The hair sticks out in all directions, is it frizzy or static? Then there is an acute frizz alarm. Here are the best tips for declaring war on frizz!
Especially in the winter months, frizz hair is in the high season. Instead of being sleek and shiny, the hair now looks rough and dry. The tips become brittle and straight hair begins to fly. But where does this annoying hair problem come from?
Our hair is surrounded by a cuticle. While the cuticle of healthy and supple hair consists of closely coupled scales, this cuticle is roughened in brittle and dull hair.
Therefore, the individual hair fibers get moisture from the outside - for example in rainy weather and high humidity. The moisture from the outside penetrates under the scales and makes the hair stick out frizzy from the head. Curly or wavy hair, which is naturally more prone to dryness than straight hair, is particularly prone to frizz.
The reasons for the dryness of the hair can be very different. Frequent coloring or too much sun on vacation can roughen the hair structure and dry out the hair. Incorrect styling by blow-drying or straightening can also damage the hair in the long term. In addition, in winter there is damp and cold outside and dry heating air inside - a combination that quickly makes us look as if we have just reached into a socket.
But don't worry, you don't have to resort to radical scissors - we'll show you how you can save frizzy hair quickly.
Not only our skin reports in the form of scaly shins and rough elbows when their thirst for water is not quenched. Our hair also wants to be supplied with enough moisture from the inside. It should be at least two liters of water or tea per day to prevent straw hair and frizz.
Washing your hair too often creates extra frizz and rinses out important natural oils that protect the hair from drying out. Therefore, at Frizz: washing your hair two to three times a week is sufficient!
You should also choose a moisturizing shampoo or a special anti-frizz shampoo that nourishes and protects the hair - for example with vitamin E-rich argan or almond oil.
A nourishing rinse after washing is an absolute must with Frizz. A leave-in conditioner can also be used. Both help to make the hair smoother and tame so that no more hairs stick out from the head.
Dry frizzy hair can only be brought back under control with a lot of care. You should therefore treat your hair to intensive care with a rich hair treatment once a week. Special anti-frizz cures can already achieve small miracles: They repair dry hair and protect it with valuable proteins and oils. It intensively cares for brittle hair, prevents hair breakage, and ensures that it is noticeably soft.
When drying your hair, the structure of the hair is important. Of course, it is generally best to let your hair air dry and not to stress it by blow-drying it too hot. This is especially true with curly frizzy hair, which tends to be more fluffy.
So instead of blow-drying the hair after washing, you should work a styling foam with nourishing ingredients into the wet hair for curls. This defines the individual curls and makes them beautifully supple.
Straight frizzy hair, on the other hand, tends to become statically charged and begins to “fly”. Therefore, the hairdryer can also be used here. The heat ensures that the cuticle of the hair is closed and the hair absorbs less humidity.
Important: It is essential to apply a good heat protection spray before blow-drying. It seals the hair and protects it from the heat of the blow dryer.
By brushing your hair regularly, you will distribute natural oils that ensure that the hair is nourished and hydrated. Choose a wide-toothed brush that helps to gently and gently detangle the hair. You can also swap your terry towel for one made of microfiber in the bathroom. This means that the hair is less roughened when it is dried.
Tangle Teezer brushes are particularly popular for gently detangling hair. With their fine bristles, they avoid uncomfortable pulling and tearing. In addition, thanks to their compact size, they are perfect for the handbag.
So that you don't start the day with a shaggy mane in the morning, you can invest in a pillowcase made of silk. Silk has an antistatic effect and helps prevent frizz and even split ends.
In everyday life, a serum or an anti-frizz cream can quickly provide relief in between. If you don't have a special beauty product ready, you can simply tame protruding hairs with a little body lotion or hand cream.
