Frizz is synonymous with curly hair. It’s a common occurrence because the hair becomes too dry and separated and seeks out moisture, but it can be caused by a variety of factors. A humid environment, heat damage and improper brushing can all cause frizz.
Since curly hair requires extra moisture, shampoos and conditioners that hydrate are a must. Nourishing ingredients need to be present in order to repair the intercellular elements. However, you don’t want to add extra weight to curls, so you have to make sure the formula you choose isn’t too heavy. The most important thing with curly hair is to create a barrier to lock out moisture and keep your curls in place so they maintain their shape.
Smoothing ingredients like glycerin, essential fatty acids, silicone, aloe vera, vitamin E, resins and gums tame frizz, while calcium and magnesium fuse the protein chain together to lift and define curls.
To prevent frizz, don’t use products with alcohol, which can dry out curls and cause them to seek out hydration. Also avoid volumizing shampoos and conditioners, which can loosen and separate the curl and encourage frizz.
