Leftover: Fresh Apples
DIY Recipe: Apple Hair Mask
To revive dry, dull hair, all you need is one big apple (you can also use two or three medium-sized apples, depending on your hair length). This mask solves dry-scalp problems such as itchiness and flakes. For best results, choose only fresh apples without any dents or flaws.
What You'll Need:
1-2 large or 3-4 medium apples, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon corn flour
Method and Application:
Peel, core, and grate the apples. Combine the grated apple with remaining ingredients and stir well. Spread the mixture over dry, unwashed hair and leave on for 20-30 minutes. You can cover your hair with a shower cap or a PVC-free food film and then wrap it with a towel. Rinse the mask off with tepid water and follow with a mild shampoo if desired.
