Q: I have thick (ish) curly hair and at the start of the day, my hair is fine and the curls are reasonably well- defined, but at the end of the day, they are seriously frizzy and there is nothing I can do. Are there any products to stop or help this?


A: The key with managing curls is to do as little as possible. Make sure you get someone to cut the hair who knows what they're doing. Curly hair cannot be cut in a technical manner like straight hair, although they need a simple shape they have a life of their own and need to be cut with that in mind.

The best product for curls by far is the Kerastase Oleo Curl Crème. This wonder product will help define the curls without going hard and crispy. Once you have washed the hair applied Oleo Curl allow the hair to dry

naturally or diffuse it to 90% dry (if you diffuse it 100% there is more chance of frizz).

Throughout the day if the hair frizz's just spray it down with some water, scrunch up and allow to dry naturally. The more you do this the better the curl definition. It's not necessary to wash the hair each

morning, just spray it down. In fact the curl definition will only get better and better if you don't wash it for a few days and just keep spraying it down!
