No matter whether you’re a man or a woman, your hair needs constant, diligent care to be in perfect condition. However, some types of hair are more difficult to manage than others. You know what I’m talking about, don’t you?

Frizzy hair is the mess that your hair tends to turn into from time to time. It’s a common problem for everyone that has curls. Some people are born lucky, though. They only have to deal with frizz from time to time. But what if your hair gets frizzy all the time? That’s a nightmare.

There is a variety of hair styling products that can help you combat your enemy. But sometimes they are not enough, or you’re using the wrong products. What can you do in such circumstances?

Well, there are many safe and reliable home remedies for frizzy hair that you can experiment with within your home. Moreover, they don’t contain any chemicals that could damage your hair further.

First, let’s see why your hair turns into a mess.

What causes frizzy hair?

There is a simple reason why you get frizzy hair. It’s called a lack of moisture. Huh? How’s that possible? Let me explain it to you in detail.

Your hair has a complex structure. It consists of three layers – the medulla, the cortex, and the cuticle. The cuticle is the outermost layer of our hair. It’s made of dead cells that form scales. It sounds disgusting, I know. But this layer has a big job – it protects the hair and makes the hair shafts strong.

If your cuticle is healthy, it’s easy to comb and untangle your hair. The brightness and softness of your curls also depend on it. But why is it important for frizzy hair?

This outer hair layer is usually flat. But during the day, your hair loses moisture. As a result, the cuticle layer gets raised, moisture passes through it, and the hair strands start to swell. The result is frizz.

Curly hair is more prone to dehydration than straight hair. That’s why it gets frizzy so often. To make matters worse, if you have frizzy hair, it tends to suck the moisture out of the humid air, and the result is visible– your hair looks like a bird’s nest.

But what are the reasons behind the lack of moisture in our hair? There are many factors at play, and it might take you a while to identify the guilty party:

  • Wrong hair styling products.
  • The natural hair oils that your scalp produces don’t reach the strands.
  • You’re not drinking enough water.
  • Your hair is rubbing against drying materials when you sleep.
  • You don’t use hair conditioners.
  • You don’t deep condition your hair.
  • You’re using the wrong shampoo, and it’s drying your hair. The best shampoo for frizzy hair is sulfate-free and rich in glycerin.
  • Medication.
  • Damage to the cuticle by chemicals from dyes or bleaches.
  • Too much protein or lack of protein.
  • Excessive use of blow dryers.
  • Swimming in chlorinated water.
  • Extreme humidity.

Signs of frizzy hair

I’m going to surprise you – you might think that all frizzy hair looks the same, but you’re wrong. There are different types of frizzes. Here are they:

  • Surface frizz – occurs on the outer layer of the hair. Very common in humid weather.
  • Poof-ball frizz – in this case, your hair looks like a big poof ball.
  • Application frizz – this one appears if you apply too many hair products.
  • Spider web frizz – the surface of your hair has a “web” look.
  • Halo frizz – occurs on the crown of the head.
  • In-The-Curls frizz- appears inside your curls, and they don’t look smooth.
  • Frizzy tubes
  • Frizz at the end – appears at the end of the strands
  • Product frizz
  • Crimped frizz – individual strands look crimped due to heat and humidity.
  • Dry frizz
  • Fluffy frizz – looks like several individual poof balls.

As we said, there are many hair products available on the market for dealing with frizz. Their purpose is to give your hair the moisture and nourishment it requires.

However, why should you use expensive stuff, when you can manage your condition with simple ingredients found in your kitchen?

Here, I’ve gathered some of the most efficient home remedies for frizzy hair. Try them and see for yourself!

1. Apple cider vinegar for shiny hair

Apple cider vinegar is an invaluable asset when it comes to caring for your hair. You might be reluctant to use it because you worry about the smell. Well, don’t. The smell of vinegar will disappear once it evaporates.

Apple cider vinegar has numerous health benefits for your hair:

  • It restores the natural pH of the scalp.
  • It smoothes the hair.
  • It removes dirt and dead skin.

Here’s how to make it work:

2. Eggs make your hair silky


There is nothing more efficient for dealing with a variety of hair conditions than a simple egg. Why is that you ask?

When you use egg masks, your hair gets strong and silky. The egg yolk is rich in proteins and fat, and it acts as a natural moisturizer. On the other hand, egg white has antibacterial effects. It removes excess oil and kills bacteria. Moreover, eggs contain natural amino acids which rejuvenate your hair and smooth the frizzy strands.

It’s best if you use eggs in combination with olive oil. Olive oil also moistures your hair, and makes it silky to the touch.
