The best hair products for frizzy hair!
Here are the best products you can use to tame your dry, frizzy hair!
Something we can all agree on is that dry and frizzy hair is not the one! But what products are out there that can help us tame our tresses and get that shiny, sleek and smooth look we all aspire to have…?
Hair Products For Frizzy Hair: Sulphate-Free Shampoo Can Help Dry, Frizzy Hair!
It’s not really a secret anymore that sulphates are no friend to your hair. Sulphates are strong detergents, simply added to hair products like shampoo to give a more dramatic lathering effect.
Sulphates are actually really aggressive and strip the hair of natural oils that are essential for moisture retention. This then messes with your hair cuticle and results in frizz.
Turn to sulphate-free product lines, like all of Cel’s Hair Care Range, particularly with your frequent products like shampoo and conditioner. Cel’s Microstem Shampoo and Conditioner are both sulphate-free, paraben-free, cruelty-free, hypoallergenic and suitable for all hair types (including chemically treated and colour-treated hair!) so you can shop and wash your frizzy hair in confidence.
Hair Products For Frizzy Hair: Gooping On Glycerine Can Help Dry, Frizzy Hair!
Alongside cutting out the sulphates, you want a load of glycerin in your hair products too. Glycerine is an odourless and colourless liquid that is usually derived from vegetable oils. It’s a humectant, which means it attracts and pulls water in!
Glycerine helps combat frizz by penetrating the hair shaft and hydrating it from the core. It also acts as a protectant to the strand by providing an outer coating. This powerful, non-toxic sugar compound works as a moisture sponge to keep our scalp and hair hydrated, whilst preventing skin irritation and also promoting hair growth!
Glycerine features heavily as a top ingredient in many of Cel’s Microstem product range. Glycerine can be found in Cel’s Microstem Shampoo and Conditioner which strengthens and thickens existing hair and our Hair Thickening Mask which deeply conditions and nourishes the hair and scalp, whilst strengthening and smoothing dry, damaged and frizz-prone hair.
You should use our hair mask once a week to nurture and hydrate any frizzy locks.
Hair Products For Frizzy Hair: Coconut Oil Can Help Dry, Frizzy Hair!
Coconut oil dominates the beauty industry as the miracle cure-all and can work wonders for frizzy hair.
Just massage it into your scalp and cover your hair strands from root to tip. Keep the hair wrapped in a towel for a minimum of 15 minutes, or leave in your DIY hair mask as you sleep overnight for an even deeper condition. Then, wash the hair with a gentle sulphate and paraben-free shampoo and conditioner.
If you’re looking to fight off frizz quickly without having to wash it out, simply pop a pea-sized amount of coconut oil onto your hands, rub them together, then smooth down over any flyaways before going about your day!
Hair Products For Frizzy Hair: Slathering On The Serum Can Help Dry, Frizzy Hair!
Frizz is always likely to turn up after the hair’s been washed and dried… Typical, right? You need to ham up that hydration with a serum.
By locking-in hydration, a good serum can support your hair’s structure and enriches your tresses from root to tip. Hydrating the hair keeps it protected against harmful stressors, revealing smoother, frizz-free and healthier looking hair.
Look for moisturising and restoring ingredients, such as Hydrolysed Proteins and Ginseng Stem Cells - these will help to rebuild damaged hair structures by replacing lost proteins and colloids. Repairing these damaged areas can result in more durable, smoother, and shinier hair.
Further Tips On Fighting Frizzy Hair
Turn Down The Heat: If your heat styling tools are on a setting higher than 185 °C, you’re at risk of causing your hair cuticle to swell which will do damage and cause frizz. A safe range is anything between 120-150 degrees °C. You simply have to have patience and hold the tool for longer when looking to style a sleeker, smoother look.
Let Your Hair Dry Naturally: If you can, let your hair dry naturally at least 90% of the way to help avoid disrupting the wet and vulnerable hair strand, and thus support it in staying smooth. When blow drying, keep the drier on a low heat and let the hair partially dry as much as possible before hand. Towel dry? It’s time to upgrade to a microfibre towel. A normal bath towel is abrasive and rough, which can literally cause your hair to break and frizz. Be kinder to your hair with microfibre, or even an old t-shirt if you prefer to dry your hair with material!
Sleep On Silk: Invest in a silk pillowcase, as this really helps protect the hair better than cotton whilst you sleep. Silk maintains your natural hair oils, which is especially important if you do battle with frizz!
In addition, upgrade your hair scrunchies to silk too! This will combat any excess friction for optimum breakage prevention, and smoother hair.
