Is there a problem: how to know if you have unruly hair
Before we talk about what to do and from which side to approach unruly hair, we suggest taking a short test and finding out if you really have such hair.
Check the items you agree with.
- curly or curly (porous);
- do not keep styling;
- stick out in all directions and push;
- prone to electrification;
- devoid of natural shine;
If five or more points are about you, it’s time to arm yourself with the knowledge of our experts.
Stylist and creative partner Kérastase Irina Egorova notes that eight out of ten women characterize their hair as naughty, often confusing the type (which is given by nature once and for all) and the temporary condition of the hair.
“First of all, unruly hair is dry hair, which is why a tendency to accumulate static electricity, frizz and other problems appear. Wavy and curly strands are especially bad at retaining moisture, so they need to be regularly moisturized and nourished. Their nature cannot be changed, but with proper care they look very impressive and do not cause inconvenience. But straight hair can also become unruly due to weather conditions, neglect of thermal protection when styling, or for other reasons. In this case, you should adhere to the same care recommendations that are relevant for naturally porous hair. ”
Reasons for a riot, or why hair gets unruly
Experts name the following among the main reasons:
- Improper care.
- Aggressive environmental impact.
- Fanatical fascination with styling appliances and their misuse.
- Malnutrition with a lack of vitamins, proteins and unsaturated fatty acids.

Frizz Dismiss Anti-Static Oil Spray
Both sprays are designed to discipline unruly hair, but they work a little differently. In a yellow bottle – light oil with an antistatic effect. It moisturizes, removes electrification (oh, those hats!), Protects against negative environmental influences and guarantees neat styling. The red bottle will smooth out, straighten hair and prevent it from frizzing and curling in high humidity conditions.
Salon care rushes to the rescue
The best solution for unmanageable hair from professionals is keratin straightening. But, as it turned out, thoughtlessly deciding on this procedure is also not worth it.
“Filling the porous hair structure with keratin gives the strands perfect smoothness and healthy shine. But this procedure is indicated only and exclusively for owners of unruly porous hair. If you have them just dryish and slightly fluffy, it is better to refuse keratin in favor of salon care on the recommendation of your master. ”
