Are you tired of trying to tame your frizzy hair? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Plenty of women are forced to tackle frizzy hair on a regular basis and it is the hardest (& apparently never-ending) fight. 

WHAT CAUSES FRIZZY HAIR?

Frizz is caused by a lack of moisture in the hair. Ironically, humid, wet weather tends to make frizzy hair worse.

That’s because dry hair tries to absorb moisture out of the air, causing each hair’s cuticle, or outer layer, to swell up, instead of laying flat. The cuticle comprises overlapping scales, which separate and rise in moist air. This makes hair look frizzy.

There are several factors that could make your hair more vulnerable to frizz.

We went ahead and listed some, below.

  • You style your hair with hot styling tools daily.
  • You’re washing hair every day.
  • The water temperature in your shower is too high?
  • Your hair ends are damaged.
  • You dry your hair with a rough hair towel.

If you want to make your locks look more smoother, here are some home remedies that will restore moisture to reduce frizz. Increased moisture may also lead to improved hair hygiene.
