Loosen Your Natural Hair...Naturally! - Natural Hair Relaxer

By . - Wednesday, February 02, 2011

So we know that it is not possible to straighten curly hair without either a chemical or heat. Perhaps you're not interested in straightening your beautiful curls. You may just want to loosen them up a bit. Try out these 'Natural Hair Relaxer' options below. If nothing else I'm sure your hair would be super shiny and soft with a bit of these ingredients.

Coconut and lime treatment:

1 tin of coconut milk
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons of lime juice
2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch

Cherrylola treatment:

2 part yogurt
1/2 part baking soda
1/2 part Braggs Amino Acids

Baking soda loosener:

1/2 cup of baking soda
1 cup conditioner
leave on for about an hour then rinse out.

Yogurt/Honey/Bananas mix:

1/2 cup yogurt(or sour cream)
2 tablespoons honey
1 mashed banana
**Try organic baby banana food to save some elbow grease.*

I don't know about you all, but I have my eye on that coconut and lime treatment. 
It's got my name written all over it.

Which one will you be giving a try? Let us know in the comment section below.

  2. Hello Anonymous,

    I'm actually doing a baking soda deep condition right now, and I added a bit of coconut oil to it for added benefit. My natural curl pattern is a 3C to 4A in certain parts. The baking soda deep condition leaves my hair ultra soft and makes the curls pop.

    I will post pictures when I am done. Cheers

  3. Hey!

    I just came upon this site and I got sooo excited that I went and bought the ingredients right after :D! I was wondering...seeing as it says that over time this can help to soften the curls a little do you think that if I were to use rollers while I have the ingredients in my hair I could help "guide" (sorry but I can't think of a better word) to maintain a certain structure? I have mainly type 3c curly hair with some areas a little less curly and some a little more and I have a lot of shrinkage after my hair dries. When it is wet it goes a little down my back and once dry it is shoulder length. So I was thinking that maybe if I use rollers to the size that I would like my curls to be it might gently help "guide" my hair...even if it does not set it in that way. Perhaps one of you has done this? I will try and do this myself but it will probably take time before it takes effect (if at all). I will keep you guys posted...but would be great if someone who has done this can let me know :D.

  4. My hair is sort of 3B/3C and i really hope to just loosen theses curls JUST A BIT!!!!

  5. Where can I purchase liquid aminos in South Africa, I've been searching for it

    1. You'll have to check various health food stores like The Wellness Warehouse. Let me know if you find it.
