I too really enjoyed your Sirius show, and look forward to your return to radio or podcasts! Your advice is fantastic and I've learned a lot.
Now I am facing a new problem ... I had straight hair until I turned 40. At 40, it became curly/wavy. Now I'm 45 and welcome the curls/waves, but by lunchtime - I'm frizzy. I dry with a diffuser, use a macademia-oil based cream prior to drying, and then use Tres Semme Curl Activator before drying. I finish with a light coat of lightweight hairspray.
When I leave the house, all is well. By lunch, I would like to put a bag over my head, LOL.
Any suggestions you have would be really appreciated.
To address an issue like this, you have to start by looking at the haircut, which may not have the right shape (causing the hair to not dry in a good overall form), or maybe your hair is over-texturized, causing the ends to frizz. Your stylist can over-texturize your hair with scissors, cutting into the ends too much, which make them too airy/light and making them easily frizz when exposed to any humidity.
Your shampoo and conditioner are just as the important as your styling products. Styling your hair actually starts in the shower. the Oleo-Curl line by Kerastase is great for dealing with issues like yours. When styling, skip the diffuser and twist your hair instead. In the enhanced ebook version of my book, there's actually a video on how to dry hair by twisting it (I use my sister as a model). In general, I go into much more detail about this topic in my book.
Also, when styling, skip the hairspray and use this product instead. Just leave it in and let your hair air dry. It's great for curly hair!
Hope this helps.
Thank you so much for this Eva.
I also have the same hair problem. Although mine is caused by different DIY hair treatments, which has damaged my hair a lot. And now, I have to deal with a dry and frizzy hair everyday!
Use best shampoo and conditioner to maintain you hair in a good condition all day.
