Shen Hassan from Beautiful Wedding Hair by Shen advises how to beat the frizz at weddings this summer.
She says: "your hair should be in perfect condition to achieve the desired style so looking after it in the lead up to your wedding day is key. Working closely with your stylist will help as they can advise you on the best preparation for your hair. If you have curly or frizzy locks, this can prove challenging. The three main causes of frizz are genetic, damage and humidity. It's caused when the strands are dry and lack moisture. The cuticles are rough so when the weather is humid, the outer layer of the hair absorbs moisture from the air causing it to swell and frizz."
"Some simple tips on managing frizz are:
*Be kind to your tresses - use sulphate and paraben-free shampoos, I highly recommend the Alterna brand.
*Use serums and oils - apply them to damp hair to add a protective layer against the frizz.
*Avoid using sprays that contain alcohol because these absorb moisture from the hair.
*Use a micro fibre towel they are softer and gentler on hair.
*Use silk scrunchies if you tie your hair back.
*Stop constantly touching your hair this can worsen the frizzy texture.
*Use good quality products and make sure you're using the correct recommended amounts and applying them as directed.
*During the summer months, consider having an in-salon hair mask applied followed by a blow dry that will give it a much-needed moisture boost resulting in smoother, shinier locks.
It's worth considering a Keratin blow-dry treatment which is an in-salon hair-smoothing treatment that temporarily coats the outer layer of each strand to conquer frizz and deliver shine. Alternatively, the Nano Smooth Pure Treatment is free of chemical gases and works by smoothing the internal structure of the hair instead of coating its surface. These treatments can last up 12 weeks perfect for your wedding day and honeymoon!
