Tired of dry and frizzy hair which goes crazy while you try to detangle them? Then you watch a television advertisement and happily run off to the store to buy that expensive product that promises to get you rid of that frizzy hair, and then 2 months later you are one of the 50 others who are holding on their phones, waiting in-line to talk to a customer representative to complain that the product didn’t work and to demand a refund (which you will never get off-course). Well the first mistake you made was that you ignored the nature’s gift of things that your hair is yelling at you to use. These natural things all around us are all that your frizzy hair actually need. And you won’t complain because nature never disappoints.

17. Carbonated Water
You might have scolded your friends or family members for spilling a soft drink on your hairs for fun, all the time cursing them and thinking that what a mess your already frizzy hair would become after this. Actually you should be thanking them. The carbonate in those soft drinks keeps your hair hydrated until you wash it off. The only problem is that those soft drinks have sugar in them which makes your hair hard. So do wash your hair whenever this incident happens.
Proper application of carbonated water is:
- Buy some pure carbonated water (in which nothing has been added).
- Shampoo your hair normally using a shampoo without conditioner.
- Rinse your hair with some carbonated water after washing off the shampoo.
- Do it regularly and don’t give up. It takes some time to show its effects.
16. Hair Spray For Urgency
As I mentioned above; hair spray comes in handy when you haven’t tried the amazing hair masks and your hair shows a kink from here and there. There are times when we just want our hair to look flawless and we cannot afford any kinks. Like, for instance, when you have to attend an official business meeting – the kinks just don’t go with the formal impression you want to create.
- Spray some hairspray on your hands and settle the frizz with the hands.
- The more long lasting the hairspray, the longer your kinks will behave themselves.
15. Banana Treatment
Bananas are not just good for body health; they are also good for hair health. They are available whole year long so you won’t be waiting for a particular season to get rid of those irritating frizzy hair and shine in parties like those TV ads.
