Well, we have heard that different herb oils are used in various hair and body spa procedures. But, using them in their raw form can work wonders for your frizzy hair. So, moisturise your hair with herbs like chamomile, rose geranium, rose (READ: Beauty Benefits Of Rose), lavender, cedarwood, calendula, burdock, and sandalwood. They soften the hair cuticles and straighten your hair, and are easily available in the market. Just make a solution by boiling five teaspoons of at least five of them in two cups of water. Let the mixture cool down, and then add a tablespoon of vinegar to it. Replace this liquid with your conditioner. Do not rinse your hair off after applying it, instead use it as a leave-in conditioner.
Every grandmother would have passed on this piece of advice to their granddaughters, but sadly very few follow it religiously. So, it is time you pay heed to her advice and start oiling your hair regularly. Instead of using one type of oil (READ: Oils That Will Give You Straight And Shiny Hair), you can combine two or three of them for beautiful straight hair. Mix coconut oil, olive oil and almond oil together, and massage it on your scalp gently. Wrap a hot towel once you are through with the massage. Wash it off after 45 minutes and you will be surprised to see sleek, shiny and straight hair.
Though these treatments straighten your hair, their results are not as instant as a salon. For visible results, you will have to follow them regularly for at least a month. But all said and done, you can vouch for them as they are much better than artificial salon treatments.
So, say goodbye to the expensive beauty salons and their products, and straighten your hair in the comfort of your home.
