  1. 1

    Fill a spray bottle with 1/3 cup of milk.

  2. 2

    Place a clean towel around your shoulders to prevent milk from dripping onto your clothing.

  3. 3

    Spray enough of the milk onto your dry hair to completely saturate your hair.

  4. 4

    Use a wide-tooth comb to evenly distribute the milk through the hair. Be sure to start at the ends of the hair and work your way up to the scalp.

  5. 5

    Allow the milk to sit on the hair for 20 to 25 minutes. Take this time to shower as normal.

  6. 6

    Rinse the hair while in the shower.

  7. 7

    Use shampoo and conditioner to wash and condition the hair as normal. Allow the hair to hair dry.

Tips and warnings

  • It is important to complete this straightening method prior to showering to avoid smelling like milk.
  • Do not attempt to brush hair while it is still wet. Brushing wet hair will cause breakage and damage.
