Leaving It On Longer Isn’t Always Better – BioSilk Hydrating Therapy Deep Moisture Masque
All the stylists have different ways and beliefs on how to process hair masks. I think the best thing is always to apply on clean and moist hair – remember that each mask has its own system and its technology. For this reason, the treatment will start from the shampoo that prepares the hair to receive the nutrients that the mask will contribute to. It is wrong to think that more time is better – this is a big mistake. Each mask has its own process time between 5 – 10 – 15 or 20 minutes. It is important to always follow the instructions because sometimes leaving a mask for longer can make hair heavy and opaque. Everything depends on whether the mask is for nourishing, moisturizing, repairing or polishing.
