5 Useful Home Remedies For Frizzy Hair

For people with thick curly or coarse hair, taming the frizzy mane is a nightmare. Especially when the weather is warm and humid, the small tight curls on your head absorb the moisture from the air and swell making your tresses look like a lion’s mane. Although you will come across a wide range of serums and sprays for eliminating frizzes, they contain chemicals that tend to damage your hair when used for a prolonged period. Fortunately, there are a number of simple yet effect natural remedies for frizzy hair. You can easily tame your frizzy hair with homemade deep conditioning hair masks and sprays that help in making your hair soft and smooth, thereby helping in eliminating the frizz.

The Following Home Remedies Can Help In Eliminating The Frizzes Without Damaging Your Hair:

1. Avocado

The high fat content makes avocado the ideal ingredient for a hair mask for frizzy hair. Take half an avocado and mash the pulp.[1] Cover your hair strands with the mashed fruit. Wait for about 15 minutes and then wash off with water. If the frizzy tresses are too dry, mix the mashed avocado with one to two tablespoons of a moisturizing ingredient such as mayonnaise, egg yolk or sour cream.


2. Coconut Oil

The easiest way to manage your frizzy hair is to take a small amount of coconut oil and evenly spread it on all your hair. Do not use too much oil as it will make your hair greasy.[2] You may even prepare a homemade anti-frizz spray with coconut oil for taming your tresses when they appear frizzy. Mix a tablespoon each of aloe vera juice and honey with a teaspoon of jojoba oil and ½ tablespoon of coconut oil. Spray the mixture on your hair and with your finger tips spread it through the length of your hair.
