The Grammys Red Carpet Beauty: Curly (Frizzy) Hair

This year at the 49th Grammy Awards, rock stars like Shakira, Hilary Duff and Christina Aguilera made frizz look fierce! While most of us shudder at the thought of fly-aways, these gals aren't afraid to flaunt their fros.


Frizz is caused by many things; namely chemical over processing, blow drying too much or over exposure to chlorine. Also, the use of products in your hair that contain high contents of alcohol such as mousse, gel, hairspray can cause frizz. However, if your hair is naturally curly, it is also probably naturally frizzy.

To learn how to fight the frizzies,

  • If you normally use a lot of product in your hair for hold, try using a pomade which will create the same feel as mousse, gel or spray does, but won't dry out your hair because it contains oil.
  • Try a deep conditioner or a hair treatment that can help to restore your hair with the moisture it is lacking.
  • If you have coarse hair, it can be helpful to use a flat iron or a curling iron on your hair to close your hair cuticle and make it smooth and shiny.
  • Regardless of what is causing frizz, rinsing with cool water will help to seal moisture in your hair.

Hilary looks terrible. Her hairstylist and makeup artist must have been on something.

What is wrong with Hilary? Is this her new look or something? It's not edgy or cute, I like "With Love" Hilary not "I woke up in a gutter" Hilary.

Shakira's sooo beautiful. I love how tan Christina looks. It really makes her eyes stand out. I don't know why, but I really just think Hilary Duff looks hideous at the awards! yuck. I usually really love her.

I wish Shakira would do something with her hair....she is so tiny and that big ass hair overpowers her. Plus, it always looks frizzy and dried out.....which is a common problem with chicas with natural curly hair (know from personal experience).

Think they all look great. I'm soooooo bored of the same stupid looks. Everyone with pin-straight hair...all same length (long). What ever happened to individuality??
