Read on to know some home remedies for frizzy hair:
1. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a sure-shot remedy to calm unruly hair – high levels of acidity in the potion work to smooth out frizz and imbue a healthy shine, while Alpha hydroxy and Vitamins B & C exfoliate the scalp. Just dilute a couple of drops of ACV in water and pour it over your hair when you’re done shampooing and conditioning. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes before you rinse it out, and silkier hair is yours to claim.
Great in your guac but better in your locks, avocado contains Vitamin C and tons of hydrating fatty acids that do wonders for the health of your hair. The essential component that’ll help you on a Frizzy Friday though, is Vitamin E, which the fleshy fruit contains in scores. Just create a paste with a ripe avocado and some olive oil and use it as a mask. Keep it on for 30 minutes every twice a week for a much calmer head of hair.
Rich in natural oils, carbs, vitamins and potassium, bananas are super for stressed, damaged or frizzy hair. A natural conditioner, its combination of nutrients retain moisture, working to soften your hair and make it more lustrous. If you have split ends, it works to seal them off too. Just mash a ripe banana in a fourth of yogurt and mix in two tablespoons of honey and olive oil. Keep it on for 30 minutes before you shampoo for banana-beautiful hair.
Ever heard of using a mug of beer for your mop? Well, now you have, and let us tell you – it isn’t just an old lady’s (t)ale! Its powerful composition of proteins and B vitamins work to soften and hydrate your hair. Have some leftover from your last party? Pour it into a bowl and let it decarbonate overnight until it’s flat. Then wash your hair with shampoo, replacing your conditioner with a steady stream of beer and washing it out with cold water. Do it once in two weeks to keep your hair well behaved.
5. Argan Oil
We’ve all OD-ed on coconut oil but Argan Oil is as powerful (and way less smelly!) a potion for unruly curls. Packed with essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and Vitamins A and C, its works like a chemical-free hair spa treatment, giving your hair 360-degree nutrition that leaves it looking lush and shiny. To get maximum results, use it as a hair mask, massaging your scalp and tips generously. Wrap your head in a towel and wash it off the next day. You might want to cancel that hair appointment too.
