Though your mum may claim that your hair looks better when left in its natural, ‘I woke up like this’ state, and don’t get us wrong we’re all about embracing the volume and softness of a frizzy curl, sometimes you may prefer the option of a more defined look. However, taming your mane may be more difficult in the humid summer months, leading to a little extra effort to achieve a sleeker, smoother finish. Don’t be fooled though, heat isn’t the only culprit compromising your curls; we have summed up the five main reasons why you may be struggling to fight the frizz and how to fix it.
Just like skin, hair has a natural protective barrier that helps keep essential moisture inside and acts as a shields against the elements. Aggressive cleansers strip hair of this barrier, leading to dryness and breakage, which in turn causes frizz. To keep your hair healthy and frizz-free, choose a sulfate-free shampoo that won’t strip it of oils such as the Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo, and avoid washing your hair every day. Instead, try rinsing your hair between washes, and only cleanse when your scalp is actually dirty. Or use a dry shampoo to go longer between washes.
