Hair straightening masks
Lemon juice and coconut milk
When lemons are mixed with
The proteins in milk strengthen and soothe the hair shaft of any hair type, making it longer, stronger, and straighter. Just pour some fresh milk into a spray bottle and then spray it on to your hair all the way round, and from the root to the tip. Leave it for half an hour, rinse with cold water (or cool, if it’s cold out), then condition and rinse again with cold water.
Hot oil treatments
Hot oil treatments are one of the best ways to get rid of frizz and too much volume in big, dry hair. For glossy, straight hair, heat some coconut, olive or castor oil until it’s warm when you stick your finger in it, but not too hot. You can also try a mixture of these oils. They are very popular with celebrities right now.
Banana and papaya mask
This is a lovely quick and non-oily mask for normal hair. Use one banana and the same amount of papaya and mash them together. Add a tablespoon of honey and stir in nicely. Then simply apply this hair mask and leave it to dry without covering it. Wash it off, and enjoy your smooth hair!
Aloe gel mask
Aloe vera gel is wonderful for all hair types, but especially great for any kind of frizz or hair that’s lacking moisture. Cut two or three medium-sized leaves at the base, and put them in water overnight. Now fillet them like you would a fish! Take half a cupful of gently warmed oil and add the gel, mashing them together with a fork. Apply the mask and leave it on for half an hour or more, then shampoo and condition as normal, not forgetting your final rinse.
