A super rich treatment to bring your hair back to life. It revives dull hair, restores strength and shine. A real shot of active ingredients suitable for all hair types, especially the most damaged. The whole thing is to adjust according to your hair type to avoid weighing it down.
- 1 airtight container
- 1/2 cup flax seeds
- 2 cups of water
- 1 banana
- 1 tsp shea butter (depending on the thickness of your hair, you will need to add more (thick) or less (thin))
- Cosgard preservative (optional)
In a pot, bring the water, the flax seeds, the banana cut into pieces and the shea butter to a boil. Boil for 10 minutes, stirring regularly. The banana will melt into the mixture which will thicken little by little. Stop the heat as soon as the consistency suits you: neither too liquid nor too viscous. Remove the pieces of banana peel to have a non-lumpy consistency after the mixing step. Mix the preparation so that it is homogeneous. Then comes the somewhat tedious step of filtering. You can use a sieve (not too fine to let the gel through) or a nylon stocking (salvage!).
After wetting and detangling your hair, apply the preparation to the roots (without applying too much to avoid a greasy effect) using a brush. Massage the scalp. Stretch generously to cover lengths and ends. Do the wick to wick for an easier application. Cover your hair with a bathing cap (I'm not a fan of cellophane :s) then cover with a heated cap or a hot towel. In this treatment, heat is important to open the scales of the hair and activate all the benefits of the mask. The care can thus act in depth. Leave on for 30 mins.
Wash your hair with a mild shampoo. Finish with cold water for even more shine. No need for conditioner.
From the first use, the hair is easy to detangle, supple, soft and shiny. Fine hair will appreciate the volumizing effect.
The mixture contains a lot of water so it keeps quite badly, only 1 week in the refrigerator. For longer storage (4 weeks), add 10 drops of Cosgard preservative.
The gel texture is obtained thanks to the mucilages contained in flax seeds. They have the property of attracting water and forming a fluid gel. This gel is an excellent moisturizing and texturizing agent. On the hair, we love its caring effect. It gives suppleness, shine and softness to the hair. Flaxseeds have a high content of vitamin E, which gives them an action on the stimulation of hair growth and on the reinforcement of the hair fiber. The hair is less brittle and the premature discoloration of the hair is slowed down.
Shea butter deeply repairs damaged hair. It is ideal for combating external aggressions (heating appliances, sun, etc.) and strengthening the hair fibre. Shea butter revives dull hair and restores strength and vigor to brittle hair.
The nutrients contained in the banana help cleanse and purify the scalp. As a hair mask, the banana nourishes, soothes and restores the shine of the hair.
Disinfect utensils used for preparation. Always test products on a small area of the body.
For heating, use the flaxseed heating cap from my range, made by hand in France. Always favor shea butter from organic farming and unrefined, you have it in my range:
