What Causes Frizzy Hair?

What Causes Frizzy Hair?

There are a number of factors to blame for frizzy, flyaway hair. 

Dryness is the number one cause of frizz. When the hair shaft is dry, the cuticle is rough. The outer layer takes in more moisture from the air causing it to swell and frizz rather than sit neatly in place where you want it. 

The weather can also play havoc with some hair types causing it to boof out or frizz. During humid weather, there’s more moisture in the air to bond to the hair shaft causing the frizz.  

Rough treatment from vigorous towel drying after washing can be the cause of frizz in some people. A Unicorn Hair Towel Wrap is ideal because it dries hair five times faster than cotton and without the damage caused by friction. Using a towel wrap also reduces or eliminates the need for a blow dryer which can increase the frizz factor.
