Frizzy Hair Treatment

Updated on July 10, 2010

Frizzy hair is every woman’s nightmare. Unless you’re blessed with completely naturally straight hair, chances are that your hair will frizz up at least a little in humid weather conditions. If you have wavy or curly hair, you’re more likely to suffer from frizzy hair and may feel like you’re constantly trying to tame it.

Luckily, if you suffer from frizzy hair, you don’t have to live with it. There are a number of products for frizzy hair on the market and there are also a number of frizzy hair remedies you can try at home that might make a significant improvement. Many people with naturally curly hair choose to tie it back rather than try to deal with the freeze but curls can look beautiful with the right care and it doesn’t have to take hours every day to avoid hair frizz.

Frizzy Hair Tips

The first step of frizzy hair treatment is to make small changes to your every day hair care routine. Choose a shampoo and conditioner that are specially formulated for frizzy hair and follow your conditioner with a cool rinse. Hot water opens the hair cuticle which can make it look frizzy, so a final cold rinse will close the cuticle again, resulting in shiny frizz free hair.

Also take care when drying your hair. Rubbing it vigorously with a towel will fluff up the hair shaft causing it to look dull and worsening frizz. Instead use the towel to gently squeeze the moisture from your hair. If you have frizzy curly hair, take particular care to squeeze small sections of hair at a time in a corkscrew motion to encourage the curl.

As well as every day care, you need to make sure to get your hair trimmed regularly. If you leave your hair for a long time without visiting a hair dresser, you will get split ends which will make your hair look even frizzier. Your hair dresser can also advise you of frizzy hair tips for your particular hair type.

Products for Frizzy Hair

The next stage of defense is to use some of the modern frizzy hair products that are available to buy. These range from shampoos to finishing serums and can work wonders in converting your dry frizzy hair into a shiny glossy style to be proud of.

There are various frizzy hair solutions you can try. First try a pre-shampoo treatment that will lock in moisture and prevent your shampoo from stripping oils from your hair. Conditioners are also important but using a heavy conditioner regularly can weigh down your hair and make it look dull. Compromise by using a clarifying shampoo every week or two and supplementing with a weekly leave in conditioner or hot oil treatment.

All these products will help your hair to look shinier and healthier but if you’re really wondering how to get rid of frizzy hair, the solution lies in your styling products. Even the healthiest hair will probably look a little bit fluffy after washing and drying (you may have noticed your hair looks at its best on the days you don’t wash it!) so a finishing product is needed to smooth the hair and flatten stray hairs. You should use a protective styling spray before you blow dry your hair and then a finishing serum to finish off the look. Carrying a small bottle of anti frizz serum around with you provides a handy fix to hair frizz throughout the day when you don’t have time for a full restyle – simply smooth a small amount through your hair for instant frizzy hair treatment. There are products produced by several different companies so try a few until you find one that works for your particular hair type.
