Could this be why your hair keeps frizzing?
7 ways you’re causing your own frizz
If you can put your hand on your heart and honestly declare that you have tried everything to counteract your frizz and NOTHING has worked, then what we are about to share with you is going to change your life, for real.
You may or may not know that frizz is caused when your hair is dehydrated.
In other words, your hair has no moisture in it and its consistently dry.
Technically, when our hair is dehydrated, the hair cuticles become dry, rough and raised.
When this happens, our hair and its raised cuticles starts looking for moisture in the air to help
combat the dehydration. The hair absorbs the moisture through the rough and raised cuticles and
causes the hair strand to swell with moisture.
But moisture alone doesn’t fix our dry and damaged cuticle problem, in just means we end up with damaged hair strands full of moisture – in other words frizz.
That’s why humidity is considered one of the most problematic enemies of hair.
So, now you know the secret. Treating frizz is a two-step process, but more about that later.
First, let’s look at what you could be doing to dehydrate your hair.
If you realise you do one or more of what we’ve listed below, please know that you are not the only one. In fact, we’ll put our hands up first to say we’ve done these too – whoopsie!
- You have over-dyed or over-bleached your hair one too many times
- You have loaded your hair with store bought shampoo and treatments that fill and coat your hair with chemicals that are actually adding to the problem rather than resolving it
- You use heated styling tools daily or even every other day
- You have extremely hot showers
- You use harsh, foaming shampoos that strip moisture from your hair
- You wash your hair too frequently and strip your hair and scalp of its natural and hydrating oils
- You’re probably not drinking enough water overall
Ok, so now you know what you could currently be doing to add to your frizz mess.
They say awareness is key when it comes to change, and well babe, consider yourself made aware! All you have to do is make the change.
Then there’s the other step to getting rid of frizz once and for all – remember the two-step process we mentioned earlier?
First, we stop drying out our hair, second, we need to treat and repair the rough, raised and damaged hair cuticles that started this frizz mess in the first place!
Well, have you ever heard of a smoothing treatment?
It’s a magical all-in-one smoothing treatment to smooth, hydrate and repair your damaged and dehydrated, frizzy hair!!
If you want a quick and guaranteed frizz fix, then you should speak with your local recommended hair salon.
We recommend visiting your hair salon rather than doing this at home because the professional smoothing treatments use only natural plant extracts because chemicals will only dry your hair out even more!
And when you do visit your local hair salon, make sure their smoothing treatments contain natural Latic Acids.
Natural Lactic Acids help to exfoliate any build up and residue in your hair. This allows for your hair to absorb the nutrients and moisture it needs to repair your damaged hair which then works to de-frizz the boof.
And while you’re looking into the best smoothing treatments available, make sure Coconut Oil is included because it is known for its intense hydration properties.
Then, you want to make sure the smoothing treatment has silk proteins, Amoco Acids and a Plex systems too. These work to build stronger hair cuticles and strands while treating and preventing any further damage to your hair.
Now, you have no more excuses for ever being caught out with frizzy hair again – not when you now know how to prevent and treat it.
