Hair can look frizzy for a variety of reasons, but the most common cause is lack of moisture.
When hair is dry, it can become rough and brittle, causing the cuticles (outermost layer of the hair shaft) to become raised and uneven.
This can result in hair that appears frizzy and unruly.
LACK OF MOISTURE
Our warm weather also contributes to frizziness as excessive heat cause cuticles to open up and become more porous, leading to moisture being absorbed into the hair. When hair tries to absorbs too much moisture from the air, it has the potential to develop a natural curl and become frizzy. This excess moisture leads to the formation of additional hydrogen bonds between the keratin strands, which disrupts the hair’s outermost layer, known as the cuticle, resulting in frizz.
Hair that has been excessively dried due to chemical treatments, such as colouring, perming, or relaxing, can deplete the hair’s natural oils and disrupt its moisture balance. This can result in dryness, reduced elasticity, and difficulty retaining moisture.
Frizzy, wild, untamed hair is a common experience many of us have living in tropical Singapore. Humidity can also contribute to frizz, particularly in hair that is already prone to dryness.
When the air is humid, it contains moisture, which can be absorbed by the hair strands. This moisture causes the hair cuticle, the outermost layer of the hair, to swell and lift. As a result, the hair becomes more porous and prone to absorbing additional moisture from the air. Protective hairstyles, like braids or updos, can minimize the exposure of the hair to humidity.
GENETICS & HAIR TYPES
Genetics and hair type can also play a role, as some hair types are naturally more prone to frizz than others.
Straight hair is generally less prone to frizz due to the easy distribution of natural oils.
Wavy hair, with its textured S-shaped patterns, it’s susceptible to frizz due to its increased surface area and uneven oil distribution.
Curly hair, characterized by its oval or elliptical shape, causes dryness and frizz as oils struggle to travel the entire hair length.
Coily/kinky hair, with tightly coiled strands, faces challenges in oil distribution, leading to increased frizz, breakage, and shrinkage.
To combat frizz, it’s important to keep hair moisturized and protected from the elements.
Using hydrating hair products, avoiding excessive heat styling, and protecting hair from humidity
with a leave-in conditioner or anti-frizz serum can all help to reduce frizz and keep hair looking smooth and healthy.
