For many women, the exact effect of a hair mask is unclear. What exactly is a vegan hair mask, what does a hair mask do and what is the difference between a hair mask and a conditioner? This text answers all these questions!
What exactly is a vegan hair mask?
A hair mask is a product that can be used after using shampoo. Most vegan hair masks contain many caring ingredients and oils that nourish and protect your hair. The ingredients and oils are completely animal-free and have not been tested on animals.
Using a hair mask is simple. The product should be applied to wet, clean hair. It is important to apply a hair mask especially to the ends of the hair because these need the most care. After application, a hair mask should be absorbed into the hair for a few minutes. After these minutes, the mask should be carefully rinsed out with water.
What does a hair mask do and how does it work?
A hair mask has a protective effect on your hair, creating a nourishing and protective layer around your hair. This layer creates a beautiful shine in the hair. By using a hair mask, your hair is better protected, for example against dryness or split ends. Using a hair mask can also ensure that your hair is protected against heat, both from straighteners and blow dryers and from the sun.
What is the difference between a hair mask and a conditioner?
A hair mask is not the same as a conditioner, which is why both conditioner and a hair mask can be used after washing the hair with shampoo. The main difference between a hair mask and a conditioner is the percentage of water the products contain. Hair masks contain a lower percentage of water than conditioners. In relative terms, hair masks contain more usable ingredients than conditioners. As a result, hair masks are often thicker and firmer in structure than conditioners.
Using a hair mask can be an important addition to hair care. After the use of a nourishing shampoo and conditioner, a hair mask can add extra nourishment and care to the hair.
