2. Apple Cider Vinegar, The Fountain of Youth
It is my very favorite. It is easy and it gives more than anything. As I have 3b hair I suffer a lot from frizz. And vinegar be it apple cider or white helps a lot! Apple cider vinegar is acidic in nature that means it has a lower pH. It can get rid of the frizz, condition your hair and give it a nice healthy shine. The effect lasts a long time too. It can also make aging slow.
- Apple cider vinegar
Mix 1:4 water and vinegar and rinse off your hair after a bath. You can let it be or wash it again with a bit of cold water. If the smell bothers you add a bit more water in it or can add in rose water. Do not apply undiluted pure vinegar straight to your hair or skin. It is very powerful and will irritate.

6. Coconut Oil Provides Moisture to Hair
Coconut oil is the best moisturizer provided by nature (my belief). This oil is magic. It has a remedy for every hair and skin problem and suits all types (by far I have noticed so). The oil is absolutely hydrating and moisturizing. Its magic works during both summer and winter. It helps in the rainy season too. It will make hair soft, shiny. It promotes hair growth and length, prevents breakage, split ends, dandruff, etc.
- Coconut oil (available on Amazon)
Just take a bit of the oil in your hand and lightly massage on your hair when it is frizzy or feels dry. Concentrate on the hair body especially the end. Do not make your scalp too oily. It is irritating and will break out. You can add coconut oil to your daily routine. Or before every wash chop-chop your hair in the oil, tie a bun lightly and after 30 minutes wash off with water. You will be amazed to see the result after a month. No more hair problems literally. You can also try olive oil.
7. Banana Mask
Bananas are very rich in potassium. It strengthens your hair, minimizes breakage, restores elasticity, repairs damage, repairs and prevents split ends, provides moisture and much more. Your hair will be soft, shiny and radiant.

Mash the banana completely so there is no lump but a gooey thing. Add the other ingredients and mix them well. Apply the mask all over the hair and scalp and put it in a shower cap. After 30 minutes has passed shampoo your hair followed by conditioner. Once a week will make your hair so soft and manageable.
8. Aloe Vera Soothing Mask To Calm Frizz Down
Aloe is very soothing and is full of hydrating properties. Its water body makes hair and skin soft, smooth and lustrous. It also alters the aging effect. I find it very peaceful to apply the cool aloe during summers. All the heat goes down.

- ¼ cup carrier oil
You can choose any carrier oil according to your preference coconut, almond, olive, jojoba, etc. Add the aloe to it whisk it nicely so that they get blended well.

These household items get rid of the frizz instantly. Lemon’s vitamins and minerals and honey’s ultimate moisturization will keep your hair frizz, dandruff, dryness, split ends and breakage free. Lemon is a natural lightener too. If you go out in the sun with lemon juice on it will bleach your hair healthily, making it lighter shade or two.
- 2Tbsp lemon juice
- 2Tbsp honey
- 1 cup of water
First, combine the juice and the honey and then dilute it with water. Wash your hair and apply it. Dip in your ends in the concoction. Avoid the scalp as it may dry it out more and cause irritation. After 10-15 minutes with shampoo, wash it off. Once or twice a week will bring a great result. Honey alone with warm water is helpful too.

10. Avocado and Olive Oil Creamy Mask for Creamy Hair
Avocado and olive have moisturizing effects that will tame your hair and kick out the frizz.
- ½ avocado
- 2Tbsp olive oil (available on Amazon)
Mash up the avocado and stir in the oil. Make a nice paste. Now take it with you in the washroom. First, shampoo your hair and then apply the mask evenly while massaging the scalp gently and spread it to the end of the hair. Do not leave an inch. Do it slowly with love and tenderness. Let it sit for 30 minutes. Wrap up your hair and do shaving or reading or whatever you like. After 30 minutes, wash it off. Now do not apply shampoo again. But you can use a gentle conditioner to your hair to wash off avocado’s smell.
11. Raw Egg and Olive Oil Fatty Mask for Healthy Strands
The raw egg has lots of good protein for the body. Even when applied topically it benefits. Both the yolk and white part is great and can be used together or individually. The yolk is enriched with fats and proteins. Egg white has enzymes to kill bacteria and remove excess unwanted oil. Olive oil as we know is a great emollient that locks in moisture.
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup olive oil
Whisk the whole egg nicely and blend in the oil. This mask is for before the shampoo. Apply it everywhere but better if it does not rich the scalp. The egg can clog the follicles. Wait for 30 minutes then shampoo. Do not use warm water it will cook the egg and make it hard to wash off.
Else than this tying up your hair in a tight high ponytail with a clothed rubber band as the hair dries, applying mayonnaise, soaking hair in chamomile tea water, giving it a proper haircut, wrapping hair in satin cloth as you sleep, using vitamin pill, hot oil massage, yogurt, and honey mask will help in controlling the frizz.
With regular TLC and right ingredients, you can control the frizz and make your hair healthier.
There are things to avoid too
As you provide it with nutrients it is also wise to avoid few things to avoid the frizz.
- Hot water to rinse. You may at first soak your head in a bit of warm water to open up the pores but always end the process with lots of cold water. Do not let the warm water in your hair for long.
- Avoid heat styling as much as possible.
- Cut down shampooing routine to thrice or twice a week. Use sulfate and alcohol-free ones.
- Do not rub hair in-between towel. Let it, air-dry. Slowly press the towel against the hair to soak off excess water.
- If you have curly hair, it may sound weird but do not comb it often. And everyone should use a big-toothed comb.
Frizz is something that will keep on appearing. It cannot be banished from the kingdom. So, only keeping a tight leash on it will help us out. Happy hair day!
