Frizzy hair is every girl’s worst nightmare. Even with the cutest clothes and most flawless makeup, if your hair is frizzy and damaged, your whole look can be ruined. Frizz is a common problem, especially in humid climates. However, there are three easy ways to prevent frizz, and by changing your hair care habits your frizzy locks will be a thing of the past.
- Be Gentle When You Dry
When it comes to drying our hair after washing it, many of us make common mistakes which lead to frizz. Blow-drying several times a week actually dries hair out severely, causing damage which inevitably leads to frizz. By reducing the amount of times we blow-dry our hair each week, we are allowing our hair to heal from the effects of this damaging heat.
Ladies who dry their hair with a towel aren’t in the clear either, however. Those who aggressively rub their hair with a harsh terry cloth towel are causing frizz by roughening up fragile hair shafts, leading to split ends. Instead of using this method to dry your hair, opt for wrapping wet hair in a t-shirt and allowing it to air dry.
- Choose The Right Pillow
It may be surprising to learn that your pillow can cause serious frizz. Common pillowcase materials like cotton can actually damage your hair as the friction of the follicles against the harsh material lead to breakage.
Instead, choose a silk or satin pillowcase. These materials are much more gentle on your hair and will prevent the breakage which leads to unsightly frizz.
- Change Your Shampoo
Many common drugstore shampoos can severely dry out your hair, leading to frizz. This is because of an ingredient called sodium lauryl sulfate which is common in many shampoos. This ingredient cleans your hair by stripping it of its natural oils which actually keep your hair soft and healthy.
Instead, opt for a cleansing conditioner like Wen By Chaz’s 5-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner. This Sephora popular product is free of sodium lauryl sulfate and relies on natural ingredients to both clean and nourish damaged hair.
Chaz Dean‘s Cleansing Conditioner both cleans and hydrates your hair, undoing years of damage. By switching to a cleansing conditioner, hair that was once dry and frizzy will instantly appear soft, shiny and healthy.
