To apply, brush out your hair, and dipping your finger tips in the mask begin massaging into the hair starting at the temples and forehead, and working over the whole scalp. Keep re-dipping your fingers into the mask and massaging over the scalp, once the scalp is covered, begin smoothing through the heights of your hair. Twist your hair up and wrap in a shower cap (or clear wrap for a super sect look!) I like to leave this on for a few hours – but working from home makes this super manageable for me!
The mask has a lovely warming feeling – and smells great too! Cinnamon, honey and olive oil are all renowned for their benefits to healthy glowing hair and skin – some even believe that they promote hair growth, add a glossy sheen and can create natural gleaming highlights – I intend to keep up this mini hair pamper routine throughout the autumn, so I shall keep you posted!
To remove the mask after the treatment, rinse with warm (not too hot) water and gently massage the hair and scalp to remove fully. You might think that the oil would be hard to remove, and will leave your hair feeling yucky, I find that it rinses away really easily, and leaves my hear clean, glossy and super soft…with out a hint of autumn frizz in sight. I have also found that co-washing (hair washing with only conditioner) is a great way to finish up this treatment. So, Autumn hair, don’t care!
Honey for Hair Benefits:
Honey is rich with all kinds of antioxidants and vitamins which make it great for a healthy scalp and hair. It has antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties that can treat any scalp related infections. It is a natural hair softener as well. It is an emollient, meaning that it helps in the nourishment of hair follicles. It also has moisture retention properties which combats dry hair. Honey hair mask benefits are undeniable.
Cinnamon Hair Benefits:
Cinnamon hair benefits hair include regenerating, nourishing and toning of the hair giving it a much healthier and shinier outlook. It has choline, beta carotene and a number of vitamins necessary to moisturize the scalp, prevent hair loss, restore split ends, remove dandruff, activate circulation and stimulate hair follicles.
When you combine honey and cinnamon to prepare homemade hair masks for healthy hair, and add some essential oils to the mix – you are well on your way to giving your hair a natural shine and luster. Your hair will have enhanced elasticity and volume too.
