Now that you know the best mask options, it’s time to learn the correct way to use them, don’t you think?

How to use a reconstructive mask step by step

  1. Hygienize the wires only with shampoo;
  2. Remove excess water from the wires;
  3. Make a part of the hair, the more parts the better;
  4. Apply from length to ends, without touching the root and massage;
  5. Leave for the time indicated on the package;
  6. The ideal is to have a form of heat to open the hair cuticle and the product to penetrate the hair better, such as climazon, sun or thermal touch;
  7. Rinse without using conditioner.

The frequency of treatment depends on whether the hair is natural or bleached. The natural one needs maintenance every 15 days or once a month to maintain its shine. If you have discoloration or porosity, it is recommended to use every week.

In addition, before using any product on the hair, it is necessary to evaluate the type of wire to identify the need. Thus, you will analyze whether the hair needs a shine mask, a reconstructor or just a deeper hydration.

Renata also explains that it is important to check the type of hair and the product so as not to weigh too much. This is because if the hair is very porous, the product will not give the expected result.
