A simple and useful replacement of store detergents and restorative products can be prepared at home. To strengthen hair, many women are actively using ingredients such as baking soda powder, clay, mustard powder and mustard oil, and raw egg yolk. [1]Recent studies have shown that water-soluble peptides of chicken egg yolk stimulate hair growth by inducing the production of vascular endothelial growth factor.[2]

We offer you a few popular and simple recipes.

  • Take one tablespoon of mustard powder, diluted in 500 ml of warm water, applied to hair. You can gently massage. There should be a slight burning sensation - this is normal, you should not rush with flushing: this is how the activity of the hair follicles is stimulated. Next, rinse your head with plenty of warm water.
  • Take one or two egg yolks, remove the thin shell (so that it does not get tangled in the hair), put on wet hair, massaged. It is washed with warm water (not hot!), Then rinsed with water with the addition of vinegar or lemon juice.
  • Mix two tablespoons of dry clay and warm water, to a creamy state. Additionally, you can add a little essential oil (optional). The tool is distributed over the scalp, held for a couple of minutes and washed with water and lemon juice.
  • Mix the baking soda with water, put on wet strands, massage. Wash off with warm water with lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. You should not worry: the curls will not be greasy, they will be perfectly washed and even strengthened.
