Best Ways to Prevent frizzy hair


Wash hair less frequently

It sounds a little counterintuitive, but washing your hair less frequently can actually lead to healthier, frizz-free hair.

The detergents in shampoo are very effective at washing your hair, but they can also wash away your hair's natural oils that are necessary for healthy hair.

When you wash your hair every day, you're stripping your hair and scalp of its natural oils that keep your hair shiny. Your scalp, now dry, has to produce even more oils to maintain health. This leads to hair that is simultaneously greasy and dry - it's producing too many oils that are getting stripped away before they have the chance to do their job.

Try washing your hair every other day to slowly allow your scalp to adjust. Then try moving on to once every three days, then on to once a week.

Invest in a silk pillowcase

Most pillowcases are made of cotton, which naturally suck in moisture, and can have a rough texture, causing your hair and skin to look dull despite your best efforts.

Invest in a silk pillowcase

You may want to invest in a silk pillowcase or hair wrap. Silk's smooth texture allows for hair to glide across the surface without being agitated or damaged in your sleep.

The best silk for hair is mulberry silk - the fineness of its fibers make the material extra smooth - and while it may be hard to get past the price tag, they last for years and help to give your hair a little extra shine.

Take cool showers

Taking hot showers, while seemingly innocuous, may be the cause behind your frizzy hair.

Frizzy hair is caused primarily by dryness, and hot water can strip hair of its natural oils, causing dryness, which then of course causes frizziness. Cool water allows hair to be cleansed without causing damage.

You don't have to take an ice cold shower every morning, but try lowering your shower's temperature to as cool as you're comfortable with. You can also try washing your hair separately from the rest of your body, using cool water only on your head.

Go for regular trims

Trimming your hair regularly prevents frizzy hair before it begins.

As hair grows, the follicles inevitably get damaged and become split ends. Once the hair splits, the fracture can travel up the strands and leave you with a dry, frizzy mess.

Getting your hair trimmed regularly and removing the split ends stops this from happening and lets your hair grow healthy and strong. You don't have to go to the salon every week either - a half inch trim once every two months should do the trick.

Things to Avoid

Most commonly, frizzy hair is a result of over shampooing and frequent use of heat to un-frizz them. To prevent frizzy hair, stop shampooing your hair every day. But, if you want to wash them daily, use conditioner instead of shampoo. Make a DIY hair mask at home or apply hair oil on weekends or before wash. Wash your hair when they are dirty, oily, and smell bad only. Do not brush them often as it might lock in static in your hair. You can also use hair serums and leave-in conditioners to defrizz and style them.

Stop using heat products

The main cause of frizz is a lack of moisture in the hair. Using heat products such as hair dryers, straighteners, and curling irons can strip your hair of its natural oils and cause permanent damage to your hair.

Instead of using a hair dryer, try towel drying your hair or using a hair dryer that has a "cool" setting. It will take a little longer to get ready in the mornings, but it's a small price to pay for shiny, healthy hair.

Instead of heat styling tools, try using heat-free styling. Rollers can give you fabulous overnight curls without doing any damage to your hear. Plus, your hair will be ready as soon as you wake up - just take the rollers out and you're done!

Brush your hair often

Brushing your hair smooths down the hair shaft and better distributes its natural oils, giving you shiny, healthy-looking hair. It can also stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth. If you have straight hair, it's a great idea to brush often and well to give your hair a little boost.

Just ensure that, if you have straight hair, you're not brushing while your hair is wet. Your hair is much more prone to breakage when it's wet and you can worsen the problem and give yourself flyaways.

Use hair masks

Hair masks are great ways to give your hair an extra boost. These products contain oils that give your hair shine and smooth down any frizz.

Look for hair products with little to no perfumes or essential oils, as these can actually dry your hair further and do more harm than good. It's best to use products with as few ingredients as possible so you know exactly what you're putting on your head.

It's also worth noting that some oils work better than others, so here are a few oils that work the best for preventing and treating frizz:

Coconut oil - Protects against heat damage and can help to restore frizzy and dry hair. Also helps the hair to retain moisture for longer-lasting benefits. It's also incredibly potent, so make sure to use only a little bit at a time, or as directed on the label.

Jojoba Oil - Jojoba oil is great and commonly used in haircare products because it shares many characteristics with your body's natural oils. It won't mess with your body's natural chemical balance, so it is ideal for those with sensitive scalps and dandruff.

Olive Oil - Olive oil, when applied to the hair, coats the shaft, which locks in moisture and keeps it shiny and frizz-free. It is ideal for dull, dandruff-prone hair.
