As popular as the Natural Hair Movement has become, many African women are still reluctant to make the change from straightened hair and weaves to life with natural hair. They believe that natural hair is difficult and time-consuming to manage, especially in the early days as you’re trying to grow it.

They’re partly right. African hair has special needs because of its intense coils. The problem is that scalp oils struggle to travel the full length of hair strands to provide nourishment and conditioning. The typical result – if you’re not devoutly following a care regime – is dry, brittle hair prone to frizz, tangles and breakage.

When natural hair is short, it’s especially prone to frizz and irritating flyaways. Everyone knows that styling headache! Fortunately, there are professional products to make life easier for short-haired girls, and restore some style control.

Straight hair control… without chemicals

Mizani’s Thermasmooth® range is a four-step system consisting of a shampoo, conditioner, leave-in serums, a heat-activated re-styler and even an on-the-go anti-frizz finishing spritz. Used together, you’ll enjoy sleek, glossy hair thoroughly protected against the style-wrecking effects of heat and humidity.

Short hair styling aids

If you prefer gel when styling your hair, try Mizani Edge Taming Gel, a dual-acting formula that controls frizz, or Mizani Foam Wrap, a fast-drying foam that provides a sleek, wet set.

You can find these products exclusively at salons. Find your nearest stockist here.
