How to tame and prevent frizz

Hello everyone!

Frizz is a common problem for people with curly, wavy, or textured hair. However, no hair type is immune to frizz. It can make your hair look unkempt and unmanageable. Frizz occurs when the hair shaft becomes dry or damaged, causing the hair to stand up and away from the head.

Causes of frizz

Many factors can cause frizzy hair, including the weather, the type of products you use, and your hair care routine. Some of the most common causes of frizz include:

Dry hair: 

When your hair is dry, it is more likely to become frizzy. This is because the hair shaft is not as smooth, and the cuticles are more likely to be raised.


High humidity can also cause frizzy hair. This is because the moisture in the air makes the hair shaft swell and become more porous.

Heat styling:

Heat styling tools such as blow dryers and curling irons can also cause frizzy hair. This is because the heat can damage the hair shaft, making it more prone to breakage.

Chemical treatments:

Chemical treatments, such as hair colouring and bleaching, can also cause frizzy hair. This is because the chemicals can damage the hair shaft and make it more porous.

How to prevent frizz

There are many ways to prevent frizz, but some of the most effective include:

  1. Using a sulfate-free shampoo. Sulfates can strip your hair of its natural oils. This can lead to frizz.
  2. Using a microfiber towel or hair wrap. Microfiber absorbs water faster and reduces frizz.
  3. Avoiding hot tools. Heat can damage your hair and make it more prone to frizz.
  4. Using a leave-in conditioner or serum. This can help to protect your hair from the elements and keep it hydrated.
  5. Getting regular trims. This can help to remove split ends, which can also contribute to frizz.
  6. Wearing a satin bonnet or sleeping on a satin pillowcase. This can help to reduce friction and keep your hair from becoming frizzy overnight.

How to tame frizz

Once you've figured out the cause of your frizz, you can start to tame it. There are a few things you can do to help control your hair, including:

  • Use a leave-in conditioner or serum to help smooth your hair and reduce frizz.
  • Apply a heat protectant before using hot tools, such as a blow dryer or curling iron.
  • Avoid brushing your hair when wet, as this can cause breakage.
  • Use a diffuser on your blow dryer to help dry your hair without adding frizz.
  • Get regular trims to keep your hair healthy and free of split ends.
