5 Expert-Approved Home Remedies For Dry And Frizzy Hair

Living with frizzy hair is a frustrating constant battle, especially for curly hair girls. You do your best to style your hair picture-perfect, just to find it in a nasty mess when you arrive at your date. It’s a commonplace to be and plenty of us, including straight hair girls, have been there.


Frizz is a call for moisture and nourishment. The porosity of your hair, protein levels, and even your living environment can dramatically impact the amount of moisture your hair needs. There are many ways you can manage it, starting with drinking sufficient water and eating right. Once you are on track, a little extra tender loving care is all it takes to tackle the frizzles. This doesn’t point you straight to expensive salon treatments. You can use these home remedies for dry and frizzy hair right under your roof.


Clarify Your Hair to Clear Build-up


While dryness often leads the frizz race, build-up is a runner-up. The accumulation of minerals such as iron and calcium from hard water can result in frizz. This layer of build-up forms a barrier, affecting your hair’s ability to absorb moisture. Combine two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and two cups of warm water and voila, you get a clarifying rinse. Use this rinse on damp hair followed by your regular hair wash routine once a month. If that sounds kind of pesky, a shampoo that helps to remove build-ups is a good alternative.


Steam Your Hair to Add Moisture


The outer layer of your hair resembles scales. Steaming your hair encourages the scales to open up, providing direct access for moisture. To steam your hair at home, apply a hair mask or conditioner to freshly washed hair. Wrap your hair with a shower cap or a hot damp towel. The hot steam will open the cuticle layer of your hair, allowing the penetration of moisture.


Apply Humectants to Seal in Hydration


If you have high porosity hair, moisture sneaks out of your hair shaft as easily as it gets absorbed. To salvage the hydration rituals that you have wholeheartedly accomplished, lock the moisture in with humectants. There are many natural humectants such as honey, aloe, and glycerin. If you are not a fan of possible stickiness and food aroma, opt for a light-fragrance pure silicone serum.


Brush Your Hair to Detangle


Hair myths might have told you to brush your hair 100 times every day for healthier manes. In fact, over-brushing your hair will lift your strand cuticles, making it vulnerable to breakage. However, that doesn’t mean you should skip it altogether. You should brush your hair when you need it with a quality hairbrush suitable for your hair type.


Pamper Your Hair with The Right Linens


Waking up to frizzy hair is not the most pleasant thing in the morning. If you have tried all means and you are still having frizzy hair and dryness, consider investing in a silk or satin pillowcase. Cotton pillowcase creates friction that can cause hair breakage, and also absorb the moisture from your hair. Besides being fabulous for your skin, silk is also a friction-free fabric that allows you to glide and turn freely while you snooze. Similarly, microfiber towels are preferable to traditional towels. Microfiber towels dry your hair effectively without causing excessive friction.


In a nutshell, the key to avoiding dry and frizzy hair is having adequate hydration and sealing in the moisture. Give your beloved manes a little attention and you will be on the right path towards healthy and shiny hair.
