What causes frizz on African American hair? This is a common question asked by many women with natural curly hair. If you have struggled with frizzy hair most of your life, don’t worry girls – you are not alone. And during winter season you probably have had a few hat days. So, yay! We are so happy that Spring is on the way. Well, actually you still may not be frizz free just yet.
Controlling frizz on African American hair is more of nuisance when not managed properly. That’s why it’s super important to keep your hair conditioned and well maintained. Read on to get the scoop on what causes frizz and how to combat it.
Controlling Frizz On African American Hair
Basically, frizz occurs due to the lack of moisture in your hair. But guess what? Humidity can cause frizz too. So you stay in when you think it might rain, or humidity – and oh, no, don’t perspire. Having goofy hair is not sexy, or adorable, and certainly not chic – it’s just frizz! But there ARE solutions. Here are some tips from the expert hair stylists at VIP House of Hair Beauty Supply & Salon in Lancaster that can help you tame that frizzy mane.
Moisturize Your Hair Regularly
When frizz occurs, the outermost layer of the hair strands (the cuticle), opens up and lets the outside air in. To prevent this from happening, you should keep your hair moisturized. At our beauty supply store in Lancaster, our expert African American hair stylists will be happy to help you select the best conditioner for your hair type. We have a nice selection of really good conditioners.
Defrizz with Protective Styling
Protective hairstyles such as weaves and braids are a great way to protect your hair against frizz. When your cuticles are locked in place, you no longer have to worry about frizz-fright. Give us a call at (661) 723-0990 to find out how we can give you a beautiful weave hairstyle or create a unique look for you with braids. In the meantime, check out our quality hair bundle deal.
Use a Keratin Protein Treatment
Our hair is already made of 90% keratin protein. Staying vigilant about maintaining a healthy routine can prevent harmful products and habits from damaging each strand. Not only will a keratin treatment aid in managing frizz, it will also create shine, help strengthen damaged hair, and restore lost protein due to styling and shampooing. We can transform frizzy hair into sleek straight tresses and give you hair that rocks!
We recommend visiting us to get a deep conditioning treatment. Our treatments are helpful in moisturizing and conditioning African American hair and are designed to infuse the hair with moisture – leaving it soft and manageable.
