Home Remedies For Frizzy Hair

There is a famous saying “The beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”; many times we become this beholder for ourselves.  We must admit that we are our best critic. Hair attributes a lot to our looks; also it is a reflection of our internal health.

What is Frizzy Hair?

Wavy hair that gets unmanageable, especially in hot and humid weather due to an insufficient amount of water and moisture in the hair.

The outer layer of the hair, i.e. the cuticle layer gets roughened making the hair more porous, and hence it starts absorbing the extra moisture in the air which causes the air shaft to over expand, cuticle layers to stand out and fizz.

Frizzy hair is dry, dull and lifeless hair irrespective of the type of hair, i.e. curly or straight. Contrary to the popular belief, not only curly hair but even the straight hair gets frizzy.

  1. i have very damaged dry hair i have bangs that have not grown in years. when i flat iron my hair it is very dry dont know what to do anymore. can you please help me.

    • Rosie: Have you tried deep conditioning your hair?
      I use to have very brittle and damaged hair from flat ironing my hair everyday and colouring it. I changed all the products that I was using. you have to remember a lot of the products youd find in the drug stores are not as great as youd like to think. invest into better products.
      Once You deep condition your hair, youll see a difference. You can go to the salon, or buy the products yourself or make them.
      When you flat iron your hair do you use heat protectant? The ones in the drug stores tend to have more alcohol in it, so dont buy those!
      Give your hair a break sometimes, dont always flat iron. 🙂

  2. Hi,there

    I am so frustrated with my frizzy hair,since my thyroid started giving problems my hair started going frizzy. I had beautiful long dark hair and had to cut it shoulder length 2 months ago, I am heart broken. It was just to frizzy and dry and I looked like the Lion King. The condition has improved but its very frizzy and I hate my hair. I am getting married at the end of the year and my worry is my hair,how sad!!!!

  3. I had beautiful long black dark& shiney hair. I had to cut it one year ago after that my hair is so frizzy and dry and hair fall also I don’t know why? Pls tell me for use best shapoo and conditioner

  4. I’m a stylist who has and works with coarse hair. The best treatment for this type of hair including frizzy hair are castor, olive, coconut, and deep conditioning. These oils with a deep condition once or twice a week will help hair to become softer, healthier, shinier, and easier to manage. The best way to use these oils are to add them to the shampoo of you choice. Make sure to use shampoos without sulfate and made for frizzy or coarse hair. Also you may heat the oils with equal parts water, massage into hair, cover hair with a plastic or heating cap for 20 mins. Rinse, use a leave-in conditioner, and style.
