BEAUTY RECIPE: THE APPLE HAIR MASK (IT MAKES HAIR ALL SMOOTH & SHINY!)
THE REASON IT WORKS?
Apples contain an ingredient called Pyrus Malus, which is a terrific hair conditioner. In fact, Pyrus Malus is used as a conditioning agent in many hair products. Apple cider vinegar, at the same time, helps balance hair’s pH levels, while simultaneously removing all gunk and product buildup. It also helps close the hair cuticle. The result is a smoother surface, which reflects more light, making hair shinier and easy to manage.
HOW TO PROCEED?
1. Peel, core and grate 1-2 large apples.
2. Combine this pulp with 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 tablespoon corn flour; mix well.
3. Work this mixture into dry, unwashed hair and leave it on for 30 minutes.
4. Rinse off the hair mask with tepid water.
5. Wash your hair as usual.
