There are numerous hair care techniques and products available in the market to remedy hair problems. But one needs to first know their hair type and understand the problems before opting for the solutions. However, a common hair problem that many people experience is dull and brittle hair. If you have the same issues and have tried numerous DIYs but have not been successful, it is time you begin with understanding your hair type and then consult an expert.

Confused about where to begin? Dermatologist and hair specialist Dr Niketa Sonavane recently shared an easy hair mask for type 2b hair, which is best described as wavy hair.

Frizziness is a common problem with people with type 2b hair. While their hair may be flat and straight at the roots, it becomes wavier at the bottom and forms a prominent and strong ‘S’ shape. While controlling frizz is the first major step along with untangling knots to make the hair manageable, it is time you also try hydrating hair masks that can provide much-needed care.
