If you have synthetic chevelure extensions, then they don't need home-made masks. You can purchase a specialised mask to soften chevelure. More often than not, damaged synthetic chevelure cannot be repaired, so you will need to buy new ones if it deteriorates. Remember to use a heat protectant to keep your synthetic chevelure looking good.
Why do you need to do hair masks at home?
Chevelure continually suffers from the harmful effects of weather factors, and it is also adversely affected by poor urban ecology, permanent stress, unhealthy diet, and lack of vitamins. Styling products, curling, straightening, dyeing, and other hairdressing procedures also hurt the chevelure’s condition.
You need to provide chevelure with adequate nutrition to restore a healthy chevelure structure, give it shine, and masks will help you with this. Masks at home are easy to prepare, and they will be much more useful than balms. Store-bought products can only be used as a temporary measure and do not provide the full range of nutrients. This cosmetic feeds the chevelure along its entire length, makes stronger the roots, averts chevelure loss, and provides overall health.
You need to check if you have an allergic reaction before selecting a cosmetic and using it to your chevelure. Do not hold the consistency for too long, or if you feel discomfort. After home-made masks, you should thoroughly wash your chevelure and do not forget about the conditioner.
Home-made cosmetics are great for both weakened and healthy and strong chevelure. While you are restoring your chevelure, use chevelure extensions to add volume and create a beautiful look.
