Some people are born with naturally coarse hair. This can be a problem for some women. They would have to spend a lot of time fixing and taming their coarse hair so that it will appear soft and silky. There are some hair products and hair procedures that you can go through if you want to have soft and silky hair. Most of these procedures and products come at a very high price. The good thing is, you can turn your naturally coarse hair into soft hair just by using some products that you can get from the supermarket.
Here are the steps on how you can make your coarse hair softer:
- Things to buy. You will need some hair products in order to make your hair soft and smooth. The items that you need are olive oil, a plastic shower cap, moisturizing shampoo, moisturizing hair lotion and a blow dryer. You can buy the hair products from the supermarket. Hair lotions and moisturizing shampoos come in different smells. You can choose one that you like best.
- Making your hair soft. To start off, pour a small amount of olive oil on your hands. Rub your hands and start massaging the olive oil on your hair. Make sure to cover all the areas of your hair. You can add more olive oil if you feel that your hair needs more moisture. Use the plastic shower cap and cover your hair with it. Leave the shower cap on for at least 45 minutes. You can do other household chores while you wait for the olive oil to set on your hair. After 45 minutes, rinse your hair with warm water to get rid of the excess oil. Get a hair towel and dry your hair a bit by blotting it on the towel. When you have gotten rid of the excess water on your hair, you can now apply moisturizing hair lotion. Put a small amount on your hands and massage it on your hair.
- Blow drying your hair. The next step is to blow dry your hair. Use a comb as you dry your hair in small sections. You can also use a flat iron or a curling iron to style your hair. The choice is up to you. Afterwards, you will notice that your hair is softer than before.
- Moisturizing shampoo. When you take a bath, make sure to use moisturizing shampoo to keep your hair from being dry. This will help with the coarse texture of your hair. You can also use conditioner twice a week so that you can maintain your soft locks.
These are the steps on how you can make your coarse hair soft. Do this procedure at least once a week to condition your hair and keep it feeling soft and silky. If you want, you can also go to the salon once a month if the strands of your hair are too coarse. Get a hair spa treatment or a hot oil treatment to improve the quality of your hair.
