What is a Hair Mask?
Most of us are familiar with face masks and how they benefit stressed-out skin in order to improve its health and condition. Well, it’s not much different to how a hair mask can help to transform hair which has been damaged through over-processing, heat-styling, and the changing weather.
There are lots of perks to this time of the year – cozy fireplaces, Christmas lights, pumpkin spice lattes, and a festive atmosphere. But one aspect of this time of year that is most definitely not a perk is the havoc it can reap on the condition of your hair. We are all used to the effects of hot weather on our hair as it can be very drying and frizz inducing, but cold weather is essentially just as bad. Swapping between the cold, blustery weather outside to the drying heat of indoors is wrecking the condition of your hair, leading to split ends and breakage as the cuticle lifts from the strand. This happens to all hair types, but unfortunately, for those of us with colored or coarse hair it can be even more damaging, and this just isn’t an option if we wish to maintain luscious locks.
Ever get that sinking feeling when your hair simply won’t do what it’s supposed to? Well, you’re certainly not alone. A recent survey by a leading haircare brand showed that nearly 80% of women said their mood was influenced by their hair. Even psychologists agree that there’s a link between bad hair days and our self-esteem.
Tumbling curls are the epitome of beautiful hair. Yet, as those blessed with curly locks know all too well, bad hair days come around way too often. The key to gorgeous tresses is to ensure its robust health—something that can be achieved with a careful hair regime and the use of some strategic products.
Using quality oil as a hair treatment is an excellent method to keep hair in tip-top condition. However, for the best effect, it’s necessary to follow a reasonably structured approach as opposed to slicking any old oil on your hair day after day.
Love swimming but hate chlorine? You’re certainly not alone. Thankfully, a few strategic steps can effectively prevent the damage it can cause, and yes, that includes colored hair too.
We drink water to moisturize our skin from the inside out, take various supplements for heart health, and still more to boost brainpower. But what about our hair? Surely our tresses also deserve a bit of love when it comes to the nutrition stakes?
Our hair puts up with a lot. From heat styling to chemicals that color, straighten, and curl, most of us are guilty of hair abuse on an infinite scale. Yet we still expect it to be glossy, shiny, and strong.
