Taming Frizzy Hair

I have a problem, I was born with thick, frizzy hair and I hate it. I straighten it nearly everyday, but then it goes frizzy and my hair goes big after a week. If I wash it, it's horrible. Please can you help?

Try using olive oil or hair care products designed for black women, they are very effective on frizzy hair, additionally it helps not to wash it every day, 2 to 3 times a week allows for natural oils on your hair to replenish them selves, this makes your hair healthier and helps to prevent breakage when using straightening irons, also a good straight iron for frizzy hair needs to be at least 450 degrees, Wal-mart ones will not work.

A Chi might get hot enough. But, your life will be much simpler if you can get a hair style that complements your hair type. I could suggest a chignon or a bun on top of your head, but these may not be appropriate for your age or lifestyle. I did the bun on top of the head, saved a bundle on hair cuts. Spent a bundle on nice hair accessories.

I used to have super frizzy & course hair, it would get even worse on rainy days!!!! I was complaining to a friend, whose sister was a hair dresser, she told me her sister always recommends a loose curl body wave!!! I know it sounds crazy but it worked!!! She used next to the largest curling rod with the perm and I said goodbye to frizzy hair over 35 yrs. ago. It changed my hair structure just enough that I've never needed another one!!! My hair isn't stick straight either, it still has enough body to fix anyway I like, & I do like my hair..........Good Luck.......TGU
