Hair Restoring Strawberry Mask

Serves 1

Preparation time - 5 mins

 

A hair tonic mask for healthy hair and scalp. Use strawberries for their naturally high Vitamin C content and supporting iron absorption for healthy circulation, along with natural silica for healthy hair growth.
Olive oil is included to nourish the hair and scalp whilst egg white is full of natural proteins and great for giving hair a natural shine. Plus, it helps the scalp by preventing excess oiliness. Apple cider vinegar is perfect for giving the hair a glossy finish and supporting scalp health. Honey strengthens the hair follicle and rosemary stimulates blood flow for a healthy scalp.

Ingredients

3 strawberries

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoons honey

1 egg white

1 sprig of rosemary OR 4 drops of rosemary/lavender essential oil

Directions

How to:

Blend all ingredients together thoroughly for 20 to 30 seconds. This can be a little messy to apply so best done in the bathroom over the sink. Apply to dry hair; start in the middle of your hair at the root and apply small amounts down the parting. Massage in then separate the hair and continue to apply all over the scalp massaging in each time. To cover the back of the head it is best to hang the head over the sink. Then, apply whatever is left and massage this to the lengths of your hair. Give the scalp a good massage, pile your hair on top of your head and leave on for 20 minutes. Thoroughly rinse off then wash with your normal shampoo and a very small amount of conditioner.
