How To Prevent Frizzy Hair After a Shower

Most women hate having frizzy hair.  They never show women modelling frizzy hair on shampoo or hair care ads, and there's a good reason for that.

Frizzy hair has just been an absolute no go through the ages of fashion and style. You'll struggle to recall a time when frizzy hair, and we're not talking about permed or curly hair, was desirable and on trend. That's why so many women are constantly looking for anti-frizz solutions for their strands. 

Humidity, lack of moisture, friction, and styling and chemical damage can unsettle your strands and cause hair to frizz. How you treat your hair before, during, and after the shower can help treat frizz, even in the most humid and unforgiving climates.

So, in no particular order, here are five simple tips to help prevent frizzy hair...

1 Use your fingers to comb your hair

Brushes and combs can actually damage your hair, particularly if you have naturally thin hair, or are prone to shedding. Damaging the hair can lead to even more frizz, so think again before using combs and brushes.

Reduce frizzing by using your fingers to untangle your hair when it is dry.  Use your fingers to gently feel your way through the hair, and try to avoid vigorous pulling.  Once your hair is dry, a good boar bristle brush is a good tool to use for anti-frizzing.

2 Air-dry you hair

Blow-drying can cause havoc on your hair, especially if you are already prone to frizzing. So, consider air-drying your hair instead. Air drying can help prevent frizz. Friction and heat are major causes of frizz, so avoiding blow-drying and towel-drying can help to prevent your hair from getting frizzy.

To help the hair strands dry flat, try tying your hair in a loose bun or braid as it dries. This will keep the strands lying flat and prevent curling and frizz while it dries.

3 Do not dry your hair with a towel

When drying your hair, try using a t-shirt or soft textured cloth instead of a towel. Regular towels generally tend to create more friction, which can cause your hair to frizz, which isn't what you want.

T-shirts and soft cloths offer a more gentle way to dry your hair, and it will help your hair lie flat as it dries. This simple alteration in the way you dry your dry can make a huge difference in the way your hair looks.

4 Wash your hair less frequently

Frequent washing can strip natural oils away from your hair and this may cause your hair to frizz. Over washing hair is a common mistake made by many women, but in reality, it isn't necessary to wash your hair more than 3-4 times a week.

However, women with oily hair, or those who sweat daily due to activities like exercise and sport, may need to wash their hair more frequently. Shampoo your hair every other day, and wash your hair without shampoo for the other days. Just be sure to use a good dry shampoo spray on those days, to keep you hair clean and smelling fresh.

5 Avoid chemical treatments.

Treatments such as dying, colouring, perms, and relaxers can dramatically change the texture of your hair, causing it to frizz in ways it hadn't previously. Reduce the number of times you get chemical treatments in a year to help combat frizz, or even better, don't use them at all.

Always opt for naturally formulated hair care or styling products, because they are likely to cause less damage to your hair. Organic hair care solutions are widely available both on and offline.
