I have frizzy hair. How can I get my hair straight and bouncy? My hair straightens out for about a month after a perm and then it’s back to frizzy. I want my hair to move when I move. Any suggestions? –Evelyn
Make sure you are using a relaxer that promotes moisture as a benefit and use the conditioners provided with the system. Frizz is often caused by loss of protein and moisture inside the hair strand and loss of cuticle protection on the outside of the strand. Deep conditioning can help restore your strands’ internal structure. Use a protein-based conditioner to help fill and smooth any damaged areas. Follow up with a moisture-based conditioner to soften, seal and keep hair flexible.
