While hair straightening at the parlor might dig a deep hole in your pocket, opting for natural hair straightening options might work wonders not just on your hair but finances too.

Hair straightening is the latest craze today. Gone are the days of wavy or permed hair. A straight and shiny mane is what one loves to flash, as it’s beautiful and manageable. While professional hair straightening options are way too expensive and loaded with chemicals; some in house kitchen remedies help solve the problem wonderfully well.

You will be surprised to know how some natural products can get you the much longed for, straight look for your hair, without damaging their texture, length or thickness. All one needs to do is a tiny bit of effort and see the results; as week after week your hair grows shinier, smoother and much straighter.

Straight hair trivia:
  • Straightening irons should be used sparingly as they can be damaging for hair.
  • Using less of shampoo and more of conditioner also helps tame that mane.
  • Off the shelf hair straightening products do not work well if you are a regular swimmer; thanks to chlorine water.
  • Combing your hair after applying conditioner and before washing it off helps keep hair straight and tangle free.
  • Avoid rubbing the hair dry, squeezing out excess water is always the best way.
  • Make hot oil massages for hair a habit.
  • Adding a few drops of rose water to your milk spray will keep any unwanted odors at bay.

Here are a few tried and tested tricks to tame that mane:

Quick spray of milk:

Surprised? Well milk works wonders on your hair when you need a fast way to straighten your frizzy looking hair. What you need is a pump dispenser full of one third cup of milk. First of all, wash and dry your hair. Next, give them a nice spray of milk and let it stay for 20 minutes. Rinse well and comb out your hair as they dry. Now enjoy the shiny straight look!

Honey and strawberries for your hair:

The sweetness of this combination grows many folds when you find it gently nourishing and straightening your stubbornly frizzy mane within hours of application. All you need is a cup of milk added to a spoon of honey and a couple of strawberries. Churn them up to get a smooth paste. Apply this paste on your hair and scalp two hours before washing your hair. For, once you do, you’ll find a deeply nourished and smoothly textured mane; one you’ll love to flaunt.

Hot oil works here too:

Yes, the age old remedy to all hair problems works in straightening hair too. Oil not only promotes hair growth, keeps hair nourished and hydrated; but also eases out the unwanted curls and waves from your hair. For best results oil and massage your hair well for about 15-20 minutes before a head bath and keep them wrapped in a hot towel for the same time. Now wash your hair off and see them shine as they look sleeker than before. Here are the oily combinations you can use:

  • Coconut oil mixed with hibiscus petals.
  • A tea spoon of soybean oil mixed with two teaspoons of castor oil.
  • Half a cup of olive oil with the same measure of rosemary leaves.

Coconut milk as hair cream:

To get that sleek and shiny look for your hair, there could be no better nourishment than that of coconut milk. If you can get it fresh there’s nothing better. Take a glass full of coconut milk and juice of one full lemon. Mix them well and leave the mixture to cool in the refrigerator for half an hour. When you take it out now, you have with you your wonder hair cream!

Apply this cream all over your hair and scalp and cover it with a hot water soaked towel. Let it stay for 15 minutes and then wash away with a mild shampoo. You’ll find your hair get the clinic treated look, basking in all their glory.

Do not forget that all these above remedies will only show better and better results, when used week after week. So a little bit of effort and some patience is sure to get you the great looking, well nourished and fabulously straight hair, you so desire.
