I have dry frizzy hair.
Not only do I have frizzy hair I also live in Florida where the humidity is like 900% most days. I choose natural treatments over the chemical filled products that line the drug store and salon shelves to help tame my mane. Are you ready to tackle and smooth your frizzy hair naturally? If so, I have great news….you probably already have most (if not all) of the items needed your kitchen.
I have five ways that I would like to share with you to help turn your frizzy hair into a smooth moisturized hair using items that you already have in your kitchen. I use various treatments on my hair, they often depend on what I have available at the time. Making your own frizzy hair treatments is easy and will save you a ton of money.
Here are a few of my favorite homemade natural frizzy hair treatments:
I use the No ‘Poo Method to cleanse my hair and love the result of the apple cider vinegar rinse. The acidity of apple cider vinegar does wonders to smooth frizzy hair and give it a beautiful and healthy shine. This is a super easy treatment. After you rinse out your shampoo pour apple cider vinegar over your hair covering it all. Let it sit for about one minute then rinse with cool water. If you desire you can condition your hair as you normally would.
Egg whites contain enzymes that remove unwanted oils and kill bacteria. The the olive oil locks the moisture into your hair. All you need to do is beat up 1 or 2 eggs (I use 2 as I have longer hair) then add half a cup of virgin olive oil and mix them together. Apply this mixture to your hair and let is sit on your hair for 30 minutes prior to rinsing and washing. I often wear a cap to contain any mess.
If you know me you know that I love coconut oil. When my hair is feeling super dry and frizzy I take a small amount and rub it into my hair. My husband laughed at me today as I was making a smoothie, I spilled a bit of coconut oil and quickly scooped it up and rubbed it on my face an in my hair. Coconut oil works great, it is super hydrating and it smells delicious!
Honey smooths the cuticle and leaves the hair looking and feeling soft and shiny. Mix equal parts honey and water in a bowl and apply it to damp hair after you shampoo. Try to avoid the scalp and make sure that the ends are well coated. Leave the honey mixture on your hair for 30 minutes then was it out.
Avocado and Olive Oil
This is one of my favorites. I use this one often and it helps that a friend of mine has an avocado tree! Both olive oil and avocado have hydrating benefits, and the fatty acids in the avocado help to tame the frizzies. Use a fork and mash-up the avocado then add a splash of olive oil and whisk them together (this is a good time to make some homemade guacamole too!). Apply the mask to your hair after you rinse out the shampoo. Cover your hair and leave in for 45 minutes to an hour then rinse. You will LOVE how your hair feels after this!
Sorry if I left you hungry but I hoped I inspired you to head to the kitchen and whip some yumminess to spread on your frizzy mane! If you have any other natural tips on how to tame frizzy hair naturally it would be awesome if you left it in the comments…..
