The 3 Types of Frizz (How to Control the Chaos) – Eufora International

3 Types of FRIZZ

(and How to Control the Chaos)

Frizz is one of the most universal problems for all hair types, textures, lengths, and styles, but not all frizz is created equal! Different types of frizz need different solutions but it doesn't have to be difficult! We’ve identified 3 main types of frizz and the recommended prescription to help you control the chaos and show up beautifully. 

Psst: If you’re a curly girl fighting that “fuzzy” frizz we have an entire section just for you! Check out Eufora’s 9 Rules to Beautiful, Frizz-Free Curls

TYPE 1: Topical Frizz

No not “tropical” - although added humidity never helps! Topical frizz is one of the more common types of frizz for straight or slightly wavy hair. When the top or outer layer of your hair starts to “frizz-out” to create classic flyaways or an all around static-like look that needs to be tamed down for a smoother, sleeker, controlled style. 

The Topical Frizz Fighting Prescription

Since the main culprits of frizz are dryness and damage, keeping your hair hydrated, healthy, and protected is always the right path. Styling products to help seal the cuticle and lock out humidity without adding weight will help you achieve a smooth, frizz-free style. 

1. Repair and Strengthen with the right leave-in treatment

Need daily hydration and frizz control? Use Nourish Leave-In Hydration

Repairing damage from overprocessing? Use Beautifying Elixirs Leave-In Repair Treatment or ElixirONE 

2. Obsess Over Oils 

The right oil can provide exceptional moisture, softness, and shine while helping to seal the cuticle and lock in moisture. Smooth’n Oil Therapy is the ultimate frizz fighting oil designed to nourish and protect the cuticle. 

3. Style and Finish 

Tame that frizz and make those pesky flyaways behave. These anti-humdity, frizz fighting styling and finishing products that lock in moisture, block out humidity, and leave your hair shiny and smooth.

- The lightweight styling cream, Behave, is a stylist favorite that works to control any style without adding weight or a “product feel” to the hair. 

- Pure Polish is a finishing gloss designed to control frizz and flyaways while adding exceptional shine and softness without a greasy feel

- Tame is a frizz and humidity controlling finishing spray that is flexible, brushable, and provides a light hold while leaving the hair touchably soft.


TYPE 2: Damaged and Frayed Frizz

If you’re experiencing frizz near the ends of your hair, you’re most likely suffering from dehydration, damage, and brittle ends. This is typically a result from hot tool abuse or damage from chemical services. It’s time for a protective and restorative regimen.

The Damaged and Frayed Ends Frizz Prescription

Keep your hair healthy with reparative and protective products to maintain gorgeously smooth and frizz free ends. Those split ends can travel up the hair shaft creating more damage along the way. Getting a trim every 5-7 weeks is an easy way to maintain hair health and prevent frazzled, split ends.

1. Repair 

Use the protein restructuring Fortifi Keratin Repair to help even out the porosity and repair the outer cuticle layer of the hair.

2. Seal 

Use Oil Therapy for a powerful dose of antioxidant rich oils to moisturize, nourish, and seal the cuticle.

3. Protect

Use heat protectant products like EuforaStyle Thermal Defense Prep and Retain to prevent damage from hot tool irons and blow dryers up to 428 ᐤF.

TYPE 3: Expanded, Multi-Layered Frizz

There is no mistaking this type of frizz and if you have it… you most likely spend a lot of time trying to control this chaos (and have probably considered chemical straightening services). Often described as “poufy” - this type of frizz happens throughout the entire head of hair as multiple patterns of curly, wavy, and straight sections expand into different directions.

The Expanded, Multi-Layered Frizz Prescription

This type of hair is a perfect candidate for the Eufora Smooth’n Regimen. A complete collection to dramatically transform unruly, frizzy hair. Products work synergistically to strengthen and protect the hair while providing exceptional moisture, shine, smoothing, and de-frizzing benefits. The Smooth’n Oil Complex and Soy Bean Phospholipid technology leaves the hair velvety smooth, silky, and shiny. This technology works progressively, meaning you’ll have a layering of its amazing effects with each use.
