Tips to reduce frizz

Causes of fluff:

When your hair is dry, the cuticle of your hair is rough and when the weather is humid, this is the perfect recipe for frizz. The outer layer of the hair absorbs moisture from the air, causing it to swell and frizz.
The solution? Moisture is the only way, according to Jason Collier, to control frizzy locks and that starts in the shower. According to him, coconut oil is the best way to provide your hair with a nice dose of hydration. You can buy coconut oil in the supermarket for a few euros, apply 2 spoons of coconut oil to towel-dried hair, leave on for a few minutes and then rinse. You can of course also use products that contain coconut oil.

Wash your hair in super hot water

This can strip the hair of the natural oils that keep it moisturized and smooth. So if you're prone to frizz, you might want to try reducing the heat.
Lack of proper hydration
If your hair has a tendency to frizz, make sure you use moisturizing conditioner and leave-in conditioner.

Hair chemicals
Hair dye, color, bleaches will disrupt the cuticle of the hair and cause it to dry out, become rough and frizzy.

Sleeping on a rough pillowcase
If possible, sleep on silk or satin sheets and pillows to prevent hair from becoming rough.
Sticking your fingers in your hair too much
A common cause of frizz is when you constantly pull or pluck your hair.
Your protein-moisture balance is not good
Get started on improving your protein-moisture balance.

How can you reduce frizz even more?

If you notice that you get frizz in high humidity, it is probably because your hair has dried out. The lack of moisture in the hair means that it absorbs any moisture in the air, causing frizz. You need to re-hydrate the hair, so make sure you use a leave-in conditioner every day (note; a leave-in can weigh down fine hair).

You can pre-treat your hair with an oil before washing it. Oil provides extra moisture and ensures that your hair cuticles close.

Wash your hair less often
Washing too often strips the hair of those oils, making it drier and causing frizz.

Deep conditioner, mask, once a week
A deep conditioner seals the hair cuticles and prevents moisture from the air from entering the hair. More moisture in the product = less frizz.

Styling products
Apply to soaking wet hair to add a protective layer against frizz.

You can do additional treatments with an Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse, DIY Gelatin Protein Treatment and Olaplex No.3

Blow-dry your hair properly
Diffuse your hair by pressing the diffuser to your scalp per section, hold for 30 seconds - 1 minute, then turn off the dryer and move on to the next section and start again. This prevents hair from blowing around too much and encourages more curls and less frizz.

Protect your hair while sleeping
Sleeping with a satin pillowcase not only prevents hair breakage during the night, but the fabric does not absorb as much moisture from the hair as regular cotton pillowcases, which means you will create less frizz.
