For highlighted hair

If you are on holiday leave it on while you are in the sun.
A mask for brunettes
Try mixing cocoa powder with plain yoghurt and applying it to towel dried, shampooed hair. Leave it on for 2 or 3 minutes then rinse, avoiding contact with the skin. The yoghurt will penetrate the hair shafts allowing the cocoa to work it’s magic, leaving your colour looking brighter.
