Natural Ways to Combat Frizz
You can relate to the struggle of having your hair puff up the moment you step outside.
You’d love to have it fixed forever but you’d rather not ruin your hair with harsh chemicals or spend a lot of money at a professional salon.
Here are some of our top favorite natural solutions for putting your frizzy troubles to rest!
1. Be Gentle with Styling
Frizz generally comes from a lack of moisture and damaged hair does not hold in moisture very well.
This means if you are too rough with your hair then products may not be able to help you.
Examples of being rough with your hair are having very tight hairstyles that pull on your roots. This prolonged strain on your roots may increase hair loss. Leaving even a little space for your roots to breathe can do a lot for your roots.
Another mistake with hairstyles is being too rough when tying your hair with hair ties. It’s possible to tie complicated styles while being gentle!
2. Handling Wet Hair The Right Way
Your hair is also fragile when it is wet. This is because our strands are made up of keratin fibers that are absorbent to water and trap water particles. When your hair is swelled up with water, the cuticles are exposed and more prone to breakage.
This is why your hair looks longer when it’s wet. And if you have curly hair, your hair is more porous and your hair takes longer to dry.
This is why you need to be gentle with your hair when it’s wet. Use a leave-in conditioner like the WOW Hair Revitalizer Spray if you are looking to nourish your follicles. For curly hair, use a diffuser with your hairdryer if you don’t have the time to air dry.
3. Staying Away From Harsh Ingredients
It may seem like these big shampoo companies know what they’re doing but have you realized how complicated their ingredient labels are? It’s supposed to help us make a more informed decisions but those complicated names just make it more difficult to understand!
Ingredients like alcohol and sulfates are abundant in traditional shampoos. These ingredients are notorious for being well-known irritants for your scalp. They also strip away the natural oils from your hair which often leads to having frizzy hair.
Look for products that rely on the power of natural ingredients rather than synthetic chemicals like Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, and more!
Our top recommendations are the WOW Red Onion Shampoo and Conditioner Set and the WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo Set.
