Just like people have combination skin, with some dry patches on the face and some oily, some of us have combination hair i.e greasy roots and dry ends. The trouble with combination hair is that if you use products meant for dry hair, then your roots become oily, and if you use products meant for greasy hair then your ends become dry like a bird’s nest. Which is why I decided to share a tip with you today for combination hair. Some of you might be aware of this, but in case you aren’t, here is something that I call multi-masking for the hair.
So basically, if you have combination hair like mine, use a shampoo and conditioner/mask meant for oily hair, so that your roots don’t look greasy and your hair becomes voluminous. However, when using the conditioner or mask, mix in some oil such as argan oil, almond oil or olive oil in the product that you apply to the dry regions of your hair only. For the rest of your hair, use the mask without the oil mixed in it. Keep the mask on for 5-10 minutes, or as per the usage instructions, and then rinse it off. This method ensures that the oil is able to add extra hydration to your dry ends but does not add greasiness to the rest of your hair. Since the excess oil gets washed off along with the mask, there are no chances of it somehow reaching your roots while brushing your hair etc, which is something that happens with leave on serums and oils. This trick is something that gives me the best results with my hair and makes it look smooth yet voluminous from the roots to the ends.
