Hair Treatments at Home
Looking for a good hair treatment to help protect your hair while at home? We're here to give you all the necessary tips on how hair treatments work and how you can best look after your locks!
Hair treatments are beneficial as they penetrate into the cortex of the hair, helping to rebuild the protein and moisture of the cortex. Hair treatments are different from a conditioner, for example, which are designed to be used after every wash. A conditioner will seal the cuticle and will also add the cosmetic feel of moisture, protein or even both.
How to use a hair treatment?
Hair treatments or masques should be used once a week. The best time to apply a treatment is after you shampoo and towel dry your hair. Once moisture has been removed apply the treatment from the ends up and leave for between 10-15 minutes. Then rinse your hair until the water runs clear and the hair feels free from all product.
How to Assess What Your Hair Needs?
Assessing what your hair needs is key to picking the right treatment at the right time. You can do this by performing a simple elasticity test, which will tell you all you need to know. To do this take a couple of strands of hair and gently stretch them, if the hair bounces back like an elastic band this means the hair is in good condition, if it doesn't stretch at all it means that the hair needs moisture, and if the hair stretches but keeps stretching and doesn’t bounce back it needs protein.
