For curly girls, frizzy hair is just a part of life. Our products promise to keep our curls frizz-free and the websites that we use give us dozens of tips to combat frizz. We're usually more concerned about frizz through the hair shaft and at the ends of our curls, but what about frizz at the roots? It’s especially important to take note of frizzy roots in the winter, since the cold weather can be even more damaging to our hair.
Check for damage
If you’re experiencing more frizz than usual, particularly at the roots, your hair is probably damaged. Buy a shampoo specially formulated for “dry” or “damaged” hair. When you’re using the shampoo, gently massage the scalp — scrubbing at the roots will disrupt the curl pattern and cause more frizz.
