15 ways to get straight hair naturally

You don’t have to be born with naturally straight hair to have it

 

People with curly or wavy hair are not always happy with it, especially on humid days when their hair frizzes out, and either go for a harsh chemical straightening at the salon or sit back and curse their genes. Why do that when you have so many natural options to choose from which you can do yourself at home? Here are a few suggestions which might not give you salon-treated straight hair, but more natural looking straighter hair than before. Try them to see which suit you best, and have healthy and straight hair all the time!

 

1. Coconut milk with lemon juice treatment

 

Mix a quarter cup of coconut milk with one table spoon of lemon juice and refrigerate it overnight. When you wake up, apply this to your hair in the direction from the roots to the tips. Leave it on for about half an hour before washing off with cold water and a mild shampoo that is free of sulfate. Repeat once a week for best results.

 

2. Milk spray treatment

Spray your hair to saturation with milk in a spray bottle. Leave it on for about half an hour before washing it off with cold water. Repeat twice a week for best results.

 

3. Warm castor oil and coconut oil treatment

Mix the two oils while warm and apply it not just to your hair but your scalp as well. Once saturated, start gently massaging your scalp for about fifteen minutes. Now leave it on for about half an hour before washing it off with cold water and a mild shampoo that is free of sulfate. Repeat twice a week for best results.

 

4. Milk and honey treatment

Mix a quarter cup of milk with two table spoons of honey well. Completely cover your hair with this mix. Leave it on for two hours before washing off with cold water and a mild shampoo that is free of sulfate. Repeat once a week for best results.

 

5. Eggs and olive oil treatment

Whisk two eggs with three table spoons of olive oil till they have completely blended. Apply this into your hair. Leave it for about one hour before washing off with cold water and a mild shampoo that is free of sulfate. Repeat once a week for best results.

 

6. Eggs, rice flour, fuller’s earth and milk treatment

Mix the white of one egg with five table spoons of rice flour, one cup of fuller’s earth and a quarter cup of milk. More milk can be added if it is still too thick to apply, and more fuller’s earth if it is too thin. Cover your hair completely with it. Leave it on for about one hour before washing off with cold water and a mild shampoo that is free of sulfate. Repeat once a week for best results.

 

7. Warm coconut oil and aloe vera treatment

Mix a quarter cup each of coconut oil and aloe vera gel while still warm. Apply this to your hair. Leave it for about an hour before washing off with cold water and a mild shampoo that is free of sulfate. Repeat once a week for best results.

 

8. Banana and papaya treatment

Make a paste of equal parts of banana and papaya. A blender will help make a smoother paste. Apply this on your hair. Leave it on till it dries before washing off with cold water and a mild shampoo that is free of sulfate. Repeat once a week for best results.

 

9. Apple cider vinegar and water treatment

 

Dilute two table spoons of apple cider vinegar in one cup of water and keep it aside. Now wash your hair in cold water and a mild shampoo that is free of sulfate. Condition your hair like you normally do. Now use the diluted apple cider vinegar as a final rinse. Repeat once a week for best results.

 

10. Banana, honey, olive oil and curd treatment

Mash two ripe bananas in two tablespoons each of honey, olive oil and curd and apply this smooth blend to your hair. Leave it on till for about half an hour before washing off with cold water and a mild shampoo that is free of sulfate. Repeat once a week for best results.

 

And here are some techniques free of any ingredients

 

11. Brushing technique

Wash your hair like you normally do and then let it dry by itself. While it is drying naturally, run a brush through your hair every five minutes while holding out and stretching at each stroke for a few seconds.

 

12. Rolling technique

Wash your hair like you normally do. Get yourself some huge rollers, the bigger the better, and tightly roll up your wet hair in sections and secure them to the top of your head. Let it dry naturally and completely before taking the rollers off.

 

13. Wrapping technique

Wash your hair like you normally do. While your hair is still wet, comb it out with a parting of your choice. Now comb the right part of your hair over to your left tightly and wrap it around the back. Do the reverse with the other side. Pin it in place at the back. Let it dry naturally before unpinning it.

 

14. Hair band technique

Dampen your hair at night before going to bed. Make ponytails using hair bands with the hair bands being used at intervals of an inch down the length of the ponytails. Do not tie the bands too tightly or they will leave a mark. Go to sleep and open the bands in the morning.

 

15. Bun technique

If you have long hair, wash your hair out like you normally do. Let it dry naturally till damp to the touch. Now make a twisted ponytail and tie it to the back of your head in a bun with elastic. Let it dry completely before brushing it out.
