Why use a hair mask?

Hair masks are quick solutions for many hair problems like- dandruff, hair fall, itchy scalp, roughness, infections, and many more. We waste a lot of our hard-earned money in beauty salons and chemical treatments, which despite solving our problems, make our hair condition worse. Hair masks are cheaper and better alternatives to costly hair treatments. Hair masks not only nourish your hair in a healthy organic way but also saves your hard-earned money. Indian women love to flaunt their beautiful hair, and hair masks save the game.

How to make a hair mask?

Hair masks are very easy to make. You can find most of the ingredients in your kitchen, and the left ones from any local shops. You have to mix the ingredients in a proportion, and your mask is ready to apply. Sometimes you need to grind the items with the help of your mixer-grinder, and sometimes you have to mix the ingredients simply. You can also store the left out of the prepared mask in your fridge for up to a week.

How to apply a hair mask?

I advise you to read all the sections of this article properly to get better results because people sometimes know the right things but lack the point when it comes to its application. Let us see the right way in steps for the use of hair masks.

Homemade hair masks are easy to use, but you should make sure to apply them in the following steps to get better results for your hair problems-


  • The first and most crucial step is to find out hair masks according to your hair type. Then make a mask for your hair with the mentioned ingredients for your hair type.
  • Change your dress before applying a hair mask, because some masks can stain your clothes. I will suggest you should wear an old dark-colored top while using hair masks.
  • For best results, hair masks should be applied to washed and towel-dried hair. I mean to say that you should wash your hair with a mild shampoo to remove any dirt from your scalp, then dry your hair with a towel. And now you are ready for the next step.
  • Now make sections of your hair per the thickness of your hair: thicker the hair, more the partitions.
  • The application should not be superficial only. You should apply from the root to the tip. Cover each segment of your hair to get better results.
  • Cover your hair with a hot thick towel to double the efficiency of the mask. Little heat helps in opening pores of our scalp and helps the hair strand to engulf the moisture and essential elements of the mask.
  • Leave the mask on your hair according to your hair type- timings to put all kinds of hair masks are mentioned along with individual mask types.
  • Now rinse your hair with normal water(in some cases you need to wash with luke-warm water). Rinse thoroughly, till you see clean water running out of your hair.
  • In some cases, you will need to apply mild shampoo to cover up the smell of ingredients, if any. But it is better to avoid shampoos just after applying hair masks.
  • Dry your hair with the help of a hairdryer, and you are ready to shine and flaunt your healthy-looking hair.

What are the Benefits of a hair mask?

Applying hair masks gives you tons of benefits. If implemented in accordance with your hair type, hair masks can do magic with your hair quality. Some of the benefits of using a hair mask are:

  • Your hair will look healthier and nourished.
  • You will see an added shine to your hair.
  • Any scalp related problems like- itching, dandruff, etc. will go away if you use hair masks regularly.
