Once simply referred to as a conditioning treatment, modern hair masks are deep conditioning applications that are performed to heal hair that’s been damaged from a variety of sources. The formulas that are used are much more complex than in the past and contain ingredients that many people hadn’t even heard of a decade ago.
Your hair faces the potential for damage from styling, blow drying, flat irons, dry environments, and the elements. Even if your hair is typically healthy, the change of seasons can adversely affect your locks. Modern hair masks contain natural oils, lipids, and larger concentrations of conditioners than usual to restore nutrients. It’s left on for a specific amount of time, allowing it to work its magic.
The best news is that your hair doesn’t have to be severely damaged for it to benefit from a hair mask. There are dozens of hair masks that can be purchased for home use and if you choose that route rather than going to a salon, look for products that contain ingredients such as almond, oil, avocado, jojoba, and/or olive oil.
You may even find honey or bananas listed in the ingredients and those are good, too. Eggs are typically included in a hair mask for their protein value. If you’re making your own mask, be sure to separate the yolks from the whites, since egg whites have a drying effect.
Different companies have their own proprietary formulas and yogurt is a popular ingredient as it contains lactic acid. It has antifungal properties and it’s an exfoliant that aids in removing dead skin from the scalp and microscopic bits of scale from hair. It also aids in restoring elasticity, strength, and smoothing tresses.
There are different types of hair masks to accommodate any hair type, including color-treated hair. Lavish some luxury on your hair. It will appreciate the effort and you’ll love how soft, shiny and manageable it is.
