6 home remedies to try for manageable hair

If you’ve ever had uncontrollable frizzy hair, you know exactly that the feeling of taming your mane is next to impossible when you need it most. Frizz in the hair occurs when the hair shaft and ends lack moisture. The hair then absorbs moisture from the environment causing it to puff up and let’s just say this can be a big hindrance to your beautiful hair days. Dry, damaged hair is the biggest victim of frizz and although it can be an ongoing problem during the summer and monsoon months, it can surely be fixed with some easy home remedies. All you need are simple fatty acid-rich ingredients that will enrich your hair from root to tip and give you no frizz, no fuss but a flawless mane.

Get fabulous manageable hair with these simple hair masks.

Apple cider vinegar hair rinse

Apple cider vinegar is known to maintain pH balance as it is acidic in nature, which fights frizz caused by an alkaline imbalance of your regular shampoo. Dilute 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar in a liter of water and follow your shampoo routine with this wash and let it sit for a few minutes. Rinse with cold water and repeat this exercise twice a week for noticeably frizz-free hair.

Egg and honey hair mask

Eggs have a high content of saturated fat present in them along with biotin; the protein formed to create hair cuticles and vitamins and is one of the best hair masks for frizz-free hair. Whisk 2 eggs or depending on the length of your hair and add 2 tablespoons of honey to the mixture to combat the unpleasant smell while giving your hair extra shine. Leave this mask on for 30-45 minutes and cover it with a shower cap before washing it off with a mild shampoo.

Avocado hair mask

Avocados can make great salads and snacks, but this fruit loaded with nutrients and healthy fats is also great for your hair. Avocados have natural oils that trap moisture in the hair shaft, leaving it hydrated from within and taming frizz naturally. To create a mask, mash a ripe avocado and add a few drops of coconut oil for extra nourishment. Carefully apply the paste and cover your hair with a shower cap for 30-45 minutes and rinse out the hair mask with mild shampoo to reveal the luscious locks of your dreams.

Banana hair mask

Avocados can be an expensive commodity, so bananas are a great and equally effective alternative to add to your hair. Mash ripe bananas in a bowl according to your hair length and add 1 tbsp of honey and 2-3 tbsp of olive oil to the mixture and create a smooth paste. Carefully apply the mixture from root to tip concentrating on the stem and roots and leave it on for 20-30 minutes. Rinse as usual and say hello to beautiful hair.

Yogurt hair mask

One of the most common ingredients found in our kitchen is yogurt or curd and believe us or not, but its present lactic culture is all the smoothing conditioner you need to tame frizz. Apply generous amounts of curd to your hair from root to tip and cover your hair with a shower cap and leave it on for 45-60 minutes and wash your hair as usual. You’ll be surprised how this simple ingredient is loaded with fats that can completely revamp your hair like no other.

Mayonnaise hair mask

Who said it’s better to use mayonnaise to froth up your sandwiches? For extremely dry and damaged hair, mayonnaise works like magic thanks to the egg content it contains which makes the hair soft. In a bowl, add mayonnaise and almond oil to a paste and apply it liberally all over the hair and wear a shower cap over it and keep the mixture for 20-30 minutes and rinse with your regular shampoo and voila, good hair days all over again.
