Whether you have fine, thick, curly, dry, or coloured hair, you've probably encountered frizz at some time in your life. Fighting frizz can feel like a constant battle, especially when so much of this common hair complaint comes down to the weather.
However, you can regain control and get a smoother main with a good haircare routine and the appropriate products. Relax! You're only a few steps away from having gorgeous, frizz-free hair.
What causes frizz, and how do I prevent it?
Frizz is caused by a lack of moisture in the hair. This dehydration causes the cuticles to open up and absorb humidity from the air. Individual strands separate from each other, and the hair overall becomes brittle and dull. Frizz is often worse in humid regions and in winter, when the central heating is on.
The key to frizz-free hair is to lock in moisture and seal the cuticles. Properly cared-for hair strands are more resilient to external elements such as humidity.
What shampoo and conditioner should I use to prevent frizz?
A good haircare routine always starts with shampoo, and it’s important to choose a mild shampoo for frizz-proof hair. Avoid sulphates and harsh chemicals, which can lead to dryness. Pureology Smooth Perfection Shampoo is a gentle cleanser that's packed with shea butter and sesame oil for nourishment and hydration.
Don’t skip conditioner if you want to abolish frizz. Your hair needs all the moisture a good conditioner can offer. Consider a hydrating conditioner, such as O&M Hydrate and Conquer Conditioner, and focus on the lengths of your hair.
Once a week, swap out the conditioner for a hydrating hair mask to add extra moisture. Kérastase Elixir Ultime Beautifying Oil Mask contains argan, maize, camellia, and pracaxi oils, which leave your hair feeling silky-smooth and protected.
Should I blow dry my frizz-prone hair or leave it to air-dry?
Contrary to popular belief, blow-drying is actually better at taming frizz than air-drying is. If you let your hair dry naturally, your strands absorb humidity from the air. A blowout at a low heat setting seals your cuticles, making hair less likely to fluff up.
What other hair treatments can I use to help prevent frizz?
O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum helps smooth down hair and control any flyaways. This serum is also perfect to pop into your handbag. If your hair has a frizzy moment, you can apply extra product for damage control.
MoroccanOil Original Oil Treatment is rich in argan oil and can be used on wet or dry hair. You can even apply this product as a hot oil treatment to enhance its effects.
You may not be able to control the humidity around you, but you can definitely minimise the effect it has on your hair. Just be sure to keep your hair hydrated and the cuticles sealed with good care and great products from Adore Beauty.
