There might be a lot of reasons for frizzy hair. And before jumping into the solutions of frizzy hair, let’s get some idea about the reasons behind the bad frizzy nature of our hair.
Reasons for Frizzy Hair
Lack of proper hair care
Well, this is a major reason for which we bump into frizzy hair problem. Men often tend to regularly brush their hair and also, they use low-quality products. They think they do not need so much care for their hair. However, this becomes detrimental to their hair health! Lack of hydration is also caused due to lack of proper care and thus frizzy hair is the result.
Humidity is the worst enemy of smooth shiny hair. The more humid the climate, the frizzy the hair.
Men often tend to use chemical products like hair gel on their hair for styling. Most often, those are of low quality. And when the chemicals of those low-quality products come in contact with the hair, the cuticles of the hair open and absorb those bad chemicals. As a result, hair becomes frizzy and unruly.
Now, let’s jump into the solutions of frizzy hair.
Solutions of Frizzy Hair
1. Protect your hair from dryer and iron
Men also use hair dryers and irons to style their hair. However, they often forget to take the proper preparations before styling the hair. Thermal protectors are available as liquids and sprays and even gels! These help the hair to stay frizz free, protect the hair from heat and help the brush to glide in the hair while combing. Result? Reduced frizz!
2. Hydrate the hair on a weekly basis
Do you want a completely frizz-free hair? Restore all the lost nutrients into hair by hydrating it. There is a procedure called capillary calendar. You can follow that and restore all the oils and nutrients in your hair. Hydrated hair is completely frizz free. When the hair lacks moisture, frizzes are seen. So, hydrate your hair weekly and enjoy great smooth, shiny and frizz free hair!
3. Add vegetable oil to your hair care routine
Vegetable oils like, castor oil, almond oil, avocado oil and coconut oil help to nourish and hydrate the hair strands. Just add a few drops of these oil to your weekly hydration routine and you will be amazed by the result!
4. Use sulfate free shampoo
Sulfate is a very harsh chemical for hair that causes frizz. So, opt for a sulfate free shampoo every time you take a shower. And use a good quality conditioner after that. You will notice that your hair has become frizz free and smooth.
5. Cold water rinsing method
This is a very major thumb rule of ending the shower. After you have finished taking a bath, just rinse your hair with cold water. Why? To lock the moisture. At the end when you apply cold water to your hair, the moisture is sealed in your hair. Avoid hot water because, hot water usually rips off the moisture in the hair, which in turn causes frizz. So, now you know what to do at the end of every shower to get a frizz-free hair.
6. Apple cider vinegar
ACV seals the cuticles of the hair strands and prevents the hair from curling. You can mix one tablespoon of ACV in a cup of water and give a final rinse to your hair with that. You will see noticeable changes in your hair right after the hair dries.
7. Use the dryer properly
Use a warm temperature in your hair dryer. Please do not use hot temperature while drying. Try to dry your hair making a circular motion with the hairdryer and remember to keep the dryer at a distance while you move the dryer over your hair. This is a way to get rid of frizzy hair.
So, these are some techniques for men to get rid of frizzy hair. Apply these techniques and you will thank me later. Good luck!
