Maintaining a nice hairdo on a day where it's hot and humid might feel like fighting a losing battle if you have hair prone to the frizz. So, what is the science behind frizzy hair? Dry hair and humidity tend to be the formula for a bad hair day. If your hair is not properly hydrated from the start, it can absorb moisture from the atmosphere causing the frizz. In addition to this, oils do not travel down curly hair tendrils the way they do straight hair. Retaining oil in the hair is also key to controlling frizziness and luckily for you- you've got all you need to take care of your hair at home!
Getting your split ends trimmed daily can improve the appearance of hair. Overbrushing your hair can also lead to breakage and split ends so be a little more discerning about how many times a day you comb/brush.
if you use heat styling tools, consider using heat protectant products. There are many heat protectant sprays that lock in hydration. You can iron, and curl your hair without damaging your hair's cuticles.
While hot water can be relaxing, it can actually strip your scalp of its natural oils! Lower the temperature or even opt for using cool water when rinsing your hair.
How you dry your hair matters as well. Rough towels can be abrasive to your hair. They can soak up all the moisture leaving you with semi damp, frizzy looking hair.
Do you want to elevate your hair in an ethical way? You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on hair care products when you can make your own with items you probably already have in your kitchen.
