Are you still fighting frizz?

Maybe its time to stop! For years we’ve been fighting frizz in our hair, we try our best and use all sorts of products, attempt to blow dry it smooth and resort to Brazilian Blowouts and Japanese Straight Perms.
Now we look around on catwalks and magazine spreads to find frizz everywhere! Does this mean frizz is now acceptable and ok to sport? Is it finally in fashion?

We all know styles go round in circles, frizz is not a new look its just gone around again and now the young ones want to give it a try, it’s a far cry from the golden girl’s over processed perms or Phil Spector’s crazy mop.  Or, it could just be the fact that we’ve had ultra straight hair for quite some time now that we’re just bored and rebelling against super neat hair.

Curly hair happens because the follicle is bent and curved, the more curved it is, the tighter the curl, so therefore as  the hair grows through with bends in the hair create waves as it gets longer.

Unlike straight hair the natural oils from the roots don’t travel down the hair shaft as easily because of the curl formation hence the hair will be dryer and frizzier looking.
Therefore what’s important to get good looking frizz is for you to get as much product to moisturize the hair, all the way down to the hair lengths. Once applied, the hair should be dried without much disturbance. Once dry the hair can then be shattered to create healthier shiny frizz. For a more extreme frizzy looks like the ones shown here, the ends can be backcombed and a dryer product applied to the ends.

I personally wish I did have the curly hair so I can frizz it out, and enjoy having a lions mane!
