Women encounter many different hair difficulties. By far the most troublesome and common problem is that of frizzy hair. Frizzy hair can make any woman feel bad about how her hair looks and feels. That’s why many women are passionate about fighting frizzy hair and making sure their hair looks good at all times.
Frizz is most common in warm, humid weather. Years ago, this meant that women had to suffer with frizzy hair during the hot summer months. However, with the recent improvements in hair care products, women no longer have to deal with this. They can have luscious, beautiful hair year round. In this article, you’ll learn about the many products you have at your disposal to maintain frizz-free hair. You’ll also learn how humidity causes frizz.
So Where Does the Frizz Come From?
If you’ve had some science, you might already know the answer to this question. If not, that’s OK, as we’ll explain it here. Basically, the moisture from the humidity comes into contact with your hair’s hydrogen bonds. The moisture then changes the bonds, which are responsible for holding hair straight or curly, thus making the hair frizzy.
When these bonds are changed, your hair’s natural tendencies are revealed. That means that if your hair is normally quite curly, but you have been wearing it straight, in humid weather, you’ll have very curly hair.
What Do I Do?
When the hair’s natural tendencies are revealed on a hot, humid day, you have two choices. The first is to blatantly disregard your tendencies and continue to do things in a way that could cause your hair to rebel. The second is to take advantage of your natural hair tendencies and use products which will help fight frizz and leave your hair looking as good as you want it to.
Frizz Fighting Products
There are literally several hundred different types of hair products on the market that help to maintain hair and make it look better. Just like you can find products to help make your hair fuller, you can also find products which help to fight humidity induced frizz. Consider purchasing some of the following products to get rid of the frizz.
Gel and/or creme is a very convenient and easy way of getting rid of frizz. There are many gel-based anti-frizz products on the market. The best of these tend to be the salon brands, as they use higher quality ingredients and are more effective than are the store brands. When picking a gel, you want to make sure it is agreeable with your hair. In other words, you want to pick something that fits your hair and its natural tendencies. So if you have curly hair, pick frizz gel designed for curly hair.
