Have your once luscious locks suddenly started to look dull and brittle? This could be due to the weather, environment pollutants, heat damage, or even damage from every day things like combing your hair or your hair brushing against your shoulders. Thankfully, there is help at hand. All you need is to use the right hair mask and in the right way.
Our previous posts covered the benefits of using a hair mask, but today, we will be sharing a few tips to make sure you get the most out of it.
Your hair needs to be clean to effectively absorb the nutrients, so start by giving your hair a good wash.
For best results, your hair should be damp, not sopping wet, so gently blot your hair with a fluffy towel. Next, comb out any tangles with a wide-toothed comb. Wet hair is very fragile, so start from the ends and work your way up to the roots to avoid accidentally breaking any strands.
Generously apply the mask to your hair, section by section. Most people have more damage along the lengths and ends of their hair, so make sure you pay special attention to those areas. After you’ve covered your hair with the mask, go back and massage your scalp. Massaging your scalp will increase blood flow to your follicles and encourage hair growth, and it feels so good!
After applying the mask, put on a plastic shower cap, then wrap your head in a towel and leave it on for at least 20 minutes. The shower cap and towel will trap the heat and help the mask penetrate into your hair better.
Finish off by rinsing your hair with cold water to seal the hair cuticle and to add tons of shine.
Frequency of application
You can use a mask once or twice a week depending on your hair’s needs. If your hair is really dry and frizzy then, you can even leave the mask on overnight. You will wake up to find your hair silky and healthy.
