A Quest to Find the Quickest Solution to Frizzy Hair – As Seen in Willow and Sage Magazine!

When the humidity level reaches sky-high limits, I’m talking 90% humidity during the summer months, my hair becomes a mass of frizz!

The summer is quite possibly the most notorious season for bad hair days!

You see as our hair absorbs moisture from the environment, it can become frizzy. Which makes wearing your hair down and/or straight near impossible. This is probably why ponytails and ball caps seem to be pretty popular during the summer…

Say GOODBYE to Frizzy Hair - naturally tame your wild hairs with an easy DIY Anti Frizz Spray!

What Gives?

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.

But, those oils often build upon our scalp and roots. This is where a good natural boar hairbrush comes in to help distribute the excess oil down the length of your hair.

And of course, a dry shampoo spray (recipe here) applied at the roots after brushing can help avoid the flat hair 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. Give it a try and use my five steps to keep your tresses moisturized, strong, and tangle-free here!

Third, a moisture-rich conditioner like my recipe for an all-natural shea butter conditioner does make a big difference when it comes to frizzy hair days.

But, sometimes washing your hair less often, using a dry shampoo, detangler, and great conditioner is not enough! 

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 that 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.

And I imagine, so do you. Luckily for us, I combined several of the frizz-controlling ingredients into an easy, very convenient DIY anti frizz spray! Now we can tame our frizzy hair in little to no time.

Anti Frizz Styling Aid:

After regularly washing your hair, pat dry with a towel, and apply a detangler. Comb through hair and apply a DIY anti-frizz spray from the following recipe. Style as usual and spritz in more as needed, depending on if you have curly, straight, or wavy hair.

Utilize aloe vera gels’ ability to form a protective layer around the hair to prevent moisture loss. Along with its’ power to smooth hair and keep the frizz down. If you’re washing your hair every other day, refresh it by lightly wetting with a spray bottle and applying more anti-frizz spray.

      Absolutely, argan oil and castor oil work well in this anti frizz spray too!

    would jojoba oil work in place of apricot oil

    • Reply

      lifenreflection

      Yes, I haven’t used jojoba oil in this recipe. It’s not one of the best carrier oils for hair. While it won’t cause any harm, it just doesn’t do anything amazing for hair. If you have castor oil I would swap for that if not – go for jojoba. It’s a very small amount anyway in the recipe but does help nourish hair and keep the frizz away.

    Made a batch of the anti frizz but the oils don’t mix in, am I doing something wrong?

      Janice,
      What kind of aloe vera did you use? I use one that is more liquid than jelly. And a 100% pure aloe. Many companies make some terrible aloe vera gel with dyes, alcohol, and other additives to make a cheaper product. And labels can be so deceiving… See the aloe linked to in the recipe. Other than that, it just needs a few shakes for before each use.

    I used real aloe from my plant in my garden and swapped the apricot with castor oil. Since its gel-like I had to whirl a bit in my blender then add to the mix. Shaking before use is fine. I do like your spray as it did wonders for my hair. Since I moved from Chicago to AZ, my hair got really dry and frizzy. Never had that problem before. Great recipe, thank you

    Hi there, is it ok to replace normal water with rose water for this recipe?

    • Reply

      lifenreflection

      Nina, rose isn’t really known to have any hair care benefits. Lavender is though, so you could swap the water for lavender water!

    I do have castor oil but just wanted to ask if almond oil is also a good substitute?

      I don’t know what the results would be if you swapped carrier oils. I know castor oils works and it so amazing for hair!

    Hi

    Quick question… what is the purpose of the sugar in this spray? I felt it made my hair a bit crispy…

      That is the purpose, it adds holding strength to keep frizz away 😉

    I used this for the first time today and I am pretty pleased! I can really tell that it reduced the frizz. I will say, however, that I usually like more of a soft curl look. The outcome from this spray is more like a gel look. Is there something I could adjust in the recipe to make it less crispy/wet looking? Like, reduce the sugar or water it down? Do you have suggestions? Thanks!

      Ashley, you can reduce the amount you apply or decrease the sugar for a softer hold.

    I watered down the whole solution (watered it down by about 1/3 with water) and it seemed to do the trick to soften the look. I like this solution way better than the store bought products I’ve used. Thank you!

    I didn’t want to buy everything listed so I made a rough approximation of your recipe and I’m REALLY surprised at how well it worked! I’m going to hit the store and get the actual ingredients so I can make a proper batch, along with some other recipes (the dry shampoo spray would be great). Thank you!
