I prepare a mixture from 4 tablespoons of grapeseed oil and add a few drops of Bergamot or lemon essential oils, heat everything slightly, wash my hair with a soft shampoo, dry it a little with a towel and begin to apply the mixture. I start from the back of my head and move up towards the forehead. It’s important to process the ends of your hair thoroughly because they need moisture the most. I also massage the mixture into the roots. After I wrap my head with a piece of film and towel and leave the mixture on my hair for at least 15-20 minutes. After I rinse my hair with warm water, finishing with cool water. Fast, simple and efficient: hair restores after 3-4 procedures.
