Frizzy hair is the scourge of the modern day woman. Despite endless attempts, there is no guaranteeing that a spot of rain, or a hot humid day will turn your sleek barnet into a frizzy mess.
Frizz is mostly caused by a lack of moisture in your hair, but humidity can also contribute to it. «Your hair loses moisture throughout the day, so midday, the cuticle [the outermost layer on your strands] opens up and lets the outside air in, creating a frizzy mess. Here’s some tips from Cosmopolitan, to control the frizz in your life.
- Let your hair dry 90 percent of the way before you blow-dry. Too much hot air focused directly on your strands dehydrates it, making it frizzy — especially during the winter months when the air is less humid.
- Brush your hair regularly to help distribute its natural oils. Hanging your head upside down and brushing your hair with a boar bristle brush helps distribute the oils from your scalp/roots onto the rest of your hair.
- Keep straight hair from getting frizzy by brushing dry oil through it with a mixed bristle brush. While your hair is still wet, apply a moisture-locking dry oil from your ends to midway up your hair shaft; oil acts as a barrier, keeping liquids from penetrating.
- De-frizz wavy hair by putting it in a bun after it’s dry or defining your waves with a curling iron. After you’ve shampooed, conditioned, and applied the dry oil from ends to midshaft, blow-dry your hair, and either put it in a bun if you want looser waves (the frizz-fighting happens as your hair cools, when your cuticle locks into place) or define your curls with a barrel iron.
