Fortunately, there are a few simple steps you can take to fight flyways and keep your hair looking smooth and sleek. Let's talk about the best ways to fight flyways

 Using the Right Products

The first step in fighting flyways is to use the right products. Look for products that are made for smoothing and hydrating to nourish and hydrate your hair, making it less prone to flyways. Also look for products that contain silicones, as these can help to create a barrier between your hair and the environment, preventing flyways from forming. On the other hand, it is important make sure there is not too much wax in the products you use to avoid harsh buildup. 

When using these products, be sure to apply them evenly throughout your hair and focus on the areas where flyways tend to form. Here are some great product suggestions for flyways.

Using the Right Tools

The second step in fighting flyaways is to use the right tools.  Here are the best tools to use to tame flyways and frizz:

Wide tooth comb- A wide-toothed comb is a great tool for taming flyways, as it helps to gently detangle your hair without causing any damage.

Boar bristle brush- A boar brush is a great tool for smoothing out flyways, as it helps to distribute natural oils throughout your hair and create a sleek finish. This brush also makes the hair crazy shiny like glass! 

 Flat iron- A flat iron can be used to smooth out any stubborn flyways. When using a flat iron, be sure to use a heat protectant spray beforehand and keep the temperature low to avoid heat damage. I would not suggest overusing a hot tool to tame flyaway and make sure to do a really sleek blowout that will last all week. This can be used to touch it up once in between.
