Frizzy hair gets a bad rap.
Since forever, we were taught to banish it at all costs. Opting for harsh chemicals, severely “snatched” hairstyles, or buying overpriced serums at the first signs of humidity has become our go-to lines of defense, hands down.
And yes, while more useful, less oppressive hair care methods like hydrating masks, cool water rinses and avoiding excessive friction will combat frizz as well, in most cases, its presence in textured strands has less to do with neglect and more to do with aesthetics. Our hair can have frizz and be healthy.
In fact, frizz is in and we should embrace the hell out of it!
