What happens when you have frizzy hair?

The most common symptoms associated with frizzy hair is the hair looking dull, rough and brittle. Your hair will also get tangled easily, which will further worsen the breakage. Your hair might also soon experience discoloration. Frizzy hair tips split really fast, which stops the hair growth. Since the hair is devoid of moisture, it is vulnerable to dandruff.

Your hair is frizzy because your scalp produces less sebum. When the scalp produces less oil, the level of natural conditioning that reaches the hair shafts and tips is very minimal.

People with frizzy hair also have weak cuticles. Our hair cuticles help protect the hair by acting as a defensive sheath. These also help the hair strands retain the moisture. Weak cuticles cannot hold the moisture, and so the hair gets drier and frizzier, making it more difficult for you to restore the health of your hair.

What causes frizzy hair?

Let us now look at the causes of frizzy hair so that we can develop a better ritual to take care of the issues and prevent the causes.

Frizzy hair is caused by exposure to environmental stressors. The texture of your hair is affected by changes in weather. The exposure to UV radiation too causes frizzy hair. It can also cause hair discoloration. Exposure to wind, rain, and differing temperatures can wreak havoc on the health of the hair. These factors damage the protective sheath of your hair, and cause the hair tips to split.

Frizzy hair is also caused by fluctuating hormonal levels. Change in hormones associated with puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause leave the hair dry and brittle. Your hormone levels might also alter because of certain medications to specific illnesses.

Using shampoos with a high concentration of sulfates can ruin the moisture level of your hair, making the tresses really dry and weak. The natural oils are all soaked up and washed out, making the hair look lack-luster.

Using heating tools like blow dryers, straighteners, curlers etc. on a regular basis can ruin the texture of your hair. It causes an imbalance in temperature, which in turn, makes the hair extremely dry and rough.

A simple hack you can follow to prevent this is to air dry your hair. Also, do not comb wet hair. When our hair is wet, it tends to be extremely weak, and therefore, when you comb it, it breaks easily. You should brush your hair when it is 90 per cent dry. This will prevent your hair from getting tangled up and breaking.

 The Best Natural Recipes For Homemade Shampoo For Frizzy Hair 

To control the frizz, you need to not only moisture your hair and scalp, but also ensure the moisture is locked into the cuticle. Only then will the solution be a long-term one. For this, you need a conditioner that contains glycerin in addition to coconut oil, shea butter, and other hydrating ingredients. By applying the conditioner from the mid hair shaft to the tops will helps lock the moisture in the tresses, and thus keep your hair hydrated for a longer time.

Prioritizing your conditioner over your shampoo is a smart move when it comes to controlling and treating the frizz, but if you can create homemade shampoos suing natural ingredients from your kitchen, nothing like it.

Here are some of the easiest recipes that you can try.

Using commercial shampoos on your frizzy hair can make your hair dried. Instead try this simple baking soda cleanser that will help your clean your scalp and hair shafts thoroughly, and also revive your curl if you have curly hair. You can also use this as a hair rinse.

Here are some recipes shared by David Wolfe in his website,

“Mix baking soda and water in a 1 to 3 ratio in a small squeeze bottle. The more hair you have, the more you’ll need. For shoulder-length hair, use 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 6 tablespoons of water.

You can use baking soda on dry hair, or you can use it when your hair is wet. Work the mixture in starting at your roots, and move it through to the end of your hair.

Let the mix sit for a few minutes, then wash it off using warm water.

Rinse your hair with a mixture of apple cider vinegar (for International products click here) and water. The ratio should be 1 to 4. Add a few drops of essential oil if you’d like.

To apply the apple cider vinegar (for International products click here) mix, tilt your head backward to avoid getting apple cider vinegar in your eyes.”

The other thing that I absolutely love is weddings! Well, who doesn’t like being in a room full of love stories, eh?!
