Tips for hair masks
A hair mask is a simple addition to your hair care routine, but can make a big difference in how you look. We have compiled a list of helpful resources to help you get started.
- 1. Understand your natural hair
- Think about the specific needs of your hair. Are you focusing on texture? Are your roots in need of some extra care? Your current hair condition will help you choose the right hair mask.
- 2. Decide how often you want to mask
- You won’t apply a hair mask daily, just as you wouldn’t do a facial mask every day. If you have dry hair, applying a hair mask more often will give your hair the moisture it needs. Hair masks can make your hair look duller if you have fine hair.
3. Choose great ingredients
A hair mask that does not contain harmful, hidden ingredients is the best. Love Beauty and Planet believes in natural, cruelty-free, and paraben-free ingredients so that you can feel confident about how your hair products are affecting the environment and you can look great. Try our Murumuru Butter & Rose 2 minute Magic Masque to experience the great benefits of hair masks made with great ingredients.
4. Please read the instructions
Some masks can be applied to wet hair while others can be applied to dry hair. To get the best results, make sure to read the directions on the packet or bottle.
5. Use an efficient method of applying
Do not just apply your hair mask without thinking. Apply the hair mask evenly and pay attention to key areas. You may need to apply the mask all over if you are using a super-hydrating hair mask for dry hair.
If you have oily or normal hair, it is better to avoid the roots and scalp as they are likely to contain enough natural oils. To untangle knots and ensure that the hair mask is evenly applied, you should brush it through.
6. Be patient
This is especially important for those with dry hair. Your hair will take time to absorb the benefits of your hydrating mask. To ensure your hair is hydrated when you wake up, an overnight hair mask can be used.
7. Use cool water to rinse.
When washing shampoo, conditioner, or hair masks, cool water is the best. Cool water can help seal in moisture and prevent frizz by closing the pores and cuticles of your hair and scalp.
8. Assess the results
Do your hair feel softer or glossier? You’re welcome! You can add the hair mask to your hair care routine. You can always try another mask to find the right hair mask for you.
