Joel Schlessinger MD shares how to deal with frizzy hair in the summer

Summertime means heat, humidity and other factors that can cause frizzy, unmanageable hair. To combat frizziness, you can use products and techniques that create smooth, silky hair. Joel Schlessinger MD shared some tips with Today Style that will keep strands manageable in the summer heat.

Joel Schlessinger MD recommends that you skip shampooing every day.

Your scalp naturally produces oil which helps condition hair and shampoo strips this oil from the scalp. Shampooing every day can actually be detrimental because it dries out strands which makes them more prone to frizz.

On days when you do shampoo, use a sulfate-free formula that will not dry out hair. At least once a week, use a deep treatment mask such as Rene Furterer KARITE Intense Nourishing Mask to keep hair smooth and less prone to frizz.

After shampooing and conditioning, protect your hair against heat and humidity, says Joel Schlessinger MD.

Blow drying and heat styling hair makes your strands more prone to breakage and damage which leads to frizz. Always apply a heat protectant such as Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Heat Protect Spray before you begin styling your hair. The formula protects against damage and creates a sleeker, smoother style.

Once you’re done styling, avoid touching your hair as much as possible. Constantly fixing your hair throughout the day can cause frizz which is harder to deal with once the hair is dry. Just apply a lightweight hairspray and let your hair be.
