Whether you have straight hair or crave-worthy curls, frizz knows no boundaries when it comes to hair type. The common denominator, you’ll find, is the condition of hair. Curls become undefined and unmanageable, while straight hair expands so far outward you need to reconsider your spatial awareness when walking through doorways. It all happens to hair that’s lacking moisture. Dry, damaged hair’s more susceptible to frizz because hair’s gasping for moisture found in the air around it. That’s why it’s worse in humid conditions when there’s more moisture in the air.
The solution, you might have guessed, is hydration. And plenty of it! So, if your hair’s dryer than the desert land in central Australia, consider this your oasis. Read on, Aussie adventurers, for your frizz fix… h-AAAA-lelujah!
What causes hair to frizz
If your reflection has you like… STEWTH!... it’s time to regain control of those locks and say hooroo to frizz. And, knowing why it happens is the first step.
So, what causes hair to frizz? You might have noticed that dry, damaged hair’s more prone to it and there’s a reason for this. Frizz is actually the strand swelling because it’s over-absorbed moisture from the air around it. This happens because of:
- raised cuticles
- dehydrated strands
Damaged hair’s more prone to frizz because the strand’s outer layer’s already dry and fragile and the cuticle likely lifted. Dryness can be the first sign of damage and when hair’s dry it seeks hydration. That’s why hair’s most likely to frizz in humid conditions where there’s a lot of moisture in the air.
The solution? Make sure your hair’s choc a bloc (that’s Australian for really full) with moisture!
How to prevent frizzy hair
There are loads of frizzy hair hacks out there, but there are a few components key to calming frizz and preventing it. Products with intensely penetrating properties that target the cause of frizz are a must for sealing in moisture for stronger, smoother and shinier hair.
Frizzy hair can be prevented with the right haircare regime. So, if hair masks for frizzy hair aren’t part of your weekly routine, it’s time to swap out that conditioner for one of these babies…
Hair masks for frizzy hair
All our hair masks are supercharged with botanical Australian ingredients that have learned to thrive and survive in the arid Aussie outback. The perfect little addition to our already potent deep treatments, made for moisture repair and perfect to help de-frizz that mane. You little ripper!
Here’s what you need:
Wrap your hands around our 3 Minute Miracle Calm the Frizz Deep Treatment Hair Mask infused with Australian Hemp Seed Extract. It’s the low maintenance ingredient that’ll have the same effect on those strands. Hemp needs very little water, space or care to survive and grows without the need for pesticides so it’s incredibly sustainable (hemp, hemp hooray!). And, after you use this A-beauty hair hack, those strands will basically take care of themselves, too!
If you’re really short of time and need your hair’s reeeeallly in need of some TLC, try a daily dose of our SOS Frizz Treatment Shot infused with Australian Caviar Lime (faaaaancy) until those tresses bounce back.
Here’s what to do:
- Jump in the shower and cleanse hair using a purifying shampoo like our Mega Shampoo for an everyday clean. This’ll make sure there’s nothing standing in the way of those intensely moisturising ingredients and those troubled tresses. If there’s product build-up or dirt on hair, it acts as a roadblock for all the good nutrients to penetrate the shaft of your hair. So, rub-a-dub-dub, friends! It’s time to lather up.
- On clean, damp hair, apply enough of your treatment of choice, whether it’s our 3 Minute Miracle Calm the Frizz Deep Treatment Hair Mask or SOS Frizz Shot, to cover all strands and work through your hair. Focus on the ends where the hair’s older and more susceptible to damage and frizz. The steam of the shower really helps hair absorb the moisture here.
- Leave for 3 minutes and wash out! Make sure you rinse thoroughly so as not to leave any product sitting on hair for that super lightweight and refreshingly clean feeling.
Top tip: If your hair’s really feeling the heat and needs hydration, leave the treatment in overnight and cover with a shower cap to let those strands soak in the goodness. Effortless beauty with maximum results… it’s the Australian way! That’s the brilliance of our hair masks and deep treatments, you can transform tresses in as little as 3 minutes, or truly treat yourself with an overnight pamper.
For an everyday moisture boost that’ll help protect strands from frizz, try our 3 Minute Miracle Moisture Deep Treatment Hair Mask infused with Australian Macadamia Nut Oil.
