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.
