frizz

Sometimes going to a salon and getting a deep conditioning treatment is not in the budget. For that reason, we are going to list a few of our favorite inexpensive and natural ways to ensure your hair stays beautiful and healthy!

 

  • Hair.AllWomenStalk.com discusses a few remedies with us. One, which is very popular, is the use of eggs. To remedy oily hair, use egg whites. To remedy dry hair, use egg yolks. Take half a cup of egg and put it all over your unwashed and damp hair. Leave the egg on for 20 minutes, rinse your hair with cool water and then clean it as usual. You will have healthier and better looking hair in no time!
  • A lot of folks have flat hair, and most of us don’t understand why. Sometimes it can be caused by unwanted residue that was left behind from daily activities or other hair products. The solution for this: baking soda. By mixing two tablespoons of baking soda with half a cup of water and massaging this mixture on your scalp and allowing it to set for fifteen minutes, you’re on the road to bouncier hair.
  • Another great remedy for damaged hair: coconut butter. This remedy is especially important in the summer months, as it helps reduce UV damage. After you make the coconut butter soft enough, apply it to your hair as you would leave-in conditioner.
  • If you struggle with frizzy hair- try avocados! After mashing up an avocado in a bowl, apply it to washed towel-dried hair and let it sit for fifteen minutes. This is an easy way to moisturize your hair and reduce frizz!
  • With yogurt being high in probiotics, it’s no wonder that it’s healthy for your hair, too. For example, another way to reduce frizz is to mix half a cup of plain yogurt and an egg together. By leaving this solution in for only ten minutes, you’ll create more manageable hair. If you simply need a good deep condition, yogurt by itself is the key. Use half a cup of plain yogurt and leave it in your hair for fifteen minutes to achieve softer hair!

 

If you apply these methods to your life, healthier hair is in your near future!

Love Your Color semi-permanent hair dye is enriched with Macadamia Nut Oil. This oil is what leaves your hair looking shiny, healthy and not over processed if you use the dye. But the real question is what is Macadamia Nut Oil and how does it benefit my hair?

What is Macadamia Nut Oil?

Macadamia Nut Oil is an essential oil extracted from the nuts of a macadamia tree. It is used in many skin and hair care products as well as for cooking.  This oil differs from others because it doesn’t leave the scalp greasy and is easily absorbed into the scalp and hair shaft. According to wiseGEEK.com, “This product is made by extracting oil from the macadamia nut which grows on a macadamia tree. Although this tree originated in various parts of Australia, many locations throughout the world have become home to the macadamia tree. The chemical make-up of this product is similar to oils that the human body produces which makes macadamia oil for hair easy for the body to absorb.”

Benefits of Macadamia Nut Oil on Hair

  • Increase Strength: The stronger your hair is the less damage and breakage you will have. When Macadamia Nut Oil is applied to your hair, (including the roots) it can increase the strength of your hair and make it strong and smooth.
  • Repairs Dry Hair: Macadamia nut oil is very light compared to other oils such as olive oil. It is easily washed out can contains important vitamins and minerals that are essential in treating dry and damaged hair. Examiner.com says, “The high absorption and deep penetration of the hair and scalp means both obtain the proper moisture they need to stay healthy. The vitamin E contained in the macadamia oil helps hair to soften and rejuvenate. Even thick, coarse hair is able to soften up. The proteins help to strengthen and promote healthy hair.”
  • Eliminates Frizz: The essential fatty acids and vitamins found in macadamia nut oil are what eliminate frizz. Buzzle.com says, “It is capable of moisturizing and strengthening rough, dry, frizzy and limp hair. This is because unlike coconut oil which penetrates the scalp, this oil coats the hair follicles and scalp, thereby preventing loss of moisture.
  • Say bye bye breakage: Macadamia Nut Oil is easily absorbed into hair, as I said before; it coats the hair and makes it stronger. When your hair is stronger you won’t have to deal with breakage. Livestrong.com says, “macadamia nut oil helps to prevent against hair breakage by penetrating the scalp and hair follicles to improve hair strength and elasticity.”

Application of Macadamia Nut Oil

According to wiseGEEK.com, “One of the most common applications of macadamia oil for hair is to warm the mixture in the microwave or on the stove and distribute it equally throughout the hair including the scalp. Most product directions suggest that the client leave the oil on the hair for up to two hours before rinsing and styling as usual.”

DIY Hair Mask

For this mask you will need 2 avocados that are peeled and pitted and 1 tbsp of Macadamia Nut oil. You can either mix them in a bowl together or put them in a blender. You should apply this mask after you shampoo your hair in the shower. Rub and massage the mixture all over your hair. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then wash out. Your hair should feel soft so you don’t need to use conditioner as well.

Whether its winter making your hair frizz or you just can seem to control your frizzy locks. Then this is the blog post for you! Here are some helpful tips for getting rid of unwanted frizz!

  • Use a Deep Conditioner: This will coat your hair making it harder for moisture to sink in to your hair and create unwanted frizz! According to Allure Magazine, “Frizz happens when dry, porous hair sucks up moisture in the air, causing the shaft to swell.” If your hair is really fine use deep conditioner once a week. If you hair is really thick use it every time you wash your hair. If your hair is not really thin or really thick use a deep conditioner 2 times a week. Leave it on for 5-7 minutes and then wash out with cold water to add shine.
  • Use a higher heat setting: When flat ironing your hair, use a hotter heat setting that way you won’t have to keep running over your hair with the iron. According to DailyMakeover.com, “Lowering the heat will actually do more damage because you have to run the flat iron over your hair over and over. Once or twice per section is perfect if the heat is between 350 and 450 degrees.” Make sure you use a heat protectant spray but you don’t want to fry your locks!
  • Don’t Brush Dry Hair: According to WebMD, “avoid brushing hair after it dries. Brushing not only disrupts your hair's cuticle, it can also stretch hair, leading to breakage.” Towel dry your hair using a “superabsorbent microfiber towel to gently press the water out of your hair.” Then use a comb or wet brush to get rid of tangles. Try to avoid styling hair with a brush once it’s dry.
  • Hot Oil Treatment: If you don’t want to use a deep conditioner every time you wash your hair, use a hot oil treatment once a week. According to Allure Magazine, “It's not as heavy as a mask, so it won't weigh hair down.” Only apply the treatment from your ear down so the crown won’t get too flat.

  • Switch to Alcohol Free Products:  According to Allure Magazine, “Most hair sprays and mousses have a high alcohol content, which can cause the cuticle to swell up.” So to avoid frizz buy products that contain little to no alcohol and you are sure to see results. (I tried this last year and it really helped my hair a lot and got rid of unwanted frizz.)
  • Blow Dry Hair Correctly: According to About.com, “Not blow drying hair correctly will definitely cause frizz. To dry hair correctly, hold the blow dryer under hair, squeezing curls in your palm as you dry. If you don't use a diffuser, aim the blow dryer nozzle downward, in the direction hair grows.” So to avoid frizzy hair make sure you are blow drying your hair in the direction that it grows.
  • Talk to your stylist: If your frizz is just out of control maybe that’s a sign you need a trim. Regardless your hair stylist should know how to help fix the problem!
  • Don’t wash your hair every day: Washing your hair with shampoo everyday strips your hair of its natural oils. If you are one of those people who has to wash their hair every day because you feel “dirty” then wash your hair minus the shampoo. You should only use shampoo once or twice a week.
  • Fish Oil Pills: Fish oil pills can add moisture to dry hair, which can help with unwanted frizz!  According to AllWomenStalk.com, “Fish oil contains Omega 3 fatty acids which lubricate our joints, hair, skin and prevents inflammation. Be sure to get enough healthy fats in your diet and try using fish oil for two months and note the changes. Be sure to buy one that is purified though so you don’t expose yourself to harmful ingredients in cheaper brands.”

Frizzy hair is an annoyance to women everywhere. Hair becomes frizzy from a lack of moisture and oils, which are necessary hair health. When strands are dry, they become desperate for any moisture they can obtain. Because of this, the hair shaft tries to open up and find any ounce of moisture. This is why hair becomes extra frizzy in damp weather. Even though frizzy hair is frustrating, there are easy ways to prevent it, and it all starts in the shower.
  
When you wash your hair, use cold water! The cold water closes your hair cuticles and produces less frizz and more shine. Also, don’t wash your hair every time you shower because washing can strip the strands of essential oils. Both of these solutions are easy ways to help minimize frizz. If you've washed all of your natural oils away, try using Moroccan or Argan oil. After you shower, apply a small amount of the oil to your wet or damp hair before you blow dry and style. This will help to minimize your frizz, but be careful not to use too much! Too much oil will weigh your hair down and make it greasy.

For an easy at-home solution, apply an olive oil and egg mask. Combine 1/4 cup of olive oil and one raw egg and apply to your hair. Leave this in for thirty minutes and then rinse out with shampoo and conditioner in the shower. This treatment will help restore the vitamins that your hair has lost and will help make it stronger and shinier. If you’re experiencing frizz in the colder months, rub a dryer sheet against your hair.

Keep in mind, this only works to help tame your frizzy hair in the winter, but it is a quick and easy fix, even when you are on the go. With these simple solutions that you can execute in the comfort of your own home, you can prevent frizz in no time!
