How was your 4th of July? I posted my
For the final installment of my Month of Hair Masques, (aka where Elle is determined to try any weird and/or stinky masque), I decided to end with a bang. And keep vampires away as well (sidenote: Any Tru Blood Fans or Being Human fans?). Ole Google didn’t let me down and I found this recipe. See previous hair masques—and results—here.
- Spoonful of Castor Oil
- 2-3 Garlic Cloves, crushed
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 egg yolk
- 5 teaspoons olive oil
- Mix ingredients
- Apply to hair & massage for 5-10 minutes.
- Cover head with warm towel.
- Wait 1 hour.
- Shampoo away.
Did It Work? Would I Use It Again?
The castor oil is supposed to stimulate growth, while the garlic helps with hair loss. The additional ingredients provide nourishment. I used it once, so I can't attest if hair growth occurred. I do know that my hair felt fuller and healthy.
This masque literally stunk, so probably not. However, I shed A LOT and if I was bothered by this, I would use this masque more often.
I really enjoyed this series, and my hair did too (?) I think. I wanted to prove that I could use natural ingredients on my hair and I could do it cheaply. I honestly don’t see myself splurging on the pricey hair masques anymore. I’m very glad I tried these masques, although some I probably won’t use again.
