Frizzy hair is a problem for many people, but luckily, you can combat it with a little know-how!
Read on to learn more about how to deal with hair that is frizzy and dry.
Why Is My Hair Dry And Frizzy?
Frizzy and dry hair often occurs with people who have curly hair. People who have stick straight hair have the opposite problem.
They can’t get any volume or lift out of their hair and instead of popping out like frizzy and dry hair does, it sticks straight against the head.
If you have dry and frizzy hair, that’s probably because it has a natural wave or curl to it.
Lean into this. Many people with straight hair wish they had hair with body like you! You’ve got to play this up, and that means avoiding these straightening iron.
Unless you get a chemical process that straightens your hair permanently at the salon, you’re just never going to have stick straight hair. If you have some body in your hair, that’s why it’s dry and frizzy.
What To Do With Frizzy Curly Hair
So you have frizzy curly hair and you’re wondering what to do with it? Well, there is a difference between frizzy hair and volumized hair. You’ve probably got both right now.
What you want to get rid of is the frizz, but you want to keep your lovely volume. You can do that with special techniques and different hair treatment products.
Frizzy Hair Treatments
One treatment that you can do is a deep conditioning mask. You can purchase store-bought conditioning masks at your local pharmacy or at a beauty supply store. They usually come in a small screw top container and contain what looks like a very thick conditioner.
Scoop out a small bit and rub it into your wet hair while you’re in the shower. Make sure that you cover every bit of your hair from root to tip.
Leave the deep conditioning treatment in your hair for about 10 minutes. You can do something else in the shower during this time like shave your legs if you’re a woman or shave your face if you’re a man. Rinse the conditioner out of your hair after the 10 minutes is up, and repeat this same process once every week.
You will really notice a difference in the frizziness of your hair after about 1 or 2 months. Alternatively, there are also oil treatments for frizzy hair and natural remedies which you can read about below.
Natural Remedies For Frizzy Hair
You can try an avocado and honey mask for a great moisturizing hair remedy for frizzy hair. Avocado contains essential natural oils and nutrients, and honey creates a thickening agent for the avocado while also providing a lovely smell.
1. Mix 1 mashed avocado in a bowl with 1 to 2 Tbsp of honey. For longer hair, use more avocado.
2. Apply the mixture to wet hair. Make sure to cover every inch of your hair. Leave it in for 15 minutes before rinsing out with lukewarm water and patting dry. Do this once every week for a month.
Products For Curly Frizzy Hair
There are many products for curly and frizzy hair in pharmacies and beauty supply stores. First, use hair spray to keep hairs in place if you have recently styled it. Next, think about getting a gel that has a firm hold but won’t make your hair look crusty.
You might need to do some trial and error with this, or you can talk to your hair stylist to see what he or she recommends in terms of gels. Finally, read about hair serums for frizzy hair below.
Hair Serum For Frizzy Hair
Hair serum is one of the best products that someone with frizzy hair can use. Find hair serums at pharmacies, in beauty supply stores or online. You will mostly want to use serum on your hair shafts and ends.
Never use serum on your roots or your hair will look really greasy. Put a little on your fingers and gently massage it into your hair tips and mid shafts for a more defined look and to reduce frizz.
Shampoo For Frizzy Dry Hair
You’ll want a shampoo that is moisturizing and non-drying. Scour your local beauty supply store for shampoos that are directed specifically at people who have frizzy and dry hair. You do not want “volumizing” or “root lifting” shampoos because these will make your hair even bigger! The goal is to make it stay down more, and you can do this with shampoos that add just a bit of moisture and natural oils.
Hairstyles For Thick Frizzy Hair
Sometimes, it’s good to just embrace your frizzy hair! There are many hairstyles that look much better on people who have thick and frizzy hair than on people who have fine, limp and straight hair.
For example, you can create a stunning undo by simply lifting your hair into a pony tail at the top of your head and twisting it into a large and full bun. Pin sections of the hair to the top of your head with clips or bobby pins. If you have stray hairs falling out, that’s okay!
In fact, it’s great! Add a few sparkly barrettes or some small flowers to the bun for fun accents.
You might also consider letting your hair down if it’s long. To avoid it looking like an afro, use a small curling iron to individually curl several pieces and give them definition. You can then spray these pieces heavily with hair spray to assure that they stay in place.
Tips To Get Rid Of Frizzy Hair
Remember, you shouldn’t be ashamed of having frizzy hair. Everyone has different hair, and if yours is frizzy, work with it! As stated, a lot of people would die for some lift and volume like you have.
Use the treatments and remedies found in this article, but also remember that with frizzy hair, you don’t need to wash as often. Many people with frizzy hair only wash it with shampoo every 2 or 3 days. Be proud of your hair and make it into something you love about yourself!
