Use the heat to tame and get rid of frizzy, unruly hair for good!

Every day, nothing seems to calm your concern about hair damage due to heat application.
“Hot styling tools always damage your hair!” But do we have any other choice?

"Protection care" is essential in dealing with frizzy hair

Don’t get us wrong; we love styling our hair as much as you do — blow dry, straighten, curl — but one thing we don’t love is hair frizz. While some of us are more prone to it than others, higher temperatures and humidity can turn even the straightest hair types among us into a poofy, frizzy mess.

Just because hot weather inevitably leads to frizz doesn’t mean you have to scrunch your hair up.
We’ve rounded up the NEW AIRY FLOW range for how to get rid of frizzy hair. Adding these into your hairstyling routine will help keep your hair sleek, smooth, bouncy, and frizz-free from day all the way through night.

What causes frizz?

Frizz typically affects hair strands with a distorted shape or uneven distribution of the Cortex.

Everyone’s hair can get frizzy even if it’s straight. People with straight and natural curly hair tend to notice it most when their hair is damaged, dry, or when it’s super-hot or humid outside.

Cortex cells are composed of 2 types of cells: Para-like Cortex and Ortho-like Cortex. These cells are evenly distributed in straight hair, but unevenly distributed in curly hair. In addition to the difference in shape from the time the hair grows, uneven distribution of the Cortex also appears as a characteristic of curly hair.

More so with the hairstyle trends that are increasingly demanding for more and more control of volume, texture, and hair movement, we repeatedly alter our hair texture with heat styling and harmful grooming habits. All of this can cause breakage, tangling, and split ends — making your hair look dry, dull, and frizzy.

At a microscopic level, frizzy and damaged hair has undergone excessive weathering that’s worn down the outermost layers of your hair shaft, known as the cuticle. Once this is removed, the inner layer is exposed, which can lead to hair breakage. In other words, having frizzy tresses is a sign of major hair damage that has compromised the structure of your hair strands and stripped its hydration away.

What happens when hair frizzes?

Hair cuticles are made up of little scales that protect the hair strands. When examined under a microscope, a healthy cuticle lays down smooth, like the scales of a fish. Beneficial moisture from natural oils produced by your scalp help keep those scales down in healthy hair.

But as hair becomes dry and damaged, its appearance resembles a pine cone: open, rough and prickly. When it’s open and damaged like this, beneficial moisture can escape the hair shaft while moisture from the air enters the hair shaft, causing it to swell and change shape. In other words, it becomes frizzy.

Get rid of frizzy hair once and for all!

So how do you achieve frizz-free strands? The more hydrated your locks are, the more the cuticle layer will lie flat, leaving you with smooth, flyaway-free hair.
