Blow dry:
One of the best tip for straight hair is to blow dry. As hair dries, it tends to curl up. This is a direct result of the water content and the chemical bonds existing in the hair fiber proteins. If you can hold your hair straight with a comb and blow dry it, it will hold that position and get straight.

Home Remedies To Straight Your Hair

Coconut Milk:
Apply fresh coconut milk regularly. Bathing with coconut milk is known to straighten your hair because coconut milk contains nutrients that can straighten your hair. Apply the coconut milk after your last rinsing and leave it on the hair for at least 5 minutes. After this, you may rinse your hair with water only. Do not use shampoo or soap as these can take away the nutrients from coconut milk.

Coconut Milk and Lemon Juice:
Pour eight ounces of coconut milk into a cup or a glass. Add in the juice of one full lemon. Make a mixture and  before getting your hair wet apply the cream to your hair. Wrap your hair in a towel for about an hour and then wash your hair like your normally would. If you use this method three times a week, your hair should straighten gradually over time.

Castor Oil:
Castor oil is another effective substance that you can apply to make your hair straight. After bathing, generously apply castor oil to your hair then dry it with the use of hair dryer.

Milk, Honey and Strawberries:
Use one cup of milk and add in a few drops of honey. Mash up a few strawberries and add them to the mixture. Apply this to your hair making sure you get every piece of hair that you can and wrap your hair in a towel for about two hours. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo as you normally do. Brush your hair using a wide toothed comb and blow dry your hair. This would help you get straight hair.

Soy Bean Oil:
Oil treatment is most effective as it conditions your hair and helps it stay hydrated. You can use one teaspoon of soy bean oil and two teaspoons of castor oil.  You can also combine half a cup of dried rosemary leaves and half a cup of olive oil and heat it over a low flame. Strain and apply on your scalp and hair. Leave on for 30 minutes and wash off with a shampoo and cover with a towel and dry.
