Why is my Hair so Frizzy?

No matter your hair type, anyone can find themselves battling frizz. But once you understand what causes frizz, you can take steps to treat and prevent it.

Below, we’ve put together the main causes of frizzy hair and some helpful tips on how you can combat it.

What causes frizz?

Frizzy hair is caused by two things: the weather, and the condition of your hair.

The main cause of frizz is a lack of moisture in your hair. This causes your hair to seek out and absorb moisture from the air, causing frizz - which also explains why humidity can make frizz even worse.

Frizz control tips…
Stop rough towel drying your hair!

While you may think drying your hair with a towel is better than using a hairdryer, wrapping your hair in an abrasive bath towel can draw the oils out of your hair, resulting in frizz. Instead, try a microfibre towel such as AQUIS and gently squeeze out moisture instead of rough drying.

Stop over-brushing!

Brushing your hair too much can cause breakage, and when you have brittle lengths and split ends, your hair is more prone to frizz.

Always use heat protection!

Frequently using heated styling tools can strip hair of its natural moisture, leading to dry and damaged strands that are vulnerable to frizz. Make sure you always use a heat protector to help prevent damage.

Don’t wash your hair with hot water!

While a hot shower may feel relaxing, it’s not doing your hair or scalp any favours. Hot water strips your scalp and hair of the natural oils that keep your hair moisturised and shiny, and that lack of moisture leads to more frizz. It’s an easy fix - just turn down the temperature when you’re washing your hair.

Do get regular trims at the salon!

Brittle, split ends are extremely prone to frizz and the longer you leave them, the worse they’ll get. We recommend regular trims to prevent dry ends.

Do boost your hair with moisture!

The key to getting your dehydrated hair back on track is all about boosting your strands with hydration. The easiest way to achieve that is by using a moisturising hair care system – products specifically designed to moisturise the hair. Using a weekly moisturising treatment and hydrating serums and oils will help too.
