And yet another hair care question...

I haven't had long hair (still just shoulder length) since I was in high school some humgh/cough/clear throat years ago. It is super frizzy and I think really needs some styling product for when I get out of the shower. I do not use a dryer, so I will not be styling that way.

Any suggestions?

This isn't really a "styling product", but it helps with the frizzies (I have them too). Melt a couple tablespoons of pure coconut oil and work into your hair. Wear a showercap (or Wal-Mart bag like me) for about 10 minutes or so and wash out. It's a wonderful moisturizing treatment for you hair. On the plus side too is that coconut oil has a thousand and one uses. My fave is a lotion replacement...I wake up with really soft skin when I use it at night!

Re: And yet another hair care question...

I have wicked long, curly hair & it gets out of control fast. I tried ACV for conditioning & it was an epic fail. I occasionally will use a couple eggs in my hair in the same way you'd do a leave in conditioner in the shower.

The only post-shower thing that seems to do the trick is EVOO in small amounts or coconut oil - which is what I use daily. I've found that coconut oil that I melt (I do it just by putting a glob in my hand & rubbing together until it melts) works great - I use it after a shower after I brush my hair - doing a coat all over my hair & kind of scrunching the ends so that it gets into the ends where you'd normally have split ends. I'll add some more after my hair dries, if I need it, the way you'd use an anti-frizz serum. Works great! I don't use any other "product" on my hair anymore & I used to use conditioner, gel & an anti-frizz serum before.

What do you use to wash out the coconut oil so that you aren't left with greasy hair?

I'll chime in, speaking for myself though. I don't wash it out & my hair isn't greasy at all. It might be a bit shiny/oily when I first put it on, but it goes away. If I want to condition my hair (not just use the oil as a styling product/frizz serum), I do it at night before I get into bed.

Just make sure you oil from ears down, and only use a tiny bit (enough to make your palms shiny) and you won't have greasy hair.

coconut oil definitely! personally i just put it on the bottom 2 inches to help with the frizzies. i don't put it near the scalp because i don't want my hair to look oily. i have heard it works great in curly hair!

Re: And yet another hair care question...

I am looking for something as well for wavy/curly hair. I'm a bit iffy about trying the coconut oil especially if it's only on the bottom couple of inches of hair. Isn't that going to leave the rest of it frizzy? I've been straightening my hair for the past couple of years without product and not wearing it curly and wanted to start again...

My son's hair dreads easily even though we are white. (I hope that is not an offensive way to state that, but it's a different hair type.) His hair usually gets washed & conditioned every other day (he is a dirty boy). Usually once a week we do the Apple cider vinegar rinse after conditioner, but will do more if needed. If we skip the conditioner it's still a mess. If we don't use the ACV it's still a mess.

When my hair was long& curly I used the (un natural) Aussie gel & scrunched really good once it was dry. Naturallycurly is a really good web site.
