Luxurious locks. Bright, shining tresses. Your hair is one of the first things people notice about you, whether you tend to let it hang loose or tie in back into a pony tail. After all, it’s sitting right there by your well-cared-for face! Doesn’t hair deserve just as much care as your complexion? Yes, so let’s try a mask!
Like your skin, your hair faces an arsenal of attackers: sun, heat, snow, cold all take their toll. Add heated hair dryers and curlers, and hair starts to scream for mercy!
Most of us have benefitted from facial masks. It’s time to treat your tresses, too! A weekly mask does wonders for hair, helping to keep it soft, shiny and manageable. Choosing the perfect mask for your hair depends on its type and the amount of damage it has endured:
To preserve color and keep hair looking its best, use a deep moisturizing mask. Phyto Phytocitrus Color Protect Radiance Mask is enriched with shea butter to deeply nourish and regenerate hair and helps restore hydration.
Frizzy or dry hair
If your hair suffers from the frizzies, Barex NutriRich Mask can help. This intensive treatment is formulated with pure Brazil Nut Protein and Macadamia Seed Oil to fortify hair, improve smoothness and prevent breakage.
Is your hair fine and limp? Moroccanoil Weightless Intense Hydrating Mask improves hair’s elasticity, texture, manageability and shine without weighing it down. Hair will be noticeably softer and more luminous.
Thick curly hair needs a deeply penetrating mask. Phyto PhytoSpecific Curl Hydration Mask delivers nourishment and hydration deep into hair fibers to increase elasticity and help with detangling.
Your skin isn’t the only thing prone to sun damage; your hair is also affected by sun’s harmful rays. Rene Furterer Solaire Intense Nourishing Repairing Mask saturates hair in healing and hydrating ingredients to revive sun-damaged hair from within.
Klorane Mask with Papyrus Milk saturates hair with pure papyrus extract to smooth away frizz strand by strand and protect hair from heat styling and environmental conditions that cause static.
A few tips on using hair masks:
- Read the Directions. All hair masks are not alike. Some require a few minutes, some require 30 minutes or more to work. Some are applied to dry hair, others to wet hair.
- Use only the amount of product specified in the instructions. Too much product may cause greasy or limp hair. Too little product and your hair won’t receive all the benefits it should.
- Give extra attention to the ends of your hair. The ends of your hair are the most brittle. Using a hair mask weekly will help lock in moisture to prevent breakage and split ends.
- Use a wide toothed comb. This ensures the treatment is distributed throughout each strand.
- Shampoo and condition hair after your mask to ensure that all of the product is removed and to leave hair silky, shiny and smooth.
