What makes frizzy hair frizzy is the lack of moisture. The hair shafts become rough, dry and lumpy. Other factors which contribute to the frizz are chlorinated water, blow dryer, straightening, certain chemicals in hair products, not following a good hair care ritual etc. When you use the wrong hair products without seeing whether the suit your hair type or not, you might end up with frizzy and untamed hair.

In today’s post, we will give you the most practical guide for damaged and frizzy hair treatment at home. We will tell you about the natural ingredients you can use to treat your hair; treatments that are easily available and doable, cheap and yet extremely effective.

Before getting to the treatments, we would like to tell you about a few habits that you need to change to treat your frizzy hair faster.

1. Moisturize during your shower 

Frizzy hair occurs when your hair is dry; and hence, you need to moisturize it better to treat the frizz. Turn your boring showers into an intense hair moisturizing session. All you need is to invest in shampoos and conditioners which are formulated with hydrating ingredients. On the contrary, stay as far away as possible from formulas that contain sulfate since the will only contribute to making your hair further dry and frizzy.

According to hair stylists all over the globe, the best hair products to buy are those that contain silicone, Argon oil, Avocado oil, Coconut oil, and Sebacic acid.

2. Less heat = Less frizz

Dueñas tells Elle,

“Laying off the heat is never a bad idea. The reason your hair gets frizz is from lack of moisture. Your hair spreads itself out and takes up more surface area with frizz, to expand its reach into the atmosphere and gather moisture. The more moisture your hair has, the less frizz you will have. So, if you use less heat, your hair will retain more of its natural moisture, thus, less frizz!”

3. If you can’t quit the heat, go Ionic.

Acording to the hair stylist, Dueñas to Elle magazine,

“Ionic heat tools help your hair lay smoother and or dry faster. An Ionic blow dryer that I like to use is the Conair 3Q, It helps break up the water molecules into smaller clusters, therefore, drying your hair faster with less heat. Your hair is positively charged, so using the negative charges of an ionic tool, say for straightening, help reverse your hair, and help it lay down smoother.”

4. Maintain a balance when it comes to washing your hair

Washing your hair with water is good, but shampooing it more than twice a week can wreak havoc on the quality of your tresses. When you use chemicals on your hair, these strip it of its natural oils and moisture, making them look dull and frizzy.

Again, washing only once in two weeks or twice in two weeks can make your hair look flat by causing build-up of dirt and grease. So you need to know the right balance. Moderation is the word.

5. Use silk pillowcases

To fight the frizz, you need to make sure you sleep on silk pillowcases. For better protection, tie your hair into a braid and cover it with a shower cap while sleeping. Cotton pillowcases are a bad idea because the material, much like Velcro, latches on to your tresses causing them to break, become brittle and frizzy.

6. Go no farther than the kitchen to find the treatment

The  benefits of castor oil, coconut oil, bananas and avocados on hair is well-known, right? Then why not make use of these ingredients that are sitting unutilized in your kitchen cabinet right now!?

In the next section, we will tell you all about how to add shine and fight the frizz in your hair will natural remedies.

First on our list, we have carbonated water which treats frizzy hair in no time. You can try club soda, soda water or sparkling water for the treatment.

Since carbonated water is prepared using pressure that dissolves the CO2 gas in water, it helps reduce the pH levels of the hair, which in turn, reduces the frizz in the hair.

Use the water for your final rinse after shampoo.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Next up we have apple cider vinegar which prevents frizzy hair and treats it effectively. The vinegar smooths the hair, and makes it look shinier than before.

For the treatment, dilute the apple cider vinegar with water in the ratio of 1:1 and then use it for the final rinse after you have shampooed your hair. This treatment automatically reduces the frizz in two weeks’ time.

3. Beer
