Frizzy Hair Remedies: 8 Easy Tips to Get Rid of Tutsang

These frizzy hair remedies will put an end to frizz madness.

Frizzy hair occurs when the hair takes in moisture and salt from the air. When these go underneath your hair, your hair form bumps, which is what you see as frizz. This hair problem is common in humid places because of the abundance of moisture in the air. Hence, including frizzy hair remedies in your hair care routine can make a big difference. Here are some of them.

1. A blunt haircut is a no-no.

When your hair is evenly cut all around, hair tends to become more voluminous—but not in the best way. Most of the time, it only looks voluminous in a certain area and more often than not, it’s the lower part making your hair look like a pyramid. However, if you want to sport a dead straight blunt cut, ask your stylist to layer your hair in reverse, with shorter strands inside and the longer ones falling on the outer part of your hair.

2. Wash your hair with a shampoo that has the right anti-frizz formulation.

Frizz is usually the reason why you have a bad hair day. To avoid it, your frizzy hair remedy is to use a shampoo that’s specially made to tame frizz. Doing so will help make your hair more manageable.

Editor’s tip: Looking for more frizzy hair remedies? You can try Love Beauty and Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Smooth and Serene Shampoo. It has plant-based cleansers and eco-friendly ingredients that work to calm frizz and make your hair smooth and soft. You can also use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner for that sleek, straight hair. Meanwhile, if you need to freshen up and smoothen out stray strands, just apply a drop of Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream. 

3. Apply leave-on conditioner or styling cream on your hair right after washing.

One of the important frizzy hair remedies is the leave-in conditioner which is especially helpful for those who have wavy locks yet want to maintain their hair’s natural texture. Apply the product on damp hair and leave it to air dry.

4. Find an alternative to towels.

Drying your hair with a towel may be the quickest way to get the excess water off of your hair; however, it creates friction, and friction causes your hair to become frizzy. A better alternative for a towel is using a t-shirt or a soft fabric to squeeze out water from your hair. Then allow your hair to air dry.

5. Comb your mane while it’s damp.

Brushing or combing your hair while it’s wet can make your hair brittle leading to hair breakage. Our tip: after you condition your hair, use a wide-toothed comb to style your locks. If you need to detangle certain parts of your hair, simply run your fingers through your tresses carefully.

6. Blow-dry your hair using the right heat-styling product.

Another culprit that causes frizz and hair damage is using heat styling tools. We’re not telling you to stop using these though. Just make sure you spritz heat protectant on your hair before you blow-dry or iron your hair to avoid heat damage.

Editor’s tip: Use a spray that protects and reduces frizz like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray. It doesn’t just protect your hair from damage caused by the heat but also prolongs the strong, smooth, frizz-free effect from your blow-dry session.

7. Apply hair serum to make hair sleek.

At first, you might think that hair serums are unnecessary since you already have a packed arsenal of hair care products. But being one of the frizzy hair remedies, a drop of hair serum can make a huge difference in your hair. Aside from smoothing out frizz and stray hair, hair serums can help prevent split ends. They act as a barrier between your hair and styling tools. They also make your hair smooth and shiny, so you can bid goodbye to dull and lifeless locks.

Editor’s tip: Use Dove Straight & Silky Shampoo and Dove Straight & Silky Conditioner. This duo has Micro Moisture Serum that calms frizz and leaves your hair smooth and silky. 

8. Make beautiful curls with hair mousse.

Indeed, hair mousse is your curly hair’s best friend.

If you have natural curls and waves, keep a bottle of hair mousse on your dresser. This hair product tames frizz, so you get smooth and well-defined curls and waves. Hair mousse also doesn’t weigh your hair down. Now, walk down the street full of confidence as your curls bounce with life.

Editor’s tip: Get beautifully defined curls by applying a dollop of VO5 Extra Body Mousse on your hair.
