Dry and dehydrated hair tends to frizz

Your hair gets frizzy when it’s dry and that’s why hydration is the secret to preventing frizz.

Whatever the cause of your frizzy hair, the right concoction of hair care products and tips will surely help prevent the problem.

Health experts believe that getting rid of frizzy hair starts in the shower.

Let’s take a look at some tips.

Start by rinsing your hair with cold water

Washing your hair at a slightly cool temperature is good for your hair and prevents excessive dryness and frizz.

Stylists recommend a cold wash at the end as this seals your hair cuticles, trapping all the moisture inside.

While hot showers are relaxing, your hair can’t handle the weight of hot water. So start with a mild temperature and end with cold water.

Do you condition your hair regularly?

Even if you use an anti-frizz or straightening shampoo, that doesn’t mean you can ditch the conditioner.

Conditioners are even more important in winter because they smooth the hair cuticle, protect the hair against heat and make your hair silky and shiny for longer.

However, do not apply conditioner to the scalp as it can make the roots oily.

It’s time to ditch your hair dryer

Experts say blow-drying is a major reason for frizzy hair.

Additionally, excessive use of heat tools can damage your hair in the long run.

The reason for this is that these tools can directly penetrate intense heat into your hair causing your hair strands to lose all of their moisture.

Not only do dehydrated hair strands get frizzy, but they also tend to fall out in excess.

Haircuts are a great way to solve virtually any hair problem. Get your hair cut every 6-8 weeks to get rid of dry, split ends.

If you don’t get a haircut, dry ends will continue to grow and eventually lead to excessively dry, frizzy hair.

Also, get a hair spa from time to time as it is a great way to restore moisture.

Using hair serums is another great hack

Hair serums can give you extremely shiny and shiny hair. They are also great for smoothing frizz and hydrating your locks.

Several hair serums also contain fibers that can protect your hair from sun damage, pollutants, and other chemicals.

Your hair tangles less, which makes styling easier. Straight or curly, the texture of your hair is also enhanced.
