What Causes Frizz?

Firstly, you shouldn't be ashamed of frizz. Frizz can give your hair volume, shape and a great curl pattern, so don't be afraid of it.

If you've recently stopped straightening your hair and/or stopped using products with heavy ingredients, your hair will need time to learn how to manage frizz by itself and adapt to your new products.


  • Frizz is usually a sign of a lack of moisture.
  • If you have wet frizz, this can be a sign that your hair needs protein.
  • Always check to see if your hair needs more moisture or protein (see previous post).


  • Traditional "terry" towels get into your hair and pull moisture out, creating frizz.
  • Product build-up can cause frizz. Make sure you're cleaning your scalp well.
  • Brushing your hair dry.


  • Try layering 2 or more gels when styling. You will get different qualities out of each gel and more hold.
  • Use "praying hands" method to apply your styling products.
  • Don't touch your hair until it's 100% dry.
