Frizzy hair isn’t the biggest problem in the world, but we all know how annoying it can be when you spent ages doing your hair and then it just frizzes up because the weather is particularly humid that day. Sure you could use mousses and hairspray the hell out of it to keep the hairstyle in check, but is it good for your hair in the long run? Probably not. There’s no way putting all those chemicals on your hair can be good for you. But you have other options, natural ones, that work even better without damaging your hair. So if you want to tame the frizz yet keep your hair healthy – try some of these natural ways to get rid of frizzy hair.
1. Sparkling water
One of the easiest and no fuss methods to tame the frizziness of your hair is to rinse it with sparkling water. Any carbonated water will do, but you know, stay away from sweet sodas like coke unless you want a sticky mess instead of a frizzy one. We’re not sure how this works, but apparently it has something to do with PH levels of water and carbonated water has a lower PH level and that’s good for you hair. Just wash your hair as per usual and in the end rinse with some carbonated water. Do this every time you wash your hair and you should see an improvement.
2. Coconut Milk
Another cool way you can deal with frizz while getting bing your hair a nice treatment is with coconut milk. Just take half a cup of coconut milk and warm it up slightly in the microwave. It should be warm, not hot. Massage it into your hair, cover with shower cap and leave overnight. While you sleep the coconut milk will works its magic and moisturize your hair while also working as a protein treatment. Wash your hair in the morning as per usual and leave it to air dry.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is like the holy grail of hair treatments. Not only will it take the frizz but it’ll also make your hair look super sleek and shiny. All you have to do is mix equal parts water and apple cider vinegar and rinse your hair with it. You’ll see the results immediately.
4. Lemon and Honey
These two ingredients are common household items, so you probably won’t even have to leave your home to try this method of dealing with the frizz. Just take two tablespoons of lemon and two tablespoons of honey, mix them with 1 cup of water. Put this mask on wet hair, cover the whole length but don’t touch the roots. Leave on for 15 minutes and then wash off with shampoo. Your hair would feel lovely and moisturized after this hair mask.
5. Olive Oil
That’s right, good old olive oil is great for your hair too. Just take a couple of tablespoons of olive oil or however much you need to saturate your hair length, warm it up slightly and massage into your hair. Make sure all of it is coated, especially the ends. Massage it into your scalp too. Cover with a shower cap and leave on for at least 40 minutes. You can even leave it overnight. Afterwards wash and condition as per usual. You can do this treatment every week for best results.
I know using an avocado for anything else instead of eating it might seem like a waster but this is worth it. Avocado is full of vitamin E which helps to tame the frizzy hair and it’s also full of fatty acid that helps keep your hair shiny and soft. Just mash a ripe avocado and mix it with half a teaspoon of olive oil. Put it all over your freshly washed hair and leave for 30 minutes. Wash it out with cold water and condition afterwards.
