Hello! My hair has been a problem for a long time. I get upset about it but im not sure what to do about it. Up until my early 30s id say my hair was my best feature. Thick, shiny, full, dark. I always got compliments on it. Around 33 id say for no particular reason other than hormones my hair started to change. It's become frizzy, coarse, dry and is basically unmanageable. Even putting it in a ponytail isnt an easy fix as i have these annoying flyaways. Also i have a few white hairs which are a very different texture.

At 35 i had my first baby, the i had my daughter at 37. That didn't help my hair either. I have thought about keratin treatments but they cost like 300 dollar and ive been told last 6 weeks. Im also still nursing my 1 year old and there are ingredients in these treatments that you cant have in your system while nursing.

I wear my hair long....but usually pull it back. Anyone have advice on how to get rid of frizz?

Have you used the product "It's a 10"?
You can find it pretty much everywhere.

I have 3 products I use for frizz

Bed Head TIGI Control Freak - Works in wet, damp, and/or dry hair. The smell isn't great, but my hair never feels weighted down and the frizz is much less. I can buy this at a local pharmacy store.

Redken Outshine 01 - This is my current favorite no-frizz product. I can only use a teeny bit in damp or wet hair, otherwise it gets greasy feeling by day 2, but it makes my hair lie flat and smooth. I got this product from my salon.

Tresseme Keratin Smooth - This helps my hair straightener tremendously, I barely have to use it after blow drying, but almost makes my hair TOO soft with no texture. I prefer the blunt layered look.

My daughter is the one with shoulder length, very thick curly hair that tends to frizz. I got her what I use, Pro naturals Moroccan argan oil applied to wet hair mainly to the ends and partway up the length. It took a few applications but it has stopped the frizz completely and it really looks healthy, shiny and manageable now. Spoke to her last night and she is still using it. She says to tell you that she sections her hair, puts a couple of drops on her palm, smooths it on to the ends and gently smooths the rest of the length. She repeats this until all her hair has been covered. She then "combs" it through with her fingers & leaves it to air dry till it is almost dry then uses the cool shot on her hair dryer to finish. Hope this helps you but check with your Doctor first to make sure argan oil is OK whilst you are still feeding, I've given you the link so you can show the doctor the ingredients https://www.pro-naturals.com/pro-nat...argan-oil.html

As I've aged, my hair has changed dramatically as well. To cut down on frizzyness, I use a coconut oil spray mist by Renpure Originals.
