With unpredictable weather and the wrong crop of products, it feels nearly impossible to create a frizz-free hairstyle for naturals. Fortunately, with the right tools and techniques, it’s actually easy to come out victorious. These tips can help you create a vibrant set of frizz-free curls.

Pre-poo before washing

Coating hair with natural oil prior to a wash can really help ease frizz. Added bonus? It leaves hair nice and soft. Olive oil and coconut oil are great pre-poo treatments. You can apply it before a wash, cover hair with a plastic cap and allow it to sit for 15-30 minutes. Sit under a hooded dryer or wear a heat cap if you desire. You could also use it as an overnight treatment.

Use Apple Cider Vinegar

The kitchen pantry has a wealth of treasures to give you luscious, healthy tresses. One of the prized jewels that you can find there is Apple Cider Vinegar. Rinsing hair with this ingredient balances the pH of scalp and hair, removes buildup and seals down hair’s cuticles for a smooth, frizz-free finish.

Product selection is key

If you experience frizz more during the Summer than the Fall, you might want to expand the range of products that you use. There’s a plethora of shampoos, conditioners and other frizz-easing products on the market. Look for labels that emphasize hydrating hair and preventing unwanted frizz.

  • These tips are pretty good. The only caveat I’d add is to the tip about using ACV…Be sure to get the ACV with the mother (the murky substance at the bottom of the jar) and make sure you dilute it! It’s PH is far to high to use alone! I usually do a ratio of 1 PT ACV to 2 PTs water
