5 Hair Hacks to Tame Frizzy Hair
Embracing the beauty of your natural curly hair doesn’t mean you have to put up with the hassle of frizz cramping your style. Before we share our favorite frizz fighting hacks and anti-frizz products for natural and textured frizz-prone hair, let’s familiarize ourselves with why frizz exists in the first place!
Frizz happens to everyone, but it affects people with textured hair the most. Static frizz is the result of different individual hair fibers running in multiple directions at the same time. When hair grows in a spiral pattern, the strands are naturally more fragile and the hair cuticle is rougher, which makes it more prone to damage and frizz. Couple those factors with any chemical processing, humidity, and the wrong styling products and there you have a head full of frizz! But not to worry, we have steps to tame frizz and keep your curls and coils looking hydrated, defined, and shiny.
1. Get trims regularly
If you’re wondering how to reduce frizz in curly hair, we recommend getting a trim every six to eight weeks. This will help tidy up your hair and cut away dry, dead, and split ends, which can cause further damage and frizz.
2. Use the right products
Using products that contain ingredients known to be harmful for curly hair could be a major reason why you’re experiencing frizz. Suave for Natural Hair is made up of a sulfate free shampoo and all the products are color safe and contain no parabens or dyes to enhance your natural curl pattern.
3. Apply products when your hair is wet
To ensure that you get the full benefit from any product you are using as frizz control for curly hair, it is best to apply them when your hair is wet. This will allow the product to evenly saturate your curls and help to prevent frizz.
4. Use less heat when looking to calm your frizzy hair
Showering in hot water may feel amazing, but it isn’t the best look for frizzy hair. Instead, wash your hair in lukewarm water. You should also avoid using heat stylers to style your hair when possible. If you do need to use them, always pop on a heat protectant..
5. Be careful how (and when!) you wash your hair
If you have frizz-prone hair, you should not wash it every day. When you do wash, you can help reduce frizz using a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner with hydrating benefits like Suave Sulfate-free Cleansing Shampoo and Moisturizing Curl Conditioner. And pair with a deeply moisturizing leave-in like our Suave Nourish and Strengthen Leave-In Conditioner.
