Just like your skin, your hair too needs a mask. Why? Well, hair masking helps hydrate your tresses from roots to tips and adds a healthy shine. But with the numerous options available in the market, it can get pretty confusing when it comes to choosing the right one for your hair type. And picking any random one will never give you the desired results.
So, what’s a girl to do? First things first, take your hair type into consideration — is it dry, curly, oily or chemically processed? This will help you choose the right hair mask to address your hair concerns.
Dry, damaged or colour-treated hair
If your hair appears dry, damaged or lacks moisture then using a hydrating hair mask will give it a boost of nourishment and keep dryness at bay. Using a mask regularly will also boost hair growth. The TIGI Bed Head Urban Anti and Dotes Resurrection Treatment Mask is infused with glycerine that moisturises, conditions and nourishes hair by treating seriously damaged hair.
Curly or coarse hair
Curly hair is naturally dry, thus, using a hair mask becomes a must for girls with this hair type. Using a hair mask once a week will add shine and bounce to your curls. The Toni&Guy Damaged Repair Reconstruction Hair Mask has the ability to repair and strengthen each curl and strand. It penetrates the hair cuticles to treat both interior and exterior hair fibres.
Fine or thin hair
This hair type is limp in nature and does not require heavy nourishing ingredients as they can weigh your hair down making it look thinner. Light-weight hydrating ingredients jojoba oil can work wonders for your hair type. If the shaft and tips are looking drier than usual, use your hair conditioner as a mask. Apply it on dry hair and cover with a shower cap; leave on for about 30 minutes before rinsing off.
Having an oily scalp or hair means your hair does not require a lot of external hydration. Since you want to nourish hair without making it look oilier, stick to hair masks that contain antioxidants and vitamins that help promote a healthy scalp. Applying coconut oil to the tips of your hair and wrapping it in a hot towel for 30 minutes is enough. Do this only a once a month.
