How Can We Combat Frizzy Hair?
When our hair is dry, any moisture causes the scales to open. Frizz is caused by the outside cuticle bristling up and expanding when the hair absorbs moisture from the surroundings. There are many ways to combat frizzy hair, and we will be looking at those in this blog.
Why Does Hair Become Frizzy?
Frizz is caused by dry hair absorbing moisture from the air, which also explains why humidity can exacerbate frizz. In healthy hair, beneficial moisture from natural oils is created by your scalp to avoid irritation. When the hair shaft is open and damaged, beneficial moisture might escape while air moisture enters, causing the hair shaft to become frizzy.
‘I can’t do exercise, because humidity will make my hair even frizzier.’
Exercise is key to maintaining health, so you should never eliminate it from your daily list. Even though sweating can cause your hair to become frizzy and puffy, exercise helps keep your hair healthy as well. As a solution, while engaging in sports, both inside and out, and while swimming, make sure your hair is tied up in some way and consider covering it with a baseball hat or bandana. Swimming pools contain chlorine, which can contribute to frizz, so use a swimming hat to protect your strands.
Heat and Frizz Are Close Friends…
Frizzy hair can also be caused by heat damage and style. Blow-drying or flat-ironing with excessive heat can damage the hair’s cuticle, resulting in frizz. The use of hot styling products on a regular basis can deplete hair’s natural moisture, resulting in dry, damaged strands that are prone to frizz. It’s also not a good idea to wash your hair in really hot water. The ideal option is to use water that is neither too hot nor too cold. Water that is warm. As Goldilocks would say, it’s just right.
Hair Masks Protect Your Hair From Humidity
Hair masks can offer helpful nutrients to hair, which could also help keep it nourished, moist, and frizz-free. You can’t remain indoors every time it rains or is humid, but you can use them to keep your hair nourished, moist, and frizz-free. Root Therapy Strengthening Treatment Mask is a regular recovery treatment that cocoons your scalp and hair in a revitalising and fortifying complex of organic Hemp Seed oil, Avocado oil, organic Shea Butter, antioxidant organic Green Tea, and a comforting tonic of 6 essential oils, making it perfect for reducing frizz. All hair types, including color-treated hair, will benefit from this treatment.
Be Careful When You Brush!
When your hair is dry, never brush it! Instead, use a wide-tooth comb to untangle hair after washing or while in the shower, and a round, natural boar bristle brush to smooth the hair cuticle and distribute oils from your scalp down the hair shaft to the ends while blow-drying.
Avoid Touching Your Hair Too Much During the Day
Bad hair habits, such as constantly running your fingers through your hair, can disturb the cuticles of your hair, making it seem poofy and frizzy. When your fingers contact your hair too much, they can actually steal vital oils, leaving your hair strands dry and easily damaged. Playing with your hair causes frizz, tangles it, disrupts its moisture levels, makes it oily, and causes dirt to build up.
To Sum It All Up…
Hair health suffers in today’s world. Hair can become fragile, brittle, dry, and lacklustre as a result of a constant barrage of environmental aggressors, all of which contribute to frizz.
