Kitchen Confidential: The Ultimate French Recipe for Shiny Hair

-------

josephine-cropThis column reveals the personal beauty recipes, homegrown remedies, and family concoctions that the industry’s trusted pros rely on for staying radiant.

From the Kitchen of: Olivia Chantecaille, founder of Chantecaille Beauté

“This is an old family recipe that my French grandmother passed down to my mom, who then shared it with me. I cherish it because it reminds me of them. But I like to put my own modern spin on it with a few additional pure ingredients. I do this treatment at the start of each new season, to help my hair adjust to the changing weather. It really works to make it stronger, shinier, and silkier. Plus, the rose water helps to balance out the pH of the hair and prevent breakage.”

One for the Recipe Box: Homemade Hair Treatment With Rose Water

1/4 cup of rose water
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup of rum
2 tablespoons of grape seed oil

“Beat the eggs thoroughly in a large bowl, add the rose water, rum, and oils. Mix the ingredients well. I apply the mask on towel-dried, not wet hair, which allows it to penetrate better. I start by massaging the mixture into the scalp and work my way down to the ends. Then I secure my hair in a chignon and let the mask soak in for thirty minutes. I finish by rinsing with cold water to seal the cuticle, eliminate frizz, and boost shine.”
