If you have wavy hair and you are tired of using a hair straightener on a daily basis, then you should learn how to straighten hair without heat. These simple tricks will make you forget about chemicals or heat that damage your hair. Having straight hair is very convenient and stylish. However, sometimes, to obtain the perfect hairstyle, you need to sacrifice its health and strength.
Chemical straighteners and straightening tools can split the ends of your hair and dry it out. Therefore, your hair will be straight, but it will also look like a nightmare. Thus, you should try using natural methods to have straight strands.
Wrap your hair while it’s wet
Wash your hair and comb it while it’s still wet. Divide your hair into two sections, comb it again and then wrap one section over the other at the back of your head. Secure it with bobby pins. Let your hair dry. You can also use a silk scarf to wrap this new hairstyle. When your hair is completely dry, unpin it and comb it again. Your straight hair will look amazing.
Brush wet hair
First, wash your hair and let it dry. Every five minutes, make sure you brush your hair until it is completely dry. Make sure you divide your hair into sections when brushing it. Hold each section while brushing. This method will help you straighten your hair naturally, without adding chemical straightening solutions. If you brush your hair in front of a fan, it will have even more visible results. It may sound crazy, but it is not crazy if it works.
Roll your hair
Take some large hair rollers similar in size with some soda cans. Split your hair into sections. Make sure your hair is still wet when doing this. Then, start rolling your hair on hair rollers and secure your hair tightly against your head. Let it dry completely. Otherwise, the moisture will trigger the curl to come back.
Twist your hair
If your natural hair is nearly straight, then twisting your hair into a bun might work. However, if you have wavy hair, this technique will definitely make it even wavier. Make sure your hair is still damp. Then, make a ponytail and twist it. Wrap it around itself to obtain a bun. Use an elastic to secure it. After your hair is completely dry, brush it out.
Use hair hands
Divide your hair into two low ponytails. Use soft elastics to secure your ponytails. Then, add more elastics down your ponytails. However, make sure they are all loose to avoid noticeable marks on your hair. Sleep with your hair like this, and in the morning you can let it out. Your hair will remain straight.
A milk and honey mask can help you straighten your hair naturally. You will need:
- 1 cup coconut milk or whole milk
- 1 tablespoon honey
Mix these ingredients and let the mixture soak into your scalp and hair for an hour. Next, wash your hair, and you will notice that it will be a lot more straight than its natural form.
You can try another straightening mask, applying it twice per week for two months to obtain the best results. You will need:
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 5-6 tablespoon lemon juice
- 3 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 cup coconut milk
Mix these ingredients, heat them at low temperature and stir. When it cools down, apply this mixture on your hair. Let it soak into your hair for an hour and then wash it off.
