Frizzy Hair FAQs

No one likes frizzy hair, but what's causing it and what can you do to prevent it? Find the answers to your frizzy hair questions:


Q: What causes frizz?

A: Frizz happens with over-use of heat-styling tools, chemical damage, over-exposure to the sun, or chlorine from pools. You can begin to mend the damage with a salon-quality cleansing system (and ask your stylist if Malibu conditioning services are offered in their salon), followed by a deep-conditioning treatment. Redken All Soft Heavy Cream is a great choice for an at-home weekly deep conditioner.


Q: How can I prevent frizz from happening?

A: Start with getting an inch or two trim every 6-8 weeks to cut off the flyaways and split ends. Then on a daily basis, your shampoo and conditioner will make a big difference. Using a texture-balancing shampoo will give your thirsty strands the moisture they need. And to complete your style, opt for a product like Biolage ExquisiteOil Protective Treatment for added shine and to seal out humidity.


Q: Is blow drying ok?

A: If you protect it, it’s ok. Blow drying makes hair more susceptible to frizz, so use a thermal treatment like Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum to seal the strands and speed up the drying time. Or skip blowing dry and apply a leave-in treatment like Paul Mitchell Full Circle Leave-In Treatment or a styling cream like Redken Frizz Dismiss Rebel Tame on damp hair and let it air dry.

Q: How can I smooth out the frizz?

A: Calm frizz and flyaways with styling products that smooth the unruly locks. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum is a multitasking serum that tames frizz and leaves your hair shiny and silky. Or try a pomade like DESIGNLINE Pliable Fixer to smooth flyaways.


If you’re not sure which anti-frizz products is right for you, ask your stylist for recommendations. They know your hair and can help you take control, so you’ll be back to looking like yourself in no time.
