Fighting the frizz – what is frizzy hair and how to stop it?
Have you found yourself asking “why is my hair frizzy”? If you do, don’t worry because a lot of people suffer from frizz and flyaway hair. Generally, when your hair lacks moisture, frizzy hair occurs along with knots and tangles. Moreover, humidity and using products with drying ingredients also cause frizz.
Regardless of your hair type, you can be prone to having frizzy hair. For curly hair, which has a lot of natural twists, you can suffer from frizzy curly hair.
Good news is that we have rounded up some of the common causes of frizzy hair and how to overcome them.
Humidity is one of the major causes of frizzy hair. Remember that your hair is porous and when it takes in water (including the one in the atmosphere), it swells up and the cuticle lifts. So when it’s humid, expect your hair to be frizzy.
While we cannot control the weather, we can address this hair problem by using the right products. We recommend using a good shampoo and conditioner duo like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 range. Both products are expertly crafted with KERA10 Protein Complex to fight frizz by penetrating deep into the hair’s core to nourish dry strands and prevent frizzy hair. The pair gives you 10 benefits in one wash, including anti-humidity, strength, heat protection, long-lasting fragrance, anti-frizz, anti-flyaway, detangling, smoothing, softness, and shine.
Keep the Heat Low
We all love to make heat-styling a part of our hairstyling routine. Although it can give us smoother and softer hair, it actually does more damage than good, especially if we don’t use any heat protectant spray. So, aside from keeping the temperature set to low, you should also apply a heat protectant spray to prevent damaging your hair.
Care for Colored Hair
Though having colored hair has already become a trend for years, it doesn’t change the fact that hair dyes can cause dryness and damage. A few weeks after coloring your hair, you may have noticed that your strands don’t feel as smooth as they used to be. This is because chemical-based dyes break down the bonds of the hair to achieve your desired shade. And this causes flyaways, frizz, and split ends.
It’s not enough that you use shampoo. Choose a shampoo that’s formulated for colored hair like TRESemmé Color Radiance Shampoo because it is designed to lock in color within hair fibers to keep it last up to 2x longer. Follow it with TRESemmé Color Radiance Conditioner to keep it smooth and soft and prevent frizzy hair.
Care for Your Hair
If you still find yourself asking ‘why is my hair frizzy’ even after doing the other tips, it may be because of other routine activities you do with your strands. For example, combing or brushing your hair while it’s still wet can cause it to break. Or, perhaps you are using a regular towel to vigorously dry your hair after washing it. It’s best to use a microfiber towel and just pat it gently on the strands to avoid having frizzy hair. And, when brushing, use a wide-toothed comb to untangle the knots.
Now, with these tips, you can already be free from fine frizzy hair or thick frizzy hair.
