Ways to Straighten Hair Naturally For Men - smartesthairstyles.com - If you have curly or wavy hair and want to change your look, you may have thought about straightening your hair. Unfortunately, some chemical hair straighteners contain harmful chemicals like sulfur that can damage your hair's health and make it even frizzier over time. Luckily, you can use a milk and honey spray, a castor and soybean oil blend, a celery leaf extract, and combing methods to naturally and safely get rid of your curls. These all-natural, no-heat solutions relax your hair, but must be done daily if you want to keep your hair straight.
- Using a milk and honey spray
Mix together 1/2 cup (120 ml) milk and 1/2 cup (120 ml) water. Mix the ingredients in an empty spray bottle so you can easily apply the mixture to your hair. You can use cow milk, almond milk or coconut milk for the solution. Shake the spray bottle vigorously to incorporate the ingredients.
This method relaxes slightly wavy hair, but does not straighten tangled or very curly hair.
Milk contains vitamin E and proteins that strengthen and smooth your hair.
Pour a tablespoon of honey into the bottle. Add the honey to the solution and shake the spray bottle again to mix the honey with the milk. Honey gives your hair a natural shine.
A drop of coconut or almond oil can also be helpful in reducing frizz.
Spray the solution on your hair. Wet your hair thoroughly with the milk and water solution, making sure to spritz both the roots and ends of your hair strands. Work the solution into the scalp with your fingertips.
Comb your hair straight. Comb from the hair root to the hair shaft and work the milk and honey solution into your hair. If you have wavy hair, you should see the strands straighten out. If you have frizzy or curly hair, the solution will make your hair look healthier, but it may not remove your curls.
Leave the solution in your hair for 30 minutes. The vitamins and nutrients in the blend will begin to soften and smooth your hair. You may want to cover your head with a shower cap or wrap a towel around your shoulders to keep the solution from dripping on you.
Wash out the solution with cold water. Be sure to rinse your hair well and remove any milk or honey that has been drawn in. Leaving the solution in your hair can create an unpleasant odor as it dries.
Comb your hair and let it dry. Using a wide-toothed comb, comb your hair while it's still wet. Get out all the knots and curls as you brush it. You can then let your hair air dry or blow dry it for a more finished look.
Be careful not to blow dry your hair too often as heat styling tools can damage your hair.
- Straighten hair with castor and soybean oil
Mix castor oil with soybean oil in a bowl. Measure 2 tablespoons (29.5 mL) castor oil with 1 tablespoon (14.7 mL) soybean oil and mix the two oils until well incorporated. Castor oil helps reduce frizz in your hair, and soybean oil helps smooth strands.
Some companies make all-natural castor oil creams that are specifically designed to straighten hair. You can find these products online, in salons, or at a department store hair salon.
Heat the oil slightly. Pour the oil into a pan and heat until warm, or microwave the mixture for no more than 5-10 seconds. As the oil warms up, it becomes less viscous and easier to handle.
Rub the oil into your hair and scalp. Apply some of the warm oil to your palms. Run your fingers through your hair to spread the oil over your scalp and hair. Make sure to cover each strand so your hair straightens evenly.
Apply enough oil so that your strands become saturated with the oil, but don't overdo it and drench your hair with oil or your hair will look greasy.
Cover your hair with a damp towel and wait 30 minutes. Dampen your towel with warm water. Wrap your head in a warm, damp towel to allow the oils to penetrate your hair follicles.
flush out the oil. When you leave the oil in your hair for 30 minutes, untie the towel you wrapped around your head. Your hair should already look straighter. Hold your head under cold water, making sure to remove as much excess oil as possible.
Comb your hair and let it air dry. Use a wide-toothed comb to remove any knots and tangles from your hair. Your hair should now be much smoother than when you started.
Do not use a towel to dry your hair, otherwise it may frizz and frizz.
- Using Celery Leaf Extract
Finely chop 10-12 celery leaves. Buy some celery at the grocery store and chop the leaves from the stalks. Use a food processor to chop until a celery paste forms.
The nutrients in celery help smooth and improve the health of your hair.
Combine the celery juice and 1/4 cup (59 mL) water in a spray bottle. Pour the celery extract into a spray bottle, then add the water and shake the bottle. This is the solution you use to straighten your hair. To avoid clogging, you can filter the solution with a muslin cloth before pouring it into the spray bottle.
Leave the solution on overnight. As the solution sits, the water and celery extract will mix and should thicken. Once the solution is a bit thick, you can use it.
Spray the solution on your hair. Saturate all of your hair. Keep spraying until your head is wet with the solution.
Brush your hair with a wide-toothed comb. Concentrate on the knots and curls as you brush your hair. Keep brushing your hair until it looks straight.
Leave the solution in your hair for 30 minutes. Wrap a towel around your shoulders to keep your wet hair from dripping on you. As you sit there, the nutrients from the solution will soak into your hair.
Wash out the solution with cold water. Run cold water through your hair and wash it out with your hands. Agitate your hair with your fingers and continue rinsing until all of the celery solution is washed out of your hair.
Allow your hair to air dry. Do not use a towel to dry your hair, otherwise it may become frizzy and not straight. Instead, let your hair air dry. You can keep brushing your hair as it dries to keep it from frizzing.
A t-shirt can be a gentle alternative to drying your hair with a towel.
- Straighten your hair while it dries
Brush your hair straight while it dries. After you get out of the shower, brush your hair with a wide-toothed comb every five minutes. When your hair dries, it should dry smoother than if you just let it air dry.
If you want to dry your hair faster, you can sit in front of a fan.
Wrap your head in a towel. While your hair is still wet, comb it back and secure with bobby pins. Then wrap your hair with a towel. This reduces frizz and is especially useful if you want to straighten your hair before going to sleep.
Roll your hair into big curlers. If you have longer hair, you can put your hair in curlers to straighten it. Find the biggest hair rollers available at a salon and roll your hair in them after you get out of the shower. When you pull out the curlers, you should have straighter hair.
