Frizz Control: It Starts with Shampoo
Washing your hair every day promotes the appearance of frizz. Instead of subjecting your hair to shampoo, conditioner, and blow-drying every day, alternate with co-washing. Every day, wash your hair only with conditioner. A gentler, more moisturizing wash that will help limit the appearance of frizz.
Wash your hair with cold water
Certainly, the idea of cold water running down your back right after a deliciously hot shower is chilling, but cold water has the power to tighten hair strands, leaving them softer and smoother.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar balances the hair's pH, and its detangling properties give the hair a silky smooth feel. Mix one part vinegar with one part water and rinse. In cold water, of course.
Hydrate your hair
To nourish and hydrate your hair, you can rely on vitamin E and glycerin. Check if they are present in your hair products and if they are among the first ingredients on the list.
Dry your hair with a microfiber towel
A classic towel absorbs all the water from your hair and accentuates frizz. Instead, use a microfiber towel that speeds up drying time and significantly reduces the appearance of frizz.
Use a hair dryer diffuser
If the hair dryer comes with accessories, it's not for nothing! All curly hair should be dried using the diffuser (the round tip with plastic tips) for even drying that preserves the curls. Without a diffuser, the air breaks the curls and gives them a messy, frothy appearance.
Straightening brush, an anti-frizz ally
There's no need to use a device that heats up to extreme temperatures to tame frizz. If you want to smooth your hair and neutralize it, just use a heating brush! It heats much less than a straightening iron and still tames the small rebellious strands that give a frothy look to your hair. Brush a few smoothing strokes through the lengths, and you're done!
What are the best treatments to get rid of frizz?
Coconut oil, the anti-frizz ally Thanks to its incredible moisturizing properties, coconut oil is the favorite ally of skin and hair. Once a week, apply a few tablespoons of coconut oil as a mid-length mask (avoid the roots if you don't like the oily look) and tie your hair in a bun. Leave it on for at least an hour or even overnight for intense hydration. Wash with shampoo and rinse normally.
Choose products that are 100% free of sulfates and alcohol responsible for frizz. Sulfates and alcohol in some products dry out the hair.
Use boar bristle hairbrushes to get rid of frizz. Boar bristle hairbrushes help spread natural sebum better from root to tip and thus limit frizz.
The Best Anti-Frizz Tips
Use a toothbrush to smooth out the frothy effect. After styling, spray the spray on a toothbrush (now called a "hair toothbrush") and brush along the length to smooth out frizz. The toothbrush helps limit the amount of spray. Admit it, we always put too much.
Use a comb with wide teeth. The more you touch your hair, the more you accentuate the frizz phenomenon. Invest in a wide-toothed comb to comb your wet hair. Detangling will be effective with fewer gestures.
Check the weather. Humidity equals frizz, no more, no less. If unexpected rain falls on your head, always have a smoothing serum (or a pocket-sized moisturizer) in your bag to minimize the frizz effect. And if you only have hand cream in your bag, don't worry: take a little product in the palm of your hands, rub them, and lightly pat, without pressing, on your hair.
Anticipate treatment for sweating. When exercising, the salt in sweat dehydrates the hair. To overcome this problem, apply a moisturizing treatment to your lengths before your session.
Invest in satin pillowcases. Cotton pillowcases are excellent, but this material accentuates friction between hair and the pillow and causes frizz! While in satin, the hair glides and becomes smoother by morning.
