What you need:
- Mustard! (Avoid if you have an itchy scalp or inflamed skin)
The steps :
Carry out this hair care treatment before washing your hair. Repeat the process once a week but no more than that, otherwise you’ll risk irritating your scalp. Note that if you don’t carry out this treatment once a week the effects on your hair growth will be less noticeable.
1) Spread the mustard all over the scalp. Take it section by section so that you can have a nice and even spread.
2) Leave in your hair for 20 minutes.
3) Rinse well until there is nothing left and the water is clear. Continue to shampoo your hair as normal.
The mustard stimulates the blood circulation in you head. If your head starts to itch or becomes hot don’t worry it is normal! Your scalp could stay red for an hour or two.
As a less abrasive alternative you could try mustard oil or a mix of mustard oil and Shea butter. (This is especially good if you have dry or frizzy hair.)
