For folks with curly hair, frizz can be a common issue that’s hard to eliminate. Sometimes it’s the heat, sometimes it’s lack of moisture. Other times, who knows what the problem really is.

Either way, when frizz shows up there’s no way to ignore it and for good reason. When your hair is frizzy, it can be an indication that there is dryness or damage that needs to be addressed.

Flyaways, split ends, and broken strands can be caused by overmanipulation, subjecting your hair to harsh chemicals, excessive processing, or constant heat from blow drying or straightening.

It takes a combination of tactics -- working from the inside and outside in tandem -- to combat the annoyance. The way to get rid of the frizzies is by moisturizing and protecting your strands against the elements both natural and self-induced.
