Frizzy HairFrizzy hair is a never-ending problem and it can happen to anyone. It doesn’t matter if you have straight hair, curly hair, or something in between. Frizziness results from a lack of moisture, unwashed hair, and/or environmental elements like humidity.
Hot water can also be damaging to the hair and cause frizz. Over-shampooing your hair can cause frizziness as well. Overuse of heat styling products— Curling irons, flat irons, and blow dryer— can also be culprits behind frizzy hair.
Words used to describe frizzy hair include: dry, damaged, stiff, straw-like, and rough. Not exactly the kind of adjectives you want used to describe your mane. While certain causes are out of our hands, such as the weather, there are other ways to keep frizz under control.
Use a straightening iron with bristles or teeth
The teeth when combined with heat, leaves your hair smooth and shiny. Use straighter brush which does exactly that and also sets the temperature that is right for your hair.
Keratin treatment
If you want something that is time-saving and long-lasting keratin treatment is perfect for you. A method that is resistant to any weather be it summer, winter or monsoon, it will make your hair straight sleek and party ready. So say Adios! To the frizz.
Check on your food intake
What you take inside of your body shows its results outside. Having a protein, fiber and vitamin rich diet is essential for healthy and smooth hair. It helps in stimulating the natural keratin already present in the hair. So, make sure you get enough goodness of these elements for healthy and frizz free hair.
Use sulfate and alcohol-free shampoo
Sulfate dries out your hair strands, which causes hair to soak up the humidity in the air like a sponge and thus causing static in the hair which makes it frizzy. Same goes for alcohol. Alcohol swells up the hair cuticles thus causing frizziness. Instead, use products which are rich in glycerine and sulfate and are alcohol-free.
Hydrating hair mask
Giving your hair a special treatment once a week is essential, it helps fill in any holes in the hair shaft that soak up outside moisture, which in turn makes your hair frizzy, use something which is rich in glycerine and proteins which will help to battle the frizz.
Air-dry your hair 90 percent before blow drying
Instead of going berserk to dry your hair right after you shower with a towel and then hair dryer, gently pat it with a towel and let 90 percent of your hair air dry. Rubbing it harshly can cause friction in hair leading it to static and hence frizz up, once you start drying it, the condition worsens, leading you to frizz.
