One of the main things that stops our curls from reaching their full potential, even to the point in which others wouldn’t even class us as curly-haired, is frizz.
Wikipedia describes frizz as
“hair that does not align with the surrounding hairs but stands up or curls independently, creating a fuzzy irregular texture. The three main causes of frizz are genetics, hair damage and humidity.”
It is one of the most frustrating issues the curly-community is faced with, as we are easily prone to frizz formation. This is not only due to curly hair textures being naturally dry but can often be down to the hair care products we use, without even being aware of it.
Many shampoos, conditioners and styling products may promise us the world in terms of curl enhancement, moisture and hydration when the reality is often quite different.
While some do certainly contain moisturizing ingredients, these are cancelled out by the drying alcohols such as ethanol, propyl, and others. Add to that the presence of silicones and sulphates, which cause a lot of residue and you’ve got yourself a recipe for frizz disaster.
Therefore, it’s super important to carefully read through your chosen haircare products’ ingredients to ensure that, they feature fatty alcohols such as cetyl and lauryl, as opposed to the drying alcohols listed above.
If you’re already paying special attention to your shampoos and other hair care products, and are still in need of quality frizz control, due to factors such as humidity or simply genetics, check out these six fuzz cures!
