5 Tips for Combating Frizz

5 Tips for Combating Frizzy Hair

 

With warmer weather quickly approaching, frizzy hair is inevitable. Frizzy hair is most commonly caused by a lack of moisture in the hair shaft but can also be attributed to humidity. Here are five techniques for managing frizzy hair:

 

  1. Use shampoos that are glycerin-packed, sulfate-free, and alcohol-free.

Shampoos that are loaded with sulfate and alcohol can dry hair strands more quickly. Using a shampoo that is high in glycerin helps to create a protective layer over the hair shaft to prevent further damage and breakage.

2. Use a hydrating mask 1-2 times per week.

While there are a variety of products on the market for hydrating hair, I like to turn to natural remedies when I feel like my hair needs extra moisture. Coconut oil and olive oil are great alternatives to hydrating hair strands if you don’t want to spend the extra money on a store-bought hair mask. I usually apply one of these oils as a mask at night for a deep conditioning effect. I let the product set in my hair while I sleep and rinse it out in the morning. This is a great way to restore moisture to your hair and prevent frizz in the future.

3. Brush your hair regularly.

Brushing your hair regularly helps distribute the scalp’s and roots natural oils to the rest of the hair. These natural oils can help trap out humidity from entering the hair shaft and strengthen hair strands.

 

4. Use an anti-frizz product for touch-ups.

Anti-frizz products are great solutions for taming frizzy hair. This survival kit season at Her Campus Loyola, we received Bed Head by TIGI’s Get Twisted Anti-Frizz finishing spray. This finishing spray can be used on wet or dry hair to protect hair from frizz and lock in wavy or curly hair. The product has a dual purpose working as a hairspray and anti-frizz solution. It promises to combat frizz and humidity for up to 72 hours.

5. Use a silk pillowcase.

This Kardashian-approved technique has been proven to prevent split-ends and maintain shiny hair. Using a silk pillowcase can reduce the creases and frizz that accumulate in hair overnight.
