This DIY All-Natural Hair Serum For Frizzy Hair nourishes and conditions hair while smoothing fly-aways to reduce frizz. It’s as effective as it is simple — made with just a few natural ingredients! Let’s take a closer look…
Got a case of the fly-aways?
A mane that just can’t be tamed?
Oh my friend, I feel ya.
I may have straight hair but I’ve always struggled with frizz. And so over the years, I tried smoothing hair product after smoothing hair product, looking for the holy grail.
Much like my struggle with adult acne and my search for the the perfect topical solution, it wasn’t until I turned towards oils that I found what I was looking for!
And upon inspecting the ingredient label of my favorite smoothing hair serum, I soon realized: hey, this sounds like something I could make pretty easily!
Since using oils — and this DIY All-Natural Hair Serum for Frizzy hair in particular — my hair has never been smoother or healthier.
Not only does this DIY hair serum reduce frizz, but it protects and nourishes hair too.
Olive oil is intensely moisturizing while jojoba oil absorbs into hair quickly and doesn’t weigh it down. The two are perfect together — they don’t leave hair looking or feeling greasy, which I’m sure we’ll all agree is something we want to avoid!
Lavender and peppermint essential oils aren’t just included to add some natural fragrance to the hair serum (though they do smell pretty darn yummy, especially coupled together!) — both have been found to help promote hair growth.
One study found that lavender essential significantly increased the number of hair follicles and deepened the depth of hair follicles, reducing hair fallout and increasing overall thickness.
Another study found that peppermint essential oil did the same. Though this serum is applied to the ends of hair rather than directly to the scalp, some of the oil may naturally migrate to the scalp with brushing.
DIY All-Natural Hair Serum For Frizzy Hair
- 1/2 oz (1 tablespoon) organic jojoba oil
- 1/2 oz (1 tablespoon) olive oil*
- 12 drops organic lavender essential oil
- 6 drops organic peppermint essential oil
*Yes, go ahead and pull that bottle of olive oil out from the pantry!
You’ll also need a small bottle or jar. I recommend a 1 oz glass dropper bottle.
- Combine all ingredients into your bottle or jar.
- Shake gently to mix all of the ingredients together.
- Apply a dime- to quarter-sized amount of oil to damp hair, concentrating most on the ends.
NOTE: I’ve found that using a brush made with natural boar bristle helps to distribute the serum and my hair’s own natural oils, helping to reduce frizz even more! I definitely suggest giving it a shot.
