How does it work on your hair?

Hair masks are high-powered formulas that, unlike shampoos and conditioners, reach further into your hair strands, giving astonishing benefits in a single use. Conditioners also nourish and strengthen hair but hair masks are more intense. Apart from the thicker hair texture, hair masks differ in the way they nourish your hair. While conditioners protect the outer layer of your hair, hair masks go deep inside and regenerate each hair strand. They contain natural oils, proteins, vitamins, and botanical extracts that repair daily damage. Each hair mask caters to a specific hair concern. Deep hydration, damage repair, nourishment, frizz control, and colour protection are some of the common benefits of including them in your hair care regime.

What is the correct way of using hair masks?

To get the maximum benefit from your hair mask, it is important to use it correctly. Here are a few steps to keep in mind when you add a hair mask to your hair care routine:

  • Choose the right mask: Select a hair mask that caters to your specific hair concerns, whether it's hydration, repair, damage control, frizziness, or color protection.
  • Cleanse your hair: Before applying the hair mask, ensure your scalp and hair are clean and free from excess product buildup. Shampoo your hair and gently towel-dry it.
  • Apply the mask: Take a generous amount of the hair mask and evenly distribute it through your damp hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends. Use a wide-tooth comb to ensure even coverage.
  • Time it right: Check the instructions on the hair mask to determine the recommended duration for leaving it on your hair. Typically, it ranges from 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Rinse it well: After the recommended time, rinse off the hair mask thoroughly with lukewarm water. Style your hair as desired, and flaunt your gorgeous hair.
