FRIZZY HAIR SERUM FOR SOFT, SHINY HAIR
FRIZZY HAIR SERUM FOR SOFT, SHINY HAIR

Frizzy hair often happens when the cuticle layer of hair is raised, making hair appear dry and frizzy instead of nourished and smooth.  Many things can aggravate frizz.

  • humid weather (pretty much every single day of a midwestern summer)
  • dry hair
  • washing hair too often

I’ve tried a lot of different things to help control frizz.  From lots of research and experimenting over the years, here’s what I’ve found works

  1. only wash your hair every 2-3 days (this keeps hair from drying out)  Use my homemade dry shampoo (recipe here) inbetween washing to keep hair looking fresh and clean.  There are recipes versions for blondes, brunettes, and redheads, so it’s easy to find the dry shampoo that’s perfect for you.
  2. deep condition hair to lock in the moisture
  3. use my homemade anti-frizz serum (recipe below) – It restores shine and texture, making hair soft and silky.
  4. don’t touch your hair – The more your touch your hair, the more the hair cuticle is likely to get roughed up, and the frizzier your hair will get.

How to make anti-frizz serum for soft, silky hair

1:  add 1 tablespoon avocado oil to a 4 ounce spray bottle

tip: be sure to use a spray bottle that’s safe to use with essential oils.  Here are a few of my favorite options: glass, stainless steel, or certain types of plastic (PET #1 or HDPE #2)

tip: use a funnel to make it easier to pour the oil into the bottle without making a mess

2:  add 1 tablespoon castor oil
3:  add 1/4 cup of flaxseed oil
4:  add the following essential oils (22 drops total)
  • 10 drops cedarwood essential oil
  • 6 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 6 drop peppermint essential oil  

Note:  This is a 1.3% essential oil dilution.  That is,  there are only 22 drops of essential oil in 18 teaspoons of carrier oil. Read More……………………
