Prep Your Hair
The end result of your hair all leads back to how you prep your hair in the shower. Properly washing it with the appropriate amounts of shampoo and conditioner will give your hair the beginning foundation of volume. After applying your shampoo, add an avocado D. I. Y. mask to help guide you in the direction of less frizz and more shine.
Avocado D. I. Y. Mask
Home remedies for frizzy hair seem like a waste of time and money, but with this D. I. Y., you might become a little obsessed! Start by cutting an avocado in half and mash up half of it into a bowl or some other container to hold your mask. Now add one to two tablespoons of olive oil to the bowl, or container. If you would like, you can also add one tablespoon of yogurt, which will help to make the mask feel even more light-weight. Proceed to mix all of your ingredients together until the mixture is consistent.
After shampooing, massage this mask into your hair and allow it to settle for fifteen to twenty minutes. Then, rinse out the mask and apply your conditioner – remember only from the ears down!
One avocado will make two masks, so make sure to be resourceful when creating your mask and remember to save the other half. This helps to keep the price of the mask affordable and even more spectacular!
(Helpful note: if you plan on doing this frequently, perhaps invest in a tupperware container solely for this purpose. You can always put a label on it saying ‘avocado hair mask’, in which you can keep your left overs and store in the freezer until the next use. Keeping it cool will help it stay fresh.)
Add Some Volume
After your shower, dry your hair with a microfiber towel. When it comes time to style your hair, pull out your Big Sexy Hair Flip it Over Texture Spray and get ready for it to work some magic. This spray is the best product for frizzy hair. Start by flipping your hair over and brush it out. Then spritz on three to four sprays worth onto your hair, flip your head back over, and run your fingers through your hair to carefully comb it out.

Now you are ready to style your hair however you want! Don’t forget heat protection though, my favorite for curling is Hot Off The Press and my favorite for straightening is Milkshake Incredible Milk. If you would like to add some heat to your style, you can now do so without even worrying that your baby hairs will frizz up. Prepare to reward yourself with some model looking hair and do not forget to take a selfie and upload it to Pinterest and/or Instagram(hashtag #guidetogorgeoushair)!
