Empress Sisi is well-known for her rigorous beauty routines, especially the daily care of her abundant and extremely long hair. Her hair was so long and heavy that she often complained that the weight of the elaborate double braids and pins gave her headaches. Once every two weeks, she would cancel all events of the day and wash her hair with a special natural remedy. We may not need to go that far, however, the special natural remedy can be used to channel the fierce girl boss inside you.

Empress Sisi’s shiny hair remedy:

2 egg yolks
2½ tablespoons Cognac
1½ tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar

Whisk the egg yolks and Cognac together until smooth. Work the mixture into clean, wet hair, brushing it through with a wide-toothed comb. Rinse out with lukewarm water. Then rinse your hair out a second time, but this time add the apple cider vinegar to the water running over your hair for extra shine. And that’s it: an Empress’ beauty routine!

Enough for one application. Shelf life: Use right away

How does this remedy work? Egg yolks add protein and strength to fine hair. Cognac adds brightness and shine to hair and creates volume. Apple cider vinegar detangles and de-frizzes hair, balances pH levels and gives hair shine.
