I spent a lot of happy hours in the kitchen of Los Angeles based celebrity hairstylist Robert Hallowell.

He shared lots of great hair recipes with me.  During one of my visits he told me how to treat dry hair with a Chamomile Mask.

Robert told me the Chamomile Mask hair recipe would help get my dry scalp and strands ready for Summer. I warned him I didn't have a lot off patience for complicated formulas and he promised me his mask was very easy to do.

Chamomile Mask - Will It Lighten Hair?

He also explained the chamomile can add a hint of brightness to naturally blonde or highlighted tresses like mine.

Although it can add shimmer and shine, chamomile can't provide enough powerful lift to add blonde hues to brunette or dark red shades.

Bridget Fonda, one of Robert's long time celebrity clients loved his treatment for her light colored tresses.

It's no surprise Robert's many celebrity clients including Lucy Liu, Courteney Cox, Mary Louise Parker and Sarah Jessica Parker nicknamed Robert "The Kitchen Beautician.

After you have completed the Chamomile Mask treatment, consider letting your hair air dry. Remember, heat drying can undo some of benefits of the chamomile treatment.

Remember that this treatment can be used to alleviate dry scalp and strands.

It can be used 2 times a week for dry scalp and strands or 4 times a week to add shimmer and shine.

Store any leftover treatment in a clean glass jar and refrigerate. Double or triple the recipe for long or very long hair.

Keep applying the Chamomile Mask as long as your hair continues to respond to the treatment.
