Reasons why you have frizzy curls and how to tame them!
So, ladies, I see you have come across the frizzy beast of the hair kingdom. Don’t be afraid, we at Majesticurl will give you the skills to fight this off.
Your curls may be a bit of a rascal, rebellious, and rowdy. However, their tenacity can often bring them into trouble. Curls left alone (and dehydrated) may rapidly devolve into unruly frizz if you're not cautious. They are all over the place without a solid definition. And the more you attempt to tame them, the more vehemently they retaliate. It appears like you are dealing with a full-fledged frizz tantrum. Take a chill pill, sweetie. We will take care of the rest.
We like that huge and lovely look, so frizzy hair isn't necessarily a terrible thing.
However, it might be the first sign that your hair has been damaged by excessive heat or chemical treatment. When harsh chemicals or scorching heat come into touch with your cuticles, these tiny scales on the hair cortex work as a moisture-locking screen, strengthening the strand and keeping it silky smooth.
However, the cuticles can only withstand so much stress before weakening and
breaking, allowing moisture to leave and leaving the hair dry and porous. Step
outdoors, and those annoying water droplets in the air will soak into your hair, then BOOM. Frizz. Frizz. Frizz!
The Sneaky Culprits
Using straighteners, hairdryers, and curling irons excessively will leave your hair
frayed, fried, and frizzy. When hair is subjected to extreme heat, chemical links are destroyed, the hair fiber is damaged, and moisture is drained from the core. Frizz is more likely to occur when your hair grows drier.
Chemicals and colouring
To change the appearance of your hair, the chemicals used in colouring, chemical straightening, and perming alter the structure of your hair. They cause the cuticles to expand and splinter apart by weakening the hair shaft and breaking down the
natural pigment. Only a few steps separate you from split ends and frizzy flyaways. Look at me here with fried hair.
The sun's heat and damaging UV rays rob your hair of essential moisture. This
causes the natural pigment needed to filter out light and prevent it from accessing the hair shaft to deteriorate, leaving it prone to harm. Then there's humidity, which is frizzy hair's biggest enemy. The minuscule water droplets in humid air are easily absorbed by the dry, damaged hair's split cuticles. Remember, frizz is caused by a lack of moisture in your hair combined with a high level of humidity in the environment.
The heroes that will fight off the frizz
Keeping your curls moisturized and nourished is the first step toward smooth and lustrous strands; after that, it's all about giving them the definition they deserve. Our Curl Heroes, fortunately for you, do just that
For flawlessly defined curls, as part of your wash day regimen, use a curl gel in the shower. This means applying it just after you've washed off your conditioner and your hair is still soaking wet. If your hair is really curly, do it in parts to ensure that it covers all of your hair. Follow up with your favourite oil if your hair needs more hydration. You may also use a small amount on dry hair to smooth down frizz and flyaways.
Deep Conditioning Curl Mask
Let's get down to business, baby girl. A good deep conditioner can penetrate the hair shaft with fancy fiberhance to strengthen, mend, and restore your curls. It's a curl match made in heaven. After cleaning, apply to soaking wet hair. Gently detangle or comb through with your lovely fingers. To carefully pull out the tangles, start at the bottom and work your way up. If you run into a snag, add a dollop extra to release the knots. Before rinsing, wait at least 15 minutes. Wrap in plastic and cover with a heated cloth for more affection and a deeper massage. Leave some of the mask in your curls as a leave-in if they're dry and damaged. When rinsing, keep diluting with water rather than rinsing altogether. For dry and damaged curls, you may even use it instead of a regular conditioner after each wash.
As a general hint for curl care, avoid rinsing your hair in extremely hot water, as this will take away the natural oils, raise the cuticles, and dry out your hair. It's best to use lukewarm water; your curls will thank you!
Rubbing your hair with a rough towel will weaken the cuticles and break the hair fiber, so instead of a towel, use an old cotton T-shirt to gently blot your hair dry once you're out of the shower.
The warrior ingredients for frizzy hair
Aloe Vero Leaf Gel
Cooling, calming, therapeutic, and energizing... Is there anything this plant can't do? Aloe vera is a dry scalp's greatest friend, with fatty acids that alleviate dandruff irritation and deep-conditioning properties. It eliminates excess sebum and buildup from other products to wash the hair and scalp in a much gentler way than your normal hair product. Some even claim that it promotes hair growth, owing to the high concentration of vitamins A, C, and E, which aid in cell regeneration. There's aloe, and there's dream hair.
Now that sounds fancy, yeah? This powerful component penetrates deep into the hair cortex at a molecular level, forming new hydrogen and ionic connections to strengthen and rebuild the internal keratin structure. It works from the inside out to
repair damaged hair and restore the force of the curl by increasing the inner
strength of the hair fiber. Chemicals, heat, and other harsh treatments have no
chance. Hydroxypropyl Gluconamide is another name for it. Do you sense it, babe? That's how chemistry works.
This warrior ingredient is made for a good reason. This nutrient-rich oil has been used by women for ages for its deep conditioning capabilities. It is extracted from the seeds of the fruit that blooms on the beautiful Madagascan baobab tree. This miracle oil absorbs swiftly into the hair to nourish, moisturize, and soften your curls. It's packed with fatty acids and critical vitamins, including all three omegas. The Tree of Life isn't called that for nothing.
Butters can be curl's best friend because they are moisturizing and full of fatty acids. However, not all butters are the same. Cupuaçu is an Amazonian superfruit whose butter is one of nature's most potent moisturizers. This butter will prevent breakages by having healing hydrophilic (water-loving) characteristics that trap moisture and a full alphabet of vitamins and antioxidants to nourish your hair with nature's goodness. In addition, it acts as a shield against the damaging UV of the sun. Well hello there, sunshine.
