10 Ways to Avoid Frizz
Frizzy hair don't care - this now popular saying has even become a hashtag on Instagram, with many women choosing to embrace their natural hair in all its glory. Frizz is caused by a lack of moisture in your hair, leading to damage to the outside layer, or cuticle. If you're simply not digging the frizz or want to calm things down a little, what's there to do? Thankfully, there is a solution - these fantastic frizz-fighting remedies won't just reverse frizz once it's started, they'll even stop it in its tracks.
1. Get Regular Trims
If you leave it a bit too long between trims, you might notice an increase in your frizz. Even if you're trying to grow your hair out, it does need a bit of TLC from time to time. If you skip a trim, your hair will be more likely to break and develop split ends, which is a recipe for frizzy hair. Keep the frizz at bay with regular visits to the hairdresser.
2. Shampoo & Conditioner
Regular trims are a great place to start, but what about the products you put in your hair?
If you have fine hair and struggle with frizz, you'll see great benefits with the Alfaparf Semi Di Lino Curls Refining Treatment Kit. Containing shampoo, conditioner, and a complimentary microfibre towel, this kit will help you naturally define your waves and curls, soften and hydrate your hair, and detangle those unruly knots and frizzy strands.

The formula's anti-humidity and anti-frizz ingredients keep your hair smooth day in and day out.
3. Water Temperature
Most of us love a hot shower, but did you know that water that's too hot could actually be contributing to your frizz woes? While hot water opens your hair cuticles, it also causes your hair shafts to swell - meaning more frizz. Cold water isn't always the best for your hair, either. Although it does reduce frizz, it won't do much to remove dirt, oil or sweat, and your hair won't feel great even after you've washed it. The solution, Go warm. Cleanse your hair with warm or hot water first, and then use cold water for the finishing rinse.
4. Nourishing/Hydrating Hair Mask
Hair masks are all the rage, and it's not hard to see why. Goldwell Kerasilk Control Intensive Smoothing Mask will help you stop even the most problematic frizz in its tracks. With its added keratin and liquid silk, this mask smooths hair to provide outstanding control and shine.
