is applied by parting the hair and sprinkling it on your scalp and roots. Dry shampoo removes oiliness and gives your hair a dry & fresh feeling.
Question 2: Are there any face shapes that should stay away from bangs?
Here is what we believe at Hairloom:
Fashion is freedom: as long as your personality carries off the cut – there’s no hairstyle you can’t rock with attitude!
In other words – nope!
