Ever feel like your hair is growing outwards by the second? Is frizz just something that defines your hair? Even if frizzy hair is a daily losing battle, not all hope is lost.
There are many ways you can combat frizz, aka the annoying halo of hair growing from your head. To help you out, we’ve gathered five different tricks for dealing with frizzy hair.
1. Put Down the Brush!
If you’re finding you have frizzy hair, don’t brush it when it is dry.
Brushing dry hair will make it bigger and more frizzy. The hair strands will also stretch and break, leading to even more frizz.
Instead, brush your hair with a wide-toothed comb when it is damp or even use your fingers! If your hair is dry and tangled, use your fingers to softly go through your hair.
2. Easy on the Shampoo
Make sure you buy shampoo that has no sulfates in it. Sulfates are what strip the hair of oils which can lead to frizz.
When you have frizz, your hair is more dry, so making sure you lock in as much moister as possible is key. Use shampoos with glycerin in it, as it will lock in moisture and create a protective barrier for your hair.
3. Condition, Condition, Condition
Use a conditioner every time you wash your hair. This will make sure your hair will keep getting the moisture it needs.
When using it, make sure you leave the conditioner in your hair for a full five minutes. This will make sure the conditioner penetrates your hair for a full moisture re-vamp.
4. Coconut Oil: Not Just for Smelling Nice
With its tropical fruity scent, you’ve got to love coconut oil. Yet, it’s not just to make your hair smell nice. Coconut oil is amazing for hair as well.
As it is super versatile, you can use coconut oil one of two ways. First, you can use it as a hair mask, applying it before you get into the shower and rinsing it out to have luscious, silky hair.
Next, you can use it as an on the go frizz option. If you find your frizz is becoming out of control, take a tiny drop of coconut oil and smooth it into your hair. Remember, a little bit goes a long way!
5. Don’t Fry Your Hair
When using hot tools like straighteners for your hair, opt out on using it on the highest setting. Even if it seems to calm down the frizz, it’ll do more harm than good in the long run.
If you need to use a blow-dryer, make sure you use a diffuser with it as well. This will help limit the amount of direct heat going to your hair.
