Frizz Control


There are two types of frizz: the kind caused by damage to the hair shaft and the kind caused by humidity.  Taking a nuanced approach to frizz is important, since solutions will vary depending on the cause. Click on the headings below to learn how to fight frizz with Original Moxie's all natural hair care products.

Damage-Induced Frizz
If you have hair with this type of damage, the best way to eliminate frizz is to take a break from the styling habits that caused it, treat your hair to regular Moisture Detoxes at a Certified Salon , and keep hair protected and pampered with moisturizing, repairative products. Some of our favorites include Emollience™ Pre-treatment and Oasis™ Moisture Gel. Also be sure to deep condition on a regular basis with Intense Quench™

Style your hair with protein-rich products that seal and smooth the hair shaft, such as Mane Tame™ and Hold Up™ Defining Serum. Ingredients such as Rice Protein and Quinoa Protein strengthen the hair and help to keep moisture inside the shaft.

NOTE:  Beware of Keratin Treatments if you have damaged hair.  The high heat may make hair even more brittle and the keratin 'sheath' that is applied to the hair may make it incapable of absorbing much needed moisture from the air and oil from your scalp.

Humidity-Induced Frizz
This type of frizz occurs when hair is medium to high porosity and absorbs moisture from the air, causing individual hairs to swell and the cuticle to lift.

A final rinse with cold water is a good general preventative for this type of frizz and can be aided with a conditioner, such as Featherweight™ or Intense Quench™,  that lowers pH to the optimal level between 4 and 5.  Just as a higher (more basic) pH opens the cuticle and makes hair feel rough, a lower pH will seal it up and make it feel smooth. 

The most important tool in your frizz fighting arsenal is an anti-humectant (or moisture-repelling) definer that coats the hair and keeps the cuticle from lifting. Hold Up™, Mane Tame™ and  Just Gel™, do just that by forming a light film that keeps unwanted moisture from penetrating the hair.
