Make oil the base substance
Whether you have naturally glamorous hair or you are someone who depends on hair extensions to bring the best of your personality to the forefront, essential oils do only good to you. So, whatever be your choice of hair mask, oil being the base of it, will help you replenish your tresses. Honey/coconut masks, avocado/coconut hair mask and many other are there for you to choose. Women with oily hair can avoid oil-based masks.
Never miss out the hair ends
Whether it is the split ends or the dryness, the most fragile part of your hair are the ends of the strands. When you apply the masks or even do regular conditioning, DO NOT forget to pay attention to the ends of your hair. Once you see the split ends coming, go for the trim as it was mentioned in the last blog. Worrying about the short length is not a problem because clip in hair extensions are made for times like these.
Do not forget to condition after the hair mask
Though it is mandatory for the person to shampoo and condition the hair after the mask is removed, some put a full stop to the process after shampooing itself. However, in order to remove even the smallest particles of the mask, one needs to wash it properly with both shampoo and conditioner.
It is never too late to start taking care of your hair. Though it is better to start early but a stitch in time saves nine and we hope this blog would do the needful for you.
