Supposedly you can take one cup of water, dissolve 2 tablespoons of brown sugar in it and spritz on damp hair to straighten without heat.. thoughts? I'd be a little concerned that insects would be attracted to my hair... what do you think?

Sounds very sticky. I guess the idea behind it is that it would weigh the hair down more? I'd definitely be worried about insects, too :confused:

It was tried during this thread (forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=109196&p=2348027&viewfull=1#post2348027). It seems overall it wasn't recommended, even with the test not using the full amount of the mixture, due to the effect it had on her hair: Feeling dry, brittle, and that there was a negative texture change while the mixture was in.
