What Is Frizzy Hair?

Ever wondered who creates the poofy monster on your hair and where it comes from? We got to the bottom of it: frizz occurs when the outer layer of your hair, or the cuticle layer, is raised, leading to moisture entering your hair, making it swollen and puffy. This makes your hair look dry and frizzy instead of soft and smooth.

What Causes Frizzy Hair?

If you think that ‘frizzy’ is just your hair type, think again. There’s a lot of factors that contribute to your hair becoming frizzy. This could be your diet, your water intake, the wrong kind of shampoo, medication or chemical treatments. Curly hair is more likely to be frizzy than straighter hair because the strands get more dehydrated. And what’s the solution to dry/dehydrated hair? You guessed it- it’s moisture! The first step would be to make sure you consume enough water (at least 2 liters a day) and improve your diet and lifestyle. If your hair still remains frizzy, worry not, we’re here to help!

One of the solutions to treating frizzy hair is with the help of products available in the market, and there are definitely some great ones out there! The one product you can probably find in your own bathroom right now is conditioner. So remember the golden rule: NEVER skip conditioner! If you feel like your conditioner is weighing your hair down too much and making it oily, try to invert your hair wash procedure: Apply conditioner to your hair first, lightly rinse it with water, and then shampoo your hair! This method has certainly worked wonders for a lot of people. Besides that, you can also let your hair lock in extra moisture by applying a serum to the length of your strands when your hair is damp.


Home Remedies

If you’re in the ‘experimental’ phase where you’re trying different things out to figure out what your hair actually responds well to, we’d definitely recommend home remedies! You don’t really want to spend thousands of rupees on a number of products, only to find out that half of them don’t suit your hair. Plus, natural ingredients are less likely to have an adverse reaction and damage your hair further.
