Ever been somewhere and your curls unexpectedly started acting up throwing off frizz left and right?
Of course you have. Frizz breakouts happen all the time when you’re on the go with few remedies on hand.
Frustrating, isn’t it?
Nothing worse than being a victim of your own hair. Cause excessive halo frizz ain’t cute.
The good news is you don’t have to be victimized.
That’s right. We looked into it and discovered there are things that work that you can do on the fly to bring order to the chaos.
Most hacks to get rid of frizz in five minutes or less involve some kind of moisturizing. To offset the dryness curly hair comes by naturally. Either that or you’re using something to smooth the outer layer (or cuticle) of your hair or seal off your strands from humidity.
Now that’s the brief Cliff Notes overview of what you’ll find here.
Let’s bring on the details of the fixes starting with a quick fix for those insisting on knowing…
How Do I Get Rid Of Non Stop Frizzy Hair Fast?
Okay. Gotcha. The frizz has to go. Like yesterday.
So the first fuzz fix is something we call “revitalization fluffing”.
I’m sure you’ve heard of fluffing. But surely not for use when on the run shopping for all you’re worth?
Oh yes it is.
You see the idea is to run into the nearest restroom, flip your hair over and give your curls a good 20 second refluff. Which means you want to:
- Slide your fingers into your hair to the roots
- Fluff … fluff … fluff the roots back and forth with your fingers
- Then pull your fingers out the same way they went in
That last point is key. This does NOT mean you are running your fingers through your curls when removing them. That would be bad.
Want to see the technique in action? Here you go.
The idea is to shake some sense into your curls without disturbing the curl pattern, okay?
The result is a more voluminous finish that helps to hide the frizz.
Revitalization fluffing like this can work wonders to cut down the appearance of excess frizz temporarily.
It encourages strands gone wild and frizzy to blend back in with the rest of your curls. Mingling with the other curls so that if not eliminated the frizz is at least greatly minimized.
But … if doing this with your fingers doesn’t do the trick try a pick. Some report that works when finger fluffing doesn’t.
Simple Tip On How To Keep Natural Curls Hydrated And Moisturized In A Pinch
It’s no secret your curls need to be kept moisturized to look their best.
Or that thirsty curls are often frizzy curls.
So when frizz breaks out it’s only natural that a good first fix is to hydrate.
As on the run home remedies go this trick is quick and easy. All that’s required is another trip to some random bathroom.
- Wet your hands
- Run them ever so lightly over the worst of the frizz
This can calm down curls gone crazy. It works because in addition to hydrating the water will reactivate the products already in your hair. Causing the excess frizz to stop misbehavin’.
An alternative go to? Wet a paper towel and use that to wipe down your unruly locks instead of your hands. That can control things for a while too.
Another quick alternative? Carry an emergency supply of gel or leave in conditioner in a travel sized bottle in your purse. Apply a tiny amount where needed to rescue your hair from the frizz.
This can work like magic when applied mid shaft on down. Especially for those for whom their ends frizzing up is more of a problem than halo frizz.
But the hits keep on coming.
