Before applying the hydration mask, the head is washed with shampoo to eliminate the residues present and, after removing all the shampoo, apply the mask and let it act for 5 to 10 minutes according to the product used. Then, rinse the head thoroughly and use the conditioner to seal the strands, ensuring hydration and softness of the hair.
It is also important to pay attention to the amount of shampoo used during washing, because when using a large amount of shampoo the porosity of the threads can increase, leaving the threads more dry and brittle. Therefore, it is recommended that a sufficient amount of shampoo be used to eliminate residues.
