Fighting Frizz like a Pro
Frizz is a very common hair care problem that occurs when the hair absorbs moisture from the surrounding air. The added moisture causes hair to swell, altering its shape and causing it to form irregular bonds along its surface. Those bonds are what makes strands begin to coil, kink and stick up in all directions. Salon frizz-fighting styling aids work by limiting hair's ability to absorb moisture. When you apply one, it forms a barrier over the cuticle (outer covering) of the hair, so moisture can't easily get through. Some professional frizz-fighting styling products also help to repair flaws in the cuticle, which makes each strand smoother to give you an overall sleeker look.
Enhancing Shine with Salon Formulas
Straight styles look much more attractive when hair has a noticeable shine. That's why many stylists apply shine-enhancing styling aids to their clients' hair in the salon. These products contain ingredients that reflect light to give even dull, damaged tresses the illusion of a healthy sheen. Some shine-enhancing styling aids also fight frizz or strengthen damaged hair, while others are used solely for improving hair's luster.
Find the Perfect Formula
As you shop for salon smooth and sleek styling aids, it's important to consider your hair type and texture. If your hair is dry, a cream or lotion can provide you with moisturizing benefits while giving you a smoother style. For an oily scalp, choose a lighter product like a serum or spray. Mousses, serums and sprays are ideal for fine and thinning hair, which can be easily weighed down by thick creams. You can read the product descriptions to learn more about the formulas.
