Wavy hair tends to be more porous, which makes them more prone to frizzing because the cuticle of hair with a natural wave or curl will begin to twist as soon as it gets in contact with moisture. Damaged hair may appear dry at the ends, which leads to frizzy hair, while ageing hair can be frizz-prone for different reasons, as it gets thinner and drier.
Here are some tips how to keep your hair smooth and sleek, no matter the weather.
- A haircut helps if your hair is frizzing because it’s damaged. A cut snips off the dry ends. The right hair style may help “big” hair sit flatter and look smoother but won’t necessarily solve frizz.
- Overstyling with heated tools often dries your hair out. However, if you have coarse, wavy hair, leaving it damp can actually cause it to puff out as it dries. Drying it thoroughly will usually leave it smoother.
- Use a hair conditioner and blast your hair with cold water after rinsing it out, to help seal the hair cuticle.
- Look for dryers, straighteners and brushes with ionic technology as these help seal the cuticle as you dry. Go over hair with a round brush and hairdryer to make it smooth – this even works on dry hair.
