Who isn’t excited as winter begins to fade away and the milder spring weather takes over? It’s nice to get outside again after feeling cooped up during the cold winter months. The air isn’t as dry, and that helps your hair retain some of its natural moisture. However, higher humidity can also lead to frizzier hair. Frizzy hair can be a hassle, and just downright inconvenient. It’s good to be prepared for it though since once the temperatures soar in the summer months, the struggle can intensify.
The good news is that there are a few things you can do to tame the frizz and still enjoy your curly locks. In this article, we’ll be taking a look at some useful and practical tips.
Top 6 Reasons Your Hair is Frizzy
- Hair that is naturally curly or naturally dry is prone to frizz.
- Hair becomes dry and frizzy if you are dehydrated, and if you are not eating a well-balanced diet.
- Using heat to dry and style your hair can damage your hair and cause frizz.
- Haircare products that contain alcohol and SLS can damage and dry the hair out.
- Over-processing your hair by dying or bleaching damages and dries the cuticle.
- Some medications can cause changes in your body that affect the texture of your hair.
You may be tempted to run out to the local drug store to stock up on anti-frizz products. Unfortunately, most of the products you’ll see that help fight the dreaded frizz are laden with silicones and additives that damage your hair and are harmful to your health. Fortunately, there are healthier options like using blended natural oils and plant extracts.
What are the Best Oils to Help Tame the Frizz?
Several natural oils help tame frizzy hair. You’ll find these oils in the handmade oils at Lilyam. While these oils are useful for taming wild locks, they also have lots of other benefits for your hair. Here are the top natural oils to use on unruly hair.
Sweet Almond Oil – Almond oil is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and proteins. Specifically, it has magnesium, vitamin E, zinc, and potassium. Used often as a carrier oil, it provides hydration and nutrition your hair needs to prevent dryness and stay healthy. Almond oil protects the hair by providing a protective layer that reduces frizz. This layer of protection also protects shafts from environmental damage.
Castor Oil – A great way to tame the hair naturally is using castor oil. Like almond oil, it’s loaded with nutrients, but it also has natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Castor oil contains ricinoleic acid that is beneficial for helping to balance the scalp pH. Antioxidants found in castor oil help support keratin in the hair so that it becomes stronger, smoother, softer, and less frizzy.
Grapeseed Oil – Grapeseed oil is lightweight. It is lighter than coconut oil or olive oil which makes it a good choice for conditioning drier hair. It doesn’t leave it feeling greasy. Grapeseed oil helps lock in moisture and prevent split ends, brittle hair, and frizz.
