Frizz! It’s the number one complaint of naturals no matter the hair type, length or texture. Sometimes it can seem like no matter what we do or how hard we work on our styles, we still end up with that halo of frizz on our crowns. Some of us have learned to simply accept it, but there are things that we can do to minimize or eliminate it altogether. Read on for some frizz fighting tips to get rid of frizz near our roots.
1. Apply Products from Root to Tip
The number one cause of frizz is dehydrated hair. Dry hair that’s thirsty will draw water out of the atmosphere which causes frizz. So often we moisturize the length of our hair and forget our roots, but they need TLC too. An easy fix for frizzy roots is to try to apply product closer to your scalp so that your hair is moisturized from root to tip.
Ensuring our hair is moisturized starts from the cleansing process when we apply our deep conditioners. However, many of us naturals are guilty of only applying our deep conditioners toward the ends of our hair. By doing so, we may deny our roots of the much needed care that they need.
One useful tip is to thin out your deep conditioner with water in a bowl and apply it to your hair using an applicator brush like you would a relaxer section by section from root to tip. In doing so you will ensure that the entire length of your hair is moisturized.
