Home Remedies for Frizzy Hair

1 of 3

For many, frizzy hair is a daily battle. For others, it can be an occasional problem. In either case, it is frustrating for those who want shiny, silky and bouncy hair. Frizzy hair can look dull and be very difficult to style.

The main cause of frizzy hair is lack of moisture. The cuticle layers on hair strands need moisture to make them smooth.

Some other contributing factors are extreme humidity, regular use of a blow dryer, swimming in chlorinated water, certain chemicals in hair care products and using the wrong products for your hair type.


No matter how often you suffer from frizzy hair, you can use a variety of common ingredients from your kitchen to treat the problem with simple, natural remedies.

frizzy hair home remedies

Here are the top 10 home remedies for frizzy hair.

1. Carbonated Water

Carbonated water (such as club soda, soda water or sparkling water) is one of the best options for treating frizzy hair at home.


Carbonated water is made by using pressure to dissolve carbon dioxide gas in water. This water has low pH levels that help fight frizz caused by humidity.

Simply rinse your hair with carbonated water after each regular shampooing. This will soothe and tame the frizz, but you need to follow this remedy for quite some time.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is another very effective ingredient for combating and preventing frizzy hair. The acid in apple cider vinegar will smooth out the frizz and give new life to your dull hair.

  • Mix equal amounts of water with apple cider vinegar to reduce its acidic property and use it as a final rinse after washing and shampooing your hair. This simple remedy will make the hair frizz less and also add shine to your hair. You can use it every two to four weeks.
  • Alternatively, you can apply apple cider vinegar diluted with water onto your scalp with a cotton ball. Then comb your hair gently to distribute the solution. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse your hair well. Repeat this once a week.

3. Beer

Beer is a great option for restoring moisture in your hair. It also has nutrients, minerals, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants that your hair needs. Use darker beers for best results.

  • Simply coat your hair with beer, allow it to sit for a few minutes and then rinse it out with cold water. Do this once every two weeks.
  • Another option is to mix equal amounts of beer, shampoo and conditioner. Apply this solution on your hair. Now brush your hair to create tension. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse your thoroughly with cold water.

Use beer on your hair once every two weeks.

Note: Cold water is believed to help close the hair cuticles, which makes it less susceptible to frizz, and adds shine.

4. Avocado

An avocado-based hair mask is a highly effective remedy to control frizzy hair. The high amount of vitamin E present in avocado helps tame the frizz. Apart from the amazing hydrating benefit, avocado also has the good kind of fatty acids that help soothe frizzy and unruly hair.

  • Mash one ripe avocado, add a little olive oil and mix it well. Shampoo your hair and then apply the mixture throughout your hair. Let it sit for 30 minutes to an hour, and then rinse it out with cold water. You can then condition your hair to get rid of the avocado scent.
  • You can also mash an avocado and mix it with curd or mayonnaise to make a smooth paste. Use this as a hair mask once or twice every week to prevent dryness and condition your hair.

5. Bananas

Bananas are great for hair conditioning because they are rich in natural oils, potassium, carbohydrates and vitamins. All these ingredients lock in moisture to soften and add shine to your hair and help prevent and repair split ends.

  3. Rinse your hair and then shampoo and condition as usual.
  4. Do this once a week.

6. Coconut Milk

Coconut milk works as a natural light protein and moisture treatment for frizzy hair. You can extract coconut milk from the flesh of the coconut or opt for one available in the market.

  1. Put two tablespoons of coconut milk in a small pot and heat it until warm. Make sure it doesn’t get too hot and burn.

  3. In the morning, wash your hair with shampoo and let your hair dry naturally.
  4. Do this twice a week to enjoy shiny and bouncy hair.

  1. I read the above methods for frizzy hair and also seen the remedies in hair growth… I have very thin frizzy hair as i couldn’t make out what to use properly for my hair…. please suggest some good hair growth remedy for frizzy hair… and of course i want my hair straight also…

    1. Have you looked into shampoo bars? I also had thin and my hair was getting frizzy. It’s changed my hair so much I wish I could yell it from the roof tops. I like Beauty and the Bees products the best but there are many out there to choose from.
      Good luck.

  2. thats what i have to my hair is dry, then to oily but sooooo frizzy. gosh i want my hair straight but straightening even with a heat protected makes it frizz and dry so i stoped. but i need it to be silky straight none frizzy hair. i younge and want healthy help.!!!

  3. Very helpful article!! I love the avocado recipe, I will try it for sure! now I`m super fan of argan oil because it makes my hair super soft ,shiny and smooth down the frizz so good, I got one by Pro Naturals and I love it!

  4. We’ll obviously different races have different hair textures and volumes. Actually oiling your hair can cause a lot of damage, especially if the olive or coconut oil is to hot. For best results I would recommend cocoanut oil if you decide to apply any oily substances. Also when applying oil to your hair it can cause your hair to grow faster. To get best results for both of the uses after applying a even amount to your hair sit upside down for 4-6 minutes then keep the oil in for 4 hours. Also you would want to rinse it out with cold water. you can squeeze lemons or limes into your conditioner for best results along with not using shampoos. Shampoos rinse al lot of moisture out of you hair. I would recommend only shampooing your hair every three showers or not at all.

    1. Good info on applying oil to my hair. I actually tried doing it after dying my hair and apply coconut oil to my scalp and it really is my scalp so much. Coconut oil has a lot of healing properties as well. I think I’m going to start doing coconut oil in my scalp when I wash my hair even if it makes my hair a little bit more oily it will definitely benefited more.

      1. Also I had already started putting coconut oil yogurt and avocado in my hair occasionally and it is amazing. An avocado its half eaten from taco night mixing in mayonnaise and coconut oil and egg yolks is great too but you don’t even really have to be that complex. You could just do an avocado as well as coconut oil and mustard in your hair and wear it for about an hour with a bag over your head and I wash out. You do have to wash out with shampoo though because those chunks of avocado that’s right up in your hair. It’s very gross but it is so worth it 🙂

        1. Yogurt is really good for a damaged scalp from dying your hair as well :-). I learned this from a beautician / friend. Yogurt has cultures in it that calm your scalp and soothes the burning

  10. Thanks a lot for the avocado , egg and banana idea. I will use it for my hair as well as my daughters . Will let you guys know in couple of weeks about the result of using them.

  11. I too had very dry curly frizzzzzzy hair.above mentioned all the tips I do. But they are not give me a good result. So please give me a tip. And also a shampoo and conditioner. And I want naturally stright hair

    1. I have heard that Wen is suppose to be healthy for your hair and doesn’t contain the ingredients in shampoo that strip your hair of the nutrients. I have not personally tried it myself as I prefer cheaper methods

      1. Yogurt is really good for a damaged scalp from dying your hair as well :-). I learned this from a beautician / friend. Yogurt has cultures in it that calm your scalp and soothes the burning

    2. I have naturally curly hair too. If you want to straighten your hair first wash it with Dawn dishwashing soap. Rinse real good with cold water (as cold as you can stand it) . Use a conditioner that repairs and moisturizes. Leave on for 2 minutes ( I just stand there or wash my body while waiting) Rinse with cold water. I then use the Instyler Pro to straighten. It uses heat and a rotating brush so it doesn’t fry or burn your hair. After you straighten use about a palm size amount of heated up Coconut oil. Turn your hair upside down and run the oil all the way to your scalp and through your hair. You’re hair will look and feel amazing I promise. I no longer have dry frizzy hair. Good luck and let me know how it works out for you. You can find a cheap Instyler on Letgo or Offerup.

  12. If you are doing the banana treatment, make sure it is really smooth. Maybe even try using a blender. When I did it, the banana was very chunky and it took me almost an hour to get out. Other than that, it really moisturised my hair and left my usually frizzy hair soft, light and non- frizzy.
