You can’t afford to battle frizzy hair when your wedding is just around the corner! Sometimes, humidity, chemicals in hair products, chlorinated water and constant use of heat styling products can dry out your gorgeous mane. It’s time to go the natural way by using these ingredients from your kitchen. Here are 7 ways to the tame the frizz just before the wedding. (Thank us later!)
1. Fresh tea leaves are the best
For damaged, dry and frizzy hair, this home remedy is the best! It helps decrease hair fall, increases volume and gives your hair a healthy shine.
Step 1: Boil some water in a utensil and add a tablespoon of tea leaves.
Step 2: Once the colour of the water changes to brown, add a few drops of lemon juice to it.
Step 3: Turn off the heat and allow it to cool down.
Step 4: After shampooing and rinsing your hair, pour this natural mix all over your hair.
Step 5: Leave it to soak for about a minute and wash it off with lukewarm water after.
Do this every alternate day for three weeks and you’re good to go.
2. Have you tried avocado pulp?
One of the biggest reasons to love this mask is that it’s inexpensive and does a fab job of preventing dryness of the hair. Did we mention that it acts like a natural conditioner as well? Ohhh, yes!
Step 1: Peel one avocado and mash it to pulp till it turns into a paste.
Step 2: Add a tablespoon of thick curd and blend both ingredients well.
Step 3: Using your fingertips, gently apply this mask all over your hair and leave in on for an hour.
If you want to restore the moisture in your hair naturally, you’ve got to give beer a shot! Just FYI, girls, this bubbly drink is packed with minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients. Hello, happy hair!
Step 1: Open a can of beer, let all the fizz finish and pour it on your hair.
Step 2: Make sure you massage your scalp and make your way from the bottom to the top.
Step 3: After a couple of minutes, wash your hair with shampoo and apply conditioner after.
Step 4: Don’t forget to rinse your hair with cold water after.
Remember to try this once every 2 weeks. (You’re welcome!)
4. Let’s go bananas!
When it comes to tackling frizz, bananas are pretty darn amazing! They contain potassium, vitamins, carbohydrates and natural oils, which help add shine and moisture to hair in distress.
Step 1: Peel one ripe banana and use a spoon to make a paste out of it.
Step 2: Add a tablespoon of honey and a teaspoon of almond oil.
Step 3: Mix all the ingredients well, and then apply it to your scalp and hair.
Step 4: Leave the mask to soak and dry for about 30-40 minutes and wash it off after.
Try this once every two weeks.
5. Eggs to the rescue
They may not give out the best smell, but they sure can bring your hair back to life! Eggs moisturize your hair, making it glossy and baby soft.
Step 1: In a container, whisk 1 raw egg with the yolk.
Step 2: Add a teaspoon of lemon and a tablespoon of water.
Step 3: Mix all the ingredients well and apply it to your hair using a brush.
Step 4: Wear a shower cap and don’t touch your hair for 35-45 minutes.
Step 5: Remove the cap. Rinse off the pack and wash your hair with shampoo like you normally would.
Twice a month should work just fine.
6. More love to coconut milk
Coconut milk is good for frizzy hair because it moisturizes the hair and gives it the nourishment it deserves.
Step 1: Pour some coconut milk into a pan and leave it to heat on a slow fire.
Step 2: Once it becomes warm, gently pour it over your hair and immediately wrap your head with a towel.
Step 3: Leave it in your hair overnight, and wash it with lukewarm water the next morning.
Step 4: Don’t forget to apply conditioner after!
Try this thrice in two weeks for the best results.
