Frizz can be caused by so many different things, from humidity, to the wrong hair cut, to over-cleansing. While permanent Keratin straightening treatments are available, when it comes to hair, we’re all about loving what you’ve got. So, if your looking to embrace your naturally frizzy texture, read on!
More moisture = less frizz
If you’re looking for a smoother finish, make sure you only wash your hair a couple of times a week and use gentle, moisturising shampoos which don’t strip your hair of vital moisture. We love KEVIN.MURPHY’s Hydrate Me wash and Eleven’s Smooth Me Now shampoo. Adding a mask, serum, or treatment into your routine – like KEVIN.MURPHY smooth again – will also boost your hair’s moisture and manageability.
Air dry vs blow-dry
A huge debate when it comes to frizz is whether blow-drying or air-drying gives smoother results, and the answer usually varies from person to person.
When blowdrying naturally frizzy hair, use a smoothing nozzle on your hairdryer and always finish with the cool shot to smooth down the cuticle. Investing in some great products to protect your hair from heat damage and maximise smoothing, like KEVIN.MURPHY’s Untangled leave in conditioner, will make a real difference to your hair’s texture and will extend the life of your style.
If you prefer to air-dry, add a smoothing product, like Eleven’s Frizz Control shaping cream and style your hair with a wide-toothed comb while it’s still wet so that it dries smooth, rather than trying to shape it once it’s dry.
Don’t brush your hair
Or rather, try not to brush it too much. Over-brushing can damage your ends and cause them to frizz. Synthetic bristles can also cause static and frizz.
Always comb your hair while still wet, then style with a boar bristle brush to help prevent breakage and frizz.
If your hair starts to go frizzy halfway through the day, add a little smoothing product and re-smooth using your boar bristle brush and hairdryer.
