4 Common Frizzy Hair Problems and Their Solutions

The problem: Heat-styling tools, chemical damage, over-exposure to the sun, and chlorine from pools has left hair frizzy.

The solution: Begin to mend the damage with a salon-quality cleansing system (and ask your stylist if Malibu conditioning services are offered in their salon), followed by a deep-conditioning treatment. Then use a texture-balancing shampoo that will give your thirsty strands the moisture they need. DESIGNLINE Texture Balance Shampoo and Conditioner are popular picks. And for added impact, use DESIGNLINE Texture Balance Infusing Oil for added shine and to seal out humidity.


The problem: Mending the damage takes a long time.

The solution: Flyaways and split ends can quickly and easily be removed by cutting off an inch or two. A haircut, or at least a trim, every 6-8 weeks will keep your ends looking and feeling healthy—and help keep the frizziness down. Continue daily care to prevent frizz from happening again.


The problem: Blow drying makes hair more susceptible to frizz.

The solution: Use a thermal treatment like Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum to seal the strands and speed up the drying time. For the days you want to skip blowing dry, apply a leave-in treatment like Paul Mitchell Full Circle Leave-In Treatment on damp hair and let it air dry.
