Straight hair trend has once again rewritten the hair style book. This has consequently led to a high demand in hair straightening products. Unfortunately, the harsh chemicals that are mostly used leave an unhealthy impact on your hair. Besides, some of these commercial hair products must be applied by an expert which means that you have to make constant trips to the salon. Fortunately, you may want to consider going for homemade straightening treatments.
There are a variety of homemade straightening treatments that you can opt for.
Coconut and lemon juice
Start by grating a coconut in order to extract its milk. The coconut milk contains hair straightening properties that last for the longest time. However, adding lemon juice to the milk helps you achieve better results. The mixture should be refrigerated for a few hours before it is used, to produce a creamy layer on top of the mixture.
It is actually that cream that you should apply on your hair before wrapping it using a hot towel. Let it rest on your head for at least an hour and then clean your hair using a mild shampoo, then dry it completely. The results will be totally amazing: increased softness and easy manageability of your unruly curls.

Hot oil treatment
These kinds of treatments are still considered as green hair care remedies. Besides being a deep conditioning treatment for pampering and curing damaged hair, it also has the ability to relax curly and wavy hair. Hot oil treatments also act as straighteners while providing your hair follicles with moisture.
Begin by heating the oil in a bowl, detangle your hair and then apply it on your head. Wrap your hair with a towel and then allow the oil to remain in your hair for around 15-30 minutes. Apart from adding sleekness to your hair, it will also help you hair get that natural glow. This hair care routine should be conducted once a week.
Milk and honey
Have you ever thought that you could use the honey and milk in your kitchen as a hair straightening treatment? Well, you better start thinking in that direction now. The two products contain properties that not only nourish your hair but also protects it.
Mix a teaspoon of honey with a cup of milk, mash a few strawberries and mix it with the paste. The resulting creamy paste should be applied on the hair and left for 20 minutes. This straightening treatment will not only get rid of curls but it will also be helpful to your scalp.
