Girls with curls, we feel your pain: humidity is your worst nightmare, and brushing your hair always feels like risky business.

Tangled tresses and messy manes aren’t Aussome – but curly doesn’t have to mean chaotic. Ten minutes after leaving the house and your hair quickly descends from fab…to frizz. And yes, whilst big hair is brilliant, there’s a very fine line between cascading curls and that unruly, lion’s mane vibe.

How to tame frizzy hair

The main cause behind your frizz is dehydration. Those little wispy bits and fluffy lengths that can make your hair look triangular in silhouette? They’re just thirsty, poor things. Frizz, whether it’s on long frizzy hair or short, occurs when moisture enters the cuticle of the hair making it swell. If locks are nourished and hydrated, the outer layer lies flat and smooth whereas if it's dry or damaged, the cuticle becomes rough and the hair unruly. Next minute, you’re searching ‘how to tame frizzy hair?’. It’s most common in dry types, especially people with colour or chemically treated hair, curly hair and, surprisingly, even fine hair.

Fluffy, puffy hair is a constant battle for many women but the fight against flyaways can be won if you’re armed with the right products. But even if your hair is super healthy, it can be prone to an attack of the frizzies when it comes into contact with humidity. Holiday hair, but just not the kind you’ve ever wanted annoyingly.
