Thanks to kefir, the smell of onion is not felt as strongly as in other cases. To achieve the desired result, the mask must be performed twice a week, a total of 30-40 procedures.

How much to keep a mask for hair from a bow?

Recommendations on how much to keep a mask for hair from a bow depend on the presence of additional ingredients, the type and condition of the hair, the purpose of the procedure, the individual characteristics of the skin. The main threat is that high concentrations of aggressive substances can cause burns to the epidermal cells.

In general, the exposure time ranges from 20 minutes to 2 hours. Some masks are used for the whole night, but in such compositions, not softer, but softer components predominate.

  • To bow for the hair did not bring harm, it should be used regularly, but not too often. Before the first procedure, do the testing, and then follow the sensations: does pain, burning, itching bother you?

The effect is noticeable after the first procedures. At a minimum, the number of fallen hairs decreases, and soon the braids fed by useful components begin to look much more beautiful and well-groomed. Organic acids accelerate the regeneration of damaged cells, potassium moisturizes, niocin strengthens the follicles, and trace elements improve the structure.

Depending on the scale of the problem, the treatment is carried out for about 2 months, carrying out measures to eliminate the smell. It is better not to wash the head before applying, in order to preserve the natural protection against aggressive impact.

How to get rid of the smell after the onion hair mask?

Persistent pungent odor, which the procedure inevitably leaves, many have discouraged them from strengthening their hair with this method. Therefore, the question of how to get rid of the smell after the onion mask for the hair comes to the fore. To use the bow for the hair without unpleasant consequences, practical recommendations have been developed.

  • The procedure does not require pre-washing the head.
  • Juice leaves much less smell than pulp.
  • Hair absorbs stronger and exudes a spicy smell than the skin.
  • The longer the procedure, the more stable the flavor.
  • First wash the mask with clean water and shampoo.
  • Then rinse your head with acetic water.
  • Essential oils added to water neutralize onion odor, have a positive effect on the bulbs and skin.
  • Decoction of rosemary eliminates odor and makes hair shine. Mint infusion is also useful.

Effectively lemon-protein mixture: citrus juice mixed with egg white, put on hair and skin, distribute the comb and leave for a few minutes. Wash off with water.

How often do?

Hair bow masks should be applied regularly for a month and a half to two months. Perseverance is rewarded with a lasting result. How often to do depends on the specific situation and characteristics of the hair. But there are general recommendations.

For example, at the beginning of baldness, the procedure should be performed daily for 2 weeks in a row. Onion masks from the juice do every other day, for unwashed hair. More often - if no discomfort occurs. For the prevention of hair loss is 2 times a week for two months in a row.

  • Recommendations on how much time to devote to the procedure are as follows: like other burning substances (pepper, mustard, garlic), onions are safer to under-hold than to re-hold. Optimally - from 30 minutes to an hour, in the presence of softening components. If the skin is sensitive, and the strands are dry - 15 minutes, maximum - half an hour.

It is desirable to reduce the first procedure, and to start testing on the delicate area of the skin. It is unallowable to keep the mixture hot all night. It needs to be enriched with various ingredients - softening, nourishing, complicating. In general, a full course of up to 15 procedures, with 2-3-day breaks.

Speaking of the smell, which inevitably accompanies onion procedures, let's say that it lasts longer on the hair with a damaged structure, thinned by chemistry or frequent staining. If the onion is rubbed only into the skin, then the smell will be less.
