What makes avocado oils so good for curly hair is that they easily penetrate to the core and provide the scalp the moisture it has lost. These oils contains an amazingly high concentration of monounsaturated fatty acid and vitamin E, both of which improve the moisture retention capacity of the hair, prevent photo-aging, and improve the growth of hair.

  1. Shea butter oil

The next magic ingredient on our list today is shea butter oil. She butter contains the goodness of fatty acids, vitamin E as well as vitamin F. These nutrients offer an emollient property to shea butter, which helps soothe and soften the curly hair when used as a daily conditioner/moisturizer.

Shea butter oil can also be used as a natural hair mask. It gives an intense conditioning treatment to the frizzy, dry locks that need to be repaired. This also prevents further breakage. It makes your locks more lustrous than ever.

Heated olive oil ca be used to condition curly hair. To be honest, nothing can ever beat a hot oil massage when it comes to treating your damaged curls. The olive oil will help prevent the frizz and will return the stripped moisture to the scalp and the hair shafts. If olive oil is not your oil of choice, then you can also go for other carrier oils like coconut oil, almond oil or castor oil.

For the treatment, heat the oil for about 1 minutes, and then apply this warm and soothing oil on your scalp. You need to massage the scalp gently for five minutes or so, and then move on to your hair shafts. Go from the root to the hair tips. You need to leave the oil on for 30 minutes, during which you can tie your hair in a braid and cover it with a shower cap to allow intense conditioning.

After 30 minutes, wash your hair with your regular shampoo, and then condition it. This treatment should be repeated three times a week.

What makes curly hair frizzy is the loss of moisture from the hair. This moisture can be supplied to your hair by eggs, which form one of the best natural treatments for luster-less dull curly hair. Eggs are a rich source of proteins and the fat in the yolk will help you enhance the health of your unmanageable locks in no time.

For the conditioner, you need to whisk an egg. Add to the mix half a tablespoon of olive oil and one and a half tablespoon of mayonnaise. Now apply this mask on your curls and leave it on for 30 minutes. Wash your hair with cold water.

The alternative treatment that you can try requires you to beat an egg with three tablespoons of olive oil and a quarter of a cup of pureed cucumber. Now apply this on your scalp and your hair shafts. Leave the conditioner on for 10 minutes, and then using your regular shampoo, wash your hair.

  1. Carbonated water

The next treatment on our list is carbonated water. It not only helps lower the frizz, but also gives your curl more definition. The water’s pH level is very low, and as such it clarifies your hair and makes it more lustrous than before. You can also expect your hair to become way softer than what it was.

Begin by diluting the carbonated water with some sparkling water in the ratio of 1:1. Make sure the sparkling water isn’t flavored. Now after your shampoo, use this mix for the last rinse. Air dry your hair.

  1. Honey

To prepare the condition you need to mix your raw honey with some extra-virgin edible olive oil. Mix the two ingredients in the ratio of 1:1. You may also use some other carrier oil in place of olive oil. Now apply this conditioner on your hair and leave it on for 30 to 40 minutes. Finally wash your hair with a mild shampoo.
