How to treat frizzy hair
Frizzy hair can be both a blessing and a burden—after all, it can add some texture to fine or thin hair. But even though it has an upside, hair frizz is one of the most common hair complaints. Frizzy hair happens when your hair is dry. When it’s dry, the hair cuticle lifts up (imagine shingles), allowing water from the environment to seep in. So the secret to dealing with hair frizz is by tackling dry hair, which is why moisturizing hair oils are essential. Find our frizzy hair tips below and get ready for your smoothest hair ever.
Tips for Taming Frizzy Hair
Frizzy hair responds well to moisturizing hair products, so it’s important that you incorporate a hydrating shampoo and conditioner into your hair care routine. Look for hair care products for frizzy hair that contain natural, moisturizing hair ingredients, such as coconut oil or cocoa butter extracts. We like Garnier Whole Blends Smoothing Haircare shampoo, conditioner, and treatments to help tame frizzy hair.
After you rinse your hair, how you dry it is also essential. If you want to use a blow-dryer, make sure that it’s on a cool setting, since heat can create or exacerbate frizzy hair. If you've got the time, the best way to avoid hair damage is to gently towel-dry your hair then let it finish drying naturally. Use a hair care formula that fights frizz as your hair air-dries, like Fructis Sleek & Shine Smooth Air Dry Anti-Frizz Cream.
A healthy hair care routine and a good hair ritual may also help control frizzy hair. Keep your scalp hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using a nourishing shampoo and conditioner like Fructis Sleek & Shine. Limiting use of hot tools, like hairdryers and straighteners, will also help to keep hair frizz away—for good.
