How do you fight frizz in natural hair? What keeps frizz away all summer and fall and what products work best on frizz are all questions every natural is dying to know. Frizz – it’s the dreaded enemy of good hair days and sleek styles. It can turn the sleekest of styles into a ratty bird’s nest all in a matter of minutes.

FIGHTING FRIZZ ON NATURALLY COILY, CURLY HAIR
If you suffer from frizz regularly, then chances are your hair is lacking moisture. Frizz is a common problem that can be very easy to fix. All you need to do it take a look around your kitchen. We’re sure you have at least one frizz fighting solution in your home. Let’s have a look at some easy frizzy hair remedies that are made from natural ingredients that you may already have in your own home.
AVOCADO HAIR MASK
If your frizz is caused by dry, dehydrated hair then avocado is your best frizz-fighting option. Avocado is packed with vitamin E and fatty oils, which work to add moisture to the hair and smooth frizz.
For this mask, mash one very ripe avocado in a bowl along with a tablespoon of virgin olive oil. Apply this mask to freshly washed hair and allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes before rinsing with cold water. This mask can be done every two weeks and you should notice results immediately.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR RINSE
The acidity of apple cider vinegar makes it a naturally effective frizz fighter. The acid in this vinegar works to smooth and tame frizz. ACV also gently removes dirt and product buildup from the hair without stripping it of natural oils.
