Why Is My Hair So Frizzy?

Frizzy hair can be a nuisance and sometimes it feels like nothing we do can combat it – we know the feeling. The first thing you need to do to combat frizzy hair is to first know why it happens in the first place. Once you know the cause of the problem, you can try to prevent it or at least know what to do to fix it. Unfortunately, some of us have naturally frizzy hair, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to combat it!

Here’s why your hair might be frizzy and how to combat it!

Humidity

The most common cause of frizzy hair is humidity. Have you ever found that your hair gets frizzy more often when you’re on holiday in a warmer country? Humidity makes hair frizzy by exposing dried-out hair to outside moisture. Heat makes things swell, and that’s basically what happens when your hair gets frizzy.

Washing Your Hair in Hot Water

Most of us love a warm shower, but did you know you are actually damaging your hair? Remember what we said about humidity? The excessive amount of steam from a hot shower combined with hot water causes your hair to dry out and become exposed to excess moisture. We aren’t saying that you need to take cold showers, but it’s better for your hair if you turn down the heat.

Heat Styling

Do you see that there’s a common theme here? Using heat to style your hair again dries it out and exposes it to excess moisture. We aren’t going to tell you to stop using heat products altogether, but it’s best to take precautions and use methods to give your hair a little bit of TLC. If you use heat products often, make sure that you treat yourself to a mask now and then to hydrate it and prevent it from drying out and becoming damaged.

Combatting Frizzy Hair

There is no cure for frizzy hair, it will keep coming back time and time again, but there are things you can do to combat it. Hydrating your hair and reducing heat exposure are by far the most effective ways to combat frizz and keep your hair feeling healthier.

Here’s how you can combat frizzy hair and feel more confident:

  • Use heat styling products less often
  • Take colder showers (they don’t have to be cold, just not like the Firey pits of hell)
  • Use kinder products that aren’t too harsh on your hair
  • Let your hair dry naturally
  • Brush your hair to avoid tangles
  • Invest in a frizz protector for when you go on holiday
  • Give your hair a little TLC with a moisture mask or conditioner
