Apply in the shower in place of your regular conditioner, then let sit for 20 minutes before rinsing. Easy!

5. Egg, Milk & Coconut Oil Hair Mask
As a woman with curly hair, I know firsthand how obnoxious frizzy hair can be. It’s hard to make smooth with topical products because you can go from frizzy to oily in a heartbeat! Treating your hair with a hair mask is a great way to keep frizz at bay, especially when making this egg, milk and coconut oil recipe. Apply to your hair (avoid the roots!), cover with a shower cap and then warm with a hairdryer. Rinse after your hair is cooled and bye bye frizz!
