How to Get Rid of Frizzy Hair in the Summer

Nothing ruins the perfect sun-kissed summer day quite like waking up to frizzy hair when you were hoping for smooth and sleek locks. Luckily, we’ve got all the tips for how to fix that frizzy hair and get your ‘do under control. Read on for tips and tricks for how to tame your mane.

What causes frizzy hair?

One word: moisture. Well, three words: lack of moisture. When your hair is thirsty, it shows. If it’s not getting enough hydration from inside the hair follicle, the outer layer of your hair will actually pull water from the environment. While this would be very cool in a science lab, it’s not so great when it’s happening on your head.

Combine this with drying summer activities like swimming in chlorinated water, and damage from UV rays, and you’ve got a recipe for unruly frizz.

How to tame frizzy hair

The best way to keep your hair from frizzing is to keep it moisturized. We have product recommendations below, but you can also help your hair by:

  1. Brushing as little as possible so you don’t stimulate frizz.

  2. Rinsing your hair in cold, not hot, water. Cold water keeps the follicles from opening up, and as a bonus, it can give you seriously shiny strands.

  3. Blot-dry your hair, don’t rub or wring it. Rubbing your hair can damage it, and short, damaged strands look frizzier than lengthy, long ones.
