If your summer looked anything like mine, your hair has lost the battle against chlorine, sun and salt. It’s time to turn our attention to the frizz and get a handle on our locks! These all-natural dry hair repair recipes will have your hair looking smooth, shiny and back to life in no time.
DIY Anti-Frizz Spray
- distilled water
- 1 teaspoon jojoba oil
- 1 teaspoon glycerin
- 5-10 drops lavender essential oil – great for all hair types
- 2 tablespoons aloe gel
- spray bottle
Whisk in a bowl the jojoba oil, glycerin and aloe gel until they are well blended. Add the lavender essential oil. If you have extremely dry hair, you can substitute geranium for lavender. Pour mixture into a spray bottle (be sure it’s a good-quality pump) and then add the distilled water until you are pleased with the consistency. You will want to refrigerate the mixture and shake before each use. The spray will smooth down unruly frizz and hydrate the hair shaft.
Banana & Honey Hair Repair Mask
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 tablespoon honey
- shower cap (optional)
In a blender, combine the banana and honey, blending until all the banana pieces are pureed and you are left with a smooth mixture. Apply the mask to your hair, taking extra time to apply on the ends. The shower cap is optional, but heat allows for extra penetration, and a shower cap is great for keeping the heat in. Wait 20 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.51
