Ask a Stylist: Hair Masks
So we all know that hair masks are great and that they are SO beneficial for our hair… but how am I supposed to be using them? Is this like an everyday thing? Is this a one size fits all? Wait, was I supposed to put conditioner in after I rinsed it out? WAS I SUPPOSED TO RINSE IT OUT???
How often should you use a hair mask?
Does a hair mask replace conditioner?
OKAY COOL - BUT HOW DOES IT WORK?
Let’s jump into the science behind these ingredients:
A combination of ginger root, creatine, and expanding polymer instantly offers hair more volume by strengthening the hair fibres and plumping the hair. Aminexil is the star ingredient featured in the Genesis Homme serum that prevents hair loss. Using the full Genesis Homme product line gives your hair a cocktail of goodness resulting in hair that will look fuller in no time.
GINGER ROOT provides a number of benefits for hair. First, it stimulates blood flow which leads to increased hair growth. Second, ginger root has been shown to reduce scalp problems, like dandruff, thanks to its antimicrobial properties. Third, it is an antioxidant which helps prevent split ends and breakage. And finally, the fatty acid chains in ginger root act as a deep conditioner for creating strong, healthy hair!
CREATINE repairs and strengthens hair fibres from the inside out. Creatine is a naturally-occurring derivative of amino acids, whose purpose in hair products is to help to boost cell metabolism and deeply moisturize dry scalps and hair. It also provides protection against heat damage and harmful UV rays. All of these benefits lead to fuller hair!
AMINEXIL is a bit of a superstar around here. It works by widening the blood vessels and promoting greater blood flow to the hair follicles - and of course more blood flow = more nutrients = happy hair! Aminexil works to prevent hair loss while stimulating re-growth, resulting in longer, thicker, and fuller hair. Additionally, Aminexil creates a more supple, hospitable scalp environment by gently melting collagen buildup that can otherwise harden causing breakage and damage.
Fun Fact: Research has shown that Aminexil counteracts hair loss in the Spring and maintains hair density in the Fall, a process influenced by the different phases of hair growth
