Coconut Milk And Lemon Juice For Natural Straight Hair

I have read about coconut milk and how  effective it is to make hair naturally straight or relaxed on numerous forum so  thought of giving it a try.My hair are are wavy from  end and I generally straighten them with a hair dryer when semi wet.Now when I got them coloured I wanted to reduce my usage of the heat machine and thought of opting for a natural method .Anyway, I have a habit of switching back to natural home remedies often Grinuh:

My experience with coconut  milk and lemon juice relaxer.

I have been using this since two weeks and I have  managed to achieved a noticeable difference in my hair .Frizz has reduced to a good level, hair are softer and smoother and with continuous application of this hair pack my hair are getting better day by day .I believe that this pack is going to work amazingly well on those who have slight wavy hair and it’s a good solution for frizzy hair too.

So here goes the recipe .It’s simple but needs an effort Smile

Take a small pack of coconut milk and empty it in a container.I used the market one because the one which is made at home is lighter in consistency and I didn’t want milk pouring on to my face and clothes.I use a smallest pack which is easily available in any super market in India.

Squeeze in two -three lemon juice in it and keep the mixture in the refrigerator for minimum of four hours.I like to keep the mixture overnight though.

After few hours you will find the mixture having a thick layer which looks like curd.Apply the mixture in section and cover your hair including the scalp.As the mixture gets thick when kept overnight it doesn’t pour out much from my hair.

Cover it with a plastic cap and keep  the mixture for minimum of half an hour or  forty- five minutes.If you can give steam of hot towel then it will show more  result but I stopped doing it in between  .Too much of a hassle !!  Razz

After keeping the mixture for half an hour shampoo and condition the hair thoroughly and rinse off the mixture.

Pack does add shine to hair, make hair dandruff and frizz free and will make them look straight Smile

I have used this pack twice a week and can’t keep my hands away from my hair Grin.As this is a naturaly straightener therefore it’s not going to make your hair poker straight but  will give them a natural relaxed  look  in the long run.As coconut deeply moisturize my hair and relax it  I now  need just medium heat unlike high before to make my hair look poker straight.

Have you used coconut milk for  your hair ?
