What ingredients for the dull and fragile hair mask?
To take care of your scalp, it is essential to use healthy and natural products, which do not attack the hair fiber and nourish it deeply. Nature is well made ! It provides us with ingredients with unsuspected virtues, for targeted and effective care. That’s what we put the spotlight on in our mask recipe for dull and brittle hair. To make it, here are the ingredients:
- 6 tablespoons of powdered white clay
- 1 banana
- 3 tablespoons of sweet almond oil
- Floral water (ylang-ylang, sage or blueberry for example) or mineral water
Place the powdered clay, the banana and the sweet almond oil in a glass or earthenware bowl then add the floral or mineral water as you go, making sure to mix well using a wooden spatula until the dough is smooth and homogeneous. Your preparation should not be too runny or too pasty to be easily and evenly applied with your fingers.
Our tip: if you don’t have powdered clay, you can replace it with ready-to-use white clay paste. In this case, you will need less hydrosol (or mineral water).
Spread the paste liberally on your scalp, from roots to ends, and let the mask sit for 10 minutes. In order to enjoy all the benefits of this homemade mask, it is important not to let the clay dry out. You can do this by gently massaging your scalp and / or moistening your hair with a mist sprayer. Once the exposure time has elapsed, rinse thoroughly with clean water. In order to remove all residues, we recommend that you apply a special shampoo for dull hair.
