➤ If you wish to maintain a good hair texture overall, then regular hot oil massages can help to nourish, strengthen, and condition your hair. Mix coconut or olive oil with few drops of rosemary oil and massage your scalp with it. Then wrap your head with a warm towel, keep the towel for 15 minutes, and then shampoo your hair.
➤ To achieve maximum straightening, use hair straightening shampoos and then wash your hair clean. If you want you can also use a straightening conditioner. Leave it in the hair for two minutes and then wash your hair.
➤ If you don't have a conditioner, then with some natural ingredients you can condition your hair and make them look straight. Prior to shampooing your hair, do this step. Take 3 - 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise and then slowly massage your scalp with it for 5 minutes, and then cover the rest of the hair with mayo and then wash the hair with a straightening shampoo.
➤ Once you are done washing your hair, there are two ways to get straight hair. Either you can blow dry your hair or you can use a straightening iron. Straightening irons have longer lasting effect, so they are recommended.
➤ Use a hair serum, as it will not just keep your hair straight for longer, but also protect it while ironing it. Before straightening your hair, take a hair serum and generously apply it on the hair, covering the entire hair. Keep some hair clips handy. Divide your hair into different sections and secure these sections using the hair clips.
Now take a good quality professional hair straightening flat iron and start straightening the different sections of your hair. A quality professional hair straightening iron is recommended, as the heat penetrates the hair shaft and gives a long-lasting effect.
➤ Once you are done straightening your hair, style your hair in the usual hairstyle you wear. Then use a hairspray. Hairspray will make your hair a little stiff, but will help to keep the hair straight for longer.
