  1. Great tips, I have wavy hair so mine is just a frizzy flat mess 🙂 I know don’t be jealous ladies heheh

  2. Great tips! Great way not to wash your hair so often is using dry shampoo. I used to wash my hair every second day and now, thanks to dry shampoo I wash my hair just twice a week.

  4. It’s hard for me to not wash my curly hair every day. When I workout, I am drenched. Too sweaty to use dry shampoo. But, I use great products to help keep it hydrated and not frizzly.
