Cinnamon is one of the best known spices which adds flavor to our chocolate, tea, desserts, etc. However, not so many people are aware of the positive effects it can have on our hair health. Cinnamon serves as an alternative for chemical products. By using it we can get our hair to be silky, shiny and smooth.
You should keep in mind that the first effect of the cinnamon mask will be the strengthening of your hair follicles and acceleration of its growth. This way you´ll be able to gain your desired hair color. This is due to the fact that cinnamon contains high levels of vitamins and antioxidants that are good for your hair.
But this doesn´t mean that people with different hair colors won´t be able to get the desired results. For example, a black-haired person should repeat the treatment several times and have a little more patience.
Three tablespoons of cinnamon powder
5-6 tablespoons of hair balm or conditioner
Three tablespoons of honey
We need to point out that, if you have long hair, this amount of ingredients will be enough to prepare a mixture for a single hair wash. If you have shoulder-length hair, you could split the substance for two washes.
Preparation and usage:
Take a clean container and mix cinnamon powder with honey. Stir slowly so as to get a homogenous substance. Once you get it, add the hair conditioner and stir the mixture again.
Next you take the mixture in your hands and rub it in the hair, or brush it with a hairbrush, if you prefer it that way. Keep in mind that you mustn´t put this substance on your scalp or face. If you do so, you could experience discomfort or irritation.
After the mask has been put on, you should wrap your hair in a plastic bag and cover it with a towel. Leave it on for 30 minutes, and then take off just the towel, leaving the plastic bag on for another 4 to 5 hours. After this time rinse your hair with plenty of warm water. Once the process is finished, you´ll be surprised at the results.
If you want to lighten your hair even more, you should repeat the process several times. People with greasy hair could also try out this treatment. In case of dry hair, it would be convenient to add a tablespoon of olive oil to the mask.
Last, but not the least, we´d like to point out that this 100% natural mask can sometimes provoke a slight itchy feeling. We also want to make clear that this treatment is meant for people with natural hair, the one that hasn´t been dyed.
