Fight the Frizz with Fanola

Hands up if you have ever been personally victimised by frizz? Well, you’re not alone. Frizz is a common hair issue for many people and especially affects dry hair types such as curly or wavy hair. But what causes frizz? When your hair is dry, porous or colour treated, it lacks moisture. So when your hair comes into contact with any moisture in the air, it automatically soaks it up, causing frizz. Now, this isn’t good news if you want to embrace the sleek low ponytail trend. That is popular with influencers. However, you are in luck because we are here to make your life easier, after all. So now it is time to soak up this guide to help you combat frizz. Just like your hair would soak up any moisture in the air.

Moisture, Moisture, Moisture!

Now we know we may have made out moisture to be the enemy in our earlier paragraph, as it is what causes your hair to frizz. But this is because your hair is lacking moisture. Therefore, the best way for you to avoid frizzy hair is by making sure that your hair is moisturised. It is especially important if your hair is damaged. You can add moisture back into your hair by using the right hair care products. A key ingredient to look out for in products is Wheat Proteins. It is because the main function of this ingredient is to attract and retain moisture in the hair. The Nourishing/Nutricare range contains wheat proteins which means it is perfect for any locks that need a moisture boost.

Always Use a Heat Protectant

Heat damage can dry out your strands and leave you with annoying frizz and flyaways. It is why we recommend using a form of heat protection whenever you are using a heated styling tool. The Kerarerm range is perfect for eliminating frizz while protecting your hair when exposed to heat. It includes an Anti-Frizz Disciplining Shampoo, an Anti-Frizz Disciplining Mask and a Progressive Smoothing Thermal Spray. When used all together, the hair is frizz-free as well as easier to handle and style. The Smoothing Thermal Spray has thermo-active technology, which when activated by heat, for example, a hairdryer, protects the hair from heat damage. It also shortens the time it takes to dry and straighten the hair.

Leave Your Hair to Dry Naturally If Possible

We know that this won’t be possible for everyone. But this tip is particularly useful for those who have curly or wavy hair, as using a hairdryer will cause more frizz. We would also suggest ditching your cotton towel for drying your hair and instead use an old t-shirt or a microfiber hair towel. These two alternatives are much gentler when drying your hair and won’t cause as much friction as a cotton towel would.

Add a Toothbrush to your Styling Tools

You are going to have to trust us on this one. As crazy as it seems, a toothbrush and hairspray is the perfect combination for getting rid of any unwanted frizz or flyaways. When trying to achieve a sleek hairstyle. We find that this combination works well for any stray baby hairs around your hairline too. All you need to do is lightly spray a toothbrush with your chosen hairspray. This method also means you aren’t wasting any more product than you need to.

Invest In a Silk Pillowcase

We’ve said it once before, and we will say it once again. You need to swap out your cotton pillowcases for silk ones instead. Unlike cotton pillowcases, silk pillowcases don’t cause any friction. Therefore, you are less likely to wake up to frizzy hair. You may even want to purchase a silk hair wrap for added protection against frizz.

Hair Serum Is a Must-Have

Hair serum is a great product to have on hand to help to achieve frizz-free styles. Hairstylist love to use serums on wet hair before blowdrying to ensure that the hair is smooth and shiny. The Nourishing Restructuring Fluid Crystals are ideal for anyone with frizzy, curly or permed hair. This serum is rich in Linseed Oil and Aloe Vera, which both promote healthy hair growth.

Define Curls While Hair Is Still Wet

Our last frizz-fighting tip is for all our Fanola curly-haired babes. The best time to beat frizz is while your hair is still wet. So be sure to apply any curl creams, fluids or gels as soon as you step out of the shower. If you find that your hair starts to dry before you get round to applying your styling products, buy a spray bottle and fill it with water. That way, you can easily wet any parts of your hair that have already dried.
