Irrespective of your hair type or how extensive your hair care routine is, frizz is one problem that pops its nasty head up from time to time. And those of us with naturally dry or curly hair find ourselves dealing with this problem more often than we’d like to. A major cause of frizz is dry and damaged hair, but you can easily control it by providing your hair with a boost of hydration.
While treating yourself to a regular hair spa is generally one of the best ways to tame a frizzy mane, thanks to the ongoing lockdown, taking this route is not possible ATM. But fret not; we’ve got some game-changing tips that’ll help you control frizzy hair at home.
- 01. Amp up moisture with a hot oil massage
- 02. Load up on conditioner
- 02. Use the right type of hair serum
- 04. Try a DIY hair mask
01. Amp up moisture with a hot oil massage
Giving your hair a good ol’ champi is one of the best ways to control frizz and make it super soft and shiny. Don’t forget to heat the oil before application as it thins down the consistency, allowing better penetration and even distribution. The emollient properties of oil help deliver intense hydration to reduce frizz, prevent breakage and improve the health of your hair.
02. Load up on conditioner
If you struggle with frizzy hair, make sure to end each hair wash with conditioner. Apart from infusing lost moisture, conditioners create a layer of protection to keep factors such as dirt, pollution and other environmental aggressors from damaging your hair. This helps maintain soft, shiny and healthy hair with ease. Just apply from mid-length to tips and leave on for two to three minutes before rinsing off.
02. Use the right type of hair serum
Hair serums are truly underrated when it comes to fighting frizz. These babies help in closing your hair cuticles and sealing in hydration while your hair is still wet. This is what gives your hair that sleek and shiny finish post drying. After washing and conditioning your hair, make sure to apply a coin-sized amount of hair serum all over the length of your hair. For best results, allow your hair to air dry.

Deep conditioning with a hair mask is one of the best ways to provide loads of hydration to dry and damaged hair.
