Straight smooth hair may be your fantasy but most of us hate the fact that we have to use chemicals to straighten it or use heat to straighten it. Both chemicals and heat damage our hair and most people also face hair fall following harsh chemical or regular styling . So, today I’m here with some natural remedies that can help you straighten your hair naturally.
How To Straighten Your Hair Naturally :
There are a few tricks that can be used to straighten your hair naturally, without using heat or chemicals. So, let’s begin:
Method 1 : Comb Your Hair Till it Dries
The easiest method to straighten your hair naturally could be to use a comb to comb your hair till it dries completely, repeating every 5 minutes. The best way to do this would be to stand before a fan and dry it , combing it till the end.
Method 2 : Using a hair Mask
hair masks and natural hair packs are great alternatives to store-bought hair masks and hair products. You can use hair masks to keep your hair looking straight and shiny , all the while nourishing it. We tell you two very popular hair masks that can be used to get great hair that’s silky smooth and straight.
- Coconut Milk – Olive oil – Lemon hair mask for naturally straight hair: In a large pan take 1 cup coconut milk and around 2 tablespoons of olive oil (extra virgin) . Then take another container and add around 4 tablespoons of lemon juice into the mixture along with around 3 tablespoon of cornstarch to make a smooth concentrated mixture. Now putting the pan on medium heat add the cornstarch mixture into the coconut milk and keep stirring until it turns into a smooth paste like your store-bought hair mask. Remove from heat and let it cool a bit before you apply it. Use a hair color application brush or pastry brush to apply the mix onto your hair and use a shower cap or warm towel to wrap your hair. For best results, use a hair dryer over low heat to blast over the towel wrapped hair so it becomes a bit warm and the hair can soak in all the nutrients. Wash off to get straight soft hair that’s shiny and feels soft to touch.
- Banana- Honey- Yogurt- Olive Oil Hair Mask to Straighten Hair Naturally : Bananas have been used since years for hair and you might have used them yourself to condition hair naturally. To make a great hair straightening mask, mash 2 or three ripe bananas depending on your hair length and volume. Mix 2/ 3 tablespoon of honey and 2/3 tablespoons of yogurt to make a paste along with 2 tablespoons of olive oil . This mix should be similar to the consistency of a conditioner. Now, apply the mixture all over your hair and then wear a shower cap. After an hour wash off the mask with warm water and a gentle shampoo.
Method 3 : Use rollers
Hair rollers (large ones) can be used to straighten hair naturally without using heat or chemicals. Wash your hair as you do usually and then section hair and use rollers to secure hair against your head. Sleep in the rollers and let dry completely to get straight hair .
So these are few simple ways to get naturally straight hair, but if you’re more interested in getting permanent solutions for your curly hair, rebonding or smoothening might be an opinion. Another option would be to use styling tools like a hair straightener, but it’s advised that you use protective sprays before you use heat tools.
