Have you ever treated your hair to a hot towel mask? Here is what you need:
juice of 1/2 fresh lemon
1-2 tbs honey
1-2 tbs almond oil
Make the mask first. I just used basic ingredients that everyone has in their kitchen. You can substitute almond oil with good quality olive oil or just use honey on its own.
My hair tends to overproduce its natural oils (hence the ‘no shampoo’ hair challenge) so lemon works lovely here, it kind of controls the production of oil for a while and makes my hair shiny. I added a little bit of almond oil to moisturise my hair and the honey here works as a natural conditioner.
Now that you have your hair mask ready, let’s get started. Run the hot tap or boil some water in the kettle. Be careful with the hot water and don’t burn your hands, make hand bearable temperature, not boiling hot. Soak your towel in the hot water while applying your hair mask.
Massage the mask into your damp hair and scalp. Get the towel out of the hot water, wring it well and cover your hair. Keep the towel on for about 15-20 minutes. Relax. Shampoo as usual.
