          Calm your frizzy, out of control hair with natural coconut oil. Rub a small amount of oil into your hands and apply to your damp hair. Don't use too much or your hair may end up looking greasy. Shampoo your hair less frequently to minimize frizz, as excess shampooing can strip the natural oil from your hair.

          Remove excess shampoo and styling product build-up with baking soda. In a large bowl, add 3 tbsp. baking soda and mix well. After showering, rinse your hair with the baking soda and water. Allow the water and baking soda to set on your hair for at least 5 minutes before rinsing thoroughly.

          Bring life and a brilliant shine to dull hair with lemon juice. Add 1 tbsp. lemon juice to a 16 oz. bottle of water and apply to your hair after the final rinse. Do not rinse the lemon juice out; simply towel dry your hair and style as normal. If your hair is dry, use less lemon juice; if greasy, use more.
