De 7 beste tips om je kroeshaar te verzorgen
Taking care of frizzy hair, it can sometimes be a difficult task! Frizzy hair is difficult to model because the many different types of curls can differ enormously from each other. Similarly, it is common for frizzy hair to become knotted, dry and frizzy, making it difficult to comb and care for frizzy hair properly.
In this article we explain what frizzy hair is and we give 7 golden tips to better manage this type of haircut so that you can take optimal care of it!

What is frizzy hair?

Frizzy hair is hair with very many small, dense curls varying in size. These contiguous curls pile up into a massive mass. Frizzy hair is very common in black men. For example, an afro haircut is a very recognizable cut for frizzy hair.

7 tips to take care of your frizzy hair!

Below we give you 7 tips with product advice that can help you to get your frizzy hair in better shape and keep it healthy!
  1. Don't wash your hair every day

    Although it applies to every hair type, it is perhaps most applicable to frizzy hair; don't wash your hair every day! If you have frizzy hair, washing your hair daily can be disastrous. By washing your hair daily you remove the naturally present sebum from your hair that it so desperately needs to maintain the moisture balance of your hair and scalp. Washing twice a week is therefore more than sufficient.

    When you wash it, it is of course also important to use the right shampoo. The Charcoal Mint Shampoo from the S-Curl brand and the Clarifying Shampoo from the Forte Series brand are packed with good ingredients and have the right impact on frizzy hair.

    This shampoo from S-Curl is enriched with activated charcoal, which gives the hair and scalp a deep cleanse, removes toxins and soothes an irritated scalp. The shampoo is also enriched with castor and olive oil that restore frizzy hair and provide good nutrition. The shampoo provides an optimal moisture balance and is free of sulfates, parabens and phthalates (the latter: chemical plasticizers).

    This shampoo from Forte Series is full of natural ingredients such as apple cider vinegar, aloe vera, peppermint oil and shea butter, which provide an intense root-to-tip cleanse for frizzy hair. The shampoo is also free of parabens, sulfates or other harmful chemicals and has a refreshing peppermint scent.
  2. Use a good conditioner

    After shampooing, it is important to use a good conditioner that is suitable for frizzy hair. S-Curl's Charcoal Mint Conditioner is such a high-quality conditioner for frizzy hair. You could also opt for the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Conditioner from Sunny Isle.

    This Charcoal Mint Conditioner from S-Curl is a leave-in conditioner that ensures an optimal moisture balance. This prevents dry and brittle frizzy hair and makes your curls more stretched and defined. The conditioner also ensures that the hair is easier to comb through and more manageable.

    This is an ultra-moisturizing conditioner from Sunny Isle that gives your frizzy hair unprecedented care. The Conditioner is enriched with, among other things, rosehip and sesame seed oil, which are essential for the overall care of the hair and scalp.

  3. Prevent dried out hair

    The third tip is to prevent your hair from drying out. You can do this by not washing it too hot, not exposing it to the sun for too long and using the right products that nourish and protect your frizzy hair. Products such as S-Curl No Drip Activator Moisturizer and DAX 100% Pure Lanolin are some examples of this. In addition to caring for and protecting, these products make your frizzy hair easier to comb.

    The No Drip Activator Moisturizer from S-Curl is a moisturizing cream that gives the hair good care. The moisturizer is enriched with glycerin and vitamin B5 that soften, care for and give your hair a beautiful shine, but also prevent hair breakage.

    DAX 100% Pure Lanolin
    The DAX 100% Pure Lanolin is a super hair conditioner that consists of pure Lanolin. Does not make hair sticky. It moisturizes your hair, gives it shine, makes it soft so that it is easier to give the hairstyle the right shape.
  4. Invest in a good comb and twist sponge

    And with a good comb we mean an Afro comb ! Afro combs are widely used with frizzy hair and to add volume to this type of hair. The Afro comb is a large comb with big, wide teeth that can get into tightly curled hair and lift it up and out of the head without ruining the curl . Only comb your hair when it is damp because when you comb your 'forest' dry, the chance of cracks and breaks is many times greater.

    A twist sponge is a brush made for men with short afro hairstyles. Because this brush has holes in the sponge you can create curls with it. The bigger the holes, the bigger the curls will be. You create this by massaging the sponge with soft circular movements through your frizzy hair. The longer you do this, the more curls you get. 

  5. Leave your hair dryer

    If you have frizzy hair, it is better not to blow dry it. A hair dryer gets very hot and can easily damage frizzy hair. That is why it is wiser to let your hair dry naturally. By AIR!

    Do you still want to blow dry? Then we recommend using a hair dryer that works with ion technology (never hotter than 180 degrees Celsius) and protect your hair with a heat protectant spray or cream.
  6. Style your hair with the right products

    The right products can ensure that your hair stays in shape during the day and that it is also protected and nourished.

    With this cream you change stiff hair with a light curl, within minutes, to beautiful soft and natural curls. The texturizer cream is available in three different strengths, of which this is the strongest variant.

    This pomade is made from natural oils that help to improve your hair. The Pomade moisturizes your hair, prevents it from breaking and optimizes the strength of your hair.

    Sunny Isle Curly Custard
    With this Jamaican Black Castor Oil Curly Custard from Sunny Isle you get the best out of your curly or wavy hair. The curly custard gives your hair good hydration and has a lightweight formula to prevent your curls from sagging. The curly custard is enriched with pure Jamaican castor oil, which is rightly called castor oil and provides intensive nutrition for your curls.
  7. Protect your hair

    Last but least; Protect your hair at all times! You can protect your frizzy hair against breakage and preserve the naturally present oils by using a Do-rag or Wave Cap .

    A Do-rag is a tight-fitting hat that you pull tightly over your head of hair and closes by tying a knot at the back. Do-rags keep hair from getting unkempt and hold newly styled hair in place while it cures.

    A Wave Cap is a kind of cap made of material that can be compared to women's tights. Wave Caps are thin, tight and held on the head by a thick elastic band.
