What is a hair mask? How is it different from a hair conditioner?

Unlike a hair conditioner, a hair mask is a deep conditioning treatment. Ingredients are more concentrated in a hair mask. As the hair the mask is left on the hair for longer, the nutrients sink in and nurture the hair deeply giving significant benefits in a single-use. Hair masks are formulated to deeply nourish, hydrate, and make a big difference to the overall health of the hair.

Who needs hair masks?

Your hair is made up of three layers. When the outer layer is damaged, the inner layers are exposed, resulting in dryness and frizz. Sun exposure, heat styling, coloring, pollution and humidity damage the outer layer. A good hair mask gives your hair some extra protection. Everyone should use a hair mask that is designed as per their hair type and concern. Even those with an oily and greasy scalp and/or hair need a hair mask! It is best to use a hair mask before the signs of damage start showing.
