How to Naturally Straighten Your Hair?

What not you try to straighten hair at home, like wrapping your wet hair, using rollers or hair bands overnight, or twisting your hair into a bun. And you get results too, but not permanent. Right? So, why not try the hair masks mentioned below made by using the natural ingredients of your kitchen to get permanently straight hair. So, read on and dive deeper into the procedures to make them!

1. Flaxseeds


Flaxseeds have Vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids, which soothe, promote hair growth, protect your scalp from free radicals and also help reduce inflammation. And as flax seeds are rich in protein, it gives your hair a straighter texture. You can also add other nutrient-rich ingredients with flaxseeds to enjoy more benefits.

To use it on hair, take a glass of water in a deep container or a saucepan and add 1/4 cup of flax seeds. And then boil the mix for around 5 to 7 minutes, and using a sieve, strain out the thick liquid.

Let it cool down and then add 2 tsp olive oil or coconut oil and mix well. The jelly-like mixture will be ready to apply to the hair and roots, and after that, nicely shampoo and condition your hair and repeat the process twice a week to get naturally straight hairs.

Milk and lemon

You can use it as a conditioner by pouring 1/4 cup of milk in a spray bottle. And then, saturate your hair entirely with milk spray, and in 30 minutes, rinse with cold water.

Or use lemon with coconut milk or raw milk to see more effective and quick results as lemon has Vitamin C and is acidic, which helps restore the acid-alkaline balance of the scalp, resulting in straight hair. And with milk, lemon acts as one of the best creamy conditioners to help straighten your hair.

Make a paste of 1/4 cup coconut milk and 1 tbsp lemon juice at night and keep it in the refrigerator. Apply it to your roots and hair in the morning and wash away in 30 minutes using shampoo. We used coconut milk instead of raw milk because it will help give shine along with straightening hair.
