Issue: Frizzy Hair

Our viewer writes: "I have the worst frizzy hair in the country! I was born with naturally curly hair... with dying and damaging my hair (from straightening), it is so unmanagable and takes me forever to style. Please help me tame my hair!"

Winter Hair Care Tips for Frizzy Hair

Use: Coconut Oil

Section your hair and use a wide tooth comb to apply the coconut oil.  Be sure to saturate each strand of hair. Seal your treatment in with a towel overnight, once a week, and shampoo out in the morning. You'll wake up to smooth and shiny hair in no time. Coconut oil is super hydrating, completely natural and is actually 90 per cent saturated fat.

Use: Hydrating Shampoo

Follow up your coconut oil treatment mask with a hydrating shampoo.  The Shu Uemura Moisture Velvet Nourishing Shampoo contains camellia oil, which was used by geishas in Japan to enhance their smooth and shiny hair.

Issue: Limp Hat Hair

Use: Velcro Rollers

Before you put your hat on. Set your hair with velcro rollers in the morning for 10 minutes to maintain long lasting volume through the day.

Use: Travel Size Hairspray

Always stash a bottle of travel size hairspray in your bag. Once you get to your destination and your hat comes off, flip your hair and spritz some hairspray. This will re-active your hairstyle and the volume you had in the morning. Product: Tresemme Tres Two Travel Size Hairspray
