9 Tips for Reducing Frizz

9 Tips for Reducing Frizz

A lot of us suffer from frizzy hair. Humidity? Frizz. Dry hair? Frizz. Seemingly normal day? Frizz. Thankfully, there are many methods to help reduce this! At Grassroots Movement Australia, we're all about providing you with the best eco-friendly and sustainable way to keep your hair looking, and feeling healthy. 

Here are some tips that help reduce frizz; 

1. Trim Your Hair Regularly

Getting a regular trim keeps your hair healthier by getting rid of the split ends. Cutting away the dead ends means that there's more moisture for the rest of your hair.

However, this doesn't mean that cutting your hair short from long will get rid of frizz - especially if you have wavy or curly hair. The weight from long hair will often even out curls. So cutting them short will only make them bounce up, resulting in curlier hair. This however isn't a bad thing, of course. It depends on what style you're going for. But a style that never goes out of fashion is healthy hair. 


2. Use Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner

If you have frizzing or curly hair, try not to wash your hair everyday. Washing your hair strips the natural oils. Curly hair is often more dry than straight hair.  Depending on the natural build up of oils, we recommend washing your hair less frequently, and use a hydrating shampoo & conditioner

Using a moisture based shampoo will help to keep your hair hydrated and cleaner for longer. 


3. Detangle Your Hair With a Wide-toothed Comb

These brushes with wide teeth are perfect for wet hair. It allows more hair to pass through, and it combs out larger bundles of strands. This helps to prevent breakage. I find that this is especially good for easily tangled hair.


4. Use a Hair Mask

Bring moisture back to your hair after washing it with a hair mask. Hair masks are for all hair types, however the Grassroots' Hair Masks are perfect for coloured hair, damaged, or dry hair. If you're just looking to strengthen and/or hydrate your hair, these masks will do the job. 


5. Cold Rinse Your Hair

Once you've washed your hair and applied a hair mask, rinse your hair with cold water. Try to avoid hot showers, and opt for warmer water. This prevents the cuticles from opening up, leading to frizzing hair. Running cold water over it will lock the cuticles and keeps your hair level. 

Can't stand the idea of having a cold shower? Fair enough! I'd recommend starting with cooler water.


6. Let Your Hair Air-dry

Replace the heat from your hair dryer and use a microfibre towel. Aggressively drying your hair with a regular towel causes friction and disrupts the cuticles, contributing to frizzing hair. 

Give yourself a little extra time to let your hair dry naturally. You might want to consider switching to night showers if you're used to having morning washes.


7. Tie Your Hair in a Bun

If you wash your hair at night, consider tying your hair up in a bun once it's dry. This stops your hair from moving around while you toss and turn, preventing those morning tangles. 


8. Use a Hair Detangler

9. Apply Argan Oil

  • Use the right products that hydrates and cleanses. Look for anti-frizz products that are moisture based. Think moisturizing shampoo, hair masks, argan oil, and hair detangler. 
  • Avoid washing your hair everyday. This is because using shampoo too regularly will strip the natural oils and moisture from your hair. 
  • Avoid heat and friction that disrupts hair cuticles and produces frizz. Try air-drying your hair with a microfibre towel instead of blow-drying, and opt for warm, not hot showers.
  • Regularly trim those dead ends. 
  • Detangle your hair in the shower, smoothing it out with a wide tooth comb. And keep it detangled by tying your hair up from tossing and turning with you throughout the night.
