Achieving smooth hair that is manageable and looks great is a constant beauty battle. Try one of these easy and natural techniques to turn your dry hair that won`t lie down to well-behaved locks with moisture and control.
Flyaway Remedy Mask
Helps smooth damaged flyaway hair. Beat an egg into 6 tablespoons of yogurt. Massage mixture in for a few minutes. Wrap a towel around your hair for 10 minutes and rinse with tepid water.
Frizzy Hair Remedy
This hair rinse is designed to decrease the frizz and achieve smooth hair. Combine 1 tablespoon of wheat germ oil with ½ c apple cider vinegar and 2 cups of water. Use the mixture as a hair rinse after you shampoo. Use the entire rinse each time you make the preparation, and use it after every shampoo if you see results. The smell of vinegar will fade from your hair in 10 to 15 minutes, but the benefits of the treatment won`t.

Use a cloth hair wrap at night to get smooth hair in the morning. Brush or comb your hair thoroughly, and wrap it smoothly around your head. Put pantyhose, a wave-cap or a scarf over your hair to keep it in place. You can put a very light coat of oil on your hair before you wrap it if it is dry. In the morning, carefully remove your wrap and style as usual.
Give your hair a mayonnaise treatment and let the fatty acids in the mayonnaise help smooth your hair and increase the hair`s natural oils. After shampooing and towel-drying your hair, apply 1 tablespoon or more to your hair and cover with a shower cap. Let the mayonnaise soak into your hair for an hour and rinse with a mild baby or herbal shampoo.
Use natural oil on your hair like coconut oil, sunflower oil or almond oil to style and keep your hair smooth and in place instead of commercial gels, mousse or hairsprays. The product ends up being sticky and gooey in your hair, not giving it the smooth consistency you may want. If you have thin and dry hair, only use a very small amount of oil on your hands and apply to your hair.
Castor Oil Scalp Massage
You can massage castor oil into your scalp for a conditioning treatment that should result in much smoother more moisturized hair. Warm ½ cup of castor oil and massage it into your hair and scalp. Gently comb it through your hair, and wrap it in a hot towel for 30 minutes. Shampoo, rinse and style your hair as usual.
Blow Drying Methods
Blow drying can leave your hair looking fried and the opposite of smooth. To avoid frizzy hair from the blow dryer, consider using a diffuser that more evenly distributes the heat through your hair for less damage. Use a round brush when possible for controlling blow-dried hair from flying away while it is being dried. Give your hair a periodic break from the blow dryer to give it time to return to a naturally smooth state.
