How to Fight Frizz

How to Fight Frizz

Most often, the thing we seek most when it comes to our hair is manageability. Of course, we would like our hair to shine, bounce and be voluminous. But, more often than not, we are dealing with the practical (and very day-to-day problem) of frizz. 

 Just about everyone- your hair could be straight, wavy or curly - is fighting frizz for the most part. Frizz, like global warming, is universal! 

Types of Frizz 

 The halo frizz is something that straight hair girls are familiar with. It’s hair that stands upright, right round the crown forming, as it is aptly named, a halo!

Or if you’ve got wavy hair and you’re combing your hair too often? You could end up combing out definition, leading to what is called a “pouf ball frizz”. It makes your hair look expanded and this sort of frizz is formed under multiple layers. This is similar to the curly hair frizz, which is also a loss of definition.  You get frizzy curls with no curl pattern visible. 

Every hair type is familiar with frizz that appears at the end of your hair strands, making it look dried out and like split ends. And surface frizz, is the frizz that appears just on top of your hair, seeming like static around your hair. 

Ways to combat frizz 

Embracing your natural texture

It’s a common misnomer that smooth, silky  (straight) hair is easier to manage. Combing your hair out too often may make it lose its natural  movement and bounce. Hair relaxers, heat tools, and frequent blow-drys may help with smooth, sleek hair texture at the moment. (Even those with naturally straight hair, may blast dry their hair for extra shine and smoothness.) What happens in the bargain though is that, that level of hair disruption leads to truckloads of frizz. Why? Because your hair is fighting to get back to its natural form.  The answer to this? Let it be. Give your hair the freedom to spring back to its natural texture. Let the extra wave or curl take shape. It may not be perfectly glossy, and your fly-aways aren’t going to be tucked in smoothly. But your hair will be happier for it. And it will show.  It may sound counter-intuitive, but this is the first step in achieving the healthiest shine! 

Ironically, moisturise

Wait, isn’t frizz caused by too much moisture in the air? Yes, and we need a fight-fire-with-fire approach. The science behind this?  By locking down the moisture in the hair shaft, you prevent the water molecules from the air flowing into the hair shaft. That’s why dry and brittle hair is way more prone to frizz in the humidity. The more water content in your environment, the more you need to condition. (Think of it like oiling your hair before a swim) 

Don’t touch it!

Once you’ve  moisturised, you’ve locked the door to your hair shaft and thrown away the key, right? Wrong! The other battle your hair shaft is fighting? Agitation. The more you mess with it - by coming, brushing, touching or washing- it too often, the more your hair expands, creating opportunity for moisture to seep in, and that’s when you see a pouf ball level of frizz happen. The trick to not doing too much with your hair is to air dry, and comb or detangle once after your wash. Below is a routine to follow, to keep your hair as protected as possible. 

A hair routine  

Fighting frizz is not as product dependent as you’d think. There’s a simple three-step routine anyone can follow to get your hair looking and feeling manageable and frizz-free. The key to this is to nourish your scalp and hydrate your hair. First, make sure your hair is completely and properly wet, before you apply the shampoo. This helps you emulsify and rinse out the shampoo easier. Use a surfactant and sulphate free, gentle cleansing shampoo like the Eh-Maaya Happy Hair Serum Shampoo so that it doesn’t strip your hair of natural oils. Rinse the shampoo off with the coldest water you can manage as this helps seal the hair shaft. Apply a rich, ultra-hydrating conditioner, ideally one that is paraben and silicone free, like the Eh-Maaya Liquid Gold Serum Conditioner and follow it up with a leave-in once you’re out of the shower, for that extra protection against frizz

Bonus: Use a nourishing pre-wash mask like the Eh-Maaya Hair Food to nourish the scalp, stimulate the hair follicle and promote healthy hair. 

The best part about a routine? From regular use over four weeks, your hair will naturally  be shinier, bouncier, and all round healthy from the blend of consistent nourishment and hydration. 

Leave it to  mother nature

Post wash, there are extra steps you can take to protect the moisture and goodness you’ve worked into the scalp and hair. Gently blot or twist the water out of your hair with a muslin towel or a cotton tee-shirt. Other frizzy hair home remedies include simple things like combing your hair using a wooden comb, or just your fingers. Plastic disturbs the hair shaft more, inviting frizz. Scrunch, coil, crimp with your hands instead of using tools. Once you're done with detangling, moisturising and defining your texture, let your hair be.
