What Is A Hair Mask & Does Your Hair Need One?

What is a hair mask?

A hair mask is an intense, hydrating, and nourishing treatment for your hair. It works from within to strengthen and repair dry, damaged, or frizzy hair.

What is the difference between a hair mask and a conditioner?

Conditioners have been designed to smooth, soften, detangle, and condition your hair making it easier to manage daily. While a hair mask goes one step further and deeply penetrates the hair cortex, repairing damage from the inside out. Hair masks are normally thicker in texture and focus on long term results.

Do I need a hair mask?

If you have dry, damaged, frizzy, or coloured hair, a hair mask should certainly be including in your hair care routine as your hair tends to be more fragile and lacks much needed moisture. If your hair is not cared for properly, it could become brittle and prone to hair breakage.

Also, if you suffer from a dry scalp, hair masks can help improve and provide much needed hydration to your dry, itchy scalp and aid in hair growth.

How often should I be using a hair mask?

Generally, a hair mask is used once or twice a week depending on your hair type. If your hair is severely damaged, try by applying a hair mask twice a week and then gradually decreasing it to once a week once you are happy with the results.

How do I apply a hair mask?

To apply a hair mask, first shampoo your hair to remove excess dirt, oil and product build up. It will also open the hair cuticle to allow the hair mask to fully penetrate the hair from within.

Once you have washed out the shampoo, squeeze out any excess water and pat dry with a towel. Next apply the hair mask all over the hair. Focusing on the mid to ends of the hair. You can comb the mask through the hair as well to ensure the product is evenly distributed throughout the hair. Then leave it on for 10 mins, or for a deeper treatment, wrap your hair in a warm towel and leave on for 20 mins. Rinse out and style as required.
