What causes frizzy hair?

Frizzy and dull hair can be caused by many things. If you want to learn how to get rid of frizzy hair, you need to know what’s causing it:

Lack of moisture

Frizzy hair is often the result of a lack of moisture and hydration in the hair. When our hair doesn’t get the care it needs, it will dry out, tangle easier, and in the end, will turn into a frizzy mess.

Using too many products

Hair has a natural barrier that protects its moisture and keeps the negative impact of the elements at bay. But over-cleansing can strip the hair of this barrier. The consequence can be damaged, dry, and frizzy hair.

Using the wrong products

Shampoos that contain sulfates or alcohol are another cause of unwanted frizz. Luckily, all our shampoos are completely free of nasty sulfates and just as effective.


High temperatures from styling tools or sunshine in the summer, chlorine in the pool or excessive friction – all have a negative impact on your hair’s structure, leaving it brittle and frizzy.


If you have curly hair, humidity is one of the most common causes of frizz.

How to control frizzy hair

To prevent frizzy hair in the future, make sure to follow a few simple steps and learn how to tame frizzy hair:


Get a regular haircut to remove split ends that can make your hair look more damaged than it actually is.


Try washing your hair with cool, not hot water, don’t use the hairdryer on the highest setting, and minimize your styling with heating tools. Why not try some heatless hairstyles that will leave your hair shiny and frizz-free?

Hair products

Use hydrating products like our Argan Oil & Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner, or our Sandalwood & Grapeseed Natural Oils Infusion, that will help keep the frizz at bay.

Hair care

Try not to wash your hair too often as this can strip your hair of its natural oils. Alternatively, you can also try co-washing which cleans the hair yet preserves its moisture.


Don’t expose your hair to too much friction; it needs TLC just like you! Instead, protect it by putting your hair up at night and being very gentle when towel-drying it.

There you go – frizz will be a thing of the past in no time with our best tips. And if your hair is not only frizzy but is also quite damaged, have a look at our guide on how to deal with damaged hair.
