If you’re looking to grow your red hair, add some shine or just make it healthier overall, a great method is an oil hair mask. Natural oils work wonders for things like red hair growth, shine, frizz, and overall hair health.
How to apply an oil mask to your red hair
Brush out any knots in your red hair and separate it into two sections if needed. Then, add a few drops of oil to your palms and work it thoroughly into your red hair. If you suffer from a more oily scalp, apply the oil from about your ears down, working it into the ends well. If your scalp is dry to normal, work the oil into your scalp.
Your hair should be lightly coated in oil, but not drenched. A few drops of oil go a long way. Twist your hair up into a bun and secure it. Let sit for anywhere from 1 hour to 24 hours before washing out with shampoo. You may need to wash several times to remove all the oils. Follow with conditioner.
You can add essential oils if you wish to fragrance it, or add some oil to your leave-in products if you do not wish to apply the oil straight to the hair. Repeat these steps every 2 weeks or as needed.
