Women with frizzy, dry hair may notice that their hair can look a bit puffy. As the day progresses, your hair may get larger and larger, looking less and less stellar. Instead of dealing with unruly hair, have your stylist give you the perfect haircut for your frizzy and dry hair.

Keep It Long

The longer your hair is, the more weight will be put on the dry, puffy hair. This weight will help to prevent curls. If your hair is prone to being unruly, but you want to grow it out, you will need your stylist to trim your ends every six weeks. Trimming your ends will help to cut off any broken or damaged ends that will just make your hair appear even more dry. Always use a hair serum on your damp hair to tame the puffy and frizzy locks. Invest in an extremely good flatiron and straighten your hair. Not only will you create a sleek, silky and unpuffy look with a flatiron, but good flatirons will ensure your look lasts all day long without any touch ups.

Embrace Curls

Typically, dry, puffy and frizzy hair is also curly or wavy hair. Instead of fighting with your curls, learn to love them. Have your stylist cut your hair into many layers, but ensure that the shortest layer is no shorter than your bottom lip. It's also best for your stylist to dry cut your hair, so you know exactly where the curls will bounce up to. Apply a smoothing pomade to your hair to get rid of frizz and help contour your curls. Scrunch your hair with some gel, and run a curling iron through your hair to help define your curls.


Layers can help to add dimension and movement to your hair. With puffy and dry hair, however, you have to ensure than the layers are not cut too short. Have your stylist cut your hair so it's just past your shoulders. Then, have him cut in a few long layers about one to two inches apart. With this cut, you can run a flatiron through it to give your 'do a sleek look, or you can scrunch your layers with some sea salt and gel to create a textured, wavy look.
