What Helps Frizzy Hair?
Hair is made up of three layers but it is the outer layer, or cuticle, that causes frizziness. Imagine that a strand of hair looks like it is covered with shingles. These shingles are layered like on a roof. When the hair is smooth it means that those shingles are lying flat. However, you can disrupt those shingles in different ways, causing them to lift and make the hair appear frizzy.
Frizz is essentially caused by a lack of moisture in the hair. So, to tame frizzy hair, you need to focus on moisture control.

1. Rehydrate your hair by using products such as serum or frizz-control cream. You can also use oil in your hair. Stick to natural oils such as coconut or Argan.

4. Use products that contain ingredients great for managing frizz. For example, conditioners that have protein in their formulations will not only fight frizz but also add shine and strength to your hair.
