10 Tips For Taming Frizzy Hair

Dealing with frizzy hair can feel like a never-ending battle 😩

Whether it's the sticky humidity of summer or the parching dryness of winter causing your hair woes, you might feel like you're out of options. The good news? We’re here to help! At FARO, we’re not just about products; we provide real solutions that address the root causes of frizz and give you the silky, manageable hair you've always dreamed of 💭 Read on to discover how simple adjustments to your haircare routine can make all the difference.

Tip #1: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate💧  

Keeping your hair hydrated is just as crucial as keeping your body hydrated. When your hair lacks moisture, it tries to absorb it from the surrounding environment, which causes the cuticles to swell and create frizz. To prevent this, use hydrating shampoos and conditioners that infuse your hair with the moisture it craves. Regularly applying a deep conditioning treatment like our one-minute hydration hair mask can also help maintain the hydration levels of your hair, keeping it smooth, manageable, and resilient against the elements. Remember, well-moisturised hair is the foundation of a healthy, frizz-free mane!

Tip #2: Avoid heat damage 🌡️

Although using straighteners or blow dryers might seem like a quick solution, frequent heat styling can seriously dry out your strands, making them brittle and frizzy. Instead, try embracing your natural texture by allowing your hair to air dry. If you do need to use heat, always protect your hair with a heat protectant spray to minimize damage. You can also explore heat-free styling options, such as braiding damp hair for waves or using rollers for curls. Remember, your hair's natural beauty is unique, and with the right care, you can keep it looking healthy and vibrant without relying on excessive heat.

Tip #3: Swap to silk 🔄

The fight against frizz doesn’t stop when you go to sleep. In fact, where you lay your head at night can significantly influence your hair's health. Traditional cotton pillowcases can tug at your hair, causing friction and leading to breakage and frizz. Switching the FARO silk pillowcase minimises this friction, helping you to wake up with smoother, tangle-free hair. Think of it as an overnight spa treatment for your locks!


Tip #4: Nourish from within  🥑

True beauty really does start from the inside! A well-hydrated body and a nutrient-rich diet can do wonders for your hair. Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants help fortify hair health, enhancing its strength, shine, and ability to fight frizz. Here are some superfoods that can boost your hair's vitality:

  • Salmon: Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, it helps to moisturise and strengthen hair.
  • Avocados: This delicious millennial staple is an excellent source of healthy fats and vitamins E and C, which can enhance hair shine and strength.
  • Nuts: Almonds, walnuts, and pecans are rich in essential fatty acids and zinc, which can reduce hair fall and promote growth.

Including these foods in your diet supports your overall health and ensures your hair is less prone to frizz, making it smoother and more manageable. Remember, what you put into your body is just as important as what you apply to your hair!

Tip #5: Trim regularly ✂️  

Regularly trimming your hair is a simple yet essential step in maintaining its health and vibrancy. Regular trims help prevent frizz and stop split ends in their tracks. If ignored, split ends can worsen, travelling up the hair shaft and causing increased damage and frizz. Aim to get a trim every 6-8 weeks to keep your hair looking its best. This routine keeps your ends fresh and promotes healthier, smoother hair overall. Think of each trim as a fresh start for your locks, ensuring they stay soft and frizz-free!

Tip #6: Chill out ❄️  

Ending your shower with a splash of cold water might give you a shiver, but it's a fantastic trick for boosting your hair's health. This chilly rinse closes the hair cuticles, locking in moisture and keeping frizz at bay, giving your hair a sleeker, shinier look. It's also a great way to wake up your senses and kick-start your morning!

Tip #7: Wash wisely 🚿  

Overwashing can strip your hair of natural oils, leaving it dry and prone to frizz. To combat this, extend the time between washes and opt for a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo. These shampoos effectively cleanse your hair without stripping away its natural moisture, helping to preserve its smoothness and shine. Adjusting your washing routine and choosing the right products can keep your hair looking fresh and frizz-free without compromising its health.

Tip #8: Practice gentle drying 💕

Being gentle when drying your hair can make a world of difference in taming frizz and maintaining its health. Instead of vigorously rubbing your hair with a towel, use a gentler approach by blotting it with a microfibre towel or an old t-shirt. This simple switch minimises friction and prevents roughing up the hair cuticles, ultimately reducing frizz and leaving your hair smoother and more manageable.

Tip #9: Embrace the power of oils 💆

Oils like argan, coconut, and jojoba are packed with nutrients that penetrate deep into the hair shaft, providing intense nourishment and hydration. They also help to seal the cuticle, smoothing down unruly strands and reducing frizz. Whether you use them as a leave-in treatment or as part of your styling routine, incorporating these oils into your hair care routine can leave your locks looking sleek, shiny, and effortlessly smooth.
