While summer hair is, unfortunately, nothing to brag about for many of us. There are luckily a few things that can help. For example, washing your hair less can actually help your natural hair oils to do their job.

And of course, a dry shampoo spray (recipe here) applied at the roots after brushing can help avoid the flat head look… Secondly, if your hair tends to tangle a good homemade hair detangler will not only stop the tangles it will leave hair softer and healthier than before.

Especially when the high levels of humidity last from sunup to sundown. We need more than the above combat to frizz! On my quest to find a solution I found several things helped. Such as:
What Works to Tame Frizzy Hair?
Honestly, all of the above works to cut down on frizzy hair. However… most are not easily applied. Most require a hair mask or hot oil treatment. Although, I can make time for one of those once a week, I need something more convenient.
