Do you have curly hair that is prone to frizz? If so, you know how frustrating it can be to try to tame your locks. The good news is that there are a few simple things you can do to reduce the amount of frizz in your hair. Here are 10 tips:
- Use a clarifying shampoo. If your hair is prone to frizz, using a clarifying shampoo once a week can help remove build-up from products and environmental factors that can contribute to frizz.
- Use a deep conditioning treatment. Deep conditioning your hair once a week can help hydrate and nourish your strands, making them less likely to frizz. When you condition, be sure to focus on the ends of your hair, which are typically the driest and most prone to frizz.
- Use an anti-frizz serum. There are a variety of anti-frizz serums on the market that can help tame frizzy hair. Be sure to choose one that is suitable for your hair type and use it as directed.
- Avoid using heat styling tools. Heat styling tools can dry out your hair, making it more likely to frizz. If you must use heat, be sure to use a heat protectant spray and keep the temperature low. It’s better to air dry or style your hair with heat-free methods when possible.
- Don’t over-wash your hair. Washing your hair too often can strip it of natural oils that help to keep it moisturized. If your hair is prone to frizz, try washing it every other day or every third day to avoid drying it out.
- Use a microfiber towel or an old T-shirt to dry your hair. Drying your hair with a regular towel can cause friction that contributes to frizz. Instead, try using a microfiber towel or an old T-shirt to gently blot your hair dry. You can also try using a diffuser when blow drying to help minimize frizz.
- Sleep with a satin pillowcase. Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase can cause your hair to frizz and break while you sleep. Using a satin pillowcase can help protect your hair and keep it smooth and sleek.
- Limit your exposure to humidity. If you live in a humid climate or if it’s summertime, try to stay indoors as much as possible to avoid exposing your hair to the elements. If you must be outdoors, wear a hat or scarf to protect your hair.
- Avoid using harsh chemicals. Harsh chemicals can strip your hair of its natural moisture, leading to frizz. If you color your hair, be sure to use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. You should also avoid using heat styling tools as much as possible.
- Get regular trims. Getting your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks using only the best hair shears can help prevent split ends and other damage that can lead to frizz. It’s also a good idea to get regular trims if you use heat styling tools frequently.
