Does this need to be applied to wet or dry hair. I just had my hair and trying to repair it from Color Remover from a Salon. And I want to repair my hair naturally without spending salon prices.
Apply the mask to dry hair for best results, making sure to focus on the end. Also, use the mask as often as you can for at least a month, and you’ll start noticing a big difference in the health of your hair 🙂
