If you have natural curly hair, there will be times that it will get frizzy especially on hot and humid days. Frizzy hair is caused by dry and damaged hair. That’s why taking good care of your hair minimizes frizzy hair. Here are some tips on reducing frizzy hair.
- Do not use strong shampoos. Many shampoos have harsh chemicals. Make sure to dilute the shampoo with a little amount of water before applying it on your hair. Chemicals in shampoo can damage your hair and make it look dry.
- Protect your hair from excessive heat. Heat from curling irons and straightening irons can damage your hair. They are not recommended to be used everyday because they can make your hair very dry and brittle. Also protect your hair from excessive sun exposure. Sun has harmful ultraviolet rays that can cause severe damage to your hair. When you are under the sun, use a hat or an umbrella to shield your hair from the sun’s harmful rays.
- Use hair conditioner daily. It is important to use hair conditioner because it softens and moisturizes your hair. When using hair conditioner, let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing it off to make sure that your hair is fully moisturized. Rinse it very well and make sure that no residue is left on your hair because this can make dirt to stick into it.
- Avoid too much brushing. Too much brushing of your hair can damage it. Friction from your brush rubs off the protective layer of your hair, thus making it brittle and frizzy. You can use light pomade to hold your hairstyle so you can minimize too much brushing.
Proper hair care will prevent you from getting frizzy hair. Preventing hair damage and keeping it moisturized will keep your hair manageable.

There are many hair treatments available on the market that can keep your hair healthy and shiny. If you don’t have enough budget or time to go to a hair salon, you can still keep your hair beautiful by using common items found at home.
Excess oil can make your hair dull and sticky. Dust can also accumulate in your hair. To make it shiny, you can brew some tea and use it as a final rinse after a shower. Tea has Tannic acid that can dissolve excess oils in your hair. It also has antibacterial and astringent properties. Tea will not only make your hair shiny but also keep it clean. If you don’t have tea at home, you can use some lemon juice or cider vinegar mixed with water. These acidic substances strip off some of the oils but they don’t have the other beneficial properties of tea. To use it, shampoo your hair and rinse with water. Pour the mixture on your hair and let it sit for a few minutes. Then rinse with warm water.
If you want to thoroughly clean your hair, you can use baking soda as a shampoo substitute. Baking soda removes excess oils and scrubs off dead skin from your scalp.
For silky smooth hair, use an ample amount of baking soda mixed with a little water. Massage it into your hair then rinse off with warm water.
Dry scalp can cause problems if it is not treated. Too much scratching can damage your scalp and may lead to hair loss. You can use honey mixed with water to moisturize your dry scalp. Massage the mixture on your scalp then let it stand for 3-5 minutes.
Olive oil can do wonders to your hair. It is rich in antioxidants and vitamin E to keep your hair healthy. It will also protect your hair from humidity and UV exposure from the sun. For damaged hair, apply a liberal amount on your hair. Use a shower cap and leave it on for 30 minutes. Shampoo and rinse after.
These items are readily available at home and can help keep your hair healthy. Take proper precautions when using these items. Make sure you are not allergic to any of these items or their chemical properties before you use them.

Women suffer from dandruff as often as men do. However, the stigma of having dandruff is more pronounced on women rather than men. It’s an unspoken rule that women should have perfect and beautiful hair regardless of length and color. It’s one of the first things men look at when they scout for a potential date. As with all the other parts of their bodies, women also flirt using their hair by casually tossing it to one side, running their hands through it; or letting it touch the guy’s the hand.
Would you date a woman with a bad case of dandruff? Imagine how horrifying and unsanitary it must be to see flecks of dead skin from the woman you’re out on a date with lands on your soup or glass of wine. What could have been a romantic evening would end abruptly and there won’t be as much as a phone call afterwards.
Dandruff is no laughing matter. It can be caused by a fungus that makes the scalp itchy and cause flakes of dead skin to fall off. While it is not contagious, it is rather unsightly. Treating your hair and scalp for dandruff is quick and easy which is why there’s no excuse to leave the problem untreated. There are numerous dandruff shampoos for all hair types. Some of these products have been proven to be effective in treating the condition in as little as a few days of use.
If you want some other home remedies, you can try applying tea tree oil to your scalp and massage it for several minutes. Tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic and can alleviate the itching caused by the fungus. This would lessen the instances of you scratching your head and scalp in public. For the more severe cases of dandruff, you can always consult a dermatologist for a cream or lotion which can be applied topically.
Say goodbye to dandruff today and start welcoming romance back into your life.
