    cm long along with a cucumber. Mix the 2 ingredients well and massage
    the obtained mixture onto your scalp for several minutes. Leave to act
    for 30 minutes and then rinse with warm water.
  • Olive oil – Simply apply olive oil on your scalp and hair and
    if you can, leave overnight. Put a shower cap on to prevent it from
    staining your bed sheets.
