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 the 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. :duh:

My experience with coconut milk and lemon juice relaxer.

I have been using this since two weeks and I have managed to achieve a noticeable difference in my hair. Frizz has reduced to a good level, hair is softer and smoother and with continuous application of this hair pack, my hair is 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 🙂

Take a small pack of coconut milk and empty 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 onto my face and clothes. I use a small pack which is easily available in any supermarket in India.

Squeeze in two -three lemon juice in it and keep the mixture in the refrigerator for a 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 a 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 !!  😛

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 🙂

I have used this pack twice a week and can’t keep my hands away from my hair. 😀 As this is a naturally 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 moisturise my hair and relax it  I now need just medium heat unlike high before to make my hair look poker straight.
