Dealing with Frizzy Hair

contest winner icon

Frizzy hair is a challenge but shouldn't be the decision maker of what kind of day you are going to have. A good hair trim is where to start. Every 6 - 8 weeks the ends need to be trimmed. If you have one length all over, you may consider long, layers instead of just it all having same weight, as well as length.

Use shampoo and conditioner that doesn't have added toxins. Shampoo does not need sulfates in it. This just strips your hair of it natural oils and shine. Using a lighter weight conditioners are best. Just because it says for damaged hair, doesn't always means its better. Using less of a conditioner that you got on sale, is a great way to save money. After you shampoo, use a comb with conditioner on your hair to evenly distribute it throughout the hair.

Unless you are buying your product at the salon, they are basically all the same. Please keep this in mind when purchasing. It is true that the scent is different, how much water, or added coloring, etc. Just start by reading the ingredients.

Rinsing your hair in apple cider vinegar isn't a myth. It helps with build up of products, and helps leave hair shiny with added volume. So every 2-3 shampoos you may want to try this. If you can only have time on weekends then do it then.

Here comes my personal secret; I use the vitamin E capsules on my ends. What's left on my hands, I just rub throughout my hair. It's amazing, and you don't have to spend hardly any money. I can get 30 in a bottle at the Dollar Store. Read the bottle; if you take supplements you know there is are differences in the way vitamin E is made. In this case you are not ingesting it. You are taking a pin and squeezing it out of what may or may not be a soluble capsule. Vitamin E is so wonderful for your hair, and there is no need for those very expensive oils, that say it does the same thing.

I like to air dry my hair. Blow dryers just cause more damage. I do realize that sometimes this is not possible, but just try not over blow dry. Hot irons or straighteners damage the hair by the high amounts of heat. This causes breakage, and frizzy hair to become worse.

If you use hair spray, gels or whatever styling products, try to skip it all on days you are not going to work or staying at home. Put on a bandanna, and maybe some extra olive oil leave it in. Just let your hair be. An "off" day from all the heat, shampoos, and other products is very good for your hair. I also do the mayonaise or avocado treatments from time to time. Try them all and see which one works best for your hair.

I use organic everything which is what I recommend. I suggest you start by reading the labels, using the vitamin E, trying one of the hair treatments I suggested and letting your hair have some down time away from anything that destroys the hair shaft.

I will leave this with something you may laugh at but my brushes and combs are wrapped with a dryer sheet (unscented). It helps with static electricity and fly away frizzy hair.

The olive oil my mother had my sister and I do that every Sat. night. Vitamin E I did because it made sense to me. Then after all these years, I heard it on Dr. Oz.

Dealing with frizzy hair is not that easy. Hair is the first thing that a person notices. You cannot look beautiful until you carry a perfect hair style. Beer is a great option for restoring moisture in the hair. It is also helpful to get healthy hair.
