Frizzy And Poofy What To Do
What does Frizzy and Poofy hair tell you? Your cuticle isn’t lying flat, which causes frizzy hair. It may also indicate that your hair’s inner fibers are exposed.
Rinse thoroughly with cold water
Using cold water is key. According to Stacey, Hair Research Analyst, “The outer layer of your hair’s cuticle is opened by hot water, while the inner layer is closed by cold water. Rinsing with cool or cold water will help preserve your hair’s inner layer and keep hydrating oils in place.“
Use the right products
According to Meesh, Chief Hair Product Analyst, “Using the right products makes a big difference.” An excessively harsh shampoo will strip your hair of its natural oils. This can cause tangled strands that frizz when dry. Look for a shampoo and conditioner that is more moisturizing. Also, an interesting fact I found out is it makes a difference in how long you leave the shampoo on your hair. Some shampoos are powerful and leaving them on your hair for a longer period allows the shampoo to strip off even more natural oils. If you have parched hair, then I suggest you pay attention to how long the shampoo is in your hair.
Make use of Argan oil
Moroccan Argan oil is rich in vitamins A and E and is extremely moisturizing. this is one of my favorites. If you need to brush or style your hair right away, it can also help avoid breakage. Look for Argan-based items or work the oil into your ends when your hair is still damp. The reason I love Argan oil is that it’s so effective. The kernels of the argan trees native to Morocco are used to make argan oil. Argan oil has long been used to enhance the protection of skin, hair, and nails, both topically and orally. It contains a mixture of beneficial properties and vitamins that work together to improve skin health.
Try rinsing with apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is made from the juice of crushed apples that have been fermented. It has acetic acid as well as nutrients, including B vitamins and vitamin C. The pH level of your hair can be affected by the water and products you use. The cuticle will raise and frizz if the pH of your hair is too high. Apple cider vinegar rinse will help restore pH balance and add shine to your hair and scalp.
