How to control the frizz

The rain comes and you are all suddenly on the Internet searching for a miracle ( sorry but 😂) the extra moisture in the air causes hair to go crazier than your first boyfriend but there is a solution but you probably won’t like it but here goes.

Hair and the curl is a direct reflection of the moisture content of your hair, the more moisture the cleaner the curl, less moisture ( internally ) the more misbehaved the curl. If you want a product you most likely have already in your bathroom try a serum when it’s wet and again gently applied.

Tips to help prevent frizz

If your a hair maintained ( trimmed every 6-8 weeks regardless if your growing it or not ) this removes split ends that will themselves add to the frizz.

If you are one of those people who flips your hair upside down shakes it, or wraps it in a towel on top of your head stop doing it!!! This type of mistreatment will only add aggregation to your hair once dry, pat it dry don’t rub it like you’re drying a wet dog!

When you have the conditioner in each time you wash it ( and you should condition it every time, it closes the cuticle and prevents moisture escaping ) use a wide tooth comb when it’s in and detangle.

If you get a blow out, chances are at some point you have experienced the hairstylist burning your hair into place vs gently encouraging it. Finish the blow out with cool air, this helps close the cuticle giving it shine and keeping the moisture inside.

Use 2-3 drops of Serum ( we recommend Cristali Liquid by Alfa Parf ) when it’s freshly washed and again as it’s 90% dry

7 ways to prevent frizz during monsoon 

Yep the rains have started, some may say a little early but it doesn’t matter they are here and your hair is going to start looking like Simba from Lion King 🦁 if you’re not game ready. 


There are a few things that can help we thought it best to share so you don’t end up looking like a crazy Freek!

  • Yes keratin can help, it’s not rebounding, it’s not a cure all but it does reduce frizz a lot if you have curly or frizzy hair it’s a great time to get it done now. 
  • Conditioner and we always say use it because it closes the cuticle and prevents moisture escaping or getting inside the hair and causing the frizz
  • A leave in serum, prevents moisture entering past the cuticle. 
  • Styling dust, whilst it’s designed to add volume by design soaks up moisture therefore helping prevent frizz
  • A light layer of hairspray regardless if you need it because this will help repel moisture. 
  • The right cut, it’s not a secret but if your hair is cut correctly for not only your face and lifestyle but also the texture. No matter what the situation it will survive.
  • Linseed treatments, we use Alfa Parf moisture to ensure the cuticle is closed tight and if it is, then less likely that frizz will happen. 

Keep in mind hair doesn’t have to be poker straight to look neat, nor does the curl need to be controlled, it’s about taming and working with what you have so you can look good no matter what the weather. 

Monsoon hair hacks like a pro!

It’s kind of obvious we should be now taking the umbrella everywhere we go just in case but if you do get caught here are some hacks that will help!


It starts in the shower

The cuticle layer which is the outer layer of your hair is the key to keeping moisture out & in which will prevent the frizz & dehydration. A lot of people still skip using a conditioner after shampooing in the hope to have fuller hair, which will leave your hair dry & prone to frizz and breakage.  Always use a conditioner. 

Don’t over touch or agrivate your hair.

The trick is not to touch it unless there is a good reason, you should be only doing the touching in the shower. When the conditioner is in, a wide tooth comb to remove the tangles and rinse.  Do NOT TOUCH IT AFTER THIS! 

I’m often suprised when  people shake their hair like a hall carpet after a dust storm and then wonder why it’s frizzy. Don’t flip your hair upside down and wrap it in a towel, this is creating frizz because of the direction your drying it.  Pat dry or blot dry your hair, never shake, toss it or start flipping this way and that. 

Wet to dry & cool 

If your hair happens to get wet, or you get caught in the rain try and get it dry as soon as possible. Aim to blowdry it as soon as possible, also make sure all of the moisture leaves the hair using the cold button make sure the hair is cooled down, this closes the cuticle hence helping to repel moisture in and out!

Pretty in Silk

No it’s not just for royalty, get yourself a silk Scarf and wrap your hair  in it before going to bed.
