Are you someone who struggles with frizzy hair? Well here are some tips and trick on what and how to help control the frizz. Thick hair which is common for those with frizzy hair is known to absorb moisture from the environment. Thick hair is able to absorb up to 40% of moisture unlike fine hair and this is why it becomes frizzy. Using a mild shampoo that doesn’t contain sulfate is very good for you hair but, it’s also better to only wash your hair with conditioner and only wash with shampoo every 2-3 times you wash your hair not everyday. This is because conditioner uses natural moisturise to maintain frizz.
Do Not Rub hair with a towel when you are drying your hair. This will create more frizz and is very damaging to your hair. Instead pat hair dry and use a wide toothed comb preferably a bamboo one if you can get hold of one to brush out the knots. Coconut oil has been proven very beneficially towards frizzy hair, because it carry’s out so much moisture it help control frizz naturally. Making sure to rinse hair thoroughly is also very important because left over products that can build up in your hair can also lead to itchy scalp. Using hot water can also remove the moisture from you hair that also leads to frizz.
It’s also know that having satin pillow cases can also tame down the frizz , they help because letting your hair dry naturally is very good and the satin stops frizz while your hair is wet. Hairdryers are seen to be the main problem when it comes to frizzy hair, this is because the heat can damage the hair and cause breakage. If you are someone that does need to use a hair dryer just make sure to use it on a low setting and try to get hair diffuse to place at the end of the hair dryer. It also helps that when your looking for new hair product to avoid any containing alcohol as this will dry out your hair and leave it very damaged. Also look for conditioners with the word ‘Moisturising’ because moisture helps control frizzy hair.
Things to Avoid for frizzy hair is when it comes to running late to a meeting or work do not rush. Rushing your daily beauty routine with thick/frizzy hair can make it worse. Time is your friend, sectioning your hair and styling takes time rushing will only create half a job and can also damage your hair more. As I’ve said before using a wide toothed comb can be very helpful because brushing your hair when its wet can cause split ends and make it very dry. So it’s best to use a wide toothed comb and then let your hair dry naturally. Try to also avoid permanent colour in your hair as this can lead to hair loss and future damage, try and use semi-permanent hair dye when you can.
