I Embraced Frizz For A Week This Summer

As a child, getting a hold of my personality wasn’t that big a struggle as much as comprehending my wriggly-wiggly mane. Back then, curly hair equaled an unruly mane. It called for instant taming. And in my dictionary, the only tabooed ‘F’ word stood for frizz. Thus, abandoning my natural texture for a sleek, polished mane went without saying.
Truth be known: You can fool yourself, but not your head full of dreadlocks. No miracle potions, straightening mechanisms or frizz fighters could detangle away my pain. A meltdown was imminent, and now that I look back, it meant letting go of my social anxiety and moving on to curlier pastures. Thank heavens! Accepting my big hair wasn’t an overnight switch either but it gave me more time in hand. Then, the more I let my spirals spiral, the less crazy they seemed to get. It was also my chance to stand out amid the sea of straight, easy locks.
Although overtime I hit the soft spot, living insouciantly without an excuse in sight. Unfortunately, its lost my knack to experiment. Therefore, as a wake-up call this summer, I took up a week-long challenge. To embark on a frizzy journey that’s versatile and fuss-free.

Here are the hairstyles for frizzy hair, ready to roll?

The start of any week spells the rush hour. Which is why washing my hair with BBLUNT Intense Moisture Shampoo + Conditioner the night before made sense. That it’s enriched with H2O is advantage for rough, dry hair like mine. Finally, OGX Moroccan Sea Salt Spray ensures that my locks don’t lose their luster. I spritzed it on the way out.
Mane thing: Your hair will never look the same way twice.


No need to wash my locks already, I planned to tackle the flat mane with back combing. The Kent KS04 Back Combing, Volumising, Up-dos, Dressing Out Brushwas sleek enough to slip in my purse. Which came handy when I wanted to go from loose tresses in the AM, half ponytail at an office meeting and bombshell pony later at night. I also set it in place with Wella Professionals EIMI Perfect Setting Light Setting Lotion Spray.
Mane thing: The second you decide to put your hair in a ponytail, there’s no turning back.

To pull through one last day before my next care treatment, I gave my lackluster coils a boost by crimping them with Ikonic Professional Titanium Micro Crimp. I also decided to celebrate frizz by brushing out my defined zigzags. And dabbed Streax PRO Hair Serum Vita Gloss to evade knots.
Mane thing: No matter what, don’t run your fingers through your hair incessantly.


By now, come hell or high water I needed to wash my hair. And after all the stunts I’ve been pulling off, a deep conditioning treatment L'Oreal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium Masque was what the doctor ordered. While layering Kevin. Murphy Body. Builder Volumising Mousse on damp hair created smooth, big curls.
Mane thing: Every morning is like a box of assorted chocolates: You never know what you’re going to get..

To ring in the weekend with élan, I tested the wet-and-dry style that’s been ruling the runway. I parted my hair in the middle and generously slapped on OMORFEE Nutrify Hair Oilin the crown section. This also put the groovy in my weekly champi. As for the rest of my locks, I let it take its course.
Mane thing: Curls are an attitude. Wear them smartly.


Stepping into #SocialSaturday with serious amounts of sass, I couldn’t escape this night without a quick cleanse. Then for that bombshell bounce, I rolled thick sections around BaByliss C325E Medium Hair Curler in Beige & Blackand brushed it out with Tangle Teezer Compact Styler Handbag Detangling Brush in Pink. A side-swept parting with teeny Missy 3 X Twisted Crystal Maroon Hair Sliders added finishing touches. P.S: Don’t do this without your heat protection mist and setting spray.
Mane thing: Frustration builds when one side is curlier than the other. It’s ALRIGHT.

On the laziest day of the week, I decided to scrunch and pull my hair back in a messy bun. Usually I do it with U-pins, but Elite Models Fashion Hair Forkgave me a firmer grip. I tamed flyaways with a classy strand of pearls (Toniq Moony Diva Hair Band).
Mane thing: Once you figure your curls out, you will love them forever.
