How to reduce frizz?

Hello Curlistas / Curlistos!

Here are some tips that will help you reduce frizz as much as possible and understand why you have it.

1/ Why do I have frizz?

reduce frizz

Hair that curls for no reason is a sign of dehydration of the hair fiber. All it takes is for the air to be a little humid for the water in the atmosphere to cling to the dry cuticle, lifting it up and giving it those frizzies.

It all comes from the scales of your hair, which you can't see with the naked eye: Smooth, tightly closed scales ensure well-defined, shiny curls. (little porous hair). Conversely, open scales cause coarse hair with frizz. (porous hair).

Although frizz is part of the nature of our dry hair, it is possible to reduce it but not to eliminate it.

2/ How to reduce frizz?

It starts at bedtime: use a satin pillowcase to prevent frizz from forming overnight. Indeed your hair will not cling but will slide on it.

or an adjustable and reversible elastic satin bonnet :
Dry your hair with a microfiber or bamboo towel to prevent frizz from forming after your routine.

3/ What should you avoid doing?

Although we can't be perfect, here's what to avoid so your hair doesn't get too frizzy:

- Discolorations which make our hair more fragile and therefore porous: open scales which cause the hair to swell on contact with air, humidity, etc.

- The heat of the hair dryer : you have seen it yourself, when you dry your curls with a hair dryer they tend to create frizz. The use of a low temperature diffuser is preferable.

- Dry brushing them for no reason: Curly, curly, frizzy hair does not style like smooth hair. If you want to detangle them, do it in the shower after applying a mask or conditioner.

4/ What treatments can I use on a daily basis?

Then the watchword is HY-DRA-TA-TION!!! It is necessary to moisturize your hair as much as possible in order to reduce the appearance of frizz. A moisturizer is not pure water but a treatment that contains water + a fatty substance = moisturizer that smoothes the hair fiber and reduces frizz. A dry hair is a hair that lacks sebum and lipids and not water.
Leave-in treatments are essential to limit frizz.
They will help hydrate your hair and leave a thin film that will protect it from humidity and external pollution while defining it.
Use a Moisturizing Hair Milk or a moisturizing cream daily:

For some hair types hydration alone is not enough or their damaged condition does not maintain hydration. The moisturizer evaporates quickly and the hair stays dry. In this case, it is necessary to seal the hydration, that is to say to provide a nourishing treatment that will trap the hydration so that it is maintained.
Apply a small amount of product so as not to saturate the hair and make it sticky (oily):
