Frizzy to silky hair in 3 easy steps | Fight the frizz

No matter your hairstyle or texture, we all go through dry frizzy hair days. Whether it’s caused by waking up on the wrong side of the bedsummer humidity or winter fog, frizz can ruin ALL our styling efforts! If you’re looking for the secret to healthy, glossy strands then you’ve come to the right place, because frizzy to silky hair starts with an effective haircare regime.

Dry Frizzy Hair vs Extremely Dry Frizzy Hair 

Now, we’re not saying there’s anything wrong with a bit of frizz and texture – we love the natural hair movement – but when it comes to combatting frizz, slathering on any old product just won’t cut it. Knowing the difference between dry frizzy hair and damaged frizzy hair will inevitably be your goto for picking the perfect haircare routine.

Signs of dry frizzy hair:

  • Uneven texture
  • Lacking in shine

Why Is My Hair So Frizzy?

If you grew up in the noughties and were a slave to teenage trends, you’ll understand the turmoil of spending hours straightening your locks in the mirror only to be defeated by the atmosphere – turning your hard-earned, poker straight strands into frizzy waves (the agony). We all wanted super sleek strands, but at what cost?

Hair contains keratin proteins and hydrogen bonds. Using hot tools slowly but surely strips your crowning glory of natural oils and proteins, ultimately breaking down its hydrogen bonds. Don’t worry – we forgive you for not understanding hot tool damage back then (or grabbing the iron!). But no wonder we were all asking ‘why is my hair so frizzy?’

 

And let’s not forget the famous F.R.I.E.N.D.S episode where Monica’s hair reaches new heights thanks to the humidity in Barbados. So, you can see why hairstylists and beauty enthusiasts worldwide united in the fight against frizz. Since then, dry frizzy hair has remained a hot topic among haircare professionals.

Dry frizzy hair arrives, unannounced of course, when our strands are lacking in moisture and our hair wildly tries to absorb the moisture from the air.

Reasons for dry frizzy hair:

  • Humidity 
  • Hot tools 
  • Overbrushing 
  • Rigorous towel drying 
  • Processing hair 
  • Hot showers 
  • Split-ends 
  • Sun damage 
  • Chlorine damage
