DIY Treatment for Dry Frizzy Hair
Being born with naturally curly, coily hair is a blessing but on those days when your curls feel drier than the Sahara feeling blessed is not how you generally feel! Fear not there are ways to combat this spell of brittle fever.Snap, crackle, pop used to be sound of your favourite cereal instead your hair has taken this new beat and is running wild with it. What to do? What to do?
Okay first thing Do Not Panic.
When your hair feels dry there can be any number of factors at play for example:
- Environmental stress such as indoor and outdoor temperatures.
- Hormonal changes.
- Heated appliances you may be using without any heat protection.
- Lack of a regular routine for caring for your curls. Something may have upset the balance of your normal schedule eg illness, holiday travels or just life!
Put the scissors away, dry your tears and whip up a simple concoction to rehydrate your curls.
You will need some Mayonnaise your favourite essential oil and a plastic shower cap.
Depending on the length of your hair 1 or 2 tablespoons will be enough. Mix the Mayonnaise in a bowl with a plastic or wooden spoon with about 15-20 drops of your favourite essential oil ( you use this to cover the scent of the Mayonnaise) and apply to dry hair.
If you have fine hair apply to the brittle ends only.
If you have medium to coarse hair apply from mid length to ends.
No need to apply to roots or your scalp but if your hair line is coarse and dry you can apply the mixture there.
Don your plastic shower cap have a cuppa or read a magazine for 20-30 minutes then do your normal shampoo and conditioner wash.
The best way to remove the treatment is to apply the shampoo right on top of the Mayonnaise first BEFORE wetting your hair. It makes a huge difference to the ease of washing the treatment out and you are left with strong shiny soft hair! You can do this treatment once a month or as needed.
Now if you can’t be bothered to mix this up or can’t stand the thought of Mayo on your hair here are a few suggestions.
