"In today's day, the attempt to stay fashionable by experimenting with hair colours and using chemicals and heat devices can severely impact healthy hair growth. Given the repeated exposure to such stressors, hair masks can prove to be saviors! Regular application of a hair mask is a great way to achieve soft, manageable, and a lustrous hair texture. By doing so, you can reverse damage and leave your locks feeling more hydrated and nourished." - Dr Simal Soin, Aayna Clinic
"There are fewer hair products for an oily scalp and this is one that can double up as a mask as well as a cleanser! Enriched with absorbent clay, it controls the scalp sebum and reduces the need to shampoo each and every day," states Dr Soin.
"For hair that lacks volume and looks particularly dull, limp, and lifeless, this mask containing hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and peptides works in giving your tresses more body, weight, and bounce," she adds.
"The two key ingredients, collagen and biotin reduce hair breakage and avoid split ends. Additionally, they also help improve the hair shaft, strength, and density" says Dr Soin.
