Nourishing hair mask
Beautiful and healthy hair is not only the basis of a stylish look. A well-groomed hairstyle speaks, first of all, about the health of your body. In the modern world, it is especially important, because day after day we are in the grip of stress, overwork, lack of rest. All this affects our general condition, and even more so affects our hair. And in order to maintain your hair in excellent condition, you need to properly and regularly care for it.
Of course, nobody canceled the washing of the head, it will help cleanse the scalp and curls of dirt and greasy secretions, but it is unlikely to saturate the hair with the necessary vitamins. To do this, it is extremely important to make nourishing hair masks from time to time.. It is not only about salon professional procedures, but also about home care. And then you will be happy with your appearance, and your hairstyle will literally shine with health.
In order for the process of hair care to give the most positive result, you need to know your hair type exactly, otherwise the effect may be directly opposite to the expected one. Curls can be divided into four types: normal, dry, greasy, mixed.
But besides these features, a number of others should be taken into account: do the ends split, does dandruff bother, colored strands or not. Based on all these parameters, you need to choose the means for care.
Normal curls shine in the sun, they are smooth and elastic. As a rule, they do not split at the tips and just comb. If after the washing procedure these properties last for several days, then you have normal hair and you take good care of them.
Fatty strands are characterized by the presence of a dull oily sheen. And after a short time after the washing procedure, the curls again stick together and seem dirty. For such hair, you need to select the appropriate care, so that cleansing retains a lasting effect.
For dry curls, you should choose moisturizers. Such curls look the most lifeless. The lack of moisture leads to the fact that they simply break, get confused and actively split off at the tips. This may result from improperly selected care procedures.
For damaged strands, a restoring mask is perfect. It will saturate the strands with vitamins and useful minerals and will be very useful for the dermis of the head.
The mixed type is long hair, as it may be greasy on the roots, but dry and split ends. Moisturizing and regeneration of the tips occurs due to the selection of a good mask, which will comprehensively eliminate all problems.
For weakened strands, it is important to restore their health from the inside, which is possible due to proper care.
