Baby hairs, stray hairs, flyaway hairs, whatever you want to call them, these pesky little hairs at the root of your part or hairline can cause hair to look frizzy. So, how do you get rid of them?
When it comes to getting rid of flyaways altogether, you’ll need to uncover the root of the issue. There are many reasons you may have flyaway hair; it can be the result of breakage, new hair-growth, static electricity, genes, or frizz. While we’ll help you confront the cause to keep new flyaway strands from arising, your current flyaways won’t just disappear. As with all hair, shorter flyaway hairs will take time to grow before they calm down and join the rest of your mane, but you can tame them in the meantime. If you have damaged hair, you are going to want to strengthen the hair shaft so you can grow long, smooth locks free of flyaways. With the right products and tools, you’ll be able to tame frizzy flyaways once and for all. These tactics will keep your baby hairs and flyaway strands at bay, whatever the reason you have them maybe.
1. Use A Frizz-Friendly Shampoo and Conditioner
Good hair starts in the shower. Frizz is often the main culprit of flyaway hair, so we suggest tackling how to get rid of frizzy hair first to minimize the flyaway hairs you have to manage when styling. The easiest way to do this is by using hair products for frizz in the shower that supply your strands with the moisture-rich ingredients they need.
Insert our No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner, specifically formulated to fight frizzy hair before it starts. The shampoo and conditioner are created with our Healthy Hair Molecule, which provides a weightless shield around each strand of hair to fight the two leading causes of frizz: humidity and friction. By blocking humidity 70% better than silicones and oils, our Healthy Hair Molecule smooths hair texture, leaving hair strands polished and frictionless. It also repels dirt and oil, allowing you to go longer between hair washes, which fights frizz as well. If you want to achieve smooth hair from root to tip, these hair products can help.
2. Detangle with A Wide-Tooth Comb
3. Use A Smoothing Oil
4. Dry Gently
If you are dealing with annoying flyaway hairs, it may be because of broken hair strands from heat styling and tight hairstyles.
Tip: If you can, after using your microfiber towel, air-dry your hair instead of using a blow dryer to prevent heat damage and further aggravating flyaways. If you do choose to blow dry your hair, however, make sure to apply a heat protection spray first to prevent heat damage as much as possible.
5. Use A Pomade or Gel
When you’ve done everything you can to prevent flyaway hair, you can find hair products online to address any remaining little hairs that still sneak up once dry. When styling, tame flyaways with a dot here and there of a handy-dandy pomade product such as our Molding Clay-it’s like magic. Use sparingly, especially on fine hair, to keep hair from losing its volume.
6. Use Hairspray
The age-old trick for taming flyaways still stands, but now we have better products to enhance its effectiveness. To avoid giving your strands a crunchy look, use a flexible, lightweight hairspray such as our Flex Hairspray, which offers a medium hold that is touchable and brushable, so you can mold your flyaways without disrupting them.
7. Embrace Bobby Pins
When all else fails (which it won’t), bobby pins will be your best friend. Use them amply to keep flyaway strands from, well, flying away. Thankfully, visible hair pins and clips are in-fashion, so you can use them to create many stylish hairstyles for frizzy hair. Combine this trick with pomade, oil, or hairspray to encourage hairs to stay pinned.
There may not be one magic solution for how to get rid of flyaway hair, but when you confront the cause from the start and equip your beauty toolkit with products that will tame what flyaways remain, these pesky strands won’t stand a chance.
If your annoying flyaway strands are caused by hair damage, switch to nourishing hair products that will strengthen from root to tip. By switching to the right hair products, you’ll be able to reverse breakage and get one step closer to beautiful, healthy hair.
