There is no doubt about the fact that straight silky hair perks up a girl’s attitude quotient. However, the torture that our hair has to go through, during those hours of re-bonding, is certainly a put off for any sensible woman. For the women who shudder at the idea of hours of harmful chemicals and electrical appliances functioning on their hair, there is a better option, in the form of natural hair straightening methods. They are the best way to have straight silky hair, that too without the use of costly and harmful chemicals and certainly no side effects.
- Get a glass of coconut milk and add juice of one lemon to it. After mixing it properly, refrigerate it till the time a creamy layer forms on top.

You would find that your hair are shiny and less unruly. After several repetitions of the process, you would find your hair straighter too.
- Take a cup of milk and add a few drops of honey to it. Mix in some mashed strawberries and then apply the mixture on the hair.

- Hot oil treatment is another method that nourishes and moisturizes your hair, making it straighter in the long run.
