Our grandmothers did not have access to a variety of so many beauty products like we have. Even though, they were able to enjoy beautiful and healthy hair. The secret of their beauty lies in hair rinses – they worked as a rich, concentrated hair conditioners. Such products provided nourishment for hair and scalp. If you want to try out the power of such rinses on your own hair, I would like to present two recipes based on the most valuable natural oil – argan.
Hair rinse with sage, nettle and argan oil
- 2 tablespoons of dry sage
- 2 tablespoons of dry nettle
- 4-6 drops of argan oil
Pour boiling water over the herbs, cover up and brew for about 10 – 15 minutes. Then, strain the infusion and leave aside to cool down. Next, add a few drops of argan oil and stir gently. Make sure the ingredients ale well mixed.
Hair rinse prepared this way provides instant shine and softness and also slightly straightens hair. If your hair is susceptible to styling treatments – this mixture will definitely work well. Additionally, you will get straight hair without having to reach for the straightener. Argan oil will take care of the elasticity of curls from the roots to the ends. What is more, it improves the lustre of hair and moisturises it. Argan oil used regularly is a great remedy for dry scalp and dandruff. In addition, it protects against UV radiation.
Lotion with linden flower and argan oil
- 2 tablespoons dry linden
- 4-6 drops of argan oil
- 2 cups water
Put linden into a saucepan and pour 2 cups of water. Simmer for about 10 minutes, make sure that the water does not boil. Otherwise, flowers can burn and lose their valuable properties. Strain the infusion and leave it aside to cool down. Next, add a few drops of argan oil. It is advisable to start with a small amount of oil and gradually add a drop more each time. This method will help you obtain the optimal proportion of oil which can be used at once in the rinse. If, for example, after adding six drops of argan oil your hair looks too heavy – the optimal dose which you can use is 5 drops. Argan oil will nourish your hair, give it shine and elasticity and treat the scalp. The substance which was produced by linden, soothes the scalp and provides moisturising properties. Both linden and argan oil leave hair pleasant to the touch and resilient.
The rinse must be poured gradually on the hair after the last wash. You can also pour the content into a bowl and leaning over, dip your hair, making sure that all your hair soaks the liquid evenly.
