Natural Remedies to Prevent Frizzy Hair in Men
Our hair follicles contain sebaceous glands that produce an oily substance called sebum. It keeps our hair and scalp naturally nourished and protects us from damage. When the natural oils are not able to reach hair ends, it causes dryness and frizzy hair in men and women.
Men with naturally curly or rough hair are more prone to frizz and hair fall. So let’s understand more about the reasons behind frizzy hair, and how to prevent it using natural remedies.
Causes of Frizzy Hair in Men and Women
Frequent hair washing may lead to dehydration which may cause frizz in your hair and flakiness on your scalp. The best shampoo for frizzy hair in men is one that is super-gentle and made with nourishing plant oils.
Unsuitable Water Quality
Using chlorinated water or hard water to rinse your hair causes it to become brittle. Using hot water for shampoo also leads to dryness and frizz.
Incompatible Hair Products
Using hair products and following routines that do not match the needs of your scalp and hair may create an oil imbalance leading to frizzy hair.
Ultraviolet radiation and extreme weather conditions like cold and chilly winds may dehydrate hair strands further. Humidity in the air may end up making your hair look frizzy.
Excessive Hair Treatments
Frequent colouring, hair treatments, and blow drying are common causes of hair damage. They make the texture of your hair look dry and frizzy.
Improper eating habits, sleep deprivation, smoking, stress, hormonal changes, etc. eventually start affecting your hair quality. They also cause damage to hair follicles.
Ways to Prevent Frizzy Hair
Follow a Suitable Hair Care Routine
Following a hair care routine designed with products that match the requirements of your hair, balances the natural oils and prevents frizz.For example, a suitable hair care routine for hair that is prone to frizz may include using a organic hair oil, gentle and non-stripping organic shampoo, followed by an organic hair conditioner that is enriched with nourishing plant oils and nut butter.
Inculcate Healthy Hair Habit
If your scalp gets oily sooner, try using dry shampoo instead of washing your hair every day. Prefer air-drying your hair naturally instead of blow-drying. Use lukewarm water for rinsing your hair post shampoo. Pat your hair gently with a soft t-shirt for drying. Refrain from trying out new hair treatments till your hair is restored to a healthier state.
Lead A Wholesome Lifestyle
Eat home-cooked meals made with nourishing ingredients like nuts, seeds, fleshy fruits and root vegetables. Practise mindfulness throughout your day. Indulge in weekly massages for promoting skin and scalp health.
Natural Ways to Treat Frizzy Hair
- DIY Nourishing Oil Therapy: According to a study, oiling your hair and massaging your scalp prevents moisture loss in hair strands, thereby preventing frizzy hair in men. It also decreases the chances of getting split ends and hair breakage. In a clean and dry bowl, take 1 tablespoon of each of our cold-pressed castor oil and cold-pressed argan oil. Take a bigger bowl and fill it up with hot water. Place the bowl with your oil blend in the hot water to warm up the oils slightly. You may even add other Juicy Chemistry carrier oils to this blend for added benefits. Use this blend to massage your scalp and nourish your hair strands. You may also leave the oils in your hair as an overnight conditioning treatment.
- DIY Hydrating Hair Serum: According to a study, fine and straight hair holds sebum very well, but curly or coarse hair tangles and breaks easily. The use of conditioning oils and leave-in serums can decrease friction and make hair easier to comb. It can also prevent static and frizz that come with dry combing. The best serum for Frizzy Hair can be made at home as well. In a clean and dry bowl, add equal parts of our cold-pressed argan oil and cold-pressed hemp seed oil. Add one drop of each of our Lavender and Rosemary Essential Oils to the bowl, and mix well. Cleanse your hair with a gentle shampoo, and pat it dry with a soft t-shirt. When your hair is still moist, apply a few drops of the prepared oil mixture to your hair ends for preventing moisture loss. Let your hair air-dry as usual.
Banana Hair Mask
Every week, use a deep conditioner hair mask on your hair to nourish it well. Take a ripe banana and mash it with a spoon. Add some coconut milk and mix it well to form a paste.
Apply this all over your hair and keep it on for at least 30-45 minutes before rinsing with a shampoo and conditioner. Both banana and coconut milk have healthy fats that add moisture to your hair and soften the strands.
Aloe Vera Juice
Got an Aloe plant at home? Put it to good use by making a hydrating pre-shampoo treatment. Scoop out the transparent gel from the aloe vera leaf and blend it in a mixer.
Apply this juice all over your hair and scalp and leave it on for 30 minutes before rinsing with shampoo. Aloe vera gel has natural polysaccharides and amino acids that bind moisture to hair to improve hydration.
If you don't have an Aloe Vera plant, check out JC aloe vera gel, which has 99.5% pure aloe vera juice.
Sleep on Satin Pillowcase
Both men and women can reduce frizzy hair by simply switching to a satin pillowcase. Cotton pillowcase causes friction which can increase frizz. But satin is extremely soft and gentle against your skin and hair and hence can reduce frizzy hair in men

How to make the most of our oiling experience?
Allow our organic hair oils to get absorbed into your hair for a couple of hours before shampoo. You may also wrap a warm towel on your head after oiling to create a steam treatment for your hair. This method also allows hair oils to penetrate better.
