How to stop the Frizz

It’s a fact that this time of year the Frizz is at its worse so firstly chill out! But one of the major factors that cause frizz is the way you treat your hair, the majority of the frizz can be controlled simply by controlling how you handle it.

Habits that you have had may be wrong, so it’s time to break it down hopefully to make your life easier and not end up walking around like a frizz ball.

Putting your hair up wrapped in a towel may be practical and look sexy but it creates frizz, your hair twisted and tied up will make it frizzy!

Instead after you have put your products in, pat dry and try not to disturb it much at all. When you have the conditioner in, use a wide tooth comb and comb it through. After you have rinsed it don’t over handle the hair much at all.

Drying your hair upside down to get the fullness or shaking it out is also a NO NO as it will create frizz

Don’t do This

Every movement you do with your hair needs to be gentle and slow, flipping hair around is inviting it to misbehave and go frizzy. If you can use an old TShirt pat dry the excess moisture go about doing whatever it is you need to do then gentle remove.

Small gentle movements without the drama of flicking your hair side to side will put you in the best chance of less frizz

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.
