Is your hair turning jagged and frizzed after using heat straighteners? It’s time to avoid using those evils that harm your beautiful hair over time. Instead, there are healthier alternate ways to wheedle your hair into the grace you want.
Straight hair is modish, beautiful, and suitable, especially for cold days. Luckily there are some other procedures for boosting curly or wavy hair to straighten out naturally, without using heat or chemicals.
1. Twist Hair Into A Bun
If you have honestly compliant, straight-ish hair to begin with, then this process will likely work for you, though it’s not real on inflexibly wavy hair.
Make a ponytail of moist hair and twist like a rope. Wrap around itself to make a bun and lock with an elastic. Let air dry, then brush out.
2. Roll Your Hair
Use large hair rollers, i.e. the size of soda cans, to roll sections of wet hair and lock them tightly against your head. Let dry completely. This is important because the slightest bit of moisture can make the curl or wave come back.
3. Brush Wet Hair Until It Dries
After washing your hair, let it air dry totally, but continue to brush it every five minutes. Pull out and hold each division of hair for a few seconds to embolden it to straighten out. You can also do this in front of a fan, which is faster but requires continuous brushing.
4. Wrap Wet Hair Tightly
When your hair is damp, comb and divide it down the centre. Comb the left division all the way over to the right and cape around the back of your head, locking with bobby pins. Flip the right division over the left side, cape, and pin in the same way. Let it air dry totally. You can wrap in a silk scarf and sleep on it to lessen crimp.
5. Make A Natural Straightening Mask
Beauty blog recommends making a milk and honey mask.
- Mix 1 cup of whole milk or coconut milk with 1 tbsp. of honey and let it soak into your hair and scalp for one hour before washing out.
- You can also mix 2 cups milk with 1 egg. Soak your hair in it for 10 minutes, then squeeze out, don’t rinse, and wrap with a plastic cover for another 30 minutes. Wash out and brush dry.
To all of these methods, add a few drops of sweet almond or coconut oil to tame frizz and smooth out the look.
6. Use Overnight Hair Hands
Split damp hair into one or two low ponytails. Affix with a soft hair elastic, then add extra elastics every inch or so down the ponytail, in order to hold it unruffled. Make sure the elastics are fairly loose so that they won’t leave a visible mark on your hair. Go to sleep and let it out in the morning and then you get to see bouncy straight hair.
Now that you know how to naturally straighten your hair at home, what are you waiting for? With these home therapies, you can say ta-ta to curled hair and welcome straighter, softer, and healthier hair.
