What I Did: So, I saw this pin on Pinterest; it said that after you showered if you used 1 cup of water mixed with 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar, spray it all in your hair with a spray bottle, and let your hair air-dry, your hair would be completely straight. I wanted to try this so that way I wouldn’t have to get up early in the morning to straighten my hair before school.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I wouldn’t try this again. It got my bathroom floor, counter, and walls all sticky, and it didn’t straighten my hair at all. It just made it more curly. I don’t think you can change this recipe. Maybe there is something else that would work better to straighten hair. For now, I will get up to straighten my hair. 🙂

    Not sure how sugar water would straighten your hair. But why straighten it anyway? My hair is straight as a stick, and I would KILL for curls!

    I agree – your natural hair is gorgeous!!! Of course, it’s up to you, but in your place I’d keep the curls. 🙂

    BE YOURSELF!!!!! I love your hair just the way it is

    I think this works better if you have light, slightly wavy hair. I haven’t used this exact recipe, but if I leave anything in my hair to weigh it down, brush and then air dry, it comes out straight. I just needs a little help to come out straight. This really depends on hair type in my opinion.

    Sounds like a scene from The Parent Trap. “Trust me… brown sugar is what you need to spray on our hair “

    Just saying – there’s a straightener *in the picture* of the supposedly non-heat-straightened hair!

    Espero hacer este truco y ojalá no se llene de hormigas mi cabello por lo el azúcar morena

    I’m thinking that whoever posted that was trolling just to screw with people. One – I can’t think of any reason sugar would straighten hair, and two, as Observant pointed out, *there’s a bloody straightener in the background* of the original pic. I’ve seen lots of hair types straightened, and there is *no* way the original pic is due to sugar.
