We love styling our hair every now and then, especially straightening them to achieve celeb-like silky, smooth hair. But regular use of heat styling tools can cause major damage and ruin the quality of your mane too. But fret not; you can give your beloved heat styling tool some rest, for we have found a perfect solution to straighten your hair at home naturally. We’re talking about hair masks! Read on for five hair masks to get straight hair at home naturally.
- 1. Olive oil and egg mask
- 2. Banana and curd mask
- 3. TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask
- 4. Banana and papaya mask
- 5. Rice flour and egg mask
1. Olive oil and egg mask
While the protein and vitamin-enriched egg help smoothen and moisturise your tresses, the olive oil in this mask will help condition them. This hair mask will help make your hair frizz-free, soft and naturally straight.
- 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 eggs
Beat the two ingredients together completely, and then apply it all over your hair. Let the mask sit for about an hour before washing it off with a mild shampoo.
2. Banana and curd mask
This hair mask is a treat for your hair. With highly conditioning ingredients in its mix, this mask is similar to the deep conditioning treatments you pay for at salons. Applying this hair mask once or twice a week can help make your hair frizz-free, straight and strong from the roots.
- 2 overripe bananas
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon curd
Start off by mashing your bananas until completely smooth. Then, add the other three ingredients and whisk them nicely. Once done, apply the mix to your hair and let it sit there for 30 minutes. Follow this by shampooing your hair and rinsing it off with cold water.
3. TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask
For lazy bums like us who’d rather not go through the entire process of whipping up their own hair masks and sitting for another hour for it to work its magic, we have the perfect solution for you — the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask. This mask straightens your hair, makes them frizz-free, easy to detangle and extremely soft and shiny, without any hassle *happy sigh*! All you gotta do is shampoo your hair, apply this hair mask generously from mid-length to ends and let it stay on for 3-5 minutes. Wash away with cold water, and voila! You get gorgeous, straight and shiny hair.
4. Banana and papaya mask
Bananas and papaya together have the power to strengthen, hydrate, moisturise and condition your hair. So, apply this hair mask once a week, and you’ll notice your tresses turn soft, straight and lustrous with regular use.
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 piece of papaya
Keep in mind that you’d need equal proportions of both these ingredients. Blend them well together to make a paste and apply it directly to your hair. Let it stay for half an hour before washing it off with a shampoo.
5. Rice flour and egg mask
This hair mask will work not only to straighten your tresses but also to clarify your scalp and clean off all the build-up and dirt. Furthermore, it will help repair your damaged hair and make it soft and frizz-free.
- 4-5 tablespoons rice flour
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 egg white
- 1 cup fuller’s earth (Multani mitti)
Mix the ingredients together to make a fine paste and apply it all over your hair. Let the hair mask stay for about an hour. Shampoo and rinse with cold water.
