5 Frizz-Free Tips for Washing, Drying and Styling Your Red Hair

Posted on

Updated: September 1st, 2023

Redheads typically have coarse, frizzy hair. Whether your hair is bone straight or naturally curly, it’s always good to know if you’re doing something wrong to cause more frizz –– like using products with way too many chemicals or towel drying your hair. We spoke with celebrity hairstylist, Bill Murphy.

“For too long we’ve taken for granted that products can ‘correct’ every hair and skin issue or imperfection. But more people are starting to realize that the chemicals present in these products may lead to long-term damage to your hair, skin, body and even the environment,” says Murphy. “Sulfates, for instance, corrosively strip hair and skin of essential moisture. Redheads should look for not only esthetic ingredients but also medicinal ingredients.”

Aside from keeping products sulfate-free, Murphy has 5 more frizz-free tips for washing, drying and styling your red hair:

1. Brushing

If you need to comb your wet hair, do so with wet fingers. Using a brush will create breakage and knots.

2. Drying

After washing, reduce frizz by drying your hair with a cotton t-shirt instead of a towel. A towel’s texture can cause a ton of friction –– which disrupts the cuticle and creates frizz. The flat surface of cotton t-shirts absorbs water without causing friction.

We also love microfiber towels. Aquis Hair Towel protects our red hair’s natural integrity while also cutting drying time in half.

3. Caring

Make sure to squeeze your hair (do not rub) while drying. Apply a no-frizz styling product like Virtue Labs Virtue Polish Unfrizz Cream.

4. Applying Heat

If you’re applying heat to your red locks, make sure to blow-dry on a medium to cool setting to close the cuticles and avoid frizzing.

5. After Care

Make sure to keep hair moisturized with a post-styling product like Agadir Argan Oil Hair Treatment. Apply a pea-size amount to your ends –– avoiding the root area.

If you are looking for a way to keep your red hair shiny and healthy, look no further:
