Looking sharp throughout the day while being constantly on the run is easier said than done, but settling for second best is not an option. When it comes to the factors that affect hair and prevent us from enjoying a charming and somewhat expensive hairstyle is static electricity. It is virtually everywhere and this is one of the things that we can’t avoid regardless of how careful we are, so the best you can do is to address the effects.
The supermarkets seem to always have a solution for any problem, but any savvy consumer will contemplate the latent side effects and long-term shortcomings. But oftentimes, we don’t have any options so I opted to buy the commercial anti-frizz serum for around $6 but I find it super sticky and thick that I felt like it weighed down my hair.
Instead of resorting to a mixture full of potentially dangerous chemicals like silicone (the main ingredients of hair serum), which in turn can cause breakage and weaken the hair shaft if being used overtime. Therefore, I decided to turn to do-it-yourself solutions such as this homemade anti-frizz hair mist that I found online. Specifically when I thought about the homemade, natural alternatives that I’ve been creating in a shoestring. Needless to say there are some recipes to choose from aside from the fact that we’ll get the chance to experiment and incorporate our own innovative ideas.
I find this DIY anti-frizz hair serum handy for taming flyways and controlling static electricity. Plus, I added my favorite essential oils so, it smells pleasant.
Why These Ingredients
Camellia Oil - When used on hair, camellia oil helps to condition the hair shaft, stimulate scalp circulation, and promote healthy hair growth by preventing breakage and split ends. It also help with the frizz after the water dries.
Castor oil - Is an excellent emollient and humectant for skin and hair while preventing dry and itchy scalp. It is a treatment for hair thinning and hair loss, has anti-fungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties- so it can be effective for treating skin/scalp infections like ringworm.
Avocado Oil – Avocado oil is a rich source of Lecithin which gives it good penetrative qualities. It works better when blended with other oils like almond oil or olive oil which are also very good for hair care. The various benefits of avocado oil for hair care can be enjoyed in a number of ways.
4 ounces Camellia Oil
1/2 ounce Castor Oil
1/2 ounce Unrefined Avocado Oil
25 drops Essential oils for scent
For dry hair – Use myrrh or peppermint
For normal hair to fine hair – Use lavender or rose oil
For golden highlights – add lemon or chamomile oil
Combine all ingredients in a glass dropper bottle. Shake well before each use
To Use: Apply a small amount to damp hair before blowdrying or apply a very small amount to dry hair for smoothing and shine.
Essential oils are the cornerstone of any anti-frizz hair serum but then again there are so many of them that it is downright impossible to run out of options. This also presents us with the chance of combining the ones that smell better while addressing the issue of static electricity. The only thing that we need to keep in mind is to exercise moderation in everything, including the application of this highly effective concoction. In excess, it can lead to oily hair or it can lighten it too much turning it frail.
