When I was younger my step-mother made me dry my hair everyday and where it would frizz I straightened it, too. Now today it's frizzier than ever, and so I still dry it and straighten it almost everyday.
If I'm not doing that I'm putting mousse and hair spray in my hair to tame the frizz. Even when I let it dry naturally now it frizzes just as much. My hair used to be super curly and not frizzy at all. What can I do to get back my natural non frizzy hair?

I have stick straight heavy, coarse frizzy hair that I color at home. I think, but am not sure, that you want a conditioner for your frizzy hair. A very simple, but effective homemade recipe is to put mayonnaise on your hair. Use the real kind, not the low fat or no fat type.
Spread it all over your hair, wrap your hair in plastic wrap and keep it on for 30 minutes. Or keep it on longer. Then rinse it out of your hair very well. Let your hair air dry. Wash your hair the next day.
I've used this recipe before, But I don't straighten my hair so I don't know what your results will be. But I do know that this is a great conditioner. You might have to use it once or more per week until you get your desired results. Good luck! (02/02/2010)
I bought an Instyler with the thought that if it didn't work I would return it. It works great. I love it. I paid $99 for it in a local store, but you can go online and get 2 for the price of one from the website http://www.getinstyler.com/?TrackId=11475739andCustom=andSource=andtrackingid=11475739 and try it for $14.99. They send you 2 to try. (02/05/2010)
Most curly, wavy, or frizzy hair gets more so as we age. It is just nature. I think professional advice is in order. (02/05/2010)
I started using the SunSilk products for curly hair and love the results. No more frizz, great curls and at a price I can afford. Each bottle is about 3$ each at Wal Mart. You have to use the entire regimen to get the results (3 products), but it is worth it to me not to have frizzy hair. (02/05/2010)
Much of the problem is *created by* the artificial drying of your hair. Maybe the solution is that simple. If hair is still dry try rubbing a drop or two at a time of olive oil between your hands then rubbing it in starting at the ends. Just let it be and embrace it.

I put a couple of drops of my favorite essential oil scent in the palm of one hand, rub both palms together and carefully and evenly run my palms over and through my hair and that controls the frizz for me. (02/16/2010)
Mayonnaise works well with frizzy hair, and it is an amazing moisturizer. Otherwise you may try a leave in conditioner, or just leaving regular conditioner in you hair. In the meantime don't straighten it, if it gets "fluffy" use gel, that's what I do. (02/20/2010)
Talk to Aveda about their natural products for frizzy hair. Frizz happens when there isn't enough moisture in your strands. I've been using their light shampoo and frizz conditioner for years and think they are great! They last a long time, too, so even though the price might seem like a lot, it isn't because it lasts so long. (03/01/2010)
