Frizzy hair always restricts you from getting the gorgeous hair that you ever wanted to have. But if you have got the right ingredients, treating dry, dull and frizzy hair is possible. So, in this post, I have come up with some of the best homemade hair mask for frizzy hair.

These hair masks are very effective in treating dull looking frizzy hair and gives you soft, smooth, and healthy hair. Now, before talking about the recipes let me explain what causes frizzy hair.


What Causes Frizzy Hair?

Frizz occurs when your hair is dehydrated. In order to fulfill your hair’s hydration, the cuticles i.e. the outermost layer of the hair rises to seek moisture from the air around it. When this excess moisture from the atmosphere enters your hair,  your hair starts to swell up. Hence you get frizzy hair.

Other factors that could lead to frizzy hair are:

  • If you regularly take showers with extra hot water, chances are you will have frizzy hair. Hot water strips the moisture and sebum(natural oil) from your hair. This makes your hair frizzy and prone to damage.
  • The excessive use of a hair dryer, curling iron or other hot hair styling tools can cause frizzy hair. As they also suck the moisture out of your hair which leads to dull looking frizzy hair.
  • Washing your hair every day can also cause damage to your hair.  Since most of the shampoos available out in the market contain harsh chemicals, washing your hair every day with those makes your hair dehydrated. This ultimately leads to frizzy hair.
