  1. I often use a similar mask on my hair, but I’ve never tried cognac.I really want to try your recipe now! I read that the Empress Elisabeth of Austria had the most beautiful legendary hair down to her feet, and she would wash her hair every two weeks with egg yolks and cognac. I absolutely love your blog, and am also very interested in homemade beauty products. Have you ever tried rinsing your hair after washing it with herbal tea or filtered water? You could also add a dash of apple cider vinegar. I found that this has added a lot of volume to my hair, and makes it really soft too! Thank you for sharing your wonderful tips!
