Mask for dry hair: express repair of damaged hair at home
As a result of frequent staining, use of a hair dryer and other styling products, the hair becomes dry, dull and lifeless. The ends begin to split and break, resulting in hair thinning, losing volume and attractive appearance.
Naturally, it is better to prevent, weeks to heal. But, unfortunately, we do not always see the problem on time and try to eliminate it, so sometimes we have to resort to highly effective means that in a short period of time will help restore life and strength to hair.
And as always, folk medicine comes to our aid, which for many centuries collected the best recipes of beauty. But before I tell you about the recipes for making masks for dry hair, I would like to talk about nutrition and about proper care for overdried and damaged locks. If you adhere to these recommendations, you can very quickly achieve the desired effect.
If you have dry and lifeless hair, pay attention to your diet and digestive system. The use of oily and harmful food affects not only your weight, but also the condition of your hair. They do not get all those healthy substances that are contained in healthy food, and the metabolic processes that take place in them slow down, and this also greatly affects the condition of the curls.
The state of hair is also affected by bad habits. If you smoke or drink alcohol in large quantities, then you'd better give it up. Smoking and alcohol strongly affect the nervous system, which makes a person nervous and more prone to nervous breakdowns. And this also does not have a very good effect on the hair.
Also the condition of the hair depends on your lifestyle. If you have a sedentary lifestyle, then your body slows down metabolic processes, and this leads to the fact that the supply of nutrients to the follicles decreases and, accordingly, the hair ceases to receive the necessary amount of nutrients.
And, of course, very much on the condition of the hair reflects their frequent coloring and the daily use of a hair dryer for drying them. They overdry and burn hair, moisture stops in them to linger, resulting in hair becoming brittle and dull.
It is worth at least for the time of treatment to abandon the use of chemical and styling agents. And then use them only as needed.
And in order for home masks for dry hair to give positive results, you need to follow some rules when preparing and using them. Namely:
- it is impossible to use food products and medicines in the manufacture of masks, if their expiration date has expired;
- it is impossible to use the mask after three hours from the moment of its preparation;
- it is impossible to restrain a mask on hair. If the exact time of exposure of the home remedy is not specified in the prescription, then the mask should be kept on the hair for 30-40 minutes;
- after applying the mask on the hair you need to wrap your head with polyethylene and a towel;
- is recommended to wash hair with warm water using shampoo;
- after the mask is washed, the hair should be rinsed with herbal infusion( if it is necessary to use chamomile infusion if the dark is nettle) or water with the addition of lemon juice( for light hair).

Provide additional protection for dry hair will help gelatinous mask. Thanks to the glutinous consistency, gelatin envelops every hair and provides them with protection, protecting against external irritants and brittleness. And also promotes retention of moisture inside the hairs.
