It is important to observe the appropriate time for each type of mask, since the speed of action of the various ingredients is different. Perederzhivat mask is harmful, although at first glance it may seem that there is nothing wrong with that.
It is important that the mixture is always homogeneous, so if you use raw materials that tend to evaporate, it is recommended to heat it in a microwave or in a water bath before preparing the product. But be careful: do not apply the mask until it cools to room temperature, as you can not only get burned, but also damage your hair.
In addition, if you are using fruit with firm pulp, use a blender or other tool to turn the ingredient into mush. Badly shredded pieces may get tangled in the hair.
When mayonnaise is included in the formula, it is best to use a homemade product that does not contain harmful substances.
