Frizzy hair is a common complaint for anyone with natural curls or waves. High humidity, dry hair and damage can all contribute to frizz. While expensive salon treatments can temporarily treat your frizzy locks, you can get better hair at home. Change your hair care routine to bring frizz under control without spending all your time drying or flat ironing your hair. Choosing Products Home treatments for frizzy hair include changes in your washing routine, different hair products and deep conditioning treatments. Choose products designed for dry or curly hair, selecting those with emollients to moisturize your hair, humectants to help your hair absorb moisture and protein to smooth the hair shaft. Naturally curly hair is quite often dry and can be more fragile than straight hair, according to NaturallyCurly.com. Typical hair care routines and products may make frizz worse, rather than better. Wash Correctly Many curly hair experts, including Lorraine Massey and Deborah Chiel, authors of the book "Curly Girl," recommend you reduce or eliminate your use of shampoo to keep your curls at their best. Replace your shampoo with a light, sulfate- and silicone-free conditioner. Work the conditioner gently into your scalp, rinse and follow with a heavier conditioner, if desired. Changing your washing routine may dramatically reduce frizz and make your curls more manageable. Add Shine Many frizz smoothing products on the market contain silicone. While silicone may smooth the shaft of the hair and enhance shine, it can weigh down your curls and be difficult to wash away. Consider replacing silicone-based shine enhancers with a small amount of coconut oil. Liquefy the oil between your palms and rub into the ends of your hair, suggests Candida-Cure-Recipes.com. As an alternative to coconut oil, try all natural shea butter. Special Care When you have more time available to care for your hair, take time for a homemade deep conditioning or protein treatment, recommends (link removed). Olive oil or coconut oil are ideal for dry hair, but you may want to try mayonnaise or an olive oil and egg treatment for damaged curls. Work the homemade conditioner into your hair and cover with a plastic shower cap. Leave in place for 15 minutes to one hour, then wash out over the sink or tub. Take time for a deeper treatment like this as often as once a week to reduce frizz. Safe Styling Changing your styling methods can also keep frizz at bay. Use a gentle, alcohol-free gel on your curls. Avoid rubbing the hair with a towel. Try gently piling your curls on top of your head and wrapping with a soft T-shirt rather than using a towel. Detangle gently with a wide-tooth comb or your fingers, then work a generous amount of gel through your hair. After you scrunch product through your hair, allow it to air dry, keeping your hands out of your hair to prevent frizz, suggests NaturallyCurly.com.
Hi everybody! My hair is naturally frizzy and it looks really ugly if I don't straighten it.. on humid days I sometimes straighten my hair twice because I just can't stand to see it fly all over the place. Thing is, I'm tired of spending so much time, and I've tried all sorts of conditioners. My hair just gets more "shiny" but it doesn't help with the frizziness.. I've seen online that for my type of hair, I should get argan oil.. is that true? All that stuff is super expensive (for me at least) and I wanna make sure I get something that really works. Also, I've seen this on facebook http://hairbrushstraightener.com and it seems like it wouldn't really work for me (I mean, the girl in the video seems to have pretty straight hair naturally..) Has anybody tried it? I can post pics of my unstraightened hair if need be.. Thanks a lot! Erika
Hello guys. I I found an interesting ebook about how to make your flaxseed hair gel for your curly frizzy hair right at home. It's a tutorial and the instructions are easy to follow. Ever since I discovered this, I don't even use conditioner anymore! Here's the download link: http://downloadurfile.com/flaxseed-gel-for-curly-hair
