How to Control Frizz on Your Winter Holiday + Winter Sun Giveaway

Now winter is on its way your hair is probably used to the cold, rainy weather here in Britain but once you step off that plane on your winter holiday this year into the heat and humidity of lands afar, the chances are frizz will attack. 


Even if you’re lucky enough to escape the heat then, by the time you’ve been in and out of the sea you’re almost certainly going to fall victim to flyaway hairs and messy tangles. So what can you do to control your frizzy hair whilst you’re away on holiday this winter? Here are my top tips on how to tame those locks and maintain the perfect hair on holiday. 

Hydrate Your Hair 
Damaged, dry hair usually means that the cuticles of your hair have been raised and it is this damage to the cuticles that cause your hair to appear frizzy. To help combat this problem, make sure that you’re using a moisturising shampoo and conditioner and try using a hair mask to help re-hydrate your locks.

Use What Nature Gave You
Your hair contains natural oils that help to combat frizz without even having to touch a bottle of hair care product. Avoid washing your hair every day to allow the natural oils to do their thing and use a boar-bristle hairbrush to help distribute these oils across your hair evenly. 

Don’t Over-Style Your Hair 

Being away on holiday gives you the chance to bathe in the endless sunshine, take a dip in the hotel pool or even splash around in the crystal blue sea. But all that sun exposure, chlorine and sea salt, unfortunately, isn’t so appealing to your poor hair. Understandably you want to glam yourself up as you hit the town in the evening but the trick to escape frizz is to not style your hair too much. 

Avoid blow drying your hair and if possible, try to find a style that suits you that doesn’t involve any heat styling at all. If you’re lucky enough to get natural beach waves, enhance these curls with a sea-salt spray or even use specially designed curly hair products to help add more shape and definition. If your hair can’t be tamed so easily try a simple up-do or an easy plait to keep your hair away from of your face.

  2. I actually use this brand alot , I am natural blonde after self home dying my hair about 8 years ago and going to the salon they dyed my hair from blonde to nearly black resulting in my hair being damaged and it started to snap , i have since grew my hair our of the dye colour and never ever coloured it since , blonde has helped me to keep a natural looking lightened blonde in my hair x

  3. This is a great post, I have recently had my hair restyled, and the past few days I have had major problems with the natural oils... I will be looking into a boar bristle brush as this I think may help the issue.

  4. I first thought how nice it would be to jet off somewhere warm at this time of year but then I realised I'd much prefer going to somewhere cold and snowy to get even more in the Christmas spirit than I am already!

  15. I have crazy frizzy hair and I avoid styling and over-washing as much as possible but never heard that about a boar-bristle brush - might have to be my next step! :)

  17. Great tips, thanks! I find my hair slightly better during winter time than summer when they're actually a bit more frizzy. I hate wind and rain though...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Great tips there, especially for the hairstyling rule. So many women style their hair daily without knowing how much damage that does to them! Eeek!
    I entered the competition :)
