How to Tame Frizzy Hair

How to Defrizz Hair

Three Methods:

Frizzy hair can be a frustrating inconvenience, but it’s certainly not a life sentence. There are plenty of short and long term answers. Regardless of if you’ve got curly hair that won't stop frizzing or waves that won't calm down, you’re bound to find a technique that works to fix it.


Using Defrizzing Products

  1. Use anti-static spray.You can buy an anti-static spray at your local pharmacy or hair salon. Don’t overdo it with the spray – a quick once-over of your hair should do the trick. Try to only spray in the troublesome spots. This will help to defrizz your hair immediately.
  2. Use a cream hydrator.Apply a cream based product to your hair while it’s still wet. This one you’ll want to apply from root to tip. Warm the product by rubbing it between your hands before you apply it.
  3. Consider using a hydrating mask once a week.If you’re having serious troubles with frizzy hair every day, you might want to consider using a hydrating mask once a week. You can buy your own hydrating mask at a hair salon or you can have a professional apply it to your hair. Apply the amount that the bottle recommends to towel dried hair and let it soak in for 5-7 minutes.
    • A hydrating mask is a good idea in dry winter months to help combat frizz.

Caring For Your Hair

  1. Try a sulfate-free shampoo.You should look for a shampoo that is labeled as being sulfate-free and that has a large amount of glycerin. The higher up glycerin is in the ingredients list, the more concentrated it is in the shampoo. This combats frizz by hydrating the hair shaft.
  2. Go light on the shampoo.Shampoo strips hair of its natural oils. Only use a dime sized blob for shoulder length hair. Use more or less if your hair is longer or shorter Make sure to wash the soap out thoroughly.
    • If your hair is very dry at the ends, a hot oil conditioner can work wonders. After conditioning you should rinse all your hair under cold water for one minute to relax the follicles. Then wrap it up under a towel.
  3. Replace shampoo with conditioner twice a week.You don’t need to use shampoo every day, and conditioner will help clean your hair without stripping it of its natural oils, which is what shampoo does. If your hair is frizzy every day after using shampoo it’s probably a sign you are using it either too much or too often.
  4. Let your hair air dry.Some recommend letting your hair dry 90% of the way and then blow-drying it. Too much hot air dries out your hair and causes it to become frizzier.
  5. Use a wide-tooth comb instead of a brush.Consider using a wide-tooth comb instead of a brush if your hair is extremely tangled. This will prevent frizz because you won't be pulling at knots in your hair and causing damage. At some point you should take the time to get those knots out with a finer brush, but if you need to head to a party without frizzy hair a wide-tooth comb will do the trick.
    • If your hair still gets frizzy using a wide-tooth comb, then try running your fingers through your hair while in the shower rather than using a comb or brush afterwards. Wrap it in a towel and keep it damp to prevent early frizzing.
  6. Eat healthy and drink water.Frizzy hair is a sign of dehydration and can also mean you're lacking in essential fatty acids found in fish, nuts, and seeds. Try to adopt a diet that could help strengthen your hair.

Trying Other Techniques

  1. Use a fabric softener sheet.If you’re in a rush to defrizz your hair, grab a fabric softener sheet and run it along the frizzy parts of your hair. This will help to remove static and frizz. Keep in mind that it isn’t a permanent solution. It will help to remove flyaway hairs in a pinch though.
  2. Rub a small amount of coconut oil through your hair.You only need a few drops in your hand, even smaller than dime sized. Rub the oil through your hair but not your scalp while your hair is still wet. This is another quick fix that can help your hair look more smooth and sleek.
  3. Brush dry oil through your hair.Apply a moisture-locking dry oil using a bristle brush. You should be able to find a bristle brush and dry oil at your local pharmacy. Oil acts as a barrier to liquids, which can lead to frizz.
    • Brush the oil into your hair from the ends to midway through the hair shaft while your hair is still wet. Once your hair is dry, finish by brushing the oil into the rest of your hair.
  4. Finished.

    It's hard to say, but as long as you can fully lather up all of your hair, you're using enough. If you use too much, just make sure you rinse it all out, it's not going to harm you.
