2. Beer

Beer for hair? It might sound crazy but beer contains a lot of nutrients that are full of health benefits such as B group vitamins. By using beer as a conditioner after shampooing, you’ll get softer, shinier and more defined hair.

Plus, not to mention that if you apply beer to your hair then expose yourself to the sun for twenty minutes, you can lighten your color or give it some natural highlights.

3. Egg yolk


Egg yolks are extremely nutritious. They are rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins A, B, D, E and minerals such as iron, phosphate and magnesium. Yolks are an amazing super-food for both your skin and hair.

If you want to prevent your hair from frizzing, mix your shampoo with an egg yolk. The mixture will leave your hair cleaner, more nourished and frizz free. This treatment works great for people with normal or oily hair.

4. Honey

Honey is a wonderful hair treatment. By applying honey to your hair, you can create a non-greasy layer that protects your hair from frizz, humidity, sunlight, etc. In addition, honey also has properties that effectively treat dandruff, eczema and hair loss.


  • 2 tablespoons of liquid honey (50 g)
  • ½ cup of water (100 ml)


  • Mix the honey with the water. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle.
  • Spray the mixture to your dry hair, a half hour before you plan to wash it.
  • Massage it into your scalp.
  • Afterwards wash hair as you normally would.

Another simple way to eliminate frizzy hair is applying a hair mask after washing.  A hair mask will work on hair for at least a half hour on dry hair. Afterwards, shampoo and condition your hair to keep it nice, hydrated and not oily.

7. Jojoba oil

Jojoba oil

Jojoba is one of the best things for treating frizzy hair. It has a texture that’s most similar to sebum, while other oils only make hair greasy or clumpy.

However, you have to use it in small amounts. Spread it out onto both of your hands and massage it all over your hair. You can use it on both wet or dry hair, before or after washing. It also helps prevent split ends.
