Dry and brittle hair is a common haircare concern for South African women, but just as big a headache is related frizziness – especially in summer. Natural African hair is very susceptible to losing its sleekness as the tightness of the coils means that nourishing natural scalp oil struggles to travel the full length of strands.


While healthy hairs have a smooth outer cuticle layer, dried-out hairs have raised cuticle scales which tangle and catch on everything – hence the wild, windswept look. Fortunately, there are ways to restore the sleekness.


First, you can make a few adjustments to your haircare routine, like using nourishing shampoos and not washing your hair too frequently. Once a week is a good average to bear in mind. But what about when you get to the end of your wash-and-dry routine, or you’re out and about, and the frizziness strikes? These frizz fighters have you covered.

Mizani 25 Miracle Milk is a versatile leave-in hair treatment that comes in a handy spray format. Infused with strengthening Xylose and natural conditioning coconut oil, it has 25 different haircare benefits including anti-frizz properties – restoring silky-softness, controlling irritating fly-aways and sealing the cuticle. Best of all, you can use it on all hair types, including relaxed and coloured hair. Pick up this professional-standard product from your nearest salon.

Also from Mizani is new Mizani Thermasmooth Shine Extend. This finishing spray helps to lock in your style, and shield your hair against the effects of humidity and heat in general. Specially designed to fit into your on-the-go-lifestyle, this spritz benefits from a combination of coconut oil, ceramides and cationic polymers to keep your strands glossy, smooth and managed all day.

Finally, there’s Dark and Lovely AMLA Legend Oil of 7 Wonders. Frizzy, dry hair needs a lot of light nourishing, and this oil delivers – helping to leave hair shiny, stronger, smoothed and more manageable. As an oil, this isn’t the easiest product to lug around with you all day and quickly apply, but it’s a great addition to the end of your washday routine. Use to enhance health and control.
