What Causes Frizzy Hair?

How to Combat FrizzHair is most susceptible to becoming a frizzy mess when there is a lack of moisture in the air. The main problem with frizzy hair is that it’s dry, so water is often needed to rectify it. Throughout the day your hair tends to lose moisture, which can be caused by environmental factors such as dry air or pollution. Additionally, on humid days frizz arises due to the intense moisture and humidity in the air. The cuticle, which is the outermost layer on the hair strands, opens up and lets the outside air in when frizz occurs. This then results in your hair becoming a frizzy mess. 

Top Tips on How to Control Frizzy Hair

Have a Brazillian blow dry treatment – A keratin or Brazillian blow dry hair treatment will eliminate up to 95% of frizz and curl so your hair will become silkier and more manageable.

How to Combat Frizz

Condition hair regularly –  Conditioning hair regularly is very important to keep it looking shinier and healthier. Moisture must be deposited in your hair in order to eliminate frizz. Our expert hair stylist at Johnson Blythe can advise you on the best conditioner to use for your hair type. When applying conditioner, start from the tips all the way down to your ends. Avoid drenching your roots with conditioner so it can have some breathing space.

Wear hair in a bun  – To de-frizz hair more effectively, braid your hair into two pigtails or put it up in a bun after shampooing. The frizz-fighting mechanism is more effective when your cuticles are locked into place.

Deep condition colour treated hair –  If your hair is colour treated, our expert hair stylists can use the L’Oréal’s Powerdose treatments to help to prolong your hair colour and nourish your hair. It can also be used on the same day as your colour service. The Powerdose formula has been developed with advanced technologies catering to specific hair care needs. It includes an advanced anti-oxidant and protective cocktail that nourishes hair fibres, and protects against UV aggressors. Your hair will be less frizzy and feel smoother and shinier.

L’Oréal’s Powerdose treatments

Finger comb hair to distribute oils. To comb frizzy hair effectively, apply a moisture-locking dry oil to your hair to acts as a barrier and keep the liquids from penetrating. Wet your fingers and run them through sections of your hair to detangle any knots.
