How to take care of your fine, frizzy, natural curly hair?
Frizzy hair does not always have the distinction of being thick, dense or voluminous. Among its textures, fine frizzy hair requires specific maintenance to prevent and limit breakage. In this article, I offer you a selection of tips and natural products to take care of your hair while contributing to respect for the environment and the development of the African economy.
History of frizzy hair
The frizzy hair represents a large part of African history. Beyond a simple texture, the different hairstyles (possible only with frizzy hair) represented the identity of a people and a community. What are the particularities of frizzy hair? How to take care of it on a daily basis? The keratin distribution is uneven, with a lot of keratin on the inside of the curls, and less on the outside, so it is crimped. The diameter varies greatly along the length of the hair shaft. Thus, in some places, the hair is very fine and therefore more fragile than straight hair.
The shape of the hair
Although it is very reductive, we can generally associate a type of hair with an ethnic group. For example Asian, Caucasian and African hair. Indeed, the distribution of keratin on the hair has an impact on the shape that the latter takes.
Characteristics of fine frizzy hair
How to recognize a fine frizzy hair? To observe the thickness of a hair, experiment and see if it is transparent under the light. In addition, knowing that there is less material (thickness), the water penetrates more easily but evaporates just as quickly.
Density or thickness?
We sometimes confuse the thickness of a hair with its density. Indeed, it is possible to have thick hair while having a low density (number of hairs per cm²). Likewise, you can have fine frizzy hair accompanied by very high density. This type of hair is easily weighed down by creams and butters. So that is the whole challenge; that of knowing your hair type to better maintain it.

How to maintain fine frizzy hair?
Balanta Cosmetics has an increased knowledge of products that are good for your fine frizzy hair. Here are some recommendations:
For better maintenance, choose products rich in protein (silk, soy and oats) because frizzy hair is made up of 97% keratin, a protein of natural origin. In addition, these proteins will create a film around the hair fiber, which will give it more support, tone and volume. However, not all of your products need to contain protein. It is therefore important to alternate to avoid an "overload" of protein on your hair.
- sprays or milks to creams
To avoid :
- Butters, castor oil, or silicone-based hair products, which can make them heavier.
Also, stay away from the no-poo method (using only conditioner to wash your hair).
This method does not effectively remove product deposits. The risk is to accumulate deposits and weigh down fine frizzy hair.
