Problem: The dog days of summer are upon us and coastal chicks know it's no time to mess around with styling. With curly, frizzy hair living in New York City, I have no choice but to come up with a formula for smooth, bouncy curls.
Proven Solution: Start in the shower with John Frieda's Frizz-Ease Curl Around Style Activating Daily Shampoo ($5.39 @ Drugstore.com). My favorite part? It cleanses without stripping away moisture, so my curls have a fighting chance. Step two: towel dry and slather on Alterna Hemp Repair Conditioner ($21 @ Skinstore.com), a formula made with hemp seed oil for shine, silt for detangling and fennel to act as a UV guard so your color won't fade. Next, rinse and style. I use just a dab of Bain De Terre's Recovery Complex Anti-Frizz Shine Serum ($12 @ CosmeticMall.com) mixed in with Sunsilk De-Frizz 24/7 Creme ($3 @ Drugstore.com). The touch of silicone helps smooth the hair shaft and adds shine without weighing it down. The slight hold from the creme helps create mega-bouncy curls that last all day. Scrunch while blow drying with diffuser and you'll be heat and humidity ready without the frizz!
