Frizzy Hairs are the hair strands that stand out or curl in different directions causing lumpy and messy hair. It is mainly because of 4 factors as given below:
- Genetic- A person with naturally dry hair has frizzy formation due to loss of moisture from the hair causes frizz.
- Environmental- Excess moisture is a well-documented cause of frizz. But both the above evidence is contrary, which shows that the individualized understanding of the problem is very critical followed by individualized holistic solutions.
- Hair therapy Induced- research evidence highlights that common treatment of frizzy hair itself is a cause of frizzy hairs, which seems like a vicious cycle, Sulphate containing shampoos, alcohols containing products all of which are damaging to the outer protective layers of hair.
- Diameter – larger the diameter of hair more the frizz due to the greater area for cuticle damage and ionic exchange.
Frizzy hair occurs due to damage to the outer layers of the hair, which impairs the ability for moisture fixation within the hair. It has been suggested that long, frizzy hairs could be a warning sign for Alopecia. In some instances, the hairs are incapable of retaining moisture, whereas in other cases, damaged membranes lead to the excessive retention of water molecules.
Long-term risks- According to a published study Frizzy hairs could be a warning sign for Alopecia.

Glucosides are good surfactants along with hair conditioning and emulsion stabilization. Natural oils containing Lauric acid, Oleic acid, and Myristic acid prevent the formation of split ends.
Natural oils also provide controlled lipid absorption which is the key to anti-Frizz technology. Phyto Components -Apigenin, Lignans, Beta-sitosterol, Gallic acid, Ellagic acid, Oleic Acid present in the herbs like Bramhi and Bhringaraj prevent Hair Loss & Restart Hair Growth.
Phytonutrients like Vit C, Vit E, Biotin, Vit A, Amino acids, Omega 3 fatty Acids, Minerals, and Glycosides are present in Amla which helps Keratinocytes to produce keratin protein, which is necessary for healthy cortex and cuticle formation, which does not allow the formation of frizz.
Phyto Components like saponins and tannins present in Methi help in the binding of hair reducing friction. Reduced friction results in reduced shearing force and less chance of frizz formation.
