Tame frizz with a toothbrush and hairspray.
Using hairspray to control frizz is a delicate balancing act: use too little and it doesn’t make much difference, but spray too generously and you’ll end up with unpleasantly stiff hair. In order to make sure you have just the right amount to tame frizz, spray an old toothbrush with hairspray and run it over those pesky flyaway strands. It’ll hold your hair in place without turning it into a helmet.
Use a boar bristle brush for shine.
According to hair stylists, boar bristle brush through your hair while you blow dry will help move natural oil from your scalp to your ends. That means that you’re naturally taming your hair and giving it more shine.
Use dry shampoo before you go to bed.
If your hair needs a wash but you know you won’t have time to do that before work or school in the morning, apply dry shampoo before your head hits the pillow at night. The shampoo will work itself into your strands overnight, resulting in clean, healthy-looking hair in the morning
When curling, start with the middle of your hair.
To get full, long-lasting waves using a curling iron, start from the middle instead of the end of your hair. This helps your hair stay wavy for longer.
Use aluminum foil to help curl straight hair.
For anyone whose hair has trouble holding a curl, try dividing your hair into segments, curling each segment around your finger, and folding it up into aluminum foil squares (the size of the squares will depend on the size of the waves you want). Heat each piece of foil for about 20–45 seconds, wait for the foil to cool, and remove. Use hairspray to hold hair in place if necessary, but in many cases, you’ll find that the curls hold all day.
Get your hairstyle to stay using cool air.
When you’re styling your hair, don’t just rely on warm air from your blow dryer. Set that blow dryer to cool and alternate between warm and cold air in order to best set your style.
Pat moisture out of wet hair with a towel.
When you get out of the shower, gently pat your hair with your towel to get out extra moisture. Don’t rub your hair with the towel—this leads to frizz.
