Flax matures in July and August. Harvesting begins when plants are still greenish-yellow — they are uprooted and left to dry in the field. The seeds mature during drying, then take on a brown color. Once hammered and cleaned, it is best to store them in a paper bag. Seeds need to be ground just before use.
Especially recommended for owners of dry, damaged and dyed hair. Try cooking it already today and enjoy the effect. The mask recipe is simple.
What you need
1 tablespoon linseed, 1 cup water, foil and towel.
Don’t forget to use ground flax seeds for this recipe because you won’t be able to make gel consistency out of them.
Preparation of the mask. Pour the flax into a saucepan, pour water and put on the stove. Cook over a low heat for about 15 minutes, until a gel is formed from the grain under the influence of temperature. Then place a sieve on the bowl, and pour the mixture out. So we separate the gel.
Application. Apply a mask to washed hair. Then wrap your head with foil and towel. Wear the “wrapped” mask for at least half an hour, preferably a little longer, and rinse with warm water.
Effect. This homemade mask makes our hair moisturized, smoothed, and therefore much showy.
To preserve the effect of smooth and hydrated hair, apply this mask every few days.
