To prepare the broth, boil a liter of water, pour a tablespoon of seeds into it and boil the mixture for five minutes. Let the broth steep for an hour, strain it and pour it into the water to wash your hair.
Table vinegar is often recommended to soften tap water. To use this method, add a teaspoon of table vinegar to one liter of water. This composition is used to give shine to hair.
