New Delhi: No matter how much we say we love monsoons, there comes a time when they become a nightmare, especially when hair loss begins or the mane becomes stubborn and frizzy. You might think that using all kinds of cosmetics or applying heat can help tame frizz, but in truth, these are just moves that do more harm than good in the long run.
If you’re striving to soothe frizzy hair and improve its quality naturally, try the following home remedies to tame the mane.
  1. Apple Cider Vinegar: Mix a liter of lukewarm water with a third of a cup of apple cider vinegar – pour it over your hair and leave it on for a few minutes. Then rinse your hair and let it dry. Hair’s natural pH is on the acid side and an imbalance can tip it to the alkaline side and cause frizz. Apple cider vinegar can help restore it.
  2. Eggs and olive oil: Proteins and fats from eggs and omega-3 fatty acids from olive oil can not only tame frizzy hair, but also hydrate it. Whisk an egg with olive oil until the two are combined. Apply it and keep it on for 40 minutes to an hour, then wash off with a mild shampoo.
  3. Eggs and yogurt: Eggs and yogurt are also one of the best home remedies for frizzy hair. During monsoon, mix eggs with yogurt and apply evenly. Keep it for half an hour and wash it off. The two ingredients nourish the hair naturally.
  4. Aloe vera and almond oil: Mix a quarter cup of aloe vera gel with a cup of almond oil and apply it on the scalp and length. Massage it into the hair and leave it on for an hour and wash it off with a mild shampoo. Vitamin E in this hair mask helps fight damage naturally. The same can be achieved by mixing aloe vera with coconut oil.
