If you have natural curly hair, there will be times that it will get frizzy especially on hot and humid days. Frizzy hair is caused by dry and damaged hair. That’s why taking good care of your hair minimizes frizzy hair. Here are some tips on reducing frizzy hair.
- Do not use strong shampoos. Many shampoos have harsh chemicals. Make sure to dilute the shampoo with a little amount of water before applying it on your hair. Chemicals in shampoo can damage your hair and make it look dry.
- Protect your hair from excessive heat. Heat from curling irons and straightening irons can damage your hair. They are not recommended to be used everyday because they can make your hair very dry and brittle. Also protect your hair from excessive sun exposure. Sun has harmful ultraviolet rays that can cause severe damage to your hair. When you are under the sun, use a hat or an umbrella to shield your hair from the sun’s harmful rays.
- Use hair conditioner daily. It is important to use hair conditioner because it softens and moisturizes your hair. When using hair conditioner, let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing it off to make sure that your hair is fully moisturized. Rinse it very well and make sure that no residue is left on your hair because this can make dirt to stick into it.
- Avoid too much brushing. Too much brushing of your hair can damage it. Friction from your brush rubs off the protective layer of your hair, thus making it brittle and frizzy. You can use light pomade to hold your hairstyle so you can minimize too much brushing.
Proper hair care will prevent you from getting frizzy hair. Preventing hair damage and keeping it moisturized will keep your hair manageable.
