- 3 tbsp cinnamon
- 5-6 tbsp hair balsam
- 3 tbsp honey
Method of preparation:
This amount of the ingredients can be used for one washing if you have long hair. Use only half of this mixture in case your hair is up to your shoulders.
Mix the honey and cinnamon in a bowl, until you get a homogenous mixture. Then, add the hair balsam and blend once more for all ingredients to mix well.
First, rinse your hair well and when it is half dry, brush it and separate it in strands. Apply the prepared mixture with hair brush, trying to apply it on every strand as you comb it. You can apply the mixture with the hands on the hair ends, and rub it in the hair.
Take care not to apply the mixture directly on the hair roots, since it may cause redness or small inflammations. Do not apply it on the scalp as well.
After application, lift your hair up and make a little bun. Put a plastic bag on your head and use a towel to cover it. Leave it stay for 30 min and afterwards take off the towel, but keep the plastic bag for another 4 – 5 hours. Afterwards, wash it off with hot water. The outcome will astound you- your hair will be healthy, shiny, stronger and brighter up to 3 shades.
Repeat this treatment a few times if you need to make your hair considerably lighter. This hair veil is also suitable for those which have greasy hair. For dry hair, add a tablespoon of olive oil to the mixture.
Note: This hair treatment has effects only on natural, not colored hair. When the mixture is applied to your hair, you may feel a gentle tingling, but it is normal, so do not worry.
