Relaxing The Curls
If you have curly hair, then you might get tired of seeing the waves or the tighter curls that seem to spring up out of nowhere. Fortunately, there are some things that you can do to have the straight hair that you want, giving you a different look during the week. Salons often have items like Vitale Pro Relaxer that can quickly relax the curls so that they aren’t as noticeable. Most of these products are safe to use on a regular basis when you’re wanting to change the appearance of the hair.
Olive oil is an ingredient that is found in some conditioners. It’s what helps to give your hair the softness that you feel. You can blend a bit of plain conditioner with no additives with a small amount of olive oil for a natural relaxer. Another option is to use olive oil on the hair instead of using conditioner at all. You will need to use a little more than you would if you were using conditioner, but it will make the hair shiny, smooth and soft. You can also heat olive oil before putting it on the hair as a relaxer.
An idea that might sound like more of a dessert instead of something to use on the hair is fillo dough. Combine half a cup of lemon juice, caramel and honey in a bowl. Apply the mixture to your curls before wrapping your hair in the dough. Let everything sit for about 30 minutes. Shampoo the hair as you normally would after removing the dough.
One of the easiest ways to relax your curls is to spray the hair with whole milk. Let the milk sit on the hair for about 20 minutes before washing. This is a good idea to use with a product that you get at a salon as they can work together to give you the straight hair that you want. When the hair is wet, you can twist the hair into a bun. Let the hair dry before brushing the hair with a wide-toothed comb. The hair might still have some waves, but there won’t be as many curls as there were before.
