You do what you can to keep your hair neat and clean, but no matter how hard you try, your hair becomes frizzy. And whenever the frizz appears, it is more than frustrating and humiliating. That is because the impression others have of you when they see your frizzy hair is that you don’t care about your appearance. Things could not be further from the truth.
Frizzy hair will happen in a variety of settings, and those are simply beyond your control. However, the great news is that you can tame frizz quickly and effortlessly. You need to know the reason behind frizz as well, so you cut yourself slack.
Why Does Frizz Occur?
Frizz occurs when your hair dries out, and it is due to dehydration. When there is a raising of the hair cuticle layer, this allows moisture to pass through the hair strands. That causes swelling of the strands, which ends up leading to frizz. Those prone to frizzy hair have wavy or curly hair because the type of hair dehydrates much quicker than those with straight hair.
However, the good news is there are easy hacks for getting rid of frizz right away and quickly. It all boils down to properly hydrating your hair. Not everything will work for everyone, but you will come across the right hack for you if you struggle with frizzy hair.
How To Quickly Remove Frizz?
The great news is that there is no single way to remove frizz from your hair. And there are quick and easy ways to do that because you don’t have the time to fix your hair and remove the frizz if you are consistently on the go. In other words, these hacks do not involve you having to spend hours styling your hair or running to the salon. Let’s go over the fast and easy ways you can get rid of frizz.
Water is what you need when it comes to hydrating anything, and since you know that frizzy hair results from dehydration, this is a simple hack. You can either take a spray bottle and pour water into it and spray your hair. Then go and comb your hair to moisten each strand of hair. You can also dampen your hands and fingers and run them through your hair, which has the same effect. That will immediately get rid of frizz, but this means you will have to walk around with damp hair if you are in a rush and don’t have the time to dry your hair.
2. Straightening Serum
If you tend to get frizzy hair often because of having curly or wavy hair, you will want to keep a bottle of straightening serum that controls frizz at all times with you. You will want to keep a brush with you to keep those things in your purse. Just spray some of the serum on your hair, and brush it well, or run your fingers through it if you forgot your brush while you are out. Spray the serum the most on the area of your hair, where it is incredibly frizzy. That will keep frizz at bay for a while.
3. Wear A Hat
If you are in a big rush and don’t have time to spray your hair with water or straightening Serum, you can always wear a hat to cover your frizz. Another idea is to put your hair into a bun. Therefore, you will want to keep a hat with you and a few other elastics if you’re going to put your hair into a bun.
However, those are methods for getting rid of frizz or hiding frizz quickly. You will want to know about strategies for keeping frizz at bay naturally, so you are less likely to encounter it.
How To Keep Frizz At Bay Naturally?
If you want to prevent future frizz as much as you possibly can, you will naturally want to keep it at bay. Fortunately, there are some straightforward methods to do that. Let’s go over some strategies for getting rid of frizz and even preventing it from happening.
1. Coconut Oil
You are aware that coconut oil has some excellent properties that are antibacterial as well as moisturizing. Therefore, coconut oil will moisturize your hair and banish bacteria at the same time. What you want to do is to warm up the oil and then begin massaging it into your hair and scalp. Allow the oil to soak into your hair for a good half-hour. After that, a half-hour is up, then go and rinse it off and only use hypoallergenic shampoo. You can do this once or twice a week, and it will keep your hair virtually frizz-free.
Who puts beer into your hair? Wouldn’t it make your hair smell strange? You have to realize that beer has plenty of antioxidants, nutrients, and minerals that can be fantastic for your hair health. Dark beer is better than light beer. Pour some beer into a spray bottle and spray your hair. Allow the beer to sit in your hair just for about ten minutes, then rinse and wash it off. You can do this once or twice a week as well.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar
You can create a mixture of part apple cider vinegar and part water to take into your shower. After you shampoo your hair and rinse it off, pour the mixture onto your hair and allow it to set in for a few minutes. Make sure you pour it on very slowly as you are finishing up with your shower. When you are ready to rinse it off, rinse it with moderately cold water and then avoid drying your hair with a towel after.
Even if you don’t use apple cider vinegar, you can help reduce frizz in the shower by allowing cold water to rinse your hair towards the end of your shower. The cold water locks moisture into your hair. Then once you leave the shower, avoid towel drying your hair. You can use an old cotton shirt to dry your hair if you don’t have the time for air drying. The fibers in the towel are rough and encourage frizz. Before getting into the shower, you will want to brush your hair, so there are no tangles and snags.
Another essential thing to keep in mind when you use hot tools such as hair straightening brushes or irons to apply heat protectant spray first. That will keep your hair protected from the heat, which will keep the moisture in, and that wards off frizz.

Those with curly or wavy hair are more prone to frizz than others because that type of hair dries out very quickly. Dry hair leads to frizz.
