What causes Frizzy hair?
Hair becomes frizzy when it lacks moisture! Simple. But, how the hair lacks moisture can be a more complex cause.
Let’s adjust our thinking a little, when we say our hair needs moisture, what it really needs is a combination of moisture and lipids.
Lipids account for around 4% of the weight of the hair. Lipids can be fats, oils, waxes, sterols, and triglycerides that are insoluble in water, and are smooth to the touch. The main functions of lipids in hair is to improve the cuticle layer and seal it so it becomes “hydrophobic” (repelling water). Once sealed, the cuticle will stop the release of moisture from within and will stop moisture (humidity) from penetrating the cuticle.
When hair is damaged, the internal protein structure and essential lipid protection layer are weakened, leaving hair dry, fly-away and hard to manage. Hair can become damaged from brushing, heat styling, ultraviolet rays, salt water, chlorine or chemical services.
Other causes of Frizzy hair are sourced from:
|Description of the Hair Type: Thick, coarse, curly hair. The hair shaft generally has a wider diameter and the shape is more elliptical (oval), which makes the hair more susceptible to mechanical damage. Curly hair represents even more of a challenge as the follicle is curved and grows differently from the scalp.|
Porosity is also a major issue with course and curly hair. The shape of the hair doesn't allow for all of the cuticle scales to lie flat and overlap one another along the axis of the hair, especially at the outer edges of the hair strand. This creates areas of discontinuity in the cuticle layer, which adds porosity to the hair. Curly hair has a tendency to be naturally higher in porosity than straight hair.
This is because the spirals in the helical configuration of the curls create areas where individual cuticle scales are raised slightly away from the length of the hair. The curlier the hair is, the more breaks you have in the smoothness of the surface, so the porosity is invariably increased.
Increasing porosity of hair has been found to correlate with decreasing tensile strength of the hair. What this means is that as the porosity goes up, it becomes much easier to break the hair. Gaps and flaws in the surface, which allow the hair to absorb much higher quantities of moisture, create stress concentration sites and weakness throughout the strand that cause the hairs to break easily.
