Hair is one of the most important elements that make up your overall look. When you have an attractive lock of hair, you can catch the attention of a lot of people. On the contrary, when you have dull hair devoid of luster or shine, you can also pass by people and just go unnoticed.
To make your hair look its best, there is a need for a routine hair care that will make your locks achieve health and shine. This means that you should take care of your hair all the time. The hair must be kept clean by washing, letting it air-dry, and protecting it from the elements such as smog, smoke, and dirt; and from extreme temperatures.
Another thing that must be done regularly for the hair is to apply a nourishing mask that will help the hair cope up with taking back its shine or luster and make it healthier. Masks can be bought in cosmetic shops and drugstores, or they can be made at home from ingredients that are surely found in your kitchen cupboard, pantry, or refrigerator.
The most well-known homemade hair mask for shiny hair used by many people is the lightly beaten eggs applied to damp hair. The substances of the eggs are allowed to work better when left on the scalp with the help of a little massage. This will be done for about a quarter of an hour. Afterwards, it will be rinsed off by using lukewarm water.
When you want something more refreshing, try mashing up the flesh of a ripe avocado and apply it to the hair. The avocado can be combined with bananas and olive oil since both these products has the same effect on the hair. It leaves the hair silky soft and shiny as can be.
Many people also use this mask for their damaged hair. After putting on the mask for some time, the effects can be seen through the hair strands which look like these have gone through treatment with chemical dyes or have undergone perms.
When you have the freedom of time during weekends or holidays, try applying a little almond oil or olive oil on your scalp, cover it up with a shower cap, then allow the oil to work its magic for a few hours. Other people do this and leave the oil on their hair overnight.
Rinse thoroughly afterwards, then style it the way you want. You will then notice that your hair will be healthier and stronger than ever.
Whatever choice of natural mask that you make, the important thing is that your hair can benefit from the best possible care it is afforded. If the preparation of this all natural-mask seems messy and a lot of trouble for you, the alternative of going to a salon and letting the pros do their thing is always possible.
