Invest in tools that won’t cause damage to your hair
Heat styling tools are typically the number one culprit when it comes to hair damage. This is because exposure to heat-even for a few minutes- can cause your hair to become drier. It can also cause colour to fade. So, what can you do to combat this? The answer is to invest in tools that won’t damage your hair.
The Dyson Supersonic hair dryer prevents heat damage by measuring air temperature over 40 times per second and regulating the heat. As a result, this tool helps to protect your hair’s shine. Since this is a product inspired by professional hairstylists, it’s a must-have to incorporate into your everyday elevated haircare routine. Although it’s a splurge item, the technology and design behind the product were created to give you a smooth, salon-style finish, at home.
Pro tip: when drying your hair, be sure to use a paddle or round brush and angle your hair as well as the tool downwards when drying, in order to prevent frizz. You can also use a lightweight, non-greasy finihsing spray, such as the amika Top Gloss Hair Shine Spray. This will help give your hair the ultimate glossy finish. It also works to fight frizz, while keeping hair color vibrant.
Minimize frizz with affordable products
Frizz is a result of damage to the outer cuticle protein layer. This can be caused by things such as daily heat styling or contact with environmental stressors. It’s important to find products that actually work to actively prevent and treat frizz. This way your hair can always look and feel its healthiest.

As a result, it allows you to achieve natural, effortless-looking styles- across all hair types. Your hair will look and feel visibly smoother thanks to the product’s unique protein blend. Strengthening hair from the inside, out, ingredients such as Almond Protein, 18-MEA, and Jasmine Flower work together to produce a frizz-blocking formula. This is a must-add to your hair care routine if you’re in need of a shower duo that protects against frizz and humidity while smoothing strands and promoting natural body movement.
