What’s the difference between a hair mask and a conditioner? Don’t use the wrong one!

What is the difference between a hair mask and a conditioner? You can see the following three points first. Then I will give you a detailed explanation of the role of hair masks and conditioners and the correct usage.
1: Hair mask is for damaged hair; unique care products that fill internal hair cavities and fill the role of the epidermal layer of the hair bump, from the inside care hair.
2: Conditioner is a complementary product to shampoo, which can only increase the smoothness of the hair, but does not have the function of hair care.
3: Hair mask can improve the damaged state of the hair. Hair conditioners can only increase the lubrication of the hair. This is the difference.
From these three points, it can be seen that for damaged hair, hair masks are great for improving hair’s condition and increasing smoothness and shine. On the other hand, a conditioner can only add smoothness to hair after shampooing, and that’s about it.
Expanded knowledge: In order to let you understand more clearly the difference between hair masks and conditioners, I will address the two products below, give you a detailed explanation, and finally share the correct way to use hair masks and conditioners. After reading, you will understand.
1. The role of hair mask.
Hair film has extreme penetration and wrapping effect, and nutrients can enter the cortex layer of the hair, filling in the cavities formed by injuries, locking nutrients in the hair, and replacing the natural nutrients to nourish the hair. It will also wrap tightly around the epidermis of the hair, wrapping up the bumps formed by shedding, adding smoothness and shine to the hair, and preventing nutrient loss and moisture evaporation.
The molecular structure of the hair mask is microscopic and highly absorbent, allowing it to penetrate the inner cortical layer of the hair and fill in any holes or breakages caused by damage, to lock the nutrients into the hair over time.
The hair mask also contains a considerable keratin substance that wraps a film around the hair’s surface after application, giving it more shine and smoothness and prolonging the mask’s action.
However, the nutrients that go into the hair are slowly lost when shampooing, as the nutrients in the hair mask are manufactured substances. Although they can replace the nutrients in the hair, they are less stable, and each shampoo will take away some of the nutrients. And once the nutrients are lost, the hair will return to its dry state before the treatment.
Therefore, hair masks need to be done at least once a week to ensure that the nutrients in the hair build up to a saturated state, the hair will be improved, restore elasticity and toughness.
2. The role of conditioner.
Conditioner is a shampoo companion product. The main ingredients for cationic surfactants can neutralize the shampoo residue and anionic surfactants but also can be wrapped in a film on the hair to increase the smoothness of the role.
The molecular structure of the conditioner is large and cannot enter the hair’s interior but can only accumulate and wrap in the epidermis of the hair, so the role of the conditioner is limited to lubrication. Still, it does not have a real sense of the role of hair care.
So don’t expect a conditioner to improve your damaged hair. The damage is irreversible and can only be repaired temporarily with the help of the nutrients in the hair mask. The conditioner can neither improve the hair quality nor repair the hair but only prevent the hair from tangling and tangling when shampooing so that the hair lubricates some.
3. The correct way to use hair masks and conditioners.
Understanding the role of hair masks and conditioners, the following is an introduction to the use of these two products.
How to use the hair mask
After shampooing, wipe with a towel to the extent that it does not drip, take out an appropriate amount of hair mask and apply it gradually upwards from the tips of the hair to the healthy part without applying it. After applying evenly, gently rub the hair piece with the palm of your hand to help the hair absorb the nutrients in the hair mask. After rubbing for 3-5 minutes, wrap the hair with a shower cap, use an electric heating film or another heating device, and heat for 30 minutes.
Once heated, open the shower cap and let the hair cool to its natural temperature before rinsing the hair mask out of your hair with warm water. When rinsing, do not use shampoo, and do not use conditioner. Because the hair mask has a strong moisturizing effect, using shampoo will affect the effect, and using conditioner is also superfluous.
After shampooing, dry your hair with a hairdryer. The process of blow-drying is what helps the mask to coat the surface of the hair, so it must be dried. If you don’t blow dry, the effect will be significantly reduced.
How to use the conditioner
For dry, frizzy, severely damaged hair, moisten your hair before shampooing and apply conditioner first. Apply the conditioner to the damaged area, rub it in and comb through the hair repeatedly with your fingers, or use a wide tooth comb to smooth the hair and leave it for 5 minutes.
When shampooing, clean the conditioner from the hair, follow the normal shampooing process and wash the hair well. Finally, apply a little conditioner to the ends of the hair and rub for a few moments, making sure to wash the conditioner out to lubricate.
When shampooing normal hair, first wash your hair with shampoo and then use conditioner for lubrication to make the hair smoother and shinier.
These are the differences between hair masks and conditioners and how to use both products. Do you already know the difference between the two products?
Five ways to take care of your hair, if you do all of them, your hair will generally not be less, and your hair will be better.

Five ways to take care of your hair, if you do all of them, your hair will generally not be less, and your hair will be better.

Nothing is more frustrating than seeing your hair on your pillow, bed, sink, or comb, just where it should be – on your head. Many girls have some wig pieces on hand, intending to allow themselves to save their hair volume and hairline.
If you also have these troubles, you can look at the following, the small squid summed up the five small hair care methods. All do, hair volume is generally not less, and hair quality will also improve.
Method one: Insist on using conditioner. Hair will become softer and softer.
Most of the long-haired cuties have the situation of not being able to comb their hair. This is especially true for dry hair and for cuties who are often permed and dyed. After washing your hair or waking up in the morning, it is easy to have hair that cannot be combed. If you can’t comb your hair, it will easily cause hair breakage, split ends, and hair loss.
The conditioner works by quickly penetrating, repairing damaged hair phosphate, smoothing frizz, hydrating and moisturizing, and can directly affect our hair by smoothing it. By using conditioner after washing your hair, your hair will become smoother and smoother. Only by ensuring that hair is less prone to hair loss and hair fall will hair volume not become less and less, and hair quality will gradually improve.
Method 2: Hair fall is severe, and shampoo is one of the causes
There are countless brands and types of shampoos out there. There are just too many. It is easy to buy a shampoo unsuitable for your hair type without looking carefully at its effectiveness and type. So, when choosing a shampoo, choosing one based on your hair type is essential.
If your hair is dry, choose one that improves frizziness; if your hair is oily, choose one that eliminates oil; if your hair is damaged by perm or dye, choose one that nourishes and repairs. If you choose the right shampoo, the first step in hair care is complete.
Method 3: Before washing your hair, comb it out thoroughly
A lot of cute little people, washing hair is directly wet, and then squeeze some shampoo, and then directly open wash. After washing, there are handfuls of hair on the floor.
During the washing process, we use our hands to smooth our hair. The hot water opens up all the pores on our scalp, and we use our hands to comb our hair, which can easily fall out. By doing this often, the hair volume will get smaller and smaller. So, before you wash your hair, remember to comb it out with a comb! This is because we don’t comb out our hair after washing.
Method 4: Blow dryer to seventy percent dry. Hair is not easy to break.
After washing our hair, we all use the hair dryer to blow dry the hair habit. However, the long-term use of a hair dryer hair will make our hair moisture less and less, and high temperatures will make the hair scales damaged. Significantly, the hot, dyed, and pulled ladies have more fragile hair, and the hair dryer’s high temperature will worsen our hair quality.
Suppose you are not in a hurry to sleep after washing your hair. Tiny squid suggests that when using blowing hair, hair dryer to medium temperature, then blow dry the scalp, blow the end part of the hair to about 70% dry, and let it dry naturally. You can, and your hair is less likely to become frizzy, dry, and split ends. This is not recommended if, for example, you are going to bed soon.
Method 5: Eat foods such as black sesame, which are suitable for your hair
Hair is blood. If external stimuli do not damage a person’s hair, or if all the above 4 points are achieved, and the hair volume is still low, it is usually a blood deficiency.
If this is the reason, we can eat some black sesame seeds and red dates, which help replenish blood and hair.
If you do all of them, your hair volume will not be low, and your hair quality will improve. Have you all done it?
The way we’ve been washing our hair is wrong! What is the right way to wash your hair?

The way we’ve been washing our hair is wrong! What is the right way to wash your hair?

I believe many people suffer from hair loss. There are many reasons for hair loss, which may be related to people’s dietary habits, work and rest patterns, life stress, etc. But I wonder if you know incorrect hair washing habits cause hair loss. Today we will talk about the correct way to wash your hair.
1. Smooth out your hair before washing it
Combing your hair with a wide-tooth comb before washing not only helps to remove the dirt and dust from the inner layers of your hair but also reduces the amount of pulling on your scalp due to tangles and other problems when washing. If you’re already losing hair, you’ll lose even more if you tug. Combing your hair also tidies up some of the hair that has broken off but not yet fallen out. Especially for curly-haired girls, the curly ends often hide a lot of hair that has fallen out but is stuck inside, which can look particularly frizzy, and combing before washing can help alleviate this.
2. Control the water temperature
I believe many people wash their hair in the shower as a process, and the water temperature will be higher in winter. Still, too high a water temperature can damage the hair, making it fragile and prone to breakage, which in the long run will cause hair loss. In summer, cold water is not easy to remove grease and grime, so it’s best to control the water temperature so that your scalp doesn’t feel hot. Of course, everyone’s perception of hotness is different, so a water temperature of 30 to 40 degrees is reasonable. Warm water helps to promote the metabolism of dirt on the scalp, so you can cleanse better without damaging your hair.
3. Washing with your head down is better than washing with your head up
As with the above, washing and bathing is a one-step process, a shower from head to toe.
Generally speaking, there are two ways of washing in one process: to keep your face out of the water, but this is very easy to get your hair unclean, especially if you have long hair. The deeper roots, hairline, sideburns and other edges are more likely to have shampoo residue, leading to dandruff, itchiness and other problems. The second is to wash your face directly without avoiding water. The advantage of cleaning this way is that it is convenient, but in either case, there is more or less damage to the scalp or skin. The high water temperature in winter does harm not only the hair but also the skin on the face.
4. Shampoo should be gathered before it is applied to the scalp
I wonder if it is the habit of most people to squeeze shampoo and apply it directly to the scalp when washing their hair? There has been a lot of controversy over the fact that pouring shampoo on your head can cause hair loss.
Regardless of whether or not a large amount of shampoo on the scalp will cause hair loss, I prefer to lather before putting it on my head. The main reason for doing this is to reduce the damage caused by rubbing the shampoo directly on the scalp. Just as we rub our hands together before using face wash, if we rub the squeezed-out shampoo directly on our face, the friction will be extreme at the beginning and will cause damage to the skin over the years (except for foaming shampoos).
5. Some hair care products should not be applied directly to the hair
Conditioner or hair oil (except scalp care products) is mainly for hair care. Some ingredients in the conditioner, if applied directly on the scalp, will quickly clog the hair follicles, and rinsing is not easy to wash clean, affecting the health of the scalp and leading to increased oil production, dandruff and hair loss. Some girls with damaged and frizzy hair or short hair may put conditioner all over their head when washing their hair and, incidentally, their scalp, which is a mistake.
6. Blow dry your hair before going to bed
Sleeping with wet hair affects your health and damages your hair. Allow enough time for your hair to dry before going to bed. The contact between damp hair and the pillow during sleep is even more intense than that of dry hair. And after a night of rubbing, your hair is dry and styled, so when you wake up, it’s not just a matter of combing it out. Sometimes when you’re in a hurry to get out of the house in the morning, you’ll have to deal with the knots even more urgently, and a slight roughness will result in breakage and hair loss. In addition, once wet hair is laid on the pillow, the pillow will be wet, and it will be difficult to dry it by pressing it all night, and the bacteria that grows on the pad will rub around on your face, quickly leading to acne.
7. Wash your hair regularly
Although you don’t need to wash your hair every day, you do need to wash it once every two to three days. Even if you stay at home and don’t go out, there is not that much dust at home. But the scalp will still produce oil and dirt, long time not washing hair inside has hidden a lot of bacteria, head oil also clogged scalp, hair falls more powerful. This is not conducive to strong hair growth.
8. Change your shampoo once in a while
I can’t keep using the same shampoo for a long time, even if I think it works particularly well when I first start using it. If I use one brand of shampoo for several bottles in a row without changing it, I end up with itchy, dandruffy, super easy to get oily and hair fall in the later stages. When I switched to another shampoo, the situation improved a lot. After changing shampoos for a while, I don’t have that problem when I return to the previous one, so it’s not related to the shampoo itself. If you are in a similar situation, you can also try changing shampoos. It might help you.

If our hair is not trimmed for a long time, the end of the hair will become very hairy and dry. Bifurcation is also increasing, and hair quality is getting worse and worse, so we must regularly trim the hair. Usually, every two months trimming the end of the hair can remove the bifurcation of the hair and make the hair look more smooth. In the selection of comb, we recommend that you choose peach comb. During the winter, your hair can produce static electricity.
Using a wood comb can effectively improve static electricity; a plastic comb will produce a lot of static electricity, leading to our hair is not convenient. Using a wood comb can reduce hair damage. In addition, after we wash the head, when the hair is still wet, we should choose a wide-tooth comb to reduce the damage to our hair. Because when your hair is wet, it is often messy.
