Controlling frizzy hair is a daily struggle for many. The flyaways and frizz can happen to the best of us. You can blame your genetics or the weather - things that are out of your control. But what you can control is the type of brush you use. Choosing the right brush can be the difference between a good and bad hair day - every day.
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.
Everyone is at risk of frizzy hair but curly hair is often more noticeable. Curly hair is drier and therefore more likely to frizz and when individual hair strands don’t come together to form a defined curl, the frizz takes over.
Harsh hair products can be to blame for frizziness. Some people notice that after a hair colour or perm, their hair will feel rougher which lets the moisture in and the frizz begins.
Stressed hair from styling with heat and over washed hair stripped of its natural oils is also prone to cause a bad hair day that can drag on way too long.
Best Brush for Controlling Frizzy Hair
The aim of the game with frizzy hair is to improve moisture, particularly at the ends of the hair where it’s likely to be even drier. Boar bristles are naturally designed with microscopic scales that take the moisture from the scalp and re-distribute it along the length of the shaft as nature intended. You won’t find a plastic brush that can do that!
Many people with naturally frizzy hair use hair products to lock in the moisture. By using a natural boar bristle brush you can do away with the leave-in conditioner, skip the serums and use your natural oils in the scalp.
The Ugly Swan Scream-Free™ brush uses dual technology of natural boar bristles with soft nylon pins to win the war on two fronts - dryness and knots.. The natural boar bristles improve the hair’s moisture by removing the build-up of sebum around the scalp and the nylon pins help with detangling the hair.
If you have plenty of tangles and frizz to tame each morning, use the Ugly Swan Scream-Free™ Maxi Detangling Hair Brush but if your hair is fairly short or fine or you’re looking for a brush for your child, the Ugly Swan Scream-Free™ Palm Hair Brush is best.
