Hair Masks and you :)

Do you like my kitsch title of this post? HE HE HE.

Anywhodoodle, as you can likely tell from today's post title and photo that this episode is all about hair masks.

Your daily conditioner help keep your hair smooth and tangle free. A hair mask though, will actually protect and fortify your hair.

Back in the day, I used to think that a mask would "fix" my split ends. Sadly, this is an "untruth". Once your hair has split, it needs to be cut off before the the split travels up the shaft of your hair.
A mask however can serve as a band aide to hold those frayed ends together until you can get to the salon.

Even better though, using a mask can help you prevent getting those split ends in the first place.

Hair masks can also help you fight frizz, increase shine and make your hair more manageable. 

As we know, our hair is as unique and as individual as we are. So, you need to find a mask that has the ingredients that your hair needs.

According to celebrity stylist , Marc Hill follow this guide :

Argan oil -- nourishing and moisturizing properties that leave hair healthy, smooth and shiny, as well as these three ingredients.

Wheat proteins -- aids penetration and helps prevent breakage; great for any hair type and particularly finer textures.

Keravis -- increases the strength of the hair and protects from heat; best for damaged hair due to heat styling tools.

Bamboo/fern extract -- gives structure and strength to the hair; those with fine hair will benefit the most.

Once you have bought a mask that suits your hair, How do you apply it for maximum benefit?

Wash and rinse your hair with warm water. Then apply the mask to your wet hair and leave on for 30 minutes.

Yes, you can apply it to dry hair. However, the warm water helps to open your hair's cuticle. this will enable your hair to absorb more of the mask.
After 30 minutes, rinse out with warm water. DO NOT re-wash. That just defeats the purpose here.

Added points....apply a warm, damp towel around your hair when the mask is in. 

If you have hair that falls into any of these categories, do a mask once per week: curly, dry, damaged, chemically treated, thick.

If you hair is fine, oily or thinning do a mask once a month.

Do you use a mask? What is your favorite?
