Straighten your hair at home without chemicals

From childhood onwards, I have been crazy about straight hair. Straight hair is always in fashion, and the combination of a little black dress with poker straight silky hair is surreal! Hair straightening irons are an easy way to achieve straight hair, but that is not a permanent solution. But then, straightening iron and blow dryer together can give you the perfectly straight hair, as you have always wished for.

We often think of getting permanently straight hair, though “permanently straight” is just a hoax. This kind of treatments stays only for a year at the most. Also this kind of straightening process needs to use various chemicals, which in many cases can have adverse effects on the hair and scalp.

So here I am going to discuss the steps which can give you straightened hair without using chemicals.

a.      To get straight silky hair quickly and easily, before shampooing the hair, wash the hair with 1/3rd of a cup of milk

b.     Then shampoo the hair as normally you do, and then air dry the hair partially.

c.      You can also use a towel to dry the hair and keep it a bit damp. Remember your hair should be a bit damp and not totally dry.

d.     Partition your hair into 3 segments – with one segment on one side of your head, one segment in the middle, and the last segment of hair in the bottom.

e.      Take an electric dryer on one hand and a hair brush on the other hand. Blow dry one section of the hair in an even motion and then brush it. Repeat the same process for the different sections of the hair.

f.      After all sections of your hair have been dried and straightened, next take a hair straightener.

g.     Again divide your hair in sections and run the flat iron thoroughly but smoothly through all the sections of the hair.

h.     If you want the ends of the hair to be curly and polished, brush the ends of the hair of a comb and pull it outwards or inwards taut.

i.       Apply an anti-frizz serum or leave in conditioner on the hair.

j.       To finish off the hair styling, blow cool air onto the hair so that your hair styling remains intact for quite sometime.
