Milk, honey and strawberries

Milk and honey also work as a natural relaxer . Take a cup of milk and add 2 tablespoons of honey. Add some strawberry puree to this mixture. Put it on your hair and keep it for at least 2 hours. Rinse well with a mild shampoo.

Eggs and olive oil

Take 2 eggs and add the olive oil and mix. Massage the scalp with this mixture. Let it act for like 1 hour or so. This will not only work as a conditioner for your hair, but it will also naturally straighten your hair .

Castor oil

Take castor oil and heat it to the highest temperature you can bear. While the oil is hot, apply it to the scalp and massage. Wrap your hair in a hot towel (soaked in warm water). Wash it after 30 minutes. Castor oil helps to straighten hair, naturally.

Rice flour and egg

Take an egg white and add 5 tablespoons of rice flour, mix it and apply it to your hair. Comb your hair and let it act for an hour. Then, rinse well with shampoo. Apply this mask on your hair once a week, for a few months.

Gel the Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a wonderful herb for your hair. All you have to do is take ½ cup of olive oil and aloe. Mix it up and apply it like a mask. It also works as a conditioner. Wash it off after 30-40 minutes. This will make your hair very shiny and straight.


Fill a spray bottle with a certain amount of organic cow’s milk. Comb the hair after shampooing. Spray milk on your hair and rinse after 30 minutes. Spray your favorite natural perfume on the comb and then comb wet hair. This will eliminate the smell of milk, but do not use too much perfume, since if it contains some alcohol, it will dry out your hair.


One of the most popular ways today to achieve a straightening, is using keratin . Keratin smoothing brings a long-range result and the method is really good at giving curly hair softness and shine. Its effect does not last only once, as is the case with straightening with the iron, but it lasts for several washes.

During keratin straightening , the external structure of the hair is wrapped and smoothed. Kratin covers the hair as a protective layer, this not only softens its structure, but also provides extra softness and shine. In addition, the hair can be styled more easily thanks to this application.

Keratin straightening is a pleasure but it can be expensive. Depending on the hairdresser, the length of the hair and the amount of hair you have, this treatment can be expensive, between 200 to 400 euros, and it can take four to five hours when the amount of hair is large. A much cheaper alternative to straightening your hair, of course, is the iron. This will keep your hair straight, but this method is not permanent.
