So, what is a frizzy haired girl supposed to do? We give you simple tips to manage your hair better and suggest some products that might be friendlier to your hair.
What causes frizzy hair?
Understanding your hair and what is causing the frizz may help you take better care of it. Frizzy hair is caused due to dryness, lack of moisture and nourishment. The outer most layer of your skin is called the cuticle. When the cuticle is dry it opens up and lets moisture in, which causes the hair to swell up and this is what causes the frizz.
Shampoo tips for frizzy hair
Do not shampoo very frequently. Up to twice a week is advisable, any more, and you run the risk of stripping your hair of its natural oils. Look for shampoos that have natural oils and are less in sulphates that will help you tame the frizz. The TRESemmé Keratin Smooth shampoo is formulated with fewer sulphates that helps by restoring keratin to your hair.
Conditioner tips for frizzy hair
While choosing a conditioner, opt for ones which are formulated with proteins or natural moisturisers like aloe vera, argan oil or shea butter. These form a protective layer around the hair that will shield the cuticle and reduce the frizz. Use a conditioner like Dove Intense Repair Conditioner which smooths hair and repairs damage. You can also use just conditioner for washing your hair in between the days you shampoo your hair.
Weekly treatment tips
For intense hydration use weekly treatments that you can easily make at home. You can also use leave-in conditioners and hair serums that keep your hair smooth. For controlling frizz on a day to day basis, spray a little hair serum on your brush and brush your hair with it. This will detangle your hair and lightly coat your hair with serum.
Embrace the frizz
Opt for hairstyles that embrace the frizz, and use the extra texture to your advantage. Don’t try too hard to tame the frizz with heat styling and products. Hairstyles that have a bit of texture and volume are all the rage and your frizz actually helps you get that extra texture and volume. So us the natural texture of your hair to your advantage!
