Tips on how to fight frizz for each hair type
For years our products have been known to lock in moisture and reduce friction, thus leading to frizz-free hair. But what is Frizz and how do we treat it?
What is Frizz?
Your hair is made up of three layers, and when the outer layer (the cuticle) becomes raised due to moisture passing through it, hair looks dry and brittle, or in other words...frizzy. Here are our top tips for each hair type to keep your hair frizz-free.
Type 1 Hair - Switch to Silk Pillowcases
This is a quick fix with big results. Cotton pillowcases are known to cause a lot of friction, which can leave you with a frizzy tangled mess in the morning. Silk Pillowcases are smooth and allow your hair to glide across the surface at night, eliminating friction and making your morning hair routine easier. Besides saving your hair from bedhead, silk pillowcases are also dermatologist approved to help fight sleep lines!
Type 2 Hair - Diffuse your hair or use a microfiber towel
Using a cotton towel or blow-drying on the highest setting will cause your hair to dry out, thus leading to frizz. If you like blow-drying your hair, try using a diffuser! This hair saving invention spreads out the heat to prevent hair damage.
If you prefer to let your hair dry more naturally, try switching to a microfiber towel for a frizz free routine! Microfiber is 100 times finer than human hair, and a square inch on a microfiber towel holds close to 200,000 fibers. This creates a larger surface area in which to absorb moisture, making your drying time faster.
Type 3 - Ease up on the shampoo!
This might sound crazy, but going longer in between washes can be a good thing. When used too often, shampoo can dry out the natural moisture in your hair which is why conditioning afterward is so important. The beautiful thing about curly hair is you can shampoo your hair as little as 2-3 times a week. Once you start limiting your shampoo usage, take note of how your hair reacts and adjust accordingly.
Type 4 - Moisture. Moisture. Moisture.
Type 4 hair is prone to frizz, which is why deep conditioners and oils are your best friend when it comes to de-frizzing your hair. This work starts in the shower, your deep conditioners and oils will help penetrate the shaft and deliver the right amount of proteins and moisture your hair needs for a frizz-free look. Our signature GE Argan Oil is high in Vitamin E and healthy fatty acids, which will create a barrier to lock in moisture and keep frizz at bay.
