This type of frizz happens when hair absorbs moisture from the air, causing individual hairs to swell and separate from one another.
If you have curly hair, humidity may tighten your curl pattern in addition to increasing volume. 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. 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 what we call 'Proactive Hydration'. This is simply applying a humectant product, like Oasis™ Moisture Gel
or Everyday Leave-in™
, to hair when it is wet. By binding moisture to your hair, you reduce the likelihood that it will absorb moisture from the air once it is dry.
Last, but not least, it is helpful to apply a styler that seals the hair shaft, protecting it from humidity throughout the day. Hold Up™
, Mane Tame™
and Just Gel™
, do just that by forming a light film that keeps unwanted moisture from penetrating the hair.
