How to Straighten Your Hair without Heat or Chemicals
If you want to straighten hair naturally at home with natural remedies, then rejoice because there is a number of natural, permanent hair straightening products at home like homemade hair masks that are a great alternative to artificial treatment methods which can end up causing a lot of damage to your hair in the long-run.
There is a lot of natural hair straightening tips at home in addition to ironing. A word of caution on ironing; while this method can be temporarily useful, it can make your hair rough and brittle in the long run.
#Honey and Milk
While milk alone is one of the best permanent hair straightening products at home, using it in conjunction with honey simply does wonders. Both honey and milk are natural hair straightening agents that not only soften and nourish your hair, but also prevent it from external damage and also preventing hair split ends.
Just pour a small teaspoon of honey to one cup of milk and mix the paste with some mashed strawberries.
Rub this paste on your hair, leave on for a couple of hours, and then rinse off with a shampoo. Don’t forget to straighten your strands using the comb when your hair is dry.
#Hair straightening creams
Luckily, you can get a lot of natural and organic hair straightening creams which can be safely applied on your hair. After doing that, make sure that you comb your hair from the roots all the way up to your strands.
Alternately, you can also brush your hair after applying the cream and conditioning your hair in the shower.
In either case, it is important to start combing the hair from the root tip. While this method may take some time to take effect, the results are well worth the wait.
Extract some coconut milk and keep it in the refrigerator for an hour. Carefully collect the milk cream after whisking it for some time and mix it with a little quantity of lemon juice.
Prepare a thick paste and apply on your hair. Seal it with some plastic cover for 30-45 minutes and then rinse off thoroughly using a shampoo and conditioner.
Not only will your hair feel much straighter, they would also become much shinier and well-moisturized.
Applying olive on the scalp and covering the hair with a warmish towel is also a great way to straighten your hair.
While covering, do ensure that you let it soak for half an hour or so. Then rinse your hair and comb it while it’s wet. It is a good idea to repeat the process 2-3 times a week. You can replace olive oil with castor oil too.
