Many people that have curly hair wish it was straight, and people with straight hair want their hair to be curly. Here is one saying: we always want what we can’t have.
Most of the people do a lot when it comes to changing their hair. They use chemicals and heating tools to keep their hair straight.
Unluckily, these procedures harm the hair, leading to frizziness and even hair loss for good.
What Causes Frizz?
Curly hair is normally caused by the genetic trait that some people carry. But, a frizzy, dull and poufy curls may be a sign of damage or malnutrition.
Your hair can become dry because your scalp doesn’t have enough oil to moisturize it, or your parts lets moisture get away.
Out hair don’t have natural lubrication. It depend on oils made from the scalp to keep your curls moisturized and looking shiny. If you want your body to produce these oils, you need to get the proper nutrients.
At times, the scalp doesn’t make enough oil, which leads to dry curls (Similarly, roots in overdrive lead to an oily and greasy head.) Also, the chemicals found in hair-care products may take away your hair’s natural moisture and weaken your hair.
Because the roots are under your skin, dry scalp goes together with dry hair. Dry scalp sheds and peels, thus leading to dandruff flakes on our shoulders.
Common causes of hair damage include:
Drying your hair too often — particularly when you use alcohol-based styling products first
Using curling irons or heated straighteners, even high end products
Exposing your hair to lots of dry air, wind or sun
Having chemical treatments, like color dyes, perms, and relaxers
How To Make A Hair Straightening Mask
This mask will smooth your locks and will remove the frizz by repairing healthy oils to your scalp and hair shafts.
1 Cup coconut milk
The juice of 1 Lemon (about 4 tablespoon)
2 Tablespoon olive oil
3 Tablespoon of organic cornstarch (you can also use arrowroot powder)
Slowly mix the corn starch with the lemon juice, putting a bit at a time so that the mixture is not lumpy.
In another bowl, mix the olive oil and coconut milk.
Take a large saucepan and combine the mixtures on medium heat. Make sure you stir constantly.
When you have a similar consistency like cake batter, remove the saucepan from heat.
Leave the mixture to cool down and store in a jar with a cover.
How to use:
Put on your hair for 1-2 hours, and cover your hair with a shower cap and a hot towel.
Wash and rinse as usual.
Repeat this procedure weekly or twice-weekly for better results.
Leave the remaining mixture in the fridge to keep it longer.
Some other hair-healthy behaviors are proper nutrition, air-drying your locks, using natural shampoo and conditioner and dying your curls with henna instead of harsh chemicals.
You hair will be healthier if you don’t use so much product on your scalp!
