Get your sexy look on with naturally straight hair! While most beauty salons offer quick yet expensive ways to straighten your hair, there are better ways to do it yourself! These do-it-yourself steps are easy and free. You will have straight hair naturally in no time. All you need is some affordable hair products and additional natural ingredients you most likely have already in your kitchen. We promise you no chemicals, no steaming, and no damage to your precious hair. As you’re all set, let’s get “straight” to it then!
1. Rinse your hair with cold water
A long, hot shower is nice and proven to be therapeutic. However, if you want to have more natural straight hair, you need to make a little sacrifice. Rinsing your hair with cold water instead of hot helps it stay neat and straight. You can still enjoy your hot shower, though. Take as long as you need it. But when it comes to rinsing your hair, turn it down and switch to cold water. If you can’t stand the cold, you can also use the sink.
2. Use comb instead of brush on your wet or moisturized hair
Big classic hairbrush does do its job quickly. However, this type of brush is not suitable for frizzy hair. And it’s certainly not helping your cause in straightening your hair naturally. Switch to a wide-tooth comb. It does take more time to comb instead of to brush your hair. But the result awaits will be worth it!
3. Roll your hair up after a shower
Blowing hot air into your hair makes it easier to get frizzy. So, if you’re not in a rush, let your hair dry naturally after a shower. Better yet, roll your hair while it is still wet. Divide your hair into several layers. Then, roll each layer up and wait until your hair dries naturally. Using the right size of rollers is crucial, though. The bigger, the better! We recommend using large rollers with the same diameter as a regular can soup.
4. Hydrate and moisturize your hair with a leave-in conditioner
For naturally straight hair, just shampoo is not enough. On your next grocery run, don’t forget to get a hair conditioner as well. Not just any conditioner, though! Get leave-in conditioner specially made for your type of hair. The Leave-in conditioner does not require rinsing. After shampooing, rinse your hair clean and leave it half dry. Apply leave-in conditioner thoroughly. Then, wait for it to do its magic. Well-hydrated hair will not get frizzy easily. See the real difference in two weeks of daily moisturizing!
5. Keep brushing your hair until it dries
Simpler yet with a little more effort, this is something you can do right now, after you take a shower, of course. While your hair is still wet, keep combing it until it dries out. This will stop your hair from frizzing up as it dries out. Since this will take some time, we recommend you do it while watching a movie or catching up with the latest series online.
6. Wrap your wet hair tightly and let it dry
If brushing continuously sounds too tedious, we have something else for you. All you have to do is wrap your wet hair with a towel and let it dry naturally. What makes this different from the usual business is adding a little more tightness to the wrapping. Make sure they’re nice and tight!
