    Rules for beginners: what you need to know?

    Preparation of mustard mask
    1. The main condition for the safe use of mustard powder in hair masks is the absence of allergies! Before this tool is applied to the roots of hair, it is necessary to dilute a little dry mustard on the tip of the knife in warm water to a creamy condition and drip onto the inner bend of the elbow. If there is only a slight burning sensation, not accompanied by itching and redness, then you can not be afraid of an allergic reaction to mustard. You also need to do with a complex composition of mustard masks. When preparing the mixture, it is necessary to check it for hypoallergenicity in the same way. Only safe mixtures for skin and hair will give the expected effect!
    2. For cosmetic purposes it is allowed to use exclusively mustard powder, since in a familiar spicy appetite spice there are substances that adversely affect the health of keratin fibers: acetic acid, potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate.
    3. A ready-made mustard mask for hair professionals recommend applying only to contaminated( but not too greasy) strands that are already covered with a thin film of sebum. It will protect the hair from drying and destruction. In this case, the hair should be moist.
    4. When applying the mask with mustard powder, it must be carefully monitored to prevent it from getting on the mucous membranes of the eyes!
    5. The mustard is diluted with exceptionally warm, comfortable water, since toxic essential oil compounds are formed from the connection with boiling water, damaging the scalp and strands.
    6. Do not insist on using a mustard mask for a long time, as with prolonged cooking it reproduces more and more aggressive chemicals that can cause skin burns. The same effect is achieved when adding sugar to the mask, it must be filled strictly according to the prescription, as it intensifies the burning sensation.
    7. The mustard mixture is applied exclusively to the roots of the hair, it is not necessary to process the tips, they are already dry. According to the tips experienced, the ends of the hair must be lubricated with any base oil( olive, peach, burdock or other) to prevent them from drying out when in contact with the mustard mixture.
    8. It is also necessary to strictly observe the duration of the mask with mustard for hair. It can be increased due to the abundance of softening components in its composition or reduced because of the high concentration of aggressive substance. In order not to overdo the epidermis of the scalp and not to provoke the appearance of scaling and dandruff, cosmetologists recommend enriching the mustard mask with olive, burdock, castor, linseed, jojoba, almond or any base oil that moisturizes, softens the scalp and your strands. It must be remembered that burning should be easy, sensation tolerable, and in case of intensification of the negative reaction, immediately rinse the head with warm pleasant water.
    9. When flushing hair and mustard mixtures, use warm, comfortable water. Even not very strong burning of the mustard mask significantly increases the sensitivity of the skin, so hot or cold water will negatively affect the sensations and can harm the hair follicles.
    10. Upon completion of the procedure, washing off the remains of hair mask with mustard, you can use your favorite shampoo, and then apply a balm to the strands of hair to prevent the withered.
