How to tame frizzy hair

2 years ago

Frizzy hair can be a real problem. Central heating, constant heat styling and damp conditions all add up to an eternal frizz bomb.

We wanted to share what we’ve learnt when styling to avoid the issue as much as you can.

Here are our top tips on avoiding frizzy hair:

1. Use a lower heat on your hairdryer. 

When you’re drying your hair, it’s tempting to get through it as fast as possible by styling your hair on the highest heat setting, but this often leads to a frizz overload. Using the lowest heat setting might take a bit longer but it makes all the difference to creating smoother, frizz free locks.

2. Dry your hair in sections and follow the cuticles.

Each hair strand has cuticles running from root to tip like an overlapping tiled roof. When you rough dry your hair, it can upset the pattern of the cuticles, meaning your hair will look and feel frizzy and rough, not smooth and silky. If you have thick, long hair, try drying it in sections following the cuticles from root to tip, by using these clips, which will make the whole experience so much more manageable.

3. Invest in a good brush

Make sure you protect your tresses by investing in a good brush. Cheaper brushes can snag your hair and a softer bristle will massage and stimulate the scalp to aid hair growth too. We love these bamboo ones from Wearth London, £9.50.

4. Use non snag hair ties

If you have long hair and often tie it in a ponytail, make sure you use non snag hair ties like these cute coloured ties from Popband London, £8. If you really want a treat then these silk ones from Cult Beauty, £30, are amazing.

5. Try a heat protective product

Before you dry your hair, add an extra layer of protection with a leave in creme like this bestselling one from Ouai haircare at Net-a-Porter, £22. It won’t leave your hair heavy or weighed down but it will give you less frizz. A weekly intensive treatment like Boucleme's intensive moisture mask, £26 may also be helpful.
