We ask our ELEVEN Australia stylists for their top hair tips to beat the frizz in the heatwave!

Jo Dyer, Eleven Australia Stylist and Owner of YOKE PLYMOUTH

Use a leave in conditioner
Using Shampoo and conditioner goes without saying but make sure you use a good leave-in conditioner to your hair care regime, we love ELEVEN Australia Miracle Hair Treatment which has 11 benefits, it will give your hair extra hydration protection, prevent split ends, strengthen, moisturises and contains UVA and UVB filters all in one.

Wear a hat
Just as the sun damages our skin it also causes all sorts of problems for our hair. Not only can the sun cause breakage, split ends and colour fade but it can damage the hairs internal structure too.
If you know you’re going to be in the sun for long periods cover up with a hat and this should be non-negotiable if you colour your hair as the sun will bleach your strands creating a brassy look in a very short amount of time.

Self-care in the sun.
If you know you’re going to be heading outside to relax then make the most of your time.
Shampoo your hair as usual and towel dry it before liberally applying a treatment mask our go-to is the ELEVEN Australia Miracle Hair Mask, comb through, then tie your hair out of the way for the day. This way when you’re ready to rinse at the end of the day your hair will be soft and hydrated beautifully. This will also create a layer of protection from the sun during the day.

Avoid additional heat
The sun is doing enough damage so now is the time to skip the heated appliances. Try leaving your hair to dry naturally and avoid tongs and straighteners when you have prolonged sunshine, they will just cause more damage and dehydration to your hair. This is a perfect time to experiment with cute accessories like claw clips and scrunchies or try using a conditioning smoothing balm, the ELEVEN Australia Frizz Control Shaping Cream has anti-humectant properties and will fight the frizz or amp up the natural texture by using the ELEVEN Australia Sea Salt Texture Spray to help your hairs natural texture look amazing. If you just can’t handle not styling your hair try to skip one step… I.e leave your hair to dry naturally then use straighteners or blowdry with a brush and avoid the straighteners.

Wash your hair properly
If you spend the day in the sea or a pool it’s important you make sure any salt and chlorine is out of your hair as it can continue to cause damage. Rinse your hair thoroughly in warm (not hot!) water then shampoo once Deep Clean Balancing Shampoo shampooing for a second time with a hydrating shampoo, we are obsessed with the new Miracle Hair Treatment Shampoo and Conditioner, it contains hyaluronic acid which hydrates the hair and also has anti humectant properties. It’s important to make sure you squeeze out as much water as possible before applying your conditioner, if the hair is soaking it will just run straight off the hair. If you can gently squeeze extra moisture off with a towel before you apply you’re giving your conditioner more of a chance to do its job.

Jo Robertson ELEVEN Australia Education Director

All hair beauty regimes should start with the ELEVEN Australia Miracle Hair Spray hair Treatment, we may be at the end of the summer season but we should still be thinking about Sun Protection for our hair, don’t be fooled by thinking the UV rays won’t be as intense as late-summer. Your hair colour and condition is still at risk. Just as you do for your skin, protect your hair with Miracle Spray Hair Treatment, it has 11 benefits and will help to protect your expensive brunette or buttery blonde. Apply religiously every time you wash your hair and make sure you cover your hair if you are in the sun for long periods.

Beat the frizz!
Too hot to blow-dry your hair? Explore your natural texture.
Moisture is your friend in the heat, your hair will be on the lookout for moisture during the day and will look frizzy without adding moisture into the hair. The best way to beat the frizz is to use products that are hydration, the new ELEVEN Australia Miracle Hair Treatment Shampoo and Conditioner contains hyaluronic aid which is like giving your hair a glass of water, which is very much needed in this heatwave. It also helps to boost curls and has heat protection added in. To enhance your natural texture apply Keep My Curl Defining Cream generously onto the hair and then using a t-shirt towel squeeze the product into the hair, this will allow the hair to take on the right amount of moisture and not just to the surface of the hair. Try letting your texture air dry or if you are in a rush use a diffuser but remember not to touch the curls while they are drying, it will make them frizzy.

Hydration is Key, if your hair is feeling a little dry, treat it to an intense moisture mask. The ELEVEN Australia Miracle Hair Mask is great for thirsty hair, it will strengthen the hair whilst hydrating. The key to these masks is leaving them on for the right amount of time, if it says 15 minutes don’t cut corners and rinse after 3 minutes. They need time to penetrate into the hair and to do it’s job. Relax, wrap your hair up and enjoy the pamper. Your hair will thank you!
