Mustard is a universal product that has long been used in cosmetology, pharmaceuticals, cooking and everyday life. Mustard powder has proven itself especially well as a remedy that strengthens, eliminates dandruff, activates the growth of hair and helps to normalize the activity of the sebaceous glands. Mustard hair masks prepared on your own are not only affordable, but also capable of surpassing many professional products in terms of efficiency.
Features of the use of mustard for hair
In order for mustard-based masks to accelerate hair growth and give them strength, you must adhere to the following rules:
- Mustard powder requires careful application, as it is a rather aggressive substance. Avoid contact with eyes to avoid burns.
- In order not to dry out even more brittle and dry hair, mustard hair masks must be enriched with natural oils. Best of all coconut or burdock.
- To prepare homemade mustard masks, use only powder; store-bought mustard in jars is unsuitable for this purpose.
- Mustard powder can only be diluted with warm water. Boiling water promotes the release of toxic components from mustard that can adversely affect skin health.
- The presence of various lesions, wounds or rashes on the scalp is a contraindication for the use of masks.
- The prepared composition must be immediately applied to the head. The longer such a mask will stand, the less effect you will achieve.
- After applying the mask, be sure to wrap your head with a warming cap. This will improve its efficiency.
- To get the result, the burning mixture must be applied in a course lasting 30-35 days. Then take a break for 2 months and repeat the course again.
Mustard mask can provoke an increase in blood pressure. Hypertension beware!
Mustard mask recipes
Here are the time-tested recipes:
- Combine 2 yolks (1 is enough for short hair) with 1 tablespoon of any liquid honey, 1 tablespoon of fat sour cream, 2 teaspoons of any herbal tincture. Heat the mixture a little in a water bath and add 1 tablespoon of mustard powder to it. Mix, apply to the roots of the hair. After half an hour, rinse the strands with shampoo.
- A great addition to the mustard mixture is apple cider vinegar. It will give curls elasticity and a mirror shine. Mix 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (regular table cider vinegar will not be as useful) with 2 tablespoons of mustard powder until smooth. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar and almond oil. Lubricate the roots of the hair and strands with the composition, trying not to get the slurry on the ends. Wash off with warm water after 20-30 minutes.
- Make 1 tablespoon of mustard powder into a paste with a little warm water. Add a teaspoon of sugar, 5 drops of liquid vitamin E, and 2 tablespoons of burdock root oil. Apply the mixture immediately to the hair roots, wrap and leave for half an hour. After the end of the procedure, wash your hair with shampoo and apply coconut oil or a leave-in balm to the ends.
