All curly girls have had to deal with frizz at some point in their curl care journey. While frizz isn't necessarily a bad thing, it can be frustrating to deal with if you're looking for sleek, well defined curls. There are some easy things you can do to help minimize frizz, such as keeping your curls well moisturized, drying with a t-shirt or microfiber towel and switching to silk pillowcases. However, to really get frizz free curls you're going to want to start with your curl care regime.
Cleansing: Frizz free curls begins in the shower. Use a sulfate free shampoo to get your curls and scalp clean without removing necessary moisture and natural oils.
Add moisture: In order to stay properly hydrated, curls are constantly seeking moisture. If you haven't provided enough for them, curls will seek it from the air. This means curls will raise their cuticles to allow moisture in, which creates frizz. After you cleanse, make sure to follow up with a moisturizing conditioner.
Protect: Once you've added moisture, lock it in. You can do this by adding in a leave in conditioner, using a priming spray or a light gel. These products will work to seal down your cuticle and lock moisture in, preventing it from escaping. You can layer products on top of each other, starting with a protecting spray first and moving on to gel. Or you can create your own customized cocktail to meet your curl's needs.
Remember, not all curls are the same. In order to get your best, frizz free curls you'll need to consider the texture of your curls, their shape and identify their level of frizz. Form there it'll be much easier to figure out how often to cleanse, when your curls need conditioning and what products will work to give you beautiful, defined and frizz free curls.
