When it comes to fighting frizz, I consider myself a professional. I'm pretty sure I've tried every product and trick out there. So imagine my shock when a hairstylist recently shared an easy anti-frizz trick that made me say, "duh, how did I not know this already?

When I was interviewing hairstylist Nathaniel Hawkins for a story, he mentioned this tactic that really helps to reduce frizz: Leave your towel turban on until the moment you're ready to begin blow drying your hair (vs. taking it off after a couple minutes and letting your hair dry in the open air). The towel keeps your hair from drying so much that frizz "sets" before you even grab your hair dryer, and it also swaddles your strands so humidity in the bathroom/bedroom from your shower can't get to it. And when you finally are ready to whip off the towel and blow dry, try to do it in a less-humid place in your home versus right there in the steamy zone.
Makes sense, right? I have always taken the towel off my hair pretty quickly, but it's true that my blowout comes out about 100x better when I start with hair that's still about half-damp versus almost-dried (which it is if I let it air dry while I apply makeup).
How long do YOU leave your towel-turban on after a shower? Will you try leaving it on until you blow dry now that you've read Nathaniel's tip?|
