Straight hair never goes out of trend. While some of us have ­naturally straight locks, the rest of us have to spend a bomb trying to perfect the straight hair look. We often end up damaging the hair by using chemicals and ­excessive heat.

Here are some natural products that may not give you the poker straight effect of salon-styled hair, but will be worth your effort. Apart from saving money, you will also be nourishing your locks with these kitchen-shelf ­remedies:

Regular hot-oil treatment not only nourishes the hair but is also effective as a ­straightening technique. Massage the scalp and hair with a mixture of coconut and olive oil and cover the hair with a hot towel. Wash it off after 45 minutes with a shampoo.

Spray milk over your hair with a spray bottle and leave it on for 30 ­minutes, followed by a shampoo. Milk can work as a useful agent to straighten the hair and make them flatter.

You can also add some honey to the milk, stir it to make a textured paste and apply it on your hair. Wash off, once it has dried up. Adding mashed strawberries and bananas to the paste, too, can do ­wonders and provide hair nourishment.

Coconut has qualities that make hair softer and ­manageable. Add lemon juice to coconut milk and keep it in the refrigerator. It would form a layer of cream on top. Apply the cream to your hair and wrap your head in a hot towel and leave for about an hour. Wash off with a mild shampoo.

We have often used these two separately as hair care ­remedies, but mixing them works wonders for hair straightening. Beat two eggs and add two tablespoons of olive oil. Apply on your hair and leave it for a few hours before washing.

Use natural conditioners such as shea butter and ­avocado oil to repair and soothe your hair. You can also boil tea leaves in hot water. It’s a great conditioner for ­naturally curly hair.
