Say no to hot showers
We know it’s cold AF and a hot water bath is relaxing and, well, the only option during the winters, but you need to ditch steaming hot water for warm water (if not cold) to wash your hair at least. Hot water makes your hair dry by stripping it of moisture and opens up the pores resulting in frizzy hair. Wash your hair with warm water to keep it frizz-free.
Trim the frayed hair
The reason for the fizziness could be your dry and damaged hair. It is recommended you get a trim once in a while to get rid of those brittle dry ends to de-frizz your hair.
Don’t skip the conditioner
You can’t, we repeat, you can’t afford to skip conditioning your hair. Shampooing your hair isn’t enough, especially if your hair is prone to frizz. It locks in the moisture and smoothens out the raised hair shafts. Apply a conditioner every time you wash your hair to avoid frizz.
Try aloe vera gel
You may not know this, but aloe vera gel can tame that frizzy unruly hair like no other. This ingredient acts as a smoothening mask that leaves your hair soft and silky without any extra efforts. Slather on freshly extracted (and whisked) aloe vera gel on dry hair and keep it for 10 minutes. Rinse it off and follow up with a shampoo and conditioner.
Use a good hairbrush
Number one solution to fighting frizz is to brush it down. While that’s completely true, the question is which brush to use that doesn’t cause your hair to get all frizzy? Plastic combs are a big no-no. They cause friction and thus cause more harm to your frizzy. Use natural hair brushes with wooden or metal bristles that tame down the frizz and don’t cause static.
