Tips to fight frizzy hair and to control "baby hairs"
Who hasn't had a day (or several...) with difficult-to-manage hair? Hair that easily frizzes, gets electrified, refuses to hold a hairstyle, and to top it all off, those unruly baby hairs... those shorter strands that decide to make an appearance and cause annoyance, sticking out and drawing attention when all you want is for your entire mane to look uniform and every hair to stay in place without complaining. In other words, your hair is uncontrollable, and this situation doesn't improve as the day goes on... (sorry to be so honest, but it's the truth). At the end of the day, we end up with a neglected look... and on more than one occasion, we say, "Ugh... my hair..." Does this sound familiar to you?
If you've experienced this too, we understand, and what's more, we know why it happens and what the key is to control your hair, make it look uniform, healthy, and enviable. You have to control the frizz! What are you talking about? What is frizz? It's simple: frizz occurs when hair rubs against itself, creating static electricity and causing it to lose its natural shape, resulting in frizzy hair. But why does this happen?
Why does frizz occur in hair?
Hair is hygroscopic, it tends to absorb moisture from the environment. This causes the hair fibers to thicken and arrange themselves in irregular patterns (in other words, electrified, messy hair). If the hair is hydrated and healthy, it won't tend to absorb moisture from the environment. However, dry and damaged hair absorbs more moisture and is more prone to frizz. To avoid it, it's important to keep the hair hydrated and the hair fiber sealed and protected from the environment. And you might say, "Great... but how do I achieve that?" Keep reading, and you'll soon find the key. This is important for you.
What happens when hair is dehydrated? It becomes dry, frizzy, and breaks more easily, which promotes frizz. Environmental conditions and changes in weather don't help either: humidity, wind, rain, or low temperatures damage the cuticle, the outer part of the hair, causing the hair to lose its shape, clump together, and the ends to become unruly.
If we add regular sun exposure, the application of hair dyes, and the high temperatures from the hairdryers and flat irons we use every day, we're making our hair dull, dry, damaged, dehydrated, and lacking shine, thus adding more enemies to frizz. Pay special attention to curly hair; they tend to be the first to experience frizz!
Tips to prevent frizz in your hair
1-Sleep with a braid or ponytail
Although it may seem like a "silly" thing, this simple gesture prevents your hair from rubbing and frictioning against your pillow, reducing frizz. Moreover, if you opt for a braid, in the morning you'll wake up with very natural waves that you may have not seen in your hair before. Are you willing to give it a try?
2-Avoid hair products with sulfates and silicones
Take the time to read the labels of products, this will save you disappointments and the need to change shampoos frequently.
Avoid hair products that contain sulfates and silicones, as they dry out the scalp and damage the cuticles, leaving the hair flat and lacking body.
If you wash your hair daily with a sulfate-containing shampoo, you should know that you strip away the natural oils from your hair, which promotes frizz. On the other hand, silicones adhere to the hair and are not easily rinsed out, as they repel water instead of dissolving in it. By creating an impermeable barrier around the hair, they prevent water loss but do not provide the necessary nutrients and hydration for the hair. Therefore, while the immediate result may seem positive, over time it makes the hair dull, dehydrated, and weak.
So what should you do then? Natural hair products will work great for you, try, for example, a natural shampoo without sulfates and silicones, as the use of natural ingredients that provide nutrients to restructure the hair fiber will help you avoid frizz.
3-Intense hydration. Have you considered adding a natural restorative spray to your hair care routine?
Another ideal option for frizzy hair is to hydrate it with a hair spray immediately after washing. The Hair Radiance Keratin Spray facilitates styling, helps detangle the hair, and also protects your mane from heat damage by acting directly on the hair root, deeply nourishing it and combating frizz.
These two tips can help you, but we have more... The product you need if you were about to give up the fight against frizz. Pause for a moment and read this, you might change your mind!
