Maybe we weren't made for this
Hi, I'm Emilie, I'm 12. And I have 3b hair
My father, (who btw, has curlier hair than me) the one to give me the burden of curly hair, says that because "my my body was not made for this region of the earth" I have frizzy hair. And "when I traveled to Germany with him one day, I wouldn't have frizzy hair", "Emilie, when you go to oxford in England to study obstetrics, you won't have frizzy hair." Yes, my family is 60% German. And my dad said that when he went to Germany, his hair wasn't frizzy. Have any of you traveled to Europe? Are these statements true? I do live in the humid state or georgia, so that's a major frizz factor.
I don't think this goes for every part of Europe, but I'm living in the Netherlands and frizz is not really a problem for me. I guess this is partly just my hair, but the weather is average over here and doesn't have a lot of extremes, so it's fairly easy to keep my curls happy.
I've been to Germany many, many times in my life (my grandparents used to live there) and I can't remember it being very different from the Netherlands in terms of humidity.
I've been to the UK as well (very recently, as a matter of fact) and I've encountered some rainy days, which resulted in just a tiny bit of frizz, which was surprising. However, I now know why. The gel I used contained polyquats, and if I use those and my hair is wet, I get frizz. We were out all day so my hair got wet and stuff, but the polyquats explain.
Nowhere in Europe I've had problems, not even in warmer countries such as Spain, Greece, France or Czech Republic.
Weather can be a very important factor for (reducing) frizz. Knowing your hair properties is even more important, and can help you determine how to battle frizz. This link can help you to determine your properties: Curly Hair Basics | Live Curly Live Free
I live in Belgium, next to the Netherlands and Germany, and frizz is a problem for me...
So I guess it just depends a bit... (I am a 2c btw)
