Frizzy Hair

An article about one woman’s struggle taming frizzy hair

Fellow blogger Heather Staible has a pretty good post on her trials and tribulations with trying to deal with her frizzy hair. She does an excellent job of covering your options if you have frizzy hair, especially if you are near Houston. Must reading for all of you frizzy hair types out there.

Because my hair was not super curly, just wavy in all the wrong places, Taye used an ammonium thioglycolate hair relaxer called Thio on my frizzy hair. The multiple step process took almost three hours, with a good part of time spent at the shampoo bowl because of the frequent solution applications and washings. Taye instructed me to avoid exercising for three days because sodium affects the pH balance of the frizzy hair and can reverse the effect of the relaxer. She also told me to steer clear of bands, barrettes or clips because we were “training the hair.”

The result literally brought me to tears. It has given me the hair I once spent huge amounts of time and products to achieve. The relaxer controls the volume and the general bend of my frizzy hair, but allows me to curl it if I want to.





  1. The best method for drying frizzy hair is to use a hand towel and squeeze the hair up from ends to roots. Squeeze, don’t rub – When towel drying your hair, resist rubbing or creating any sort of friction

  2. I had really frizzy and wavy hair and I used to flat iron it all the time which was a huge pain. Two months ago I got my hair japanese straightened, and it is soooo much more manageable!! I can’t believe how soft and straight my hair is now!

  3. Why dont u try using Coconut oil. Just rub some onto your palm and apply it down the length of your hair, straightening it out in turn. This will not only straighten your hair over time, but will also spplement all the essential nutrients to the hair shaft and help your hair grow strong and healthy!! Its much better than using harmful products and chemical-based straighteners!
