Frenchgate top tips:
- If you have straight hair, avoid using moisture masks more than twice a week, as they can make your roots greasy. Curly girls can NEVER have too much moisture and can use a mask daily.
- Protein masks should be used just once a week and left on for no more than 30 minutes. If there’s too much protein in your hair, it will be coated, dry and brittle.
- Wash your hair with shampoo, then apply the mask before conditioning. Shampoo opens up the hair cuticles, allowing the moisture from the mask to be absorbed and bonds to be rebuilt. Applying conditioner then seals in the goodness at the cuticle.
- Avoid your roots when applying a hair mask. Start from midway down your hair and massage the mask into your hair using your fingertips. Keep going until you reach the ends.
