You know your hair type, but do you know your frizz type?
Here at NaturallyCurly.com, we often talk about different hair types. Before stumbling upon our site, you may not have even known about different types of curls, but you do now!
Now that we’ve given you the information on your hair type, how about diagnosing the types of frizz you’re having? Different products and techniques work to control different types of frizz, so the first thing is figuring out your frizz type.
12 Frizz Types
1. Surface FrizzThis type of frizz only occurs on the surface of the hair. That is, it’s on the outer layers of your hair, but not on the layers underneath. Almost any Curly has dealt with this type of frizz. If you live in a humid climate, you probably deal with this all the time since humidity can definitely “activate” surface frizz.
2. Poof Ball FrizzAs the name suggests, the poof ball frizz looks like a giant poof ball. Curls are nearly unrecognizable once they’ve reached this state. To be blunt, it looks like a hot mess.
3. Application FrizzThis type of frizz results from over-applying products, thus touching your hair too much.
4. Spider Web FrizzThis type is very much like Fly-a-way Frizz, except it tends to linger around the top of the hair. Different strands of hair separate from one another, creating a “web” look on the surface of the hair. Causes for this type of frizz range from the wind to not enough hold. Additionally, Spider Web Frizz can be the result of a bad reaction to hair products.
5. Halo Frizz
Frizz that centers on the crown of your head.
