To grow long curls is the dream of many girls. To speed up the growth process, you can use a very simple mustard mask. For it, you will need ingredients that can be found in any kitchen: sugar, dry mustard, burdock oil, one egg yolk and water.
In a small bowl, pour 40 grams of mustard, mix it with the yolk, separated from the protein and add there a tablespoon of the oily mixture and two tablespoons of water. All this must be warmed up in a water bath and only then supplemented with a pinch of sugar.

For greater effect, the resulting composition must be held on the head for forty minutes. Wrap your head in plastic wrap and a warm towel on top. After forty minutes, wash off the mask.

The mixture must be used in a warm form. Heat it until the honey dissolves, and then let it cool so that it does not accidentally burn your scalp.
Distribute the warm mass along the roots, and the residues along the entire length. For effectiveness, the mask also needs to be left warm (under a terry towel) for at least half an hour. And better for an hour. Then it can be washed off using your shampoo.
A mask consisting of burdock and almond oil, supplemented with vitamin E in liquid form, will help you make your hair thicker and stronger. All these elements need to be simply mixed in one container and, without warming up, put on all length. Such a mask lasts an hour or two on the hair, depending on the type of your hair.

You can also distribute the warm mixture along the entire length so that the hair looks more thick and shiny.
Put a plastic hat on top of the mask or just wrap your head in some kind of bag, and on top with a towel. This design will allow the hair to be fully saturated with useful elements.
