Preventing frizzy hair starts in the shower. Cleanse your hair with a moisture-based shampoo and follow with a hair mask for added moisture. Post your shower, apply a serum or nourishing oil. This will protect your hair from frizz.
Dry hair is what often causes frizzy hair, so moisturizing is key to preventing it. If your hair is naturally frizzy, stick to only those hairstyles that help keep your hair under control and protect it from frizz. Regardless of what is causing your frizzy hair, the right combination of products and hair care techniques can help.
How to Get Rid of Frizzy Hair
1. A cold water rinse
Showering with cold water protects both your hair and skin from overdrying. It also helps tackle frizzy hair. It might also help seal your hair’s cuticles. If you’re not okay with cold showers, just add a refreshing cold water rinse in the end. If you’re not willing to give up your hot showers entirely, keep your hair and hot water’s contact minimal.
2. A conditioning shampoo
Shampoos can sometimes be over-drying. Making sure you have the right one is so important—a moisture-based shampoo and conditioner are best.
Frizzy hair is generally due to misaligned hair fibres(the ones present in your hair, not the ones we sell :D). A conditioning shampoo is great because it helps to detangle hair and realign those hair fibres. The best way to prevent frizz is to tame it when it’s wet.
If your hair is frizzy, you should opt for a formula with high hydration.
3. A wide-tooth comb
Using the wrong kind of comb can damage hair and lead to frizz. Be wise when it comes to combs and brushes. Use a brush designed for wet hair. Wide-tooth combs are ideal for frizz-prone hair because they have more space for hair to pass through the teeth, which helps to prevent breakage.
4. Cotton T-Shirt to dry hair
Many a time, frequent towel usage aggravates frizzy hair. So instead of drying your hair with a towel, switch to a cotton t-shirt. Using cotton t-shirts is good for you because it causes less friction and is more gentle on your hair.
6. Hair Serums are Key for Removing Frizz
Serums are great for frizz because they can contain silicones. Why would silicones help? Silicones are effective at taming frizz because they act as a chain-like material to help realign hair strands. Plus, they make your hair look smoother and allow free movement. When choosing a serum look for ingredients like Dimethiconol, which smooths and realigns hair fibres as well as gives hair a soft feel.
