I often use home remedies for frizzy hair because store bought products often make hair more brittle. Natural hair remedies can add healthy oils without the added alcohol to create shiny, frizz-free hair.
Dry, frizzy hair can be caused by a variety of factors. Bleaching and dying are common causes. Brittle texture in hair can also be attributed to over use of curling irons, hair straighteners, chemical relaxers, and rollers.
If you have curly frizzy hair, it may also likely be attributed to your genetics. Many people with naturally curly hair also have natural frizz that won't go away on its own.
Taming frizzy hair may seem nearly impossible, especially when you've tried almost everything.
If you've already stopped dying and bleaching and have reduced exposure to heat and light, there is something else you can try.
I have found that an at-home hot oil treatment can improve the condition of your hair a lot! Wavy, frizzy hair needs nothing more than some really good moisturizing, and this method will certainly do the trick.
Begin by heating up one cup of olive oil in a glass jar. The temperature should be nice and warm, not too hot or too cool.
Apply this mixture throughout all of your hair, evenly distributing it. Then, pin your hair loosely on top of your head with a clip, and cover with a shower cap.
Wrap a hot towel around your head to increase moisture absorption. Put on a new hot towel every ten minutes. Rotate three times, and then shampoo and rinse your hair.
If you have extremely dry hair, do this process twice per week until you notice good results, and then reduce to one time per week. This method has always given me great results, especially when my hair is very dry and brittle!
One of the best home remedies for frizzy hair is apple cider vinegar, strangely enough. It can be used as an after shampoo rinse, and it is also known for adding a lot of shine to your hair.
How does it do this? Apple cider vinegar a low pH (it is acidic), and as it rinses through your wet hair, the acidity will help to close the cuticle. Once the cuticle is closed, your hair will retain moisture better, will be shinier, and will become a bit more elastic (less breakage).
Shampoo and rinse your hair thoroughly. Then, mix one part water and one part apple cider vinegar and apply to your hair as the final rinse.
