Is every day a bad hair day for you? Can’t seem to be able to tame your mane? Try those five simple tricks, and you’ll be a few steps closer to having flawless hair!

Use Argan Oil

Argan oil is great for the skin, but it is also great for the hair. It rejuvenates it, makes it smooth and shiny, without weighing it down. It also nourishes your scalp, and enhances your hair’s elasticity. About a half hour before you take a shower, massage some argan oil in your air and scalp, making sure you distribute it evenly, from root to tip. Wrap a warm rag or towel around your head and keep it on until you hop in the shower, then wash your hair thoroughly. Do that argan oil cure about once a week, or once every couple of weeks. You can also mix a few drops of argan oil with your shampoo and/or your conditioner, or simply use it as an anti-frizz lotion on dry hair.

Don’t Use a Towel to Dry Your Hair


A nice, fluffy and soft towel is made of a porous material which, when it meets the mostly porous consistency of your hair, creates frizz. Instead of using a towel, try and use something smoother like an old T-shirt, for instance. And, regardless of the tool you’re using, avoid scrubbing your hair dry.

Always Keep a of Dryer Sheet In Your Bag

Dryer sheets are not just good for making you clothes smooth, soft and smelling good: They are also good for fixing hair problem instantly. Not only will they –obviously – rid your hair of static, they’ll also make your hair frizz-free and smooth. Ideal for a quick fix! Just tap the dryer sheet on your rebellious locks for an instantly slick look. Do not overuse, though, cause they could make your hair heavy.

Rinse Your Hair With Apple Cider Vinegar Once a Week

Apple cider vinegar is great to eliminate product build-up in your hair and is a good, natural alternative to store-bought conditioner. Mix equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water, and keep that mixture in a spray bottle in your shower. After shampooing your hair, spray your vinegar/water mix onto your hair, massage it in and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing. Your hair will be smooth, clean and frizz-free!

Wash It Less Often

Over washing your hair is bad for it; it accelerates the formation of split ends, plus it dries your hair out. You should definitely avoid washing your hair everyday, and if you could push it to washing it once or twice a week only, it’d be ideal. For fixing oily looking hair, try natural homemade dry shampoos. They work wonders and don’t damage your hair. If you have blond or pale locks, baby powder or cornstarch will act as an effective and cheap dry shampoo. Just sprinkle some on your roots, let sit, and then brush off. For brunettes, cocoa powder mixed with cornstarch will do the trick and won’t leave a noticeable white residue on your hair.

  2. I only knew about the benefits of Argan oil just recently. I don't even know where to get it in our area. There are a lot of great reviews about Argan oil so I will definitely try it. I also agree that it is not ideal to rub your hair using a towel because of the friction. It makes your hair more frizzy.
