Bridal Beauty: Is There Salvation for Frizzy Hair?
Q: I'm getting married in July in Houston. The problem is that my hair is really wavy and tends to frizz when it's humid. How can I keep my wedding hair under control? I'd like to blow it out and wear it straight but I'm afraid the second I step outside it'll explode into an unruly mess. Help!!
A: Don't let your waves get you down. To take the wave out and fight frizz, you need to use the right styling tools on your wedding day : a large, round brush; a product that will smooth the hair shaft and and add some shine (try Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon or John Frieda's readytowear Shaping & Glossing Balm, both available at drug stores nationwide); and some hair clips. When blow drying, start with a small section of hair from the nape of your neck. Secure the rest on top of your head with the clips. Start drying at the roots, following the length of hair with the round brush and the dryer. Don't be afraid to pull the hair up a little -- be sure to hold it taut with the brush. Continue until the section is completely dry before moving on to the next section. When you've finished drying your entire head (be patient, this may take a while), apply the finishing balm to smooth down any stray hairs and add moisture. This should hold your straight hair in place and add a little shine. Done!
