Sometimes we are forced to use hair products that help to tame or heal our hair – but the smell that they give off is nauseating. Ok this might be an exaggeration – but let’s admit that anyone who has to use Selsun Blue or any type of dandruff shampoo will not have the best smelling hair. I know because I have had to use them before. No matter how much conditioner or other hair products I tried to use to cover the smell it would not work.
Of course all that changed with this excellent home remedy for the perfect hair perfume. The best time to apply this perfume is when the hair is halfway through drying.
You will need:
– 6 tablespoons powdered charcoal
– 5 tablespoons powders myrrh
– 1 tablespoon powdered benzoin
– 1 tablespoon potassium nitrate
– 2-3 drops oil of bergamot
– 2-3 drops of sandalwood
– mucilage of tragacanth
You will first need to mix the powders together, sieve them, and then add the oils. First add the potassium nitrate and then enough of the mucilage of tragacanth to turn it into a stiff paste.
You will need to heat the paste over a water bath and make them into little cones that will dry. When they are dry light one of the cones and allow the smoke to enter into the damp hair. It is like incense for your hair. You will love the exotic smell that it will give your hair.
