Frizzy hair is the devil! Have you ever experienced looking like you are one of the zombies in Walking Dead? Rick must just go ahead and shove that big gun in your head. That’s the frizzy hair look and it is not pretty at all. Not one bit.
But how can one manage frizzy hair? Isn’t that like a permanent condition?
Frizzy hair happens when the hair cuticle is raised. When it is raised, hair moisture is lost and this causes the swelling. In short, hair becomes dehydrated and it needs to be nourished!
You have to hydrate yourself from within. Drink lots of water, at least 8 servings per day. Moisture is not being retained by the hair shaft and your protein to moisture balance may be off. You may have treated your hair with too much chemicals and it literally killed the cuticle. You are not using intensive treatments and conditioners. It could also be your shampoo – it can be overly drying to your hair.
There are some ways to prevent dry hair from transitioning to frizzy in a snap. One of those ways is to use high-quality shampoo for frizzy hair that contains anti-frizz ingredients.
We’ve written about the ways to make simple homemade shampoos recipes before but if you’re dealing with really frizzy hair, it is best to use professional shampoos designed for that type of hair and preferably shampoos for frizzy hair with natural ingredients.
L’Oreal Ever Pure Sulfate Free Moisture Shampoo
If you have frizzy hair, it would be best to use the shampoo that’s sulfate-free, meaning it has no chemicals and it is made of natural botanical ingredients like Ever Pure from L’Oreal. (This has a conditioner partner too!)
Sulfate is equivalent to detergent, basically. So if you love the way your hair is being lathered by your sulfate-full shampoo, well, think again. You are like using Ajax or Tide with creamy feeling and a sweet smell on your hair.
Now, it is better to use sulfate-free shampoo with botanicals because it will inhibit scalp irritation, among other things. It is all natural so basically, the ingredients are from nature. It will also help in retaining the moisture on your hair and scalp which means goodbye frizzy hair. Sulfate-free shampoo will gently cleanse your hair and not strip away all the oils that it needs to be healthy.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Flawlessly Straight Shampoo
This is not a sulfate-free shampoo but it contains Frizz-Mending Complex and Silk Protein. Frizz-Mending Complex is unique to this particular shampoo. Anyway, what it really means is that John Frieda Frizz Ease Flawlessly Straight Shampoo is packed with keratin and jojoba oil plus other very effective hair taming ingredients.
Keratin is an ingredient that you can use on your hair on a regular basis to keep it soft, manageable and shiny. Your hair will become smooth and frizz-free for the day even if it is humid. Keratin can also promote the repair of your damaged hair strands. If your hair is colored, keratin will preserve its vibrancy and if you are looking for a product to have a straightening effect, keratin will do that.
Jojoba oil in shampoo can make the hair stronger and increases the ability of hair cells to reproduce at a faster rate. This means the oil can positively affect hair growth and it can also keep the scalp healthy. It cleans the hair without stripping away the natural oils while moisturizing hair follicles.
(OGX) Organix Shampoo Awapuhi Ginger
Organix Shampoo Awapuhi Ginger is a repairing and moisturizing shampoo which is an excellent choice for frizzy hair. It has organic ingredients which can do wonders if your locks and strands are super dry and unruly. This shampoo has:
- Awapuhi Ginger

- and it has keratin in its ingredients too.
Awapuhi Ginger is known to contain healing properties. This root aims to fix damaged hair shaft to make it healthy, strong and smooth. It also protects the scalp from forming dandruff, it decreases the chances of hair fall and it encourages hair growth.
Aloe Vera has always been a “for beauty” plant used by people for many centuries. It is rich in Vitamins like A and C and Folic Acid, as well. When you apply Aloe Vera on your skin, what do you feel? You feel relieved and refreshed. The same thing goes for your hair – Aloe Vera gel soothes damaged hair. It also prevents dandruff formation, eliminates the accumulation of excess hair oil, and the amino acids it contains controls frizzy hair by making it silky smooth and shiny. It also detangles the hair making it soft while combing.
Avocado oil is great for totally damaged hair. With constant use, it can reverse the signs of damage like brittleness and extreme hair dryness. The oil is rich in protein (amino acid complex), Vitamins A, B, D and E, and it has iron, magnesium and copper too. Not to forget Folic Acid – all these nutrients condition, strengthen, restore and maintain the hair to be in its healthy glory.
Coconut oil contains Lauric Acid (protein) which is responsible for retaining moisture in the hair shaft. If there is moisture, hair breakage is limited. It is best to use Coconut oil for all types of hair even those without damage because the oil will protect it from going there.
Cocoa butter is fat, basically, and it can provide the moisture your hair needs. When the hair is moisturised, the strand will be smooth and silky. It will refrain from going static. It even strengthens the hair shaft which can prevent hair loss. (Cocoa butter also has many benefits for the skin which we already wrote about.)
