8 easy tips for taming frizzy hair at home

With frizzy hair we have all most certainly been there - the struggle is real. Whether it’s caused by heat damage, humidity or a natural dryness to your locks, frizz can be classified as one of the all-time pain points of hair maintenance, so we’ve put together some of our top tips for taming the frizz at home.


Regular Trims

Regular trims to your hair will help to eliminate split ends and breakage that contribute massively to unwanted frizz. Try trimming hair every 6-8 weeks to keep it revitalised and healthy.

Invest in a silk pillowcase

Cotton and linen pillowcases cause friction by pulling the hair fibres whilst you're sleeping, thus creating tangles, frizz and bed-head the following morning. The natural properties found in silk are much gentler on both your skin and hair, helping to reduce friction, split ends, leaving you waking up with smoother and sleeker hair. 

Spritz the heat protection

From humidity to straighteners, heat can contribute significantly to frizz as well as damage to the hair health. When choosing to use heated tools or going out to enjoy the sunshine, apply a product loaded with heat protection to help minimise damage and protect hair from heat up to 230. The L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Sleek Serum is enriched with Keratin and Cocoa Butter..

Treat locks to a mask

Using a deep-conditioning hair mask once a week will help the hair cuticles to repair and close (the gaps in cuticles contribute significantly to hair frizz). The L’Oréal Elvive Full Resist Power Mask is a lightweight formula that works in affinity with the hair fibre to intensely nourish dry and frizzy hair. It is also, enriched with ingredients such as; Biotin, Vitamin B5 and Arginine. 

Ditch the towels

Time to trade in your towel for a microfibre alternative. Using a heavy towelling fabric can be too abrasive and rough on hair, especially as it’s in its most vulnerable state when wet - cotton towels can cause too much friction and therefore increase breakage. Try investing in a microfibre hair towel, or even using an old t-shirt that you have lying around the house as a friendlier alternative. 

Indulge in some oil

Whilst hair is still wet after washing, try applying a couple of drops of the L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil through the lengths,  to leave hair nourished and illuminated. Hair oil works by acting as a barrier, keeping humidity from penetrating and causing flyaways. This oil is enriched with 6 flower extracts.

Resist the urge to touch

It might be tempting to rearrange your parting, twist your ends around your fingers and constantly throw your hair up into a ponytail only to undo it minutes later - but the more we touch our hair, the more the cuticle will begin to part and cause frizz. Resist the urge to touch and keep the frizz away.

Touch up flyaways with a toothbrush

Pro tip: for those annoying flyaways and baby hairs that always seem to make themselves known, try using a (clean) mascara wand or a toothbrush. Apply a small amount of hairspray on the brush and gently target unruly strands of frizz that need to be smoothed out. Be sure to use an alcohol-free hairspray as the alcohol can cause the hair cuticle to swell and induce more frizz in the long run.
