Frizzy hair can be a pain, especially in hot weather. Don’t let fried-looking ends and stubborn curls ruin your look. Here are five easy, inexpensive solutions you can try at home to achieve the straight hair you’ve always wanted.
- Wrap hair tightly
With your hair still wet, comb and divide it down the centre. Next, flip the left portion all the way over to the right and wrap it around the back of your head. Secure with bobby pins. Flip over the right side and wrap and pin the same way. Let your hair air dry completely. For best results, sleep with your hair wrapped in a silk scarf.
- Roll your hair
Use jumbo-sized hair rollers to roll sections of wet hair and secure them tightly against your head. Leave hair to dry. This helps get rid of frizziness while giving you a polished rebonded hair look without the dreaded, straw-like frizz.
- Make a natural hair mask
Buying hair masks can be costly over time, so why not make your own? Try out this DIY milk and honey mask recommended by beauty blog The Free People: mix one cup of whole or coconut milk with 1 tbsp of honey, apply on hair and leave on for an hour before washing it out. Ensure every part is covered, including the scalp. Alternatively, you can also substitute with a ripe banana, coconut oil and honey. After the treatment, your hair will feel softer and smoother.
- Use a diffuser when blow-drying
While using a blow dryer creates volume, it can also result in dry and damaged hair due to the amount of heat given off. Avoid this by adding a hair diffuser extension onto your blow dryer. Not only does the diffuser limit the amount of direct heat and forceful air hitting your hair, it also limits hair movement when drying. This creates less friction and therefore less frizz.
