We all love straight hair. Why? They look so neat and beautiful. Right? However, not all of us are blessed with naturally straight hair. Many of us have frizzy, unmanageable, and dry hair which looks untidy and breaks more. 

Many of us wish to get straight hair and even try straightening tools and chemical packed treatments like keratin and smoothening to achieve the same. However, these can damage our hair in the long run.

Well, there are many natural ingredients that can benefit our hair and straighten them. Many homemade hair masks prepared using common kitchen ingredients can be used to get straight hair at home.
