I have been using homemade cosmetics for many years. Of course, this does not apply to decorating. I buy it in stores. But I am happy to do my makeup cosmetics myself according to the recipes of my grandmother.
My granny loved to take care of herself. On the shelf in the bathroom she had a lot of boxes, flakonchikov. Instead of cream, she used oils, honey served as the basis for the face mask, to which she often added herbal teas, egg yolk or cinnamon.
It is cinnamon that I want today to sing praises ode 🙂 Because it helps me to care for my face, body and hair.
I used to dye my hair red. Once the master did not guess with a touch, and I got out of the salon with dark, brown hair. I did not like the result terribly. And though many acquaintances said that this tint suits me, I dreamed of becoming even a couple of tones lighter.
At the birthday party of a friend, her mother advised me of a recipe for a mask that brightens my hair. According to the woman, she brightened her natural hair in this way. She even showed me photos of her dark brown hair. And now her hair was a nice honey shade.
The mask recipe was simple: 4 tbsp. ground cinnamon, 4 tbsp. liquid honey and some favorite balm-rinse for hair. All you need to mix well, put on your hair, wrap and go to bed. The longer the mask is on the hair, the brighter the shade will be.
I tried to make such a mask. Prepared everything exactly according to the recipe, put on dry hair. Carefully wrapped with cling film, wrapped on top with a warm towel.
How does this mask smell good! Cinnamon and honey are simply amazing! When my husband came home, he immediately ran to the kitchen. Thought I was baking something delicious.
Since my hair color was very dark, I boldly left the mask for the night. True, she was afraid that honey could flow, so she covered the pillow with an old towel. But I was afraid in vain, the towel remained clean.
This mask is not washed off very easily. Its consistency reminded me of slippery jelly. I managed to lighten hair. The water flowed dark, I was pleased with the end result.
Hair not only became lighter. They have become very silky and pleasant to the touch. Now I do this mask all the time, but I don’t keep it for so long, because I do not plan to lighten them anymore. I usually keep a mask on my hair for 1 hour.
Dear readers, did you manage to lighten your hair with folk remedies? Do you use cinnamon for hair care?
