Hair that is naturally curly can become frizzy during monsoons, due to excess moisture in the air. Dry hair is porous and absorbs moisture from the air. This makes the hair swell up and become curly and frizzy. Apart from hereditary factors, hair that has been repeatedly coloured, dyed, permed or bleached can become frizzy.
So, how can you control that frizz?
First of all, use a mild shampoo—as little as possible and rinse well with water. After shampoo, apply a creamy conditioner, massaging it lightly into the hair. Leave it on for two minutes and rinse off with plain water. Don’t wash off all the conditioner—remember to leave a little on your hair, to make it soft and smooth. You can follow this up with a hair serum.
Take two drops of a light vegetable oil, like sunflower oil. Put it on your palms and rub them together sligthly, so as to spread the oil. Smooth your palms over your hair—et voila!
Spray on some conditioner
Mix some water with a creamy hair conditioner and put it in a spray bottle. Mix well and spray the mixture on your hair. Then comb your hair, so that the mixture spreads through evenly.
Give this DIY deep conditioner a shot
Make a deep conditioning treatment at home and use it at least once a week, before shampooing. Mix together one egg, one tablespoon castor oil, lemon juice, and one teaspoon of pure glycerin. Apply it on your hair and keep it for an hour.
Don’t ignore hot oil treatments
Hot oil treatments help the hair to absorb the oil better. Once or twice a week heat pure coconut oil and apply it on the scalp and hair. Then dip a towel in hot water, squeeze out the water, and wrap the hot towel around your head, like a turban. Keep it on for five minutes. Repeat the hot towel wrap three to four times.
Mix one egg, one tablespoon of mayonnaise, and one teaspoon of olive oil together. Apply the paste on your hair. Leave it on for half an hour and then wash it off.
