How To Tame Frizzy Hair

If you struggle with frizz, you’re not alone. Those of us with dry, chemically treated or damaged hair are all prone to flyaways– but theres an easy solution: keep hair cuticles as smooth and soft as possible. Ahead, we share our 10 top tips on how to stop frizzy hair 

What Causes Frizzy Hair? 

Frizz goes hand in hand with dry hair. Just as plant roots search for their nearest source of water in the soil, hair reaches for its nearest source of moisture in the air. The result? A head full of frizz! So, how do you get rid of frizzy hair? The trick is to keep your strands hydrated enough that they don’t search for moisture elsewhere.  

How To Stop Frizzy Hair 

  1. Get A Haircut

    Nothing causes damage and frizz like split ends that travel up the cuticle. Our advice? Get a haircut as soon as you notice fraying, particularly if you live somewhere humid.  

     

    Fudge Tip: While we love a layered look, these hairstyles are more prone to frizz. Instead, opt for a blunt cut that weighs down the hair.  

  2. Use A Hydrating Shampoo

    Use A Hydrating Shampoo

    There’s nothing worse than an overly-drying shampoo that strips the hair of its essential oils. It’s a frizz-fest waiting to happen! Instead, apply shampoos with hydrating ingredients that absorb moisture from the air and create a protective coating around your strands to keep frizz at bay, like glycerin.  

     

    Our LUMINIZER MOISTURE BOOST SHAMPOO is a great frizzy hair shampoo. It provides 48 hours of weightless hydration to leave hair 12 times smoother and help stop frizz. It’s also formulated with a micellar oil complex that gently cleanses, moisturises and illuminates each strand, while our unique Opti-PLEX™ technology strengthens from the inside out. Expect hair to feel cleaner and stronger, and look smoother and shinier.

    We’ll let you in on a secret: conditioner is your best weapon in dealing with frizz.

    Protect Hair From Heat

    To stop frizz, it’s best to avoid hot styling tools – but if you just can’t resist (we know the feeling!), remember to apply a heat protector to reduce damage to the hair. It should be infused with hydrating ingredients and shield up to at least 220°C. 

     

    Our Blow Dry Aqua Primer is the ultimate heat protectant. Not only does it offer heat protection up to 230°C, but it’s formulated with hydrating hyaluronic acid and our WEATHER-SHIElD™ technology to protect hair from humidity and frizz. Softer, smoother and shinier hair awaits!

    Add An Extra Dose Of Moisture

    The best way to stop frizz? Comb a leave-in treatment through your hair to immediately lock in moisture after you shower. Look for products that condition and smooth, while building a barrier on the hair to keep moisture in the air from getting under the cuticle. 

     

    Our One Shot Protein Hair Treatment boasts a nourishing and repairing complex of creatine, guarana, wheat and silk proteins to help strengthen and repair damaged hair and keep frizz at bay. It’s also enhanced with a silicone complex that forms a shield along the length of the hair to help protect from unnecessary moisture.

    Touch Up Frizz With Hairspray And A Toothbrush

    We know it sounds a little odd but, trust us, this is a brilliant frizz-taming hack! Instead of overwhelming your strands with a thick layer of hairspray, spritz it onto a clean toothbrush then brush it over your hairline and parting to keep flyaways down.

  10. Keep Showers Warm – Not Hot

    We’ll be the first to admit that we love a hot shower, but it doesn’t do much good to hair. Hot water can cause the cuticle to raise, resulting in dry, frizzy hair that needs more moisture. Of course, we’re not saying you should stand shivering in freezing water. Just keep the water warm rather than steaming hot.  

And that’s how to stop frizzy hair! Shop our best frizzy hair shampoo and conditioner here.
