How To Fight Frizz
If it’s the humidity or you’re just born with it, frizzy hair is definitely something that a lot of us have to deal with. In this blog post, we’re going to give a few tips on how to tackle the frizzy-haired beast.
What Causes Frizzy Hair
Before we go onto how to fix frizzy hair we have to start at the root of the problem. The frizziness in your hair is caused by the lack of moisture that your locks are holding onto. Humidity can also cause frizz which explains why when you have dry hair and you go outside your hair poufs up. Your hair wants that moisture so it’s going to try and absorb the moisture in the air. For the naturally wavy and curly haired girls, you already know this problem because your hair has a tendency to be dry.
Tricks to Combat Frizz
Keeping your hair coated with moisture is the best way from keeping your hair cuticle from opening up and letting the extra moisture from the air in. Look for a conditioner that’s moisturizing. We recommend using our Leave-In Conditioner after every wash.
Wet your hair and only use conditioner. Every few days wet your hair and use conditioner instead of shampoo and then rinse it out. We recommend doing this twice a week. This is a great trick for days where you don’t want to go through the hassle of shampooing your hair. It also protects the natural oils on your scalp.
Use a Hydrating Mask
Keep your hair hydrated by using a hydrating mask. This mask will prevent your hair cuticle from opening up and letting moisture in that will cause frizz. Doing a hydrating mask will also prep your hair for the next time you go in for professional styling. You can also use coconut oil on your hair but make sure to keep it away from your tape in extension panels as the oil will make them loose.
Let Your Air Dry Before ANY Heat Styling
Yes, this includes blow drying! This trick will save your locks. By letting your hair air dry you’re not disturbing your hair strands and you’re letting them take it’s natural course. This helps your hair soak up all the moisture that it’s supposed to. It also gives your hair a much sleeker texture as you use your heat tools. Don’t forget to use our Heat Treat and Shine!
