Do You Have Dry Frizzy Hair? 10 Helpful Tips You Need To Know To Tame It!

girl with dry frizzy hair in the nature

I will get straight to the point! Who doesn’t want smooth, shiny and bouncy hair? If you have dry frizzy hair you know exactly what I’m talking about; oh dear! having to tame frizzy hair locks and keep moisture inside each hair strand? I can totally relate to your struggle!

Without further ado, I present to you my 10 secrets that I’ve personally tested and help me manage my dry frizzy hair.

Are you with me? Let’s start!

10 tips for dry frizzy hair 

1) I don’t use hot water to rinse. My hair is colored, so it tends to lose color and moisture so fast!!! I use cool to cold water in the final rinse to close the cuticles and reduce frizz. I hate it on my scalp for two reasons; cold water flattens the hair (don’t want to lose volume on the top) and I can’t stand having cold water running all over my head (brrrr!!)

 

2) When my hair is damp, I apply natural oil on my hair lengths (or leave-in conditioner). For instance, I use jojoba oil, which works as a moisture sealant, to lock the hydration inside the hair shaft, keep it smooth and avoid frizz. A heat protectant is a must if I’m going to use hot tools to style it.

bristle brush3) I don’t apply force with the brush on my dry ends. Instead, I apply a few drops of natural hair oil (I currently use jojoba or argan oil) or any other dry hair oil on the market. I rub 3-5 drops into my palms and I spread it gently on my hair ends. I use a wide tooth comb to detangle my ends and then my bristle brush to finish my brushing. The oil softens my hair, hence I avoid breakage and frizz.

 

4) I rarely use hair styling products. Hairsprays, gels, mousses, are usually drying the hair. Why not using styling products? Well, here are 3 more reasons right off the top of my head:

  • I get to keep my hair cleaner for a longer period of time.
  • I don’t feel my hair sticky and rough (and surely your partner will appreciate it too!).
  • I need less shampoo, effort and time to wash it.

blow dryer5) I don’t blow dry and use hot styling tools every time I wash my hair. Unfortunately, heat takes moisture off the hair, leaving it dry and prone to frizz! Since I’ve stopped hair straightening on a regular basis I’ve seen a lot of improvement on my hair’s texture. I can take an oath on that, truly! This is definitely one of my favorite tips for dry hair!

 

6) I use a hair conditioner/mask after shampooing to moisturize and nourish my hair. Is there any lovely woman out there with dry hair who doesn’t use it in her hair care regimen?

More tips for dry hair? Let’s see….

natural oils7) I add natural oil in my shampoo. Sometimes shampoo is drying my scalp and hair (for me it has a sense of feeling my hair rough like hay during shampooing). So, I pour shampoo into my palm and add a few drops of natural oil in it. I mix it with my finger and then I wash my hair. I like this simple and effective tip for dry hair so much! And I don’t get to throw away a bad shampoo choice….

 

8) If my hair is dry and frizzy or I have to style it between washes, I use a natural moisturizer. It softens my dry hair and makes my natural waves more defined and bouncy. Don’t use hot styling tools on well-dried hair, you will fry it!

apple cider vinegar9) Hair rinses are good! Scalp’s natural oil (sebum) pH is between 4.5 and 5.5 (acidic). Usually shampoos are alkaline in order to open the cuticles and clean the dirt; therefore an acidic hair rinse gets back scalp’s acidic pH and closes the hair cuticles.

Once in a while, I use apple cider vinegar hair rinse (1 tbsp ACV to 1 cup water) as a clarifying method or if my hair is too frizzy. Some people prefer to pour it before conditioning and others after. I prefer conditioning my mid-lengths after, but test it to see which way your hair likes best.

10) I regularly have oil-based pre-shampoo hair treatments (this free guide has 15 practical tips that help you with your pre-shampoo hair treatments). Even if I don’t have the time to prepare a homemade hair mask and leave it on my hair to act, I just apply olive oil or coconut oil or even a mix of both.

That way the shampoo doesn’t strip my hair’s natural oils and the shaft won’t absorb excessive water. Colored dry hair is usually highly porous, which means the hair absorbs water as fast as it loses it! This rapid swelling and deswelling causes hair dryness and frizz. (No, I don’t need that please!!!)

 

Did you find my hair tips helpful? Do you already apply them to manage dry frizzy hair? If you have any more tips for dry hair to share with me, please do so! I want to test them on my hair too!!! 😉

    Wonderful tips! I have natural curly hair, tend to frizz in winter, so i don’t use too hot water to rinse and i never brush them dry.

    Great tips, I’ve found myself looking after my hair a lot more lately since having an unfortunate incident after bleaching my hair. I rarely use any heat products, use cold water to clean my hair and condition more than I shampoo, as well as using Argan Oil and leave in conditioner a lot

    Great tips and advice. Hair is something so personal. I have pretty easy hair but I realize now that that’s not always the case.
