4 Ways to Fight Winter Frizz and Flyaways

Frizz and flyaways are undeniably annoying. Even if you’re totally put together, frizz and stray hairs just look unkempt.

Frizz and flyaways can occur at any time. Often, our hair flies every which way or sticks straight up during the winter, when heated indoor air contrasts the cold outdoor air.

Here are 4 ways to fight winter frizz and flyaways.

Condition regularly

Frizz and flyaways are often caused by dry hair. To prevent these problems, condition every time you wash your hair. Also, make sure that you use the right products for your hair type.

Use a moisturizing conditioner if you have fine, thin hair. A smoothening conditioner is ideal for those with coarse hair. This product will help keep your hair soft and smooth while weighing your frizzy hair down a bit.

Use a clarifying shampoo once a month

If you have frizzy hair, you may be using anti-frizz products to tame your hair. However, these products often contain silicone that can build up on your tresses.

Flyaway is usually caused by too much product build-up. If you’ve been using anti-frizz, along with other hair care products, chances are you’re also experiencing flyaways. Use a clarifying shampoo once a month to get rid of excess products.

Pamper strands once a week

Winter can wreak havoc on your hair. Chilly temperatures, wind, and cold air, along with hot indoor air, can strip moisture from your strands. This makes your hair susceptible to static.

Bring moisture back to your hair by doing deep conditioning treatments. Weekly hot oil treatments are also a good idea. Not only will it improve circulation to your scalp, it can also revitalize and hydrate even the driest strands.

Be gentle with your hair

Hair breakage can also lead to flyaways. Be gentle with your hair to prevent breakage. Limit the use of hot tools. Frequent use of blow dryer, straightening and curling iron can lead to heat damage, making your hair more susceptible to breakage. Also, handle wet hair gently. Our strands are more pliable when wet. Blot your hair gently with a microfiber towel and comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb after showering.
