How a hair mask works

Hair masks have properties that act on the scalp , with the aim of rebuilding what is known as the hair cuticle.

Its base is much more concentrated than what you find in conditioner, which makes it have a more powerful effect on your hair.

For the hair mask to have the desired effect, it requires between 20 to 30 minutes of application. Always after shampoo and conditioner.

In the market you find a wide variety of hair masks. Our recommendation is to always look for a hydrating hair mask that contains natural ingredients, avoiding invasive products that can damage your hair.

Natural masks for your hair are also cheaper , in addition to being healthy so that you can have regular hair care, without damaging your hair.

Also choose a hair mask with a UV filter that will offer your hair extra care, especially if you expose your hair to the sun in the summer season.

How to apply a hair mask

If you're wondering how to use a hair mask, we'll tell you here. You must follow simple steps to apply your hair mask and have the results you want. Take note!:

  • Wash your hair very well . It is important that your hair is very clean, so that your hair can absorb the ingredients of the mask and get the most out of them. Remember to also use a conditioner and do gentle massages to prepare your scalp for the product.
  • Dry your hair to remove excess water . It is advisable that you apply the hair mask to damp hair and not completely dry or wet hair. Use an absorbent microfiber towel or, failing that, a cotton t-shirt. This will help the mask ingredients penetrate your head very well.
  • Separate your hair . Use clips to separate your hair into different sections. This will help the mask act in all areas of your head, applying the product to each of them.
  • Apply your mask and massage . Generally, masks should be applied from the middle to the ends, ensuring that the product spreads throughout the hair and using gentle massages and movements so that the mask penetrates completely and seals the hair cuticle.
  • Cover your hair . Using a towel, wrap all your hair. Some experts recommend that the towel be a little hot to increase the effects of the mask. Let it act for the necessary time and not for longer than indicated, as you can cause the product to lose all its effects.
  • Rinse your hair very well to remove the mask . After the hair mask has acted on your hair for the indicated time, rinse very well with plenty of water and, if possible, let your hair dry naturally, without using a dryer or iron.
