I have never had any hair problems. Hair did not require special courtesy and any additional care, except for a good shampoo and correction tips. But having moved to another city, I felt the beauty of hair problems.
Local water is very hard, to such an extent that when you come out from under the shower, you feel like a fossil covered with a thick layer of calcium. But the main problem was hair loss. While combing, I watched with horror as the bottom of the bathtub was covered with an even layer of hair.
Uh, no, it won’t work, you can stay bald, I thought, and plunged into searching for information that could save me from such a sad fate.
At first I tried to follow the path of least resistance and buy a ready-made mask. Carefully studying the jars and bottles in cosmetic stores, I bought the familiar brand, but did not observe the effect. Then I tried to use what seemed to be the most effective descriptions, but they could not help me.
Belief in purchased domestic products left me, and I ordered Japanese hair care cosmetics through friends. The pleasure is not cheap, but I was firmly convinced that they would help, because not by hearsay know about the quality and effectiveness of Japanese drugs. In general, I consider Japanese cosmetics and perfumery one of the best and it is probably impossible to convince me otherwise.
In the meantime, my package is slowly but surely coming to me, I try to help my grandmother’s hair.
It so happened that a friend who had come from a holiday brought me several packages of real henna. I started her in the first place.
The mask is applied to dry, unwashed hair. Mixing a small amount of henna and whipped egg yolk, apply to hair from root to tip. It is necessary to apply not very much, just enough so that the hair is slightly moist. Wash off in a quarter of an hour.
After the first application, the hair began to look noticeably better, and it became easier to comb them. At the same time, their color has not changed. But soon the henna ended, and the purchase gives a similar effect, but, nevertheless, somewhat smaller. In my city there is an Indian store where you can buy the very, real henna, but its cost is too high.
In our southern city, fruits and berries grow right in the yard – went out, stretched out his hand and was ready. Of course, I would not use what grows right by the road (I think there would be more harm than good from such a mask), but in the parks and forest belts of these berries, too, with an excess. So I took the chance.
According to the recipe, you need to take 3 tablespoons of the pulp of the berries (I took mulberries), 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil (I only had olive oil) and a tablespoon of honey. Having mixed everything, put on hair and washed off in 20 minutes.
Sensations from this mask were twofold. On the one hand, the hair seemed to be pleasant, on the other hand it was very unpleasant to walk with it. Maybe it’s just that I don’t really like honey. I did not dare to repeat the experience.
Masks with pepper, mustard, onion and garlic are very popular. However, I did not dare to try them out, fearing to burn the already distressful scalp. And the smell did not seem particularly attractive.
So while I’m still looking for that perfect mask. Maybe you can tell some recipes?
