When I first heard about this I was like ‘Really? What I look like, a vegetable garden?’ Very soon after I had to eat my words. I promise this works its magic. For newbies, just moisturize your hair, seal then cover with a plastic cap and sleep in it overnight. It’s that simple. You can find out more about GHE here. Do this at least once a week and see your dry hair turn soft and fluffy and you may also enjoy increased hair growth too.
Use amla* and cassia* as a hair mask to strengthen your hair. I use it to address my high porosity issues. In my experience, this mask works on the first use. It is evidenced in how soft your hair feels after you DC and the enhanced curl definition (This from someone who doesn’t have a defined or distinct curl pattern which should tell you how potent this is).
- Add water to a saucepan set on lit stove top
- Immediately spoon in and dissolve cornstarch into the water. As the water evaporates and the warmer it gets, the thicker the substance becomes so keep stirring. You can make it as liquid as you want or thick enough to have some body to it… Turn off flame at the desired thickness.
- Stir in honey* when the mixture is just warm.
- Apply the warm (NOT HOT) mixture to hair concentrating on the ends.
- Cover with a plastic cap for at least 30 minutes.
- Rinse with cool water to seal cuticles.
I trust that in no time you will be able to testify that you’ve kicked chronic dryness to the curb. If you’ve already done so, tell us how you did it in the comments below.
