Messy hair, DO care: How to rid of that frizz for good!
Aug. 28, 2020
There’s a whole industry around fighting frizzy hair – yet even with countless anti-frizz hair styling products and procedures available all of us suffer from the frizz every now and again. Whether frizz causes your hair to look limp and lifeless or blows it up as large as a lion, it can be downright annoying!
So, if you feel like you’ve spent a lifetime trying (and failing) to find the perfect solution to ridding your hair of frizz, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll start off by looking at the reasons why hair frizzes before looking at how to fight the frizz for good!
What causes frizzy hair?
It’s the simplest formula in the world: combine some dry and damaged hair with poor weather and you’ve got yourself a head full of frizz!
This occurs because the dry and damaged hair absorbs the moisture from the air meaning the hair cuticles swell up in size, leading to the appearance of frizz.
While you can’t control the natural elements, you can control the quality of your hair. So, read on to find out once and for good how to protect your hair from frizz.
Change the products you are using
The first step is cutting out anything that dries out your hair.
You might not realise it, but all those fancy shampoos and styling gels that you use to make your hair look its best could be the reason behind your frizz. In particular, beware of products with drying agents such as sulphates and alcohol.
Instead, opt for nourishing conditioners and hair masks. These products are far more likely to tame your hair while nourishing it – so that even in its natural state it’s a look you can proudly wear.
Don’t make the mistake of assuming that conditioner is just that product you use after shampoo and quickly wash off. As the beauty and hair industry has evolved there are now more conditioners available than ever before. Leave in conditioners are the go-to if you want to rid your hair of frizz. They can be left on your hair for hours (sometimes all night) and will soften your hair into a frizz free state!
Hair masks can also be worn overnight. The majority are packed with helpful ingredients such as argan oil, shea butter and honey that will moisten your hair to a sleek and healthy condition.
If you’re still wary of the wind when you step out of the house, just grab a bottle of hairspray to make sure your hair behaves!
Get creative with your hair care routine
Adding moisture to your hair doesn’t need to involve fancy serums. In fact, your miracle moisture makers might be sitting in your kitchen at this very moment.
Apple cider vinegar has given lots of fancy hair products a run for their money. Frizzy hair tends to have a high alkaline level that causes open and unruly cuticles. The vinegar has an acidic pH level which will help neutralise your hair and leave the cuticles closed and flat.
Similar to apple cider vinegar, coconut oil also has a high alkaline level (without the piercing vinegary smell!). Coconut oil is easily absorbed by the hair and adds some much-needed protein to combat frizz!
Or if you’re feeling fruity why not throw some avocado into the mix? Avocado goes a lot further than simply being a delicious toast topping, it is full to the brim of Vitamin A and E which helps hydrate your hair and tame any frizz.
Stop colouring your hair
As addictive as hair colouring is, it’s definitely not helping with your hair frizz! When you colour your hair, the cuticles are forced upwards meaning your hair’s natural structure is disrupted and more vulnerable to frizz.
It’s best (and cheaper) to just leave the hair dyes alone, and if you’re worried about greys some root touch up powders can sort you out!
Stop styling your hair with heat
You may think that by straightening your hair until its super sleek you’re protecting it from frizz – in the short term you might be right but in the long term you are definitely not! The high temperatures from straightening and curling your hair using heat strip your hair of its moisture and damage it. And we already know that damaged hair is far more prone to frizz!
Trial allowing your hair to air dry or dry it with a microfibre towel – far less damaging than a cotton towel! And the times when you are tempted by heat tools – make sure you’ve covered your hair with a healthy dosage of heat protectant spray!
Do It All Toner 🍃🍃
I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃

Skin Barrier Skin Savior 🙏🏾
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?
