4 Ways to Tame Frizzy Hair for Good

Frizzy, dull, splitting hair begins to appear in wintertime, just when you want to look ready for a new year. The cold weather air may be low in humidity, drying out hair strands. As your locks become more brittle, they start to lack shine and bounce, appearing lifeless and feeling rough to the touch. Curly and coily locks can be especially expressive in dehydration, becoming ‘poofy’, frizzy and ‘difficult’ to manage. Update your hair care routine this winter to prevent frizzy strands and restore a glossy shine. 

 

  1. Avoid leaving your hair damp after washing or using excessive heat styling.

If hair is left damp after washing, the hair is more vulnerable to breakage. As hair is washed, it absorbs moisture, simultaneously losing elasticity and strength. During drying the hair with a towel, putting it into an updo in a wet state, or even going directly to bed, your fragile locks are more likely to tear in their swelled-up state. Dry your hair with a hairdryer at low temperature, then adjust it to higher heat until the locks are completely dry, before styling. 

When hair is treated with excessive heat, it is also vulnerable to breaking. In this scenario, the hair shaft becomes too dry. Signs of heat damage include split ends, rough or stringy texture, difficulty brushing hair, knots and tangles, and hair strands snapping. In the winter, when cold conditions dehydrate the hair even more than in higher-humidity seasons, avoid leaving your hair in extreme conditions.

  1. Use broad-toothed hairbrushes and silk pillowcases.

When hair is already ‘wild and wacky’, using the wrong brush worsens the situation. Plastic combs can increase static. Further, their design is usually not optimised for combing from the top of the scalp to the tips of the strands, and forcible tugging will tear hair strands. Use a broad-toothed hairbrush to reduce frizz. 

Contrary to cotton, which is a highly breathable material suitable for nighttime rest, silk can help the hair retain moisture—rather than absorbing it into the fabric itself. Its smoother surface means less friction, which equates to fewer opportunities for hair strands to snap.

  1. Apply a hair or scalp mask once a week.

Masks contain oils, extracts, and ingredients that help bind moisture to the hair strand. Hair masks can also be formulated to support the health of the scalp, supporting stronger and thicker locks.
