TikTok’s “hair flossing” hack: Does it really work?

Hair flossing has recently become a trend on TikTok, and its unconventional and slightly ridiculous method of taming flyaways has piqued the interest of many, with videos on it gaining millions of views.

This hack involves using a piece of dental floss to slide down your hair shaft and the concept is that the floss will act as a smoothing tool to help distribute your natural hair oil, making your hair appear sleeker.

While hair flossing sounds plenty innovative and is definitely a wallet-friendly way to smooth out your frizz, it’s not something that we’d recommend.

Firstly, pulling the floss along your hair can lead to breakage and if done with excessive force or frequency, this can lead to split ends or the weakening of your hair.

The effectiveness of hair flossing is also not backed up by science, and there is limited research to show that this method really works to improve your hair health or reduce frizziness. Last but not certainly not the least, hair flossing is simply too time-consuming and cumbersome!

One Daily Vanity member also tried hair flossing and discovered that, while it did tame her hair frizz, she had to use a lot of force, which would have resulted in long-term damage and breakage.

Her final verdict on hair flossing? “I think it could be a quick solution to reduce frizziness, but the effects were definitely not long-lasting,” she said, and she considered it more of a fun gimmick than an actual hair care hack.

Alternative ways to tame your frizzy hair

Now that we’ve established that hair flossing isn’t the best way to tame your frizz, let’s also take a look at some of the most popular DIY hair care solutions in the market.

Hair oiling and masking

Hair oiling entails applying nourishing oils to the scalp and hair in order to moisturise and tame pesky flyaways.

While it’s endorsed by many beauty gurus on TikTok like @tessapeay, it can only provide temporary relief from frizziness. Excessive hair oiling, particularly on the scalp, can also cause greasiness, making your hair appear flat and lifeless.

The same goes for deep-conditioning treatments, which are not only time-consuming, but can also lead to product buildup that makes your hair dull and heavy-looking

While they may be a little pricier, salon treatments can actually save you more money in the long run because, unlike DIY fixes, salon treatments tend to have immediate, long-lasting results.

This saves you from buying a million products in the hopes of finding something that works, making it more cost-efficient in the long run.

Amongst these treatments, hair botox has gained traction in recent years for its unique ability to provide long-lasting results without the use of harsh chemicals that leave your hair fried and fragile.

While the term “Botox” may sound frightening, it is actually a gentle deep conditioning treatment that acts as a “filler” for your hair cuticles, smoothing out imperfections and replenishing them from within.

As a result, for a few months, your hair becomes healthier, shinier, and less prone to frizz, making it the ultimate fuss-free and non-damaging solution.

What’s even better than hair Botox

As amazing as hair Botox is, YANN BEYRIE PARIS took it a step further by using only 100% natural ingredients, as opposed to standard anti-frizz treatment , which uses keratin to replenish your hair structure.

GENESIS by YANN BEYRIE PARIS involves treating your hair with a potent blend of aloe vera, violet flower, green tea, jojoba, argan oil, and caviar, all of which works together to deeply penetrate your hair shaft, providing essential nutrients and moisture with zero damage.

What truly distinguishes GENESIS is its ability to repair damages while maintaining the natural texture of your hair. Because there are no harsh chemicals or damaging ingredients like sulfates, parabens, formaldehyde and artificial colours, you can even choose to repeat the treatment after three months if you wish.

That’s not to say you’ll need to get this treatment every three months, because GENESIS isn’t just a quick fix; it provides long-term nourishment for your hair.

For four to six months, you’ll have healthier, well-nourished locks that look celebrity-worthy, making it a true investment for all!
