How to Apply Hair Mask Properly

Get a nourishing and moisturizing hair mask treatment at home! Here's how.

Hair masks are popular hair treatments because of their nourishing and moisturizing qualities. They are also readily available in personal care stores and online shops. If you’re in for some hair pampering and salon experience at home, why don’t you give yourself a hair mask treatment? Here’s how to do it.

Hair Mask Treatment at Home

Before you start with your at-home hair mask treatment, it’s best to change into a robe. You can also wrap a big piece of plastic around your shoulders like a cape to protect your clothes.

Have your towel and shower cap ready, too! You’re gonna need them.

Now, follow these easy steps:

Give your tresses a hair mask treatment once a week or every other week, depending on your hair type, to keep it smooth and nourished. If you have dry and damaged hair, you might need to do the treatment more often because your hair needs all the nourishment it can get.

A Brazilian blowout does wonders for your hair but it can be really expensive. Why don’t you try VitaKeratin Brazilian Straight instead? It has Vitamin B3 that nourishes every strand and helps give you straighter hair without visiting the salon. Plus, it has Brazilian nut oil that coats the strands from roots to tips to achieve smooth and frizz-free hair.

Bonus Tip: You can also create a DIY hair mask!

If you’re more of a naturals seeker, you can make your own hair treatment using common ingredients found at home. You can try rice water treatment for hair growth. An aloe vera mask also has lots of benefits like strengthening your hair, getting rid of excess oil, and calming an itchy scalp.

Whatever hair mask you choose, make sure you apply it properly so your hair can soak in all the nutrients and moisture present in your mask. And don’t forget to make it a relaxing experience, too. Schedule it on a lazy Saturday afternoon and give your hair some downtime.
