Frizz is hair that does not align with the surrounding hairs. Instead, it stands up or curls independently. The result is a fuzzy and irregular texture. There are three main causes of frizz. Those are genetics, hair damage, and humidity.
When your hair lacks moisture, it becomes frizzy. Dry hair results in rough cuticles. Combine that with humid weather, and you have a recipe for frizz.
Dryness is the most common cause of dryness. Naturally curly and wavy hair tends to frizz more easily. Hair frizz is actually the first sign of lack of moisture.
