When curly clients sit in your chair, it’s never long before they fire off questions focused on frizz—how to prevent it, tame it, get rid of it! Frizz is the curly girl’s arch nemesis and, as a stylist, it’s up to you to arm her with tools for battle.
But first, you have to figure out what’s causing the fight—and that’s not always easy.
“We can confuse frizzy hair as being in bad condition and that’s not necessarily true,” says Kaz Amor, a stylist at Warren Tricomi Salon in West Hollywood, Calif. “It’s usually the way curls are being handled that causes the hair to frizz.”
Clients won’t always tell you how they’re handling their hair at home — whether they’re too embarrassed to reveal bad habits or simply don’t know any better. You have to dig deep for answers.
Here, a stylist’s guide to the undercover causes of frizz — and how you can help your clients fight back.
Cause #1: Your client avoids styling products.
Cause #2: Your client is using the wrong products.
Cause #3: Your client is not applying products correctly.
Cause #4: Your client is not using enough product.
Cause #5: Your client skips over maintenance.
Cause #6: Your client has a drying dilemma.
Cause #7: Your client fibs about the flat iron.
Cause #8: Your client overdosed on color.
