The conclusion is that hair masks help strengthen the health of our scalp and the results are healthier and therefore naturally more beautiful hair. It is a hair care that nourishes and repairs your hair. 

How to apply hair mask ?

Before applying a hair mask, you must first wash your hair with your usual hair care products and then rinse it with water.

The mask must take the time to nourish your hair intensely. Once applied to your hair, massage the product well to distribute it well and so that it can penetrate your strands.

Then, you will have to wait at least 10 minutes for it to penetrate your hair fiber. The best is to wait 20 minutes, or even 30 if you have time. The longer you leave the mask on, the more effective it will be.

To improve the effectiveness of the mask, wrap cellophane paper around your hair. The paper will retain the heat and thus improve the effects of the mask.

Then rinse your mask thoroughly in cold or slightly warm water. Massage your roots well to loosen the product from your roots. 

When to do a hair mask?

Do a hair mask when you can spare some time to take care of yourself. This is more likely to be during your evenings before going to bed or during your cocooning weekends.

In terms of frequency of use, it is recommended that you do one once a week, varying the types of masks every week.

Indeed, if the hair gets too used to the product, the effect of the nutrients will be less effective. So if one week you make a hair mask based on coconut oil, the next week favored other ingredients such as avocado or argan oil.

For very dry or damaged hair, you can do twice a week for a little hydration.
