Frizz Forecast: Your Guide for Avoiding Frizz on Natural Hair
1. Avoding Frizz in Dry Climates
These are the days when the air is dry, with little to no moisture whatsoever. To be honest, this just may be the type of climate we’ll choose to have just for the sake of having a good hair day. However, you can have a dry frizz episode on days like this. According to Unilver’s Senior Manager Hair, Leon Van Gorkom, “static is a form of dry frizz.” On days like this you can opt for a gel like TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Gel to keep static and flyaways at bay while locking in your curly style.
2. Avoiding Frizz on Humid Days
Icky, and sticky days that usually begin to peak when spring solstice is drawing to an end can wreak havoc on your curls. What causes this? “Hair absorbs water from the environment,” says Leon. On days like this, use heavy-duty products (not to be confused with heavy feeling) that will repel frizz. TRESemmé Climate Protection Mousse is formulated to hold your styles in place on the most humid days. Style your clean hair with this after your washing routine.
3. Avoiding Frizz Rainy Days
Rain, rain, go away! A drop of water on your naturally curly hair can cause frizz. A drop of water on your heat-styled natural hair will cause the hair to curl or completely revert to it’s natural state. Finish your style with a hairspray that will set your look and prevent frizz, like TRESemmé Climate Protection Finishing Spray, that works to protect hair from weather. Consider this spray your hair’s invisible umbrella.
3. Preventing Frizz with Wash & Care Products
For best results for avoiding frizz on natural hair, consider updating your wash and care routine with products that will help you get through frizzy hair season. Products like Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner gently cleanses and seals your hair cuticles leaving you with smooth and manageable hair as well as frizz control. We especially love this for heat styles. On your normal curly hair, use Dove Absolute Curls Ultra Nourishing Shampoo and Dove Absolute Curls Ultra Nourishing Conditioner to cleanse, add definition, moisturize and smooth away frizz.
