Have You Tried A Hair Mask?
Do you want that extra moisturizing boost for your hair, but are not too sure on how to achieve it? When people have this dilemma, they do things like switch out shampoos and conditioners or add a pre-poo treatment of their favorite natural oils. However, have you ever thought about taking your hair game to the next level by using a hair mask? Not only that but have you thought about making one yourself? Most hair masks are simple, easy to use and contain all natural ingredients. Stay with me, now! I am about to let you in on a few favorites and useful mask recipes, but first, let us talk about what a hair mask is and the benefits you can gain from using one:
What Exactly Can It Do?
A hair mask is a unique deep-conditioning treatment that maintains and restores your hair strands from the inside out. Hair masks work to reverse the processing, coloring, styling and the environmental factors that cause hair damage. A simple conditioner only coats the surface of a hair strand, very few penetrate the hair shaft. Hair masks go much further, by working inside the cuticle. By getting into a regular hair mask routine, you’ll notice a difference in your hair’s durability, strength, and overall health.
How To Pick The Right Mask Ingredients For Your Hair
When choosing the recipe you want for your hair, it is important first to analyze your hair’s current state. Do you have heat damage? Is your hair naturally oily or dry? What is the purpose of you using a mask? Find out exactly what you want a hair mask to do for your hair and gather the ingredients that will aid in your hair goals and make sure they are all natural ingredients. If you need a protein boost, opt for eggs in your hair mask recipe. If you need extra moisture, go to your kitchen and whip out a jar of mayonnaise! Once you know what you need, you can put together your little recipe. If you need a place to start, I will give you a few recipes that are sure to work wonders for your hair.
