Hair mask is a simple yet effective solution for this and we have come to love it. But not every time we get the results we want!

Every hair requirement and type is different and therefore the treatment also varies. While picking a hair mask, pay heed to what your hair needs. If you have dry tresses, get a nourishing mask and if you have oily scalp, a clay mask is better suited for you. So choose wisely.

Just applying the mask isn’t enough as you may leave out some strands. Comb through to make sure you have got the product to the very last tip. But remember to use a wide comb as fine tooth comb tends to pull the product. Also your hair is wet and fragile and may break.
