With Fashion Week right around the corner, it becomes more and more obvious that not all of us can sport a frizzy do quite like the models a la LV. (Unless you’re AfroBella.) Whether you have curly hair, straight hair, or wear your curly hair straight, out-of-control frizz tends to be be less of a fierce beauty statement and more of a hassle.

Miss Cozy‘s Tip of the Day: Some natural ‘do it at home’ remedies are the best solutions frizzy hair. To create balance in natural chemicals that may cause frizzy hair, try rinsing with equal amounts of apple vinegar and water after conditioning. This will smooth out hair cuticles. (Keep eyes tightly shut if using this method – vinegar stings.) Shea butter can also smooth out hair while preventing a greasy look.

Avoid using a hair brush if you have frizz-prone hair. Try using a hair pick and finger combing when hair is dry. Avoid rubbing wet hair with a towel. Instead, try letting wet hair set in a towel for ten minutes after a shower. Air-drying hair whenever possible, instead of using a blow dryer. Another suggestion is to try adding a dime-sized amount of natural vegetable glycerin to water and applying to wet hair after a shower. This can also be mixed into a gel or mousse product that you regularly use.

Lastly, avoid hair products that contain drying ingredients such as sodium lauryl sulfate and alcohol. Some of the best remedies for frizzy hair can also be the cheapest.
