Frizzy hair or flyaways are a major hair hassle that most women complain about. In the case of curly hair, the hair cuticle is naturally open due to lack of moisture, leading to frizzy hair. Frizz happens when the dry and porous hair sucks up moisture from the air and causes the shaft to swell. Thick, coarse, and curly hair has a higher tendency to frizz easily, especially in the summer, when humidity levels are at their highest.

Dry and frizzy hair is a cry for oil nourishment and moisturizing. Most women around the world prefer a weekly visit to a hair spa for keeping frizziness at bay. However, this is not a very affordable option for many. Also, some might not favor the chemical-based products used in these spas.

How To Control Frizzy Hair

1. A Good Haircut

A good haircut is the best way to control frizzy hair. Get your curls trimmed every six months to get rid of split ends, one of the most common causes of frizzy hair. Do not cut your hair too short as the humidity gets trapped in shorter hair easily, causing frizzy hair. Cutting off the damaged hair will give a healthy look to your curls. You can also ask your hair stylist to thin out the hair, in case it is too thick. This will tame down your hair and make it more manageable.

2. Shampoo And Conditioner

Apply a hydrating and repairing shampoo. Well-nourished hair is less likely to react to humidity. Use a gentle shampoo to remove the dirt build-up from the scalp, allowing the natural oils to condition the hair follicles and scalp, thereby controlling the frizz. Do not shampoo your hair daily as it strips off the natural oils from the scalp. Wash your hair thoroughly to remove all shampoo traces.

When it comes to conditioning, high amounts of conditioner coat the hair shaft, making it harder for the moisture to sink in. Use a mild conditioner to moisturize the curls. Leave the conditioner for a few minutes before rinsing it out. You can also use carbonated water to rinse your hair. The low pH value of carbonated water will control frizziness.

Do not blow-dry your hair as it roughens the hair cuticles and makes your hair frizzy. However, if you do blow-dry, then do not forget to apply a heat protectant before you do so.

Wrap your hair for several minutes in a towel to soak excess water. Towel rubbing can cause hair breakage and make it more vulnerable to frizz.

3. Anti-Frizz Products

Using the correct hair products can help you greatly in managing and controlling frizzy curls. There are several frizz control products available in the market, specially designed for curly hair. Serum coats each strand of the hair and makes the cuticles smooth. Apply anti-frizz serum or mousse on damp hair, distribute it with a wide-toothed comb, and let it dry naturally. Do not run your fingers through your hair until it is completely dry.

These are some of the best solutions for your frizzy hair. Try them and fall in love with your hair all over again! Do not forget to share your experience with us.

    Yep, I am using homemade hair masks about once a week or every two weeks with things like eggs, mayo, olive oil, banana, avocado, coconut or almond oil. Plus I would recommend that you go online and get a product called Pro Natural’s moroccan argan oil online because that stuff is amaaaazing on frizzy hair. It’s not oily and it doesn’t make your hair greasy, you just pump a bit out and comb it through your hair, it works really well and it smells good too.

    Dear Shalini, a lot of women face hair loss post-pregnancy, this is called postpartum hair loss. This unusual shedding will reduce eventually and your hair will be back to its pre-pregnancy thickness about six to 12 months after you give birth. In most of the cases, you won’t be able to stop the hair from falling out, but you can experiment with different hairstyles or products (such as hair thickeners or mousse) to give your hair a fuller look during this transition period. Try a new hair cut, choose the right hair product, avoid stress and follow a nutritious diet…follow these tips and eventually you will see the difference.
