Environmental pollutants can have an equally detrimental effect on your hair as they can do on skin. Precisely why your hair needs that extra TLC by way of a hair mask that nourishes and repairs hair damage.
While you may already know that a mask is beneficial for dry and damaged hair, there are certain rules to hair masks that you probably didn’t know about…
What should you opt for?
If you’re looking for a product that will hydrate your hair and make it look shiny and lustrous, we recommend the Toni & Guy Nourish Reconstruction Hair Mask. This hair mask provides intense nourishment to your hair and leaves it looking soft and shiny.
How often should you use it?
Even if your hair appears to be undamaged, it may be lacking the nourishment and shine it needs. Stressful lifestyles, sun damage, greasy foods, and irregular sleeping habits can all lead to lifeless-looking hair. Use a hair mask once a week, similar to how you would oil your hair, to help make it strong and nourished.
What to focus on?
Remember that the ends of your hair need the most attention. When you use a hair mask on the ends, you can prevent breakage and split ends.
How much should you use?
A little goes a long way when it comes to hair masks! Just a tablespoon of the product is enough to apply to your hair. If you use too much, your hair will end up feeling greasy so make sure you don’t overdo it.
Is there any step post application?
Make sure you evenly distribute the hair mask through your hair by combing it through with a wide-tooth comb. This will help the mask be applied to every strand of hair.

WHY YOUR HAIR NEEDS A HEAT PROTECTANT
We all know the feeling of wanting to look our best before heading out for the day or night. We also know how good it feels to use heat styling products to achieve that picture-perfect look.
But as much as we love them, we have to remember that they can cause damage to our hair over time – making it dry, frizzy, and more prone to breakage. That’s precisely why your hair needs a heat protectant! Here are three reasons why using a heat protectant can benefit your hair and help keep it looking healthy and shiny:
- Heat protectants help create a barrier between your hair and the damaging effects of heat styling tools.
- Heat protectants can help keep your hair hydrated, preventing it from becoming dry and frizzy.
- Heat protectants can help prevent breakage and split ends caused by heat damage.
Before you begin
Before you use a heat protectant and follow with a heat styling product, make sure your hair is healthy and nourished. For that, you should cleanse your hair with the TRESemmé Ionic Strength Shampoo and Conditioner. The shampoo contains a salon grade ionic complex, which will nourish your hair and leave it healthy.
The conditioner will also lend it moisture, making it hydrated and ready for the hair styling process. Once you’ve cleansed your hair, you need to let it dry and then opt for a heat protectant, the benefits of which are as follows…
When it’s humid out or you’re using hot styling tools, it’s easy for your hair to become dull and damaged. Heat protectants help smooth the cuticles in your hair shaft, which helps fight frizz and humidity.
Heat styling products can end up robbing your hair of moisture if you’re not careful. This is where a heat protectant comes in handy because it can help to restore moisture to your hair before you start styling. This way, you’re conditioning your hair and helping to prevent damage from the heat.
Makes hair manageable
The Toni – Guy Heat Protection Mist is a new product that protects your hair against breakage caused by styling, while also creating a moisture barrier to protect your hair from dryness.
COULD BANANAS BE THE SECRET TO SHINIER HAIR?
Bananas are not only delicious and nutritious, but they can also do wonders for your hair! For example, did you know that bananas can help strengthen your hair and give it a softer, smoother texture? Here’s how…
If you have dry and damaged hair, a banana mask can help to condition your hair and increase moisture levels. All you need to do is make a banana pulp and add 3 drops of almond oil, then massage it into your hair. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes before rinsing off.
Bananas are rich in vitamins and minerals, making them a great natural remedy for brittle hair. The nutrients in bananas help to improve the elasticity of hair, making it less likely to suffer from split ends. To use bananas to treat split ends, simply mix the pulp with yogurt and leave it on your hair for 20 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water.
Treats scalp conditions
Bananas are a great natural remedy for scalp conditions like dandruff and an itchy scalp. This is because they contain magnesium, which has anti-inflammatory properties. This means that a banana hair pack or hair mask can help to soothe and treat these conditions.
