HOW TO: Manage Frizzy Hair

With the warm weather fast approaching, frizzy hair is the last thing you should have to deal with. As we spend more time outdoors, the heat and humidity of summer can make it more difficult to manage frizzy locks. HASK has spoken with expert hairstylists to find out why hair becomes frizzy, and what are some of the best things you can do to manage frizz.


What Causes Frizz?

There are a few main culprits behind frizz. First up: the weather! For many of us, as hotter and more humid weather kicks in around summertime, hair takes on a frizzier texture. Another top culprit behind frizzed-out locks is heat styling. Overusing heat tools, particularly without using adequate heat protection and repairing hair care products, can lead to dried-out and damaged hair that is more prone to frizz. Lastly, sometimes frizz just occurs as the result of our natural hair texture! Essentially, this ‘natural’ frizz occurs when hair simply doesn’t align with the surrounding hairs, generally creating a fuzzy and irregular texture.


Myths About Managing Frizz

In today’s era of fast solutions, these myths often come in the form of ‘quick fixes’ which can actually leave your hair unhealthy and the worse for wear. Luckily, HASK is here to debunk the most common frizzy hair myths!

The first myth is using heat on hair in order to tame frizz. In reality, using heat tools as a quick solution to regularly reduce frizz actually does more harm to your hair in the long term. Secondly, according to Hollywood hairstylist Linda Flowers, “a big misconception about managing frizzy hair is that you should use heavy products that weigh the hair down.” Instead of managing frizz, using products that are too heavy for your hair can lead to product build-up, and simply weigh hair down at the roots while leaving ends frizzy.


How to Effectively Manage Frizz

If your hair is frizzy because of its natural texture, instead of reaching for the heat tools and heavy products, an effective strategy for managing frizz is to start using high-quality products with ingredients that have been purposefully selected for your hair type. Linda Flowers explains: “What you really want is a product that strengthens and moisturises, while also maintaining the integrity of the hair.”


For frizzy hair, she recommends the HASK Shea Butter & Hibiscus Oil Collection. “This HASK Shea Butter & Hibiscus Oil Collection is unique in that it provides everything needed to maintain healthy, shiny hair. The special bonding elements combine with its moisturising properties to provide everything the hair needs.” Embracing your natural hair texture and providing it with the nourishment it needs, rather than using heat, will help reduce frizz and enhance the look and feel of your hair.


A second way to manage frizzy hair, especially if your hair is frizzy from damage, is to use products that are designed to both repair and smooth hair. The HASK Keratin Protein Collection is designed to smooth and revitalise hair by reducing frizz, blocking out humidity, and providing strands with a lustrous shine. Linda Flowers says: “I feel even the most damaged, bleached hair can be saved with the introduction of protein, and for that the HASK Keratin Protein Collection is great!”
