    15 Life-Changing Ways To Tame Frizzy Hair

    There's a special place in hell for the person who invented frizz.

    What causes frizz, you ask?

    It's pretty simple. When hair is damaged or dry, the outer layer of hair (the cuticle) lifts, which allows moisture to pass through and swell your hair strands. Basically: dry hair = more moisture in = frizz central. Thankfully, you don't have to stay in a committed relationship with frizz forever.

    1. Keep the heat down on your styling tools.

    2. Wash your hair less often so its natural oils can ~do their thing.~

    3. But when you DO wash your hair, finish off with a deep-conditioning treatment.

    4. Or create your own DIY coconut oil hair mask for some seriously soft hair.

    5. Use sulfate-free shampoos.

    6. Ditto for products without alcohol.

    7. For small areas of frizz, use a mascara wand and hairspray.

    8. Use a flat iron with teeth for extra straightening power.

    9. Whatever you do, avoid the ~towel rub~.

    10. If you have curls, pop a diffuser on your hair dryer.

    11. Or try this amazing plopping trick.

    12. For straight hair, try this ~twisting hack~ for frizz-free waves.

    13. Resist the urge to touch your hair.

    14. Just before you shower, brush out your hair with a boar bristle brush.

    15. And when hair is wet, use a wide-tooth comb.

    May the humidity be ever in your favor.
