General information about hair masks
Such masks do not have to be applied to the scalp, the main thing is to treat the hair. It is better to apply them before you are going to wash your hair, in most cases they contain oils, which can only be washed off with shampoo. More often than others, you need to use such masks for those who have dry hair, but if the hair is prone to oily content, you do not need to constantly moisturize your hair. A homemade mask cannot be stored for a long time, so prepare the mixture before direct application. In order to prevent hair dehydration, make masks every 7-9 days, after active damaging procedures (coloring, permanent), it is allowed to make a mask every 2-3 days.

Fill five grams of yeast with a small amount of warm water, after 10 minutes add a teaspoon of burdock and castor oil each, dilute the resulting mixture with the juice of two onions. We keep the mask on the wrapped head for 45 minutes. Then, to remove the onion odor, rinse your hair with warm water and lemon juice.
