Everything You Need To Know About Frizz
What Causes Frizz?
Frizz can be a result of environmental factors such as humidity, and is caused by a lack of moisture in your hair. If you step outside with thirsty, dry hair, it will absorb any excess moisture from the air – and poof, hello frizzy locks. Overuse of hot tools can also be a culprit behind frizzy hair resulting in heat damage and split ends. Although you can’t control the weather, you can adapt your haircare routine to help control your frizz.
How To Fight Frizz
First and foremost, you want to do is determine how much of your hair is actually damaged and how much is just frizz. Any damaged hair or split ends should be trimmed. Your hair will thank you.
Make sure you’re using the right shampoo and conditioner. Choose products that are formulated for your hair and scalp type. You should steer clear of any sulfates and alcohol listed on your product labels. These ingredients cause your hair to dry out and won’t do your frizz any favors.
When it comes to caring for your mane, try letting your hair air dry most of the way before switching on your blow-dryer to reduce heat exposure. Look for nourishing hair oils to use on your ends, and use a deep conditioning treatment or mask once a week. Keeping on top of regular trims, and investing in a silk pillowcase will keep your hair looking great.
1. Swap out your hair elastics for silk scrunchies to say goodbye to breakage.
2. Spritz a clean toothbrush with hairspray and use it to gently comb down flyaways for a quick frizz fix.
