Since frizz is one of the hottest topics amongst our Curlettes (that’s the name of our amazing community of curly customers and VIP newsletter subscribers), I thought it would be a great idea to create a cute but highly effective graphic on how to get rid of frizz.

Frizzy hair can be a nightmare!
Most of us have experienced frizz at some point in our lives and it can be one of the most annoying hair qualms.
If you’ve been battling with frizz, don’t fret.
Here’s one awesome thing you can do to stop your hair from frizzing up and driving you crazy.
Wanna know what that tip is?
It’s simple. Stop using a towel to dry your hair and instead us a t-shirt.
Yes, a t-shirt!
Why ditch a towel?
Firstly, the rough texture of towels not only dries your hair out but also causes friction when it rubs against your hair. This in turn leads to frizz.
Imagine, rubbing something rough-textured against something fragile and frail.
Now contrast that to using something a soft-textured t-shirt on your hair?
When you think about it, using a towel on your delicate tresses makes no sense if you want softer, frizz-free curls.
So, if you’re experiencing frizz, the first thing you should do is swap your hair towel for a soft, cotton t-shirt.

Isn’t it boiling outside! Whilst many of us love the hot weather, our hair doesn’t!
High levels of heat can cause your hair to dry out and lose moisture.
The funny thing is that even though our hair doesn’t love heat, many of us see the summer time as the perfect period to wear our hair out. The choice to wear your hair out is often called ‘wash n go’ because all you have to do is wash your hair and…go!
So how can you wash n go without damaging your hair? Is it possible to wash n go without damaging your hair?
Here are some tips and strategies to bear in mind when doing a wash n go.
Condition. Condition. Condition!
Conditioning your hair is vital during the hot summer months. Make sure you condition before wash n going so that your hair is well moisturized and prepped to handle the heat. A super slipper conditioner will help with detangling and will make combing your hair so much easier.
Whilst wearing your hair out everyday is tempting, it could potentially cause a lot of damage to your hair and might increase the chances of single strand knots, tangles and split ends. Rather than wearing your hair out everyday, be selective and wear it out on alternative days. You could for instance wear it out on a Monday but not Tuesday, Wednesday but not Thursday and so forth.
Protect it at night.
The night time is the perfect period to nourish your hair back to health. Before dozing off and falling asleep, take a few minutes to detangle with a wide toothed comb or high-performing brush, apply oil to your hair and scalp and tie a headscarf. Doing these three things will protect your hair at night and prevent it from damage during the day.

Frizzy hair has been the bane of women’s lives since… forever!
Have you ever felt as though no matter how many products you’ve tried, your hair constantly feels dry and limp?
Have you ever ran your hands through your hair to find an odd number of hair strands falling out? If so, you’ve probably experienced dry hair.
Dry hair is particularly common amongst women with naturally curly, frizzy or Afro hair.
Well, scientists note that every twist and bend in one’s hair creates a place of fragility.
This means that curly girls and guys have hair that is naturally more fragile and delicate than other hair types. As a result, curly hair textures are more prone to breaking than straight hair.
The question that many curly girls and guys ask is:
‘Can I cure dry hair?’ and if so,’how?’
Here are three simple yet effective tips for preventing and reducing dryness.
Avoid heat and excessive chemical processing.
If you’re planning on chemically treating your hair whether by dyeing it, relaxing, perming or any other method then we highly recommend visiting a professional and experienced hair stylist who knows how to care for chemically treated hair.
Don’t run from water!
Embrace that you need to keep your hair cleansed often (but not too often) and that applying water before applying any product is essential to keep your hair in the best condition.
Accept that you weren’t born with slick straight hair!
If your hair is naturally curly, coily, frizzy, kinky (or a glorious combination of all of these textures) then accept that your hair wasn’t designed to be super straight!
Adding heaps of heat everyday won’t make it more beautiful, in fact it will probably destroy your hair and leave you feeling miserable.
