    Make Your Hair Frizz-Free

    Use Anti-Frizz Styling Products
    There are a lot of great products on the market today that are designed especially for managing frizzy hair. Once you select a good product you will want to apply a dime sized drop of the product into the palm of your hand, and then work it into your hair, scrunching your curls up. It is important that you don’t use too much anti-frizz serum as this can make your hair look oily or greasy. Once the product is in your hair you can either allow your hair to dry naturally or you can blow dry it using a diffuser.

    Use Shampoos and Conditioners That are Designed for Curly Hair
    Curly hair has a unique set of cleaning and conditioning requirements. To meet these requirements you need to use a shampoo and conditioner that are designed for curly hair. These products will usually have ingredients that both protect your hair from split ends and breakage, as well as ingredients that enhance the shape and texture of your curls.

    Use a Leave In Conditioner
    If you have excessively frizzy hair then a leave in conditioner is a great option. These conditioners can be applied any time of the day, and they don’t need to be washed out. Leave in conditioners not only help reduce the development of frizzy hair, but they also help to protect your hair from sun damage.

    Use Coconut Oil
    If you are looking for a less expensive anti-frizz product then you may want to try pure coconut oil. To use this treatment you will need to start with clean and conditioned hair. Then apply a small amount of the oil to the surface of a fine tooth comb and comb the oil into your hair.

    Use a Curl Definer
    In addition to using an anti-frizz serum you may also want to use a curl definer. The curl definer will keep your curls in individual locks. This will help your hair from becoming frizzy.

    Get the Right Hair Cut
    If you have thick frizzy hair then you may just need a good hair cut to tame your frizz. Go to a professional hair stylist for advice about what hair cut you can get to reduce the frizziness of your hair. You may only need a small adjustment to your current cut in order to create a big difference in the look and feel of your hair.

    Taking Care of Your Hair

    Itching associated with seborrheic dermatitis can weaken and damage hair over a period of time, so seek medical help if your scalp skin is itchy, red or scaly.

    Long hair is more easily damaged. People with extensive hair damage should consider a shorter style.

    Hair growth slows with age and hair becomes thinner in texture. Older people should be careful to ensure that only weaker chemicals are applied to their hair.

    Take care when choosing grooming tools. Use a comb made from flexible plastic with smooth, rounded and coarse teeth. Use a brush with bristles that are smooth, ball-tipped, coarse and bendable. Also, brush as little as possible and avoid brushing wet hair.

    Don't use tight rubber bands for ponytails as these cause excessive trauma and breaking of hairs. Likewise, use hair clips loosely.

    Understand the nature of your hair and adjust the intensity of your grooming to match. For example, curly hair tends to crack more easily than straight hair, so be careful.

    Ensure your hair is always cut with sharp scissors, as crushing the ends of the hair will encourage split ends.

    The less that is done to hair in terms of styling, the healthier it will be. It follows then that care should be taken not to over-style with cosmetic products.

    Hair coloring and bleaching are damaging to hair. If you must color your hair, try to stay within three shades of the natural color to minimize damage.

    Hair Myths

    Myth #1: Shampooing Daily Dries the Hair

    Some women believe that shampooing every day dries the hair out. This is not true. What could dry the hair out would be the shampoo that is being used, so it is important to choose a shampoo that is suitable for the hair type – either for oily hair, dry hair or normal/combination hair. Oily hair needs to be washed everyday to get the excess oil out. However, dry hair need not be given the same treatment. Washing the hair with lukewarm water and then applying a moisturizing conditioner is enough. If daily washing of dry hair is necessary, it is important to use a mild shampoo that is made specifically for dry hair.

    Straight hair Myth #2: Trimming Leads to Faster Hair Growth

    The purpose of trimming is to get the dry and scraggly parts and the split ends out of the hair, therefore making it look healthier and thicker. But trimming regularly does not make the hair grow longer faster; rather it is our genes and our diet that determine the rate of the growth of our hair. Some types of hair just grow slower than others. However, to encourage faster hair growth, a diet rich in protein is recommended.

    Myth #3: Hair Develops “Product Immunity” With Regular Use

    Some women regularly change their hair care products and rotate brands because they believe that their hair develops product immunity or product exhaustion after prolonged use – the product stops becoming as effective as it was before. This is obviously a myth. Instead of the so-called product immunity, what is happening is that the product builds up on the hair and needs to be washed off. The solution to this, rather than rotating hair care products, is to occasionally wash the hair with a clarifying shampoo to get rid of the product build up.

    Myth #4: Brushing Causes Hair Loss

    Brushing the hair stimulates the hair follicles to produce more oil. It does cause friction against the hair and scalp so it is important to do it gently and to use a brush of good quality. Just yanking away at the hair causes hair breakage and split ends, rather than actual hair loss.

    As in anything, not everything about hair care should be believed. Sometimes, what seems like good advice is only a hair care myth. Use your best judgment.

    For healthy bouncy hair

    Once or twice a week, heat pure coconut oil and apply it on the scalp and hair. Then dip a towel in hot water, squeeze out the water and wrap the towel around your head like a turban. Keep it on for five minutes. Repeat the hot towel wrap three or four times. This helps the hair and the scalp absorb the oil better. Use a mild herbal shampoo. After each shampoo, apply a conditioner, massaging it lightly into the hair. Leave it on for two minutes before washing it off with water. You can have henna treatment thrice a month, adding four teaspoons each of lemon juice and coffee, two raw eggs, two teaspoons of oil and enough curd to the henna powder. It will make your hair look healthy and lustrous.

    Tips for strong healthy hair

    Oil application once a week. You can use coconut or mustard or amala oil. Add 1 tsp of methi to a 500ml oil bottle; keep for 7 days and use.

    Once a week beat a full egg and mix a few drops of lemon and apply on scalp in sections. Wash after 15 minutes with cold water.

    Brush/comb your hair atleast 3 times a day. This helps blood circulation in the scalp as well as helps to take oil from the scalp to the rest of the hair and keeps it shiny and glossy.

    natural method for straightening hair

    Did you know that there is a natural method for straightening hair too? Of course, it may not be instant, but then it is infinitely healthier than straightening chemicals and irons that do irreparable damage to hair. Get a fresh coconut and blend it well, till about a glassful of milk can be extracted from the pulp. Add the juice of one lime to this milk, stir well into the glass and refrigerate till it acquires a creamy layer on the top. This cream can be rubbed onto the scalp, and left on, covered with a hot towel, for about an hour. Then rinse it off with a mild shampoo and warm water. Repeat this three times a week and you will notice that your unruly locks are gradually straightening up.

    Corrective Methods of Shampooing and Drying

    Methods of shampooing:

    * Brush your hair before shampooing to get rid of dirt and dead skin from the head.

    * Wet the hair, to saturate all layers of hair.

    * Add shampoo in little water and mix both well.

    * Massage gently on the roots with the fingertips in circular motion covering the entire head.

    * Work the shampoo into the bulk of hair over the top layers.

    * Rinse with water until shampoo has been completely washed off. Improper rinsing of taking out the shampoo may cause dandruff and an itchy scalp. Always make sure you don't leave shampoo in the hair.


    * After shampooing, wrap your hair in a towel and allow it to soak up the moisture.

    * Soaking with towel is preferred over forceful drying with towel because forceful drying breaks the hair more easily.

    * Remove the towel after 10-15 minutes.

    * Remove the tangles slowly, using a comb not a brush. Brushes cause the hair to break.
