You can try John Frieda secret weapon flawless finishing Creme (yeah it's a mouthful) or a smoothing balm. Also, you could try curling yours every so often just to switch it up.

i think your hair looks really cute straight. john frieda has a collection called "frizz ease" that includes shampoos, hairsprays, serums, pretty much anything you use for your hair that is suppose to take down the frizz. i would also definitely be sure to use a heat protectant on your hair before you straighten. it will keep your ends from frying. when using it though, i would concentrate on the ends of your hair, dont put much towards the roots. & be careful of how much you use, you dont want to use too much because some brands will leave your hair looking greasy! i use "beyond the zone flat iron spray" its a orange bottle & you can get it at sallys. good luck!

use a leave in conditioner after washing your hair then when you get out apply somearagon,coconut, or olive oil to your hair to cut down on the frizz... also let me add marroan oil is wonderful but if used too much causes your hair to break and for us ppl with that natural curl in the long run makes it even more frizzy also always put heat protectent on your hair before you straighten it. It will lock in some of that mosture and less heat damage to your hair

Use less heat and be sure to use a heat protectant. I also like the idea of embracing your natural curl every so often. (You may be able to curl it with your hair straightener. There are tons of videos on here and Youtube that will show you the basic technique. Or you can use a curling wand.)

If it's beyond repair, you may just need to get it cut.

trim your hair always a nice option or make a home made mask if hair is not as healthy as you want it to be. i suggest you not always put heat on your hair that is how you damage it pretty fast and easy unless you use heat protectant; sure does Help. some people prefer to straighten their hair different ways like using rolls and drying it off from there after showers but you would have to be gentle with that because some of the rolls you take off can end up curling a hair piece. hope this helped^_^

My hair is exactly like yours. I'm 19 going on 20. Honestly fury hair is so tricky. I'm west Indian, Italian and Israeli naturally born with the curliest hair ever yet my mom has straight hair. The first thing you need to do is start off with a trim. Just a little snip on your ends to revive it and bring back some moisture. If your hair looks fried and is frizzy it's most likely because it needs a cut. Naturally curly hair is tricky. A lot of shampoos and conditioners actually make it worse. You need something lightweight that will lock in moisture into your curls. Moroccan oil does help. It's pricey but it's one of the best products out there. I personally hate keeping my hair natural because I can do so much more with it but your hair needs to breathe. Shampoos from the nature source and texture and even Pantene are seriously some of the best for curly hair. When you get out the shower, apply like 2 drops of Moroccan or even jojoba oil from the top of your ears down, that way it nourishes the right part of your hair. Your scalp isn't necessarily an area that needs to much oil because it can cause build up. Also growing your hair out has a lot to do with your diet, iron levels, and water intake. I used to have hair past my butt but I had to chop it off because of too much heat, after that I had trouble growing it back because I was doing all the wrong things. Hair pills don't necessarily work unless you eat right and drink lots of water, try doing that. Another thing that I do is, once every weekend, I condition my hair with castor oil. It's one of the best known recipes and very inexpensive. It's a trick my mom taught me, it can be used to grow your eyelashes, or even eyebrows. Saturate your hair with it, leave it overnight if you want, wash it out with warm water, shampoo your hair then condition your hair and wash it with cold water! Cold water reduces frizz and locks in moisture! I rwcently cut my hair because it was fried but it was so short, imfould even put it up. After a week and a half, my hair grew 2 and a half inches, your results might be different but its worth it. Another hair growth treatment that works amazing is wheat germ conditioner. This you have to buy online but it's also well worth it. You can buy it from bluebeez.com which also has a lot of other organic products. It's in a yellow ish container. Just search it on the website. It makes your hair grow and nourishes whatever split ends you have. It helped me out a lot with my frizz problem and didn't weigh my hair down. Macadamia oil and bamboo conditioner are also things on that website that works wonders. Lay off the heat. Flat irons use negative heat that strips your hair of moisture and proteins. If you really want to straighten your hair, use a heat protectant and a blow dryer that uses ionic heat! That's your best best. Using any heat product will damage your hair but blow dryers with ionic heat cause less damage and frizz. Other than that, take care of yourself and your hair. You'll be ok. Trust me, I've been through a lot of hair incidents but my hair is always healthy now and growing like crazy. Keratin based products also help. Try looking up home remedies for your hair to. It's good to take one day out of the week to condition your hair naturally. I currently have apple cider vinegar mixed with water and a little bit of rosemary oil in my hair to remove buildup from my shampoo and to nourish my ends. The vinegar stinks but the results make it worth it. Just keep going. Always YouTube or google if you're every curious. It won't hurt. Good luck, girl! :)

I think you should take advantage of your natural curls rather than straightening your hair everyday because it will only damage your hair due to constant application of heat.What i would suggest is apply olive oil or almond oil twice a week leave it overnight and rinse your hair the next morning.While washing your hair be gentle deep condition it and after that do not comb your hair so it does not spoils your curl.Then apply live in conditioner on your damp hair or you can apply the body shop product cottonseed curl boost and its good to go :) i hope this will help.

Best thing...DON'T wash everyday! Then you won't have to use all the drying tools (hair dryer, flatiron etc) so often. I struggle with dryness & frizz...LOVE EXTENSIONS, had them several times (Great Lenghts)
