Want to know how to straighten your hair at home without all those chemicals? Why damage your hair when you can do it the natural way and get similar results, right?
Let’s get to the recipe and then look at more about the ingredients and the whys, shall we?
Egg – 1
Fenugreek – 1 Tbsp.
Coconut Oil – 1 Tbsp.
Yogurt – 12 Tsps.
Grind fenugreek seeds into coarse powder. Boil it in 4 Cups of water and when it reduces to 1/3rd, set aside.
Beat the egg together with yogurt and coconut oil until the consistency is smooth and even. I usually beat the egg first and then add coconut oil and yogurt and beat again.
Now, apply a few drops of coconut oil to your hair and scalp lightly. This helps if your hair or scalp is dry. I apply Argan oil as it less greasy.
Now, you prepared the fenugreek concoction right? Apply that on your hair and scalp and use a shower cap to cover your head. I usually let it sit for only about 20 – 30 minutes; though you can leave it up to one hour, if you don’t have cold or sinus related issues. Those with excess heat body an even let it sit for two hours, as fenugreek has cooling properties.
After 20 minutes or whatever duration you have chosen for fenugreek, apply the egg mixture you have prepared to your hair. Let it sit for 15 – 20 minutes.
Wash your hair with a mild herbal shampoo. The quantity of shampoo required will be lesser than usual.
Use lukewarm or tepid water to wash your hair and follow-up with cold water. Air dry.
Why This Method?
It is natural and though it doesn’t straighten your hair like salons, you can get fairly straightened hair without adding loads of chemicals to your hair and scalp.
Besides, these ingredients nourish your hair and scalp and with regular use, you will notice your hair growth rate would have increased, your hair grows out longer, hair fall is curbed and also, your hair will be stronger. This also improves hair elasticity and curbs few scalp problems. A win-win right?
How Often Can This be Done?
I do this once a week for my wavy hair, though you can do it twice a week if needed.
