Tips and tricks for frizz-free hair

Frizzy hair can be a real source of frustration for many of us. It can quickly mess up your look and undermine your confidence. But with the right knowledge and approach, you can effectively combat frizz and enjoy smooth, shiny hair that always looks its best. Let's discover how to prevent and combat it.

What causes frizz?

To effectively combat frizz, it's important to understand what causes it. Frizz occurs when the outer layer of your hair, the cuticle, becomes damaged and opens up. This can be caused by various factors, including:

  1. Dryness: Dry hair is more susceptible to frizz because it absorbs more moisture from the air, causing the hair shaft to swell and frizz to occur.
  2. Heat and styling: Excessive use of heat tools such as hair dryers, straighteners, and curling irons can damage the hair cuticle, leading to frizz.
  3. Chemical treatments: Coloring, bleaching, and chemical relaxers can alter the structure of your hair and damage the cuticle, resulting in frizz.
  4. Environmental factors: Factors such as humidity, air conditioning, wind, and cold temperatures can all contribute to frizzy hair.


How to prevent frizz?

Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to prevent frizz and keep your hair smooth and shiny:

  1. Hydrate: Keep your hair hydrated by regularly using conditioner and occasionally applying a nourishing hair mask. This helps to smooth the hair cuticle and prevent frizz.
  2. Reduce heat: Limit the use of heat tools and always use a product with heat protection before applying heat to your hair. The temperature of the tools should never exceed 200 degrees Celsius!
  3. Protect against environmental factors: Wear a hat, cap, or scarf in windy or cold weather to protect your hair from these elements. Also, use products with UV protection to shield your hair from harmful sun rays.
  4. Choose the right styling products: Use products designed to combat frizz, such as anti-frizz serums, creams, and oils. These products help to smooth the hair cuticle and prevent moisture from penetrating the hair. Check out our My Hero Wonder Spray and Go With The Glow Hair Oil. Use them in that order too.
  5. Dry your hair properly: Gently blot your hair dry with a towel instead of rubbing it vigorously. This is super important because your hair is most vulnerable when wet. Let your hair air dry whenever possible.


Combat frizz with these handy tips:

  1. Use a wide-tooth comb: This helps to gently remove tangles from your hair without further damaging the hair cuticle. Too much tension on the hair can cause it to 'overstretch' and thus damage it.
  2. Sleep on a silk pillowcase: Silk helps reduce friction and prevents your hair from getting tangled at night, reducing frizz. It really makes a difference!
  3. Visit your hairstylist regularly: Regular haircuts help remove split ends and prevent further damage to the hair cuticle.
  4. Experiment with looks: Try out different hairstyles, such as braids or a ponytail, to protect your hair from damage and frizz. The less you expose your hair to environmental factors, the less damage you can cause to your hair.


With these tips and tricks, you can effectively combat frizzy hair and enjoy smooth, shiny hair that always looks its best. So say goodbye to frizz and hello to beautiful hair! For more tips, feel free to contact us personally at [email protected]
