Benefits of an overnight hair mask
Using an overnight hair mask can have many benefits for your hair.
Strengthening: Giving your hair time to “rest and recover” is something that you can easily accomplish overnight.
Repair: Part of the reason that hair is broken down is that we’re so rough on it during the day. An overnight hair mask can condition it for hours on end to help it replenish overnight.
