How To Avoid Frizzy Wedding Day Hair

There is an ancient proverb that goes, "A misty morning does not signify a cloudy day, it signifies frizzy hair." If you have the type of hair that "puffs up" when it gets too humid outside, you might be more worried about frizzy hair than rain on your wedding day. August just happens to be Anti-Frizz Month, so it seemed like the perfect time for us at Angelus Bridal & Formals to offer a few tips on how to tame your hair for the wedding day. 

What exactly is frizz? 
"Frizz" is what happens when the cuticle layer of your hair is raised, which allows moisture to pass through it and swell the strands larger than they normally appear. Women with curly hair tend to have more trouble with this than those with straight hair because curly hair is naturally drier. Sometimes frizz is the result of hair damage from heat styling or chemical treatments. How can you remedy this if it happens to you? Try the following tips. 

Find the right stylist.
The most important thing that you can do to assure the best wedding day hair is to find a hairstylist that knows how to handle your particular type of hair. Not all of them are experts at anti-frizz, and if this is a problem for you, not just any stylist will do. 

An expert on your particular type of hair will be able to make suggestions on the best style for your wedding day to avoid any trouble the weather could cause. They can also give you advice on how to properly take care of your hair on a daily basis to keep the frizz to a minimum. You might also consider keeping your stylist on-hand throughout the wedding day to make touch-ups as necessary, or at least have some extra bobby pins and a small can of hair spray close by all night to tackle any "fly-away" hairs. 

Proper Hair Care
The way that you wash, dry, and even comb your hair plays a big part in how it reacts to daily living. Using a sulfate-free, glycerin-packed shampoo is great for hydrating the hair from the inside out. When it comes to using conditioner, apply it from mid-shaft down to the ends. Putting conditioner directly on your roots can weigh the hair down. 

Next, run a wide-tooth comb, not a brush, through damp hair while it is still conditioning. When you're ready to dry it, gently blot hair with a towel, never rub it. This raises the cuticles, which causes more frizz. Lastly, let your hair air-dry as much as possible before blowing it dry. The heat from the dryer can damage it too.  

Condition Regularly
Hot oil treatments and a weekly hydrating mask go the extra mile for keeping your hair from being dry and frizzy. There are lots of products out there specifically made to keep hair looking smooth and shiny. Once again, your hairstylist should be able to give you some excellent advice based on your particular hair needs. Then, the two of you can decide on the perfect hairstyle for your special day. 

Our bridal boutique in South Florida can help you find the bridal headpieces, hair accessories, and veils to complement that perfect frizz-free hairstyle. Once you've picked out your dream dress, one of our the consultants at Angelus Bridal can show you the accessories that bring your beautiful bridal gown up to to a whole new, exquisite level.
