Fighting frizz is something all curly-haired women have to deal with. But once the weather gets warmer, high humidity and scorching heat make the struggle even harder. We’ve put together a list of 5 products and tools to help you end your battle with frizzy hair.
Frizz Fighting Tools
1. Microfiber Towel
Avoid terrycloth towels, and use a microfiber towel like Hotheads Hand Dry Hair Towel instead. Microfiber towels not only reduce frizz but speed up drying time. Microfiber is a super-absorbent fabric that soaks up excess water. Microfiber does not disturb the cuticle – instead it smooths it down, reducing frizz.
Anti-humectants are products that repel moisture and block out the frizz by preventing the intrusion of moisture into the hair in a humid environment.
Additionally, products with anti-humectant capabilities coat, flatten and seal the external cuticle layer of the hair strands preventing frizz. Oyin Handmade Hair Dew is a great, moisturizing anti-humectant.
There’s no such thing as too much moisture when you are fighting frizz. Frizz happens when the strands of your hair lift up off your head and outward to quench their thirst from moisture in the air.
4. Glycerin-Free Products
Say goodbye to glycerin! Find products that do not contain glycerin, which can dissolve and remove hair color from semi-permanent dyes or larger dye molecules such as reds.
Glycerin, a humectant, can also cause or worsen dry hair in extremely dry climates, adding to the problem of frizz. You can combat frizz from the start with AG Hair Cosmetics Xtramoist Moisturizing Shampoo.
