Try hard as you might to tame that mop of frizz on your head – iron it, blow dry it or use a hair spray - but the warm and humid weather that we have most of the year, will undo the hours you spent getting decent-looking locks. As Indian’s (thanks to our weather) we face more bad hair days than good ones, and using artificial or chemical products to tame them is just not healthy. So I thought why not use the organic or natural alternatives to tame them especially when you get the same results that last longer!
Also, don’t worry if you’re in a hurry and don’t have a lot of time at hand. I promise you these home remedies don’t require much time. So, what are you waiting for, scroll down…
Homemade honey-lemon hair spritz:
I swear this works like a charm. Just squeeze out the juice of half a lemon and mix it with 5 drops of wild flower honey. Now add this mixture to one glass of clear sparkling water and filter it on filter paper twice. Store this hair spray in a spray bottle and use it on your hair whenever you feel it’s getting unruly.
Apple cider vinegar rinse: Once you have shampooed, use a solution of apple cider vinegar and cold water in equal quantities as a final rinse. It will keep dry, frizzy hair at bay, throughout the day!
Wash and blend a few sprigs of fenugreek and mint leaves. Mix this in a glass of clear sparkling water. Strain and transfer the contents to a spray bottle and use it as a hair spritz.

Coconut milk/oil: If you have extremely dry and unmanageable frizzy hair, then you may need some extra TLC for your tresses. Blend some coconut in a mixer/grinder to extract natural coconut milk. If you don’t have a coconut at home, use one tablespoon of coconut oil in lieu of the coconut milk and mix one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in it. Shampoo your hair as you normally do and towel-dry them. And instead of using a cosmetic conditioner which could prove to be too harsh on your hair if left on, use the coconut-olive oil mixture that you prepare. Using your finger tips, apply minimal amount of the oil mixture to your hair starting below your ears. You may choose to wash it off with cool water or leave it on!
Natural argan oil: If you have some natural or organic argan oil at hand, then you’re twice as lucky as we are! All you need to do is apply a few drops of this magical oil onto your hair. It doesn’t matter whether you apply it to dry or wet hair, anything would do. This oil is so versatile that it moisturises your hair and also serves as a good hair styling product.
The next time you face that frizz or some fly-aways, be sure to use absolute natural remedies because not many people know that using chemical-based beauty products increases the frizziness in hair.
