What is frizz?

Do you find yourself fighting against crazy hair on a daily basis?  If your hair curls easily, your hairstyle is difficult to control and at the end of the day you end up with a careless look; you are not the only one! This is produced by the so-called frizz effect, caused because of the static electricity produced by hair friction, resulting in dull hair. 

Why does frizz happen?

Frizz is mainly caused by dehydration. When your hair is dehydrated, it becomes brittle and breaks more easily, causing frizz. Environmental conditions and changing weather also damages your hair. Humidity, wind, rain or low temperatures are also factors that cause your hair to lose its shape and control. Regular exposure to sunlight, use of hair dyes and the heat of hairdryers and straighteners also contribute to hair damaging. You should pay attention! Dry and curly hair are the first to suffer from frizz.

Tips to avoid hair frizz

1- Read the label of the products to avoid annoyances. You won’t have to change your shampoo every now and then. Avoid hair products that contain sulphates and silicones. These ingredients end up drying out the scalp and damaging the cuticles, as well as leaving your hair clumped and without a body. If you wash your hair daily with a sulphate shampoo you should know that you remove the natural oil from your hair and this is how you facilitate frizzy hair. The best option is to use a natural shampoo free from silicones and sulphates.

2- Use a special anti-frizz natural conditioner that hydrates your hair and helps restructure dry and damaged hair while increasing its resistance, nutrition and hydration at the same time. With a conditioner free from sulphates and silicones you will be able to maintain the original structure and shape of your hair. Apply it on the mid-lengths and tips, which are the areas that suffer the most dehydration. If you have thin hair, don't apply it to the roots, it could leave a dirty look. Also, if you have oily hair, it is not necessary to use the natural conditioner in each wash.

3- Use a natural detangling spray to moisturise your hair when right after washing it. This spray makes styling easier, protects your hair from thermal damage, and fights frizz.

4- Use the radiant curls oil serum this is ideal to reinforce the hair fibre and provide protection against external agents. It gives a boost of shine and smoothness to your hair. Add it to your daily routine, you'll thanks us later. Apply it on wet hair without the need for rinsing.

5- Other useful tips to combat the frizz effect are to finish the wash with a jet of cold water, so the cuticles are sealed, dry the hair well with a towel without rubbing so as not to charge the hair with static electricity, and brush your hair to detangle before washing.
