Fluffy hair can sometimes be a real nightmare. You've spent endless hours blow-drying and styling your hair, and then you step outside, and it looks like you've stuck your fingers in the socket. But no worries! In this blog, we're going to tell you all about how to combat frizz and keep those perfectly smooth locks.
Where does frizzy hair come from?
Before we get into how to combat frizzy hair, it's important to understand where it comes from. Frizzy hair usually occurs as a result of a lack of moisture. If your hair is not sufficiently hydrated, the hair cuticles will open, allowing moisture to escape and humidity to enter. This causes your hair to frizz and frizz.
Furthermore, weather conditions often play a role. In winter, the temperature differences between indoors and outdoors are often much greater, which your hair finds difficult to cope with. Scarves and (woollen) jumpers can also make your hair static and frizzy. Humidity also plays a role: the higher the humidity, the frizzier your hair will be. In winter, humidity is generally higher and in response, your hair can become frizzy.
Other common causes of frizzy hair include excessive use of hot styling tools, chemical treatments and using the wrong hair products.
Here's how to make your hair frizz-free
Time to look at solutions. We have listed four key tips for you that will help you go through life frizz-free.
1. Moisture, moisture, moisture!
One of the most important ways to prevent frizzy hair is to make sure your hair is sufficiently moisturised. You can do this by using moisturising shampoos and conditioners. These contain ingredients that deeply moisturise your hair and protect it from moisture.
2. Use a hair mask
A weekly hair mask can do wonders for frizzy hair. Choose a mask rich in nourishing ingredients and apply it to damp hair. Leave the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse thoroughly. This will give your hair extra hydration and close the cuticles, making it less prone to frizz. Going for a real boost? Then apply the mask to towel-dried hair in the evening and leave it on overnight before rinsing it out in the morning.
3. Don't wash your hair too often or too hot
Washing your hair too often and too hot is in any case not recommended if you want to keep your hair as healthy as possible, but in the fight against frizz this is even more important. In fact, washing your hair too hot causes it to dry out and thus become frizzy faster. And if you wash your hair too often, your hair loses the natural oils needed to keep it shiny, healthy and frizz-free. So wash your hair not too often, not too hot and finish with cold water so that the hair cuticles close and you can face the day frizz-free.
4. Quick fix: styling products
Frizzy hair is not always preventable, but it can be solved. You do this with good styling products, such as a hair oil or the Salon B Haircare No-Frizz Styling Cream. This delicious cream contains sunflower extract and a heat protectant and is specially formulated to fight frizz and detangle hair, leaving your hair silky smooth.
