How to Tame Unruly Hair

Yes, You Can Manage Your Unruly Hair

Anyone who has ever gotten a comb stuck in her hair while trying to wrestle out a knot knows: there is hair that can be a temporary nuisance, and then there's hair that never does what it's supposed to. So for hair like the latter, there's nothing that you can do aside from beating it into submission with a myriad of hot tools, correct? That's not actually the case, says stylist Vanessa Fernandez of the Butterfly Studio Salon in New York City. It's about what you put into your hair that counts. "I can't stress the need for good products enough," she says.

Quality products that enhance your hair instead of weighing it down will cut out the need for a blast of heat from your blow dryer. "You will need something ultramoisturizing, like Shu Uemura Moisture Velvet shampoo ($48) and mask ($68)," Fernandez says. This oil-based cleansing system is especially formulated for superdry hair, which tends to be the most unruly.

Follow up with a hair oil to inject more moisture and reduce frizz, such as Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum ($30). And to enhance the waves you already have, Fernandez suggests finishing with a mousse, like Kaze Wave by Shu Uemura ($38). "Both products leave the hair shiny, moisturized, and with a good amount of hold without the stiffness," Fernandez says. See? You can have the hair you've always envied . . . without the strand-singeing end result.
