Cloves as an Alternative to All Kinds of Fancy Hair Care Products.
In Soviet times, when there were only two types of shampoo on the shelves, one for children and one for adults, it was very difficult to ensure that hair was silky, voluminous, and soft. But my mother always had excellent hair, thanks to the wonderful cloves buds.
How did she make her homemade shampoo? I share my mother’s recipe.
So what do we need? Simply nothing: half a liter of water, cloves buds, a tablespoon, and peppercorns, no more than 10 pieces.
We bring all this to a boil and let the solution simmer for 10 minutes over low heat. Then cover it and let it steep for half a day. That’s all, the decoction can be used.
Apply it to freshly washed hair. Then just wash it off. This process not only improves color and volume. It prevents hair from becoming brittle and acts as a preventative against dandruff and skin flaking.
