Fine Hair Frizz Issues

Contrary to what you may have heard, fine hair is just as prone to developing frizz as medium or thick hair.  Regardless whether your fine hair is straight, naturally wavy, curly or kinky it's still not immune from developing dreaded frizz.

When frizz occurs on fine hair it's even more problematic than on other types of hair.  Why?  The best way to deal with frizzy hair is to moisturize it.  However, fine or thinning hair is least able to handle all that added hydration without getting overly moisturized, limp, lank and greasy.

Frizz fighting hair products which work miracles on frizz challenged hair which is medium or thick can be problematic or disastrous for fine or thin strands.  Ditto for frizz on straight hair versus naturally wavy, curly or coily.

Too much frizz battling on fine hair can result in oily, stringy and limp tresses.  Luckily the manufacturers of frizz fighting products have recognized the problem and have come up with some new products which are much lighter and less likely to weigh down fine or thin strands.

Frizz fighting ingredients generally include silicones, argan and related oils and polyfluoroesters.  These ingredients are designed to protect, seal and coat the outside of the cuticle locking frizz moisture inside.

The key for people with frizzy fine or thin strands is either to use a lot less of traditional frizz fighters or use products which are specifically advertised as being designed and developed for frizzy fine hair.

Look for products which advertise weightless silicones which are absorbed easily by hair to prevent frizziness, fuzziness and those dreaded fly-a-way strands.

If your fine or thin strands need a rinse-out conditioner, use the lightest you can find and only apply to the parts of your hair which really need the treatment.

Always finish with a cool or cold water rinse to seal the cuticle to add shine and help block frizz.  If you use a detangler opt for one which is a very light spray rather than a heavy cream or similar.

If you use one of the popular argan oil product be sure to use the lightest option available and only use a teeny amount.

Remember, even with products designed to combat frizz on fine or thin strands use only a tiny pea sized.
