All women dream of thick, healthy hair and spend a lot of money on cosmetic products for hair care. But to improve the curls can be much cheaper, using natural healing supplements. Among such valuable gifts of nature is mummy. To enrich the hair structure it can be mixed into the shampoo or used as a solution.
The priceless gift of the mountains
Mumie - mountain gum - has been known for a long time as an effective remedy with healing properties. The ancient philosopher Avicenna said that only death could not win, he would cope with the other ailments. This substance is formed inside the crevices in the mountains and rocks, so it is often called mountain balm or mountain tears. In medicine, a purified or extracted elastic mass is used that has a dark brown color, a bitter taste and a rather unpleasant odor. Mumiyo is actively used to treat:
- skin inflammations of a different nature;
The tool also helps to update the cells of the epidermis, so it is actively used as a component of anti-aging creams. Mountain pitch also has a beneficial effect on hair.
How to improve the hair?
Mountain balm is essentially a non-hormonal drug that optimizes metabolic processes in the scalp. This is due to the stimulation of blood circulation in the microvasculature of the epidermis, as well as an increase in the content of copper and zinc in its cells. As a result of these processes, the tissues of the hair follicles (bulbs) are saturated with oxygen, and the hair grows better. In addition, the mummy:
- improves cell regeneration;
- has anti-inflammatory effect;
- eliminates dandruff;
- stops hair loss;
- protects against negative influences from the outside.
Cosmetologists recommend adding mummy to shampoos, making masks or preparing special solutions for the treatment of the locks.
How to enrich the shampoo mumie properties?
One of the easiest ways to improve the condition of the curls is to add mummy pills to the hair shampoo. Women prefer this way of using mountain resin, as it is simple and does not require additional calculations - only 5-10 g of the substance is sufficient. Mixing the drug in a bottle of shampoo, you can use it as usual or leave on the hair for 4-5 minutes to enhance the action.
Systematic use (at least 2 weeks) will significantly change the state of the hair, giving it a luxurious look. However, if the hair is in very poor condition, it makes sense to regularly wash your hair with a concentrated shampoo. Preparing it is also not difficult.
