Lepota - Sage darkening treatment

Use this to darken brown hair, and to bring out its lowlights. If you wish to make a darker mixture, boil 1 tsp tea leaves with the sage leaves.

1 tbsp dried sage leaves or 2 tbsp fresh chopped
1 cup/250 ml water
1 egg yolk (optional)
kaolin powder

Place the sage in a saucepan with the water and bring to boil. Cover and simmer for ten minutes. Strain while still hot.
Pour the decoction into a bowl. If using the egg yolk, place in a bowl and gradually beat in the cooled sage decoction.
Gradually beat in enough kaolin powder to make a paste the consistency of thick cream.
Section your dry hair, then cover each section in the sage paste.
Wrap your hair in kitchen wrap and leave for between 30 minutes and one hour.
Rinse the paste out with warm water, then use a sage shampoo and rinse.
