One tablespoon of chamomile flowers, three carrots, and cranberry. No, it’s not a sweet cake, but a natural product for shine and beautiful hair color.
While my grandmother twenty years ago had washed her thick black hair with a beer to make it shine and gain volume, her ritual seemed a bit ridiculous to me. Growing up, I accepted her cosmetic products, which often replaced expensive products from the shelves of perfumeries.
So today I make hair coloring masks for care and brilliance alone. Because it is very hard to give up on the commercial care products, it is good to balance the desire for using those products from the store and natural care products.
Hair coloring for reddish hair
- 3 small carrots
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 3 tablespoons of yogurt
- 1/2 cup of cranberry or pomegranate (for copper color)
In a mixer or blender, chop raw carrots, add cranberries or pomegranate and make a grainy mixture. Then add yogurt and honey, and mix it well. Wash your hair and gently apply the mask. Leave it for 1-2 minutes, then rinse.
Tea or coffee?
- bags of a black tea or coffee grounds
- 100 g canine
- tablespoon of an olive oil
- cup of water
According to the shade of a hair, select a tea or coffee – tea is recommended for bright red color, and coffee for darker shades. Make tea or coffee and add canoe, olive oil and appropriate water to get a smooth mixture. Immediately apply it to the hair, wrap it in a plastic bag or shower cap, then in silver foil and towel. Leave it on the hair for 2-3 hours, rinse, wash with shampoo, and apply conditioner.
For blond strands-
- 1 lemon
- 1 potato
- half a cup of a chamomile tea
Squeeze the lemon, scrub the raw potato so mix all together in a nice creamy mask. Add the tea cooled to room temperature and stir. After you wash your hair, apply the mask, gently massaging the hair and scalp. Cover the hair with a shower cap or plastic bag for 2-3 minutes sitting under the hood. Rinse and optionally apply a conditioner.
Flower tea for bright hair-
- 4 tablespoons of chamomile flowers
- 100 ml of water
Make chamomile tea and allow to stand for 20 minutes. Apply the preparation on a washed hair, and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Rinse and apply conditioner.
For brunette hair color-
- 2 teaspoons of leaves of walnut
- 2 bags of a black tea
- 100 ml of water
Pour boiling water on walnut leaves and black tea, and leave it for at least 30 minutes. Apply it to the hair and leave to act for about 30 minutes. Rinse, wash your hair with shampoo, and apply conditioner.
- 1/2 cup of cocoa or chocolate powder
- 1/2 of yogurt
- a teaspoon of honey
- a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
Combine all ingredients in a fine creamy mass. Apply it to your hair, and gently squeeze any excess water. Leave for 2-3 minutes, so rinse. If necessary, apply a conditioner.
