Most of us prefer to use a hair mask before we apply a conditioner. Why is this? The main reason is that the former will prevent you from getting skin irritations.
Hair is extremely oily and that oil is only there because it has been preserved by the shampoo you used and the conditioner you applied. However, it is only natural for your scalp to feel a little bit uncomfortable and it may also become irritated with the rubbing that happens when you apply a conditioner to it.
You should, therefore, start by applying a mask before you apply a conditioner. It will prevent your scalp from irritation and if you happen to have a scalp allergy then this will help to reduce the number of products that you are using.
Hair Mask Before Or After Conditioner?
You can easily make a hair mask by taking a piece of dry ice, wrapping it in a cloth, sealing it with a hot glue gun and you are all set. You can either add a few drops of lemon or lime juice to the ice cube before you put it in the microwave for about one minute or you can freeze some wafers and then dip them into the water and let them cool.
You can add a few drops of lemon or lime juice to the wafers and then dip them in the water and then allow them to cool. All you need to do now is to dip your scalp in the mixture for about thirty seconds, with the end result being a small handful of your own “condensed” wafer. Now take this handful and rinse off using warm water.
In order to avoid this from happening you should add a few drops of olive oil to the mixture before you put it in the microwave. The reason why olive oil is very good for your skin is that it moisturizes your skin and it contains vitamin E which is an antioxidant. Antioxidant acts as a sort of shield which protects the body from excessive UV rays and it also helps to protect the skin from dryness.
At the same time, if you apply a conditioner to your scalp before using a mask then you will be able to get the maximum benefit from the conditioner without being subject to irritation. You should, however, make sure that you are using a good quality conditioner as sometimes there are strong fragrances in the conditioners that may irritate your skin.
Moreover, you should avoid applying a conditioner to your scalp before you use a mask. This is because the conditioner can cause your skin to become irritated, especially if it contains chemicals that cause dryness. If this happens you should use a mild conditioner that contains some natural ingredients.
How to use a conditioner
If you have recently used a conditioner and it did not make any difference then you should continue to use it for a couple of days. Once you have used it for a week or so you should switch to another brand.
If you have sensitive skin then you should avoid conditioners that contain alcohol as they are not good for your skin. On the other hand, you should also use conditioners that contain aloe Vera which is a good source of Vitamin A and which will give you a healthy glowing complexion.
When you use a mask, it is also best to avoid alcohol as it may irritate your skin. However, you should not switch to a new brand as this is often difficult because you will get attached to one brand which may become expensive.
When you are trying to use a hair mask you should try to avoid chemicals such as preservatives which may cause irritation to your skin. If you feel that you are having problems with your skin then you should see a dermatologist and have him recommend a new product that is beneficial to your skin.
