How to deal with very frizzy hair

Updated on July 27, 2013

What causes frizzy hair?

How frizzy your hair is will depend on the type of hair you have. If your hair is naturally dry, it will tend to absorb moisture from the air particularly in humid conditions. A close up view of a shaft of hair reveals that the outer layer looks like it is scaled. When those 'scales' lie flat against the hair shaft, the hair will look smooth and glossy; if the 'scales' are not lying flat, the hair will be coarse and frizzy.

So, what can you do to prevent your hair from becoming frizzy?

Taming your frizzy hair

Top tips:

  1. For the final rinse for your hair after washing it, use cold (or at least cool) water.
  2. Use a good conditioner (ideally one with keratin protein).
  3. Don't rub your hair dry with a towel - pat it dry.
  4. Don't over use hair driers or hot styling tools (striaghteners, or curlers).
  5. If you do use a hairdrier, get one with a cold shot feature and use the cold blast at the end after styling your hair.
  6. Use a leave-in conditioner or product such as Moroccan Argan Oil.

      i have extreamly frizzy and curly hair. i seem to notice that it helps if i comb my hair in the shower before i get out. then after i put it in the towel, im very gentle with it. never combing it after the shower helps to not break up the hair and the frizz is more controlled. i also had oil, its for your nails, very thin oil. just a quarter size on my palm. but it helps to keep it soft and together. i usually end up wetting down my hair instead of washing it every day to tame the frizz throughout the day.
