Hey there gorgeous! Did we just catch you enjoying a moment of narcissism while you gaze at your reflection in the nearby parked car’s window? That’s totally cool we say, but the bunch of frizz on that crown of beauty could be something one could easily do away with. You possibly couldn’t agree more, cos hey let’s admit it- flawlessness deserves an equally awesome, frizz free and lustrous mane. Intrigued? Well you are just a five minute read away from some freakishly awesome frizzy hair care tips.
Decoding the frizz code
So you applied a ton of hair products and probably spent close to an hour before hitting the road, but one look at your reflection in the nearest mirror and you know that all that effort amounts to nothing. Here is to catching the bull by the horns and decoding the common question about what causes frizz. The answer is two pronged- dryness and damage, your two sworn enemies behind that unruly and frizzy mane. Just like other body parts, your hair strands crave hydration and moisture. Your hair cuticles (the outermost, non living protective part of the hair shaft) soaks up moisture from the atmosphere and rises in the event of inadequate hydration from within. Drinking adequate amounts of water and following a proper moisture lock hair care regimen is the key to battling dry and frizzy looking lifeless hair.
Incorporating food stuff such as tomatoes, walnuts, chia seeds, spinach, broccoli and lettuces in one’s diet can result in a well moisturized and healthy crown of hair. Listen to your hair signaling for some TLC and indulge in regular hot oil massages and hair mask applications which not only offer a fun way to let your hair down but also rejuvenate and nourish your hair from within.
