Natural Ways to De-Frizz Hair

March 12, 2014

An exciting post for you this week - some great ways to de-frizz your hair, naturally.

These are all tried, tested and approved by me. I use them regularly.

I had some samples of de-frizz type products but I just didn't get on with them... So I sorted out my own DIY ones of course! You know me by now!



Deep Conditioning Treatment

I try to deep condition my hair once a week. I use a mixture of oil which I leave on my hair over night before washing out the next day. If you want the full details of my conditioning treatment you can read about it *here*.

Grapeseed Oil



This is a natural heat protecting spray. Just use a small amount (very small - I mean tiny) and run it through the mid section and end of your hair. I avoid my roots as my hair is fine and gets weighed down very easily. As grapeseed oil is very dry and light, I find it doesn't sit heavily in my hair or make it greasy. I use just 4-6 drops while my hair is wet and clean. If your hair is dry and you have some fly aways you could put 2-3 drops in your hands, rub them together then smooth it over your hair, it will help.

Aloe Vera Gel


This is my new holy grail! I completely swear by this and cannot recommend it enough! I use this every single time I wash my hair and I know I'm not using heat (which is 98% of the time). I use some pure Aloe Vera gel (I got mine in Holland & Barrett) when my hair is damp and freshly washed. I take a pea sized amount, sometimes more and rub it between my hands then spread it evenly through the mids and ends of my hair. 


It leaves no trace of stickiness, stiffness, smell or anything else apart from a lovely smooth and soft feeling to your hair! 

Honestly, give it a go, you will be really impressed. I've also made a video on this topic - you can watch it here

Hope you've enjoyed this post, do you have any top tips for de-frizzing hair? Please let me know! Thanks for reading,

  2. I've never thought about putting Aloe vera gel in my hair! Will give that a go...trouble with my hair is that its always frizzy at the roots but I'm prone to greasy hair so I can't put too much product in otherwise I just have greasy and frizzy roots haha!

    1. haha not a good look! if your roots are frizzy maybe get a really small bit of aloe, rub it in your hands so you just have the tiniest bit evenly spread out and then kinda pat it onto your roots?? but just using a really tiny bit of course! xx

  3. Good tips Rach. I put aloe vera in my homemade shampoo and I've had a lot less flyaways since using it. Love aloe vera, so versatile x
