When your hair has a natural frizz, it is always hard to tame it neatly. So, it helps to experiment with hairstyles for frizzy hair to glamorize your locks. But, it does not have to be troublesome all the time as the right hair care products and styling tools can easily work their magic.

Jessica Shults, a licensed hair stylist, says, “One of my frizz secrets is that we either touch our hair too much, or not enough. If you have naturally curly hair, the best thing to do is let it air dry completely before touching those curls. If you are trying to smooth out the curls, you have to dry it completely. If it’s not bone dry, that frizz will surely take over! If you are in a time crunch and frizz won the battle that day, just spritz it with a shine spray, and style your curls with an iron or crimper and rock it!”

Hannah, a YouTuber, shares her personal experience along with her hair styling routine for managing her thick, coarse, and frizzy hair. She says, “I usually air dry my hair, and usually wash my hair, and then the next day I style my hair to just kind of give it a little bit of time (i).” She demonstrates her hair styling process with a straightening iron and adds, “It probably takes me around 20 to 25 minutes to style my hair.”

Now, scroll down to choose one from this ultimate list of trendy hairstyles.

protip_icon Before You Get Started
  • Use shampoos with moisturizing ingredients like glycerin, which is an excellent humectant, to lessen frizz.
  • Apply a deep conditioning mask at least once a week to help hydrate your hair and shield your locks from split ends and heat damage, the two main contributors of hair frizz.
  • Make sure to use a diffuser when blow-drying your hair to spread the heat evenly on your scalp and reduce the amount of direct heat and forceful air that hits your strands.
  • Avoid using hairspray as even the lightweight ones generally contain drying alcohols that build up and cause damage to the hair cuticle. Those with curly and coily hair can opt for protective hairstyles like bantu knots or braids.
  • You can also lessen friction by using a silk pillowcase instead of a cotton pillowcase, as hair cuticles can move freely on the silk pillowcase without generating too much friction.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do layers make hair frizzy?

No. Frizziness is caused by dry hair that lacks moisture, not by hairstyle. Layers are a good cut to camouflage frizz. A layered hair is trimmed well and does not lay flat uniformly, this minimizes frizz, and any possible frizz does not stand out. Remember not to overdo the layers, though.

How can I make my hair frizz-free and shiny?

Keeping your hair moisturized will ensure your hair is frizz-free and shiny. You can use oils, serums, conditioners, and hair masks to moisturize your hair. However, try only one or two products at a time to avoid weighing down your hair and preventing product buildup.

Will cutting hair reduce frizz?

Yes, cutting or trimming your hair can help reduce frizz.

Key Takeaways

  • To manage frizz and keep hair hydrated, use moisturizing shampoos and conditioners.
  • Use silk pillow case to avoid friction and reduce frizz.
  • There are numerous options that you can choose from from messy bedhead looks to elegant braids and buns. Pick the one that can perfectly complement your face shape.
