Mask for Curling Iron-Fried Hair

If your hair feels like straw, then it is fried and needs a fix. This mask will fix it easily.

Your hair needs a conditioner that penetrates the hair and moisturises it. Find one that contais any of keratin, Shea butter, Cetyl alcohol (a long chain fat that retain moisture), and better if it combines all, it is labeled for dry, damaged hair. Run throughout your hair and leave for 10 minutes.

- Deep conditioning is recommended twice a week the first couple weeks, then once a week

- Protect your hair with a shower cap when taking shower
because water is very drying to hair

      Hi there, I recently read somewhere on the the net that hibicus leave extract mixed with honey is a good way to reconsructs badly damaged hair, and the result is instant hair bounce and shine.

      Has any one tried this recipe? I certainly will try this in three weeks time.

      Can't wait to see my hair transformed.

      You can do more research on this.

      Hi Red Hawk,

      All the beautiful products you buy are made of this crap, they process it and earn money from you for that processing, it is way too much! We give you the method to reduce costs and be comfortable with what you use, and finally all is up to you.
