I need some help for my scene hair!

Okay my hair is medium length, wavy, and frizzy. I straighten it out and style it scene just about everyday and I use proper hair care products to keep it from getting dry and damaged. The thing is, my style only lasts about half a day! Then it deflates and gets curly again! What can I do about it? And while I'm at it does anyone have any backcombing/teasing tips I could use? And what are some good hairsprays and mouses i could use for that extra volume?

First of all, it is important to know what causes hair to frizz, I can explain it in three simple words "Water and Humidity", its as simple as that. Since water and humidity cause hair to frizz, it is obvious we need to eliminate the water from the hair to eliminate the frizz.



The key to eliminating frizz is on the "inside" of the hair shaft. Now that we know what causes frizzy hair, lets get busy and eliminate the water.





After you shampoo, condition and towel dry your hair, add a "straightening balm" to your wet hair before blow drying. This helps open up the cuticle of your hair shaft to eliminate water faster.

You will then need to blow dry your hair. If you have thick hair, you will need to set your blow dryer on "hot", this also opens the cuticle and releases moisture. As you are drying your hair, take a brush and pull your hair out straight as you blow dry from your scalp to the end of your hair section. You will notice as you dry your hair in this manner, your hair will automatically become straight.



Also notice the steam being released as you blow dry your hair. After you have blown your hair dry on a "hot" setting, turn you blow dryer on "cold" setting to close the hair cuticle, this will keep humidity from re-entering your hair shaft and your hair will become shiny too.





At this point, all of the frizz may be gone from your hair and you are good to go. However, as I have gotten "older" my hair has become harder to manage and the frizz is harder to get rid of. So I go on to the next step.





"Wet to Dry" flat irons don't work well on wet hair, especially if your hair is thick. I have also found that the less expensive irons do not heat up enough to keep a straight look all day, they don't get hot enough to release the moisture from the inside.



You may have to spend the money and purchase a good flat iron, which is essential for my thick and frizzy hair, if you don't already have one. Any remaining water left from blow drying is eliminated by the high temp of a good flat iron. Your hair will not be damaged by a good, hot flat iron, your hair can take a lot of heat. but it never hurts to add protection to your hair, some kind of straitening aid.



Removing all moisture from inside hair shaft

When you flat iron your hair, the most effective way is to take small sections and start at your scalp and move the iron slowly down your hair to the ends. Note: I section my hair and clip the rest of my hair out of the way until I reach next section to be straightened.





When my hair is straightened and styled the way I like. I take a good "glossing serum" and apply very lightly to my finished hair. This adds incredible shiny and silkiness, also helps protect against humidity. If you use a "Hairspray" make sure it is humidity resistant! Look on the back label of ingredients, if the hairspray contains water, don't use it, you will end up with immediate frizz.



also you can guy a mini flat iron (they're like $20 from ULTA.com) to keep in your purse for emergencies
