“My hair is losing its natural shine in autumn. Will rinsing with ice-cold water bring back lustre to my hair after summer holidays?”
The modern point of view about the favourable effect of ice-cold water on hair is absolutely erroneous. Low temperature causes harm to hair. It hinders activity of vessels that bring nutrients to hair bulbs. If you really want to regrow your hair it would be much better to use room temperature decoction of green tea, nettle and sage. These components will give your hair a silvery shine.
To prepare the decoction you need two teaspoons of green tea, two tablespoons of dried up nettle and sage. Put them in the kettle, add fiercely boiling water, bring the decoction up to the second boiling and draw it for at least an hour. Then filter it and add one and a half litre of boiled water. Pour the decoction into the basin and rinse your hair in it.
To achieve a greater effect you can blot your wet hair with a piece of natural silk and to wrap a soft silk scarf around your head. Please keep in mind that because of often washing your hair lose its natural humidity and, consequently, its shine. Also add edible gelatin to your diet. It will help you prevent hair loss, regrow your hair and, of cource, return natural lustre to your hair. Edible gelatin is contained in such meals as galantine, aspic, mousse, jelly, kissel, etc.
