6 Tips To Get Straight And Silky Hair

We all love beautiful luscious and silky straight hair. And no matter how much it costs us, people who truly love straight hair don’t mind spending huge bucks at a salon to get gorgeous and straight hair. But did you know that if you follow a few straight hair tips, you can actually get gorgeous straight hair at home.  

Let us check out a few of the best straight hair care routines that you can easily follow at home.  

Aloe Vera and Olive Oil

One of the first straight hair tips that you can try is a hair mask made out of fresh aloe vera pulp and olive oil. This straight hair tip is going to work for hair that is already straight but appears rough and unmanageable. For this hair mask you need to take one cup of fresh aloe vera pulp and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Take both these ingredients in a blender and blend it out. You can apply this hair mask using a hair colour brush and begin with applying it from your roots until your tips. Make sure you section your hair well and every strand is covered. Leave this hair mask on for at least 20 minutes to half an hour for best results. You can then wash off this hair mask using a vegan shampoo which is mild and safe for your hair. 

Castor Oil

If you have a regular hair texture and you want silky soft hair, then one of the best silky hair tips is to apply castor oil once a week. The best way to apply castor oil is to warm it up to a comfortable temperature and then apply it to your roots using a piece of cotton wool. This will help in soaking your roots with the castor oil and then massage your way up towards your roots. Make sure you apply your castor oil at least once a week for best results. Apply it overnight and wash it off the next day for silky soft hair. Castor oil also helps in preventing hair fall and breakage. Castor oil is one of the best hair care products that you can get for your straight and silky hair. 


Every hair type requires conditioning after shampooing your hair. There might be days when you run out of your conditioner and your hair care routine ends with your shampoo. But if you want straight and silky hair then you must never miss out on your conditioner. For days when you run out of your conditioner, you can take half a cup of vinegar to rinse your hair after shampoo. Vinegar has high vitamin C concentrate which helps in deeply conditioning your hair and it leaves your hair straight and silky. Once you are done rinsing your hair with vinegar, let it sit for at least 3 to 5 minutes. This will help in deeply conditioning your hair. Once you are done, rinse your hair with cold water for a complete straight hair care routine. 

Lemon Juice and Coconut Milk

Another great silky hair tip is to apply a mask made out of lemon juice and coconut milk. This hair mask is a liquid based hair mask which has lemon juice, known for its high vitamin C concentrate and coconut milk known for its hydrating and moisturising properties. You will need 3 to 4 tablespoons of lemon juice and half a cup of coconut milk. Mix both the ingredients until they are well combined together. Next, section your hair into small parts and start applying this mixture using your hair colour brush from your roots. Make sure every strand of your hair is covered well. You can leave this mask on your hair for at least 20 to 30 minutes and then wash it off with a straight hair care combo which includes a shampoo, conditioner, and a serum. 

Banana, Aloe Vera, and Coconut Oil

When you use too many hair colour products, even your straight hair tends to turn wavy and rough. This hair mask is exactly for this reason. This hair mask will give you straight and silky hair instantly. You will need one overripe banana, fresh aloe vera pulp, and 2 to 3 tablespoons of coconut oil. Take all the ingredients in a blender and blend it out well until it forms a smooth paste like texture. To avoid lumps from the banana, you can also sieve this mask before applying. You can start applying this mask from your roots and up till your tips. Leave this mask on for at least 20 to 30 minutes for best results. Once you are done, rinse off with cold water without shampoo. Once your hair is half dry, apply coconut oil and leave it overnight. You can wash off your hair the next day with a mild shampoo followed by a conditioner. This hair care routine for silky hair works like magic. 

Okra Pulp and olive oil

If you have dry, rough, and unmanageable hair, then this hair mask is just perfect for you. This hair care routine for silky hair will require 3 to 4 okras or lady’s fingers and 3 to 4 tablespoons of olive oil. You will need to blend both the ingredients well to form a jelly-like paste. You can apply this car mask with your hands starting from your roots up till your tips. The only thing about this jelly-like paste is that you will need to apply it on wet hair or after shampooing your hair for best results. Once you apply this mask, you will need to leave it on for at least 20 mins for best results.
