Hair masks are different than everyday conditioner. Their formulations are more intense and they often contain higher concentrations of ingredients designed to deeply nourish your locks. Which makes them a little bit like the superfoods of the hair world! 

Of course, your preferred hairstylist or hair colourist is the best beauty expert to give you a professional assessment and recommend the right product for your specific needs. But in the meantime, here are a few tips from Pure Salon in Montreal that will go a long way in helping you choose the hair mask that will give you the results you want. 

Nourish and Repair Deeply 

Hair masks have become a staple in many hair care regimes. They are the nourishing, hydrating, and replenishing treatment that provides intense conditioning to the hair. They’re also a quick and easy way to inject instant moisture into dry strands or to add a boost of shine and softness when your locks feel dull and lifeless. Particularly after a beach vacation. 

The type of mask you will choose depends on your hair type and hair goals. For example, if you have thin hair, a lighter formulation will be better, as masks can weigh down finer strands. Whereas if you have coarse or thick hair, a creamy, denser formulation will provide better nourishment. You have short hair? Aim for using about a tablespoon of product. For longer hair, go for two tablespoons.

When to Use? 

Masks can be used as a weekly treatment to protect against damage, or as a last-minute pre-party pick-me-up (can you say wedding?), returning hair to its best condition within minutes. The luxurious formulas are designed for deep conditioning and contain prime ingredients (like argan oil) that repair damage and strengthen the cuticle, which is the outermost layer of the hair shaft. This adds moisture and nutrients to your hair that help hydrate dry strands, increase shine, and prevent frizz.

The first step is to shampoo and condition your hair, as usual (for coloured hair, always use a shampoo formulated to expand the longevity of your hair colour). This mask for coloured hair is great to help preserve your beautiful colour. If you have long or thick hair, section your hair into two or three parts before applying a thick coating of the hair mask, from root to tip. Massage the product well into the strands, from the scalp, working your way down to the ends for maximum conditioning and shine.

Make sure all hair is evenly coated. Leave on for 15-20 minutes (or longer, if desired) before rinsing, until the water runs clear.

Then blow dry and style your hair as usual, and voila! Shiny, glossy hair ready for a summer party on the terrace or to go glam on the beach.
