Hey beauties, let’s talk about hair masks. A hair mask is a powerful treatment that deeply nourishes and strengthens the hair. There are many ways hair can lose moisture. Moisture loss comes from heat damage, straighteners, curling irons, or harsh chemicals which can cause severe damage. Taking the extra time to incorporate a hair mask into your hair care routine can minimize breakage and improve the health of your scalp.

While conditioner makes the hair strands soft and manageable, a hair mask goes deeper than a conditioner. It penetrates the hair shaft deeply, provides it with moisture, and nourishes the hair.

Although a hair mask is mostly beneficial for dry and damaged hair, even if you feel like your hair is healthy, a lot can change during the year. Changing the seasons can be very harsh to your strands. Some benefits of hair masks include:

  • Improves the health of your scalp
  • Strengthens hair
  • Deeply hydrates the strands of hair
  • Leaves hair soft and shiny
  • Minimizes hair breakage and damage

How to use a hair mask?

Adding a hair mask to your hair care routine is simple. Depending on how damaged your hair is or your hair type, using a hair mask once a week should be sufficient.

  • Shampoo your hair in sections (4) or more
  • Condition your hair (if your hair is feeling extra dry)
  • Rinse thoroughly
  • Apply your hair mask to each section of damp hair
  • Leave-in for 8 to 10 minutes or longer depending on how dehydrated your hair is
  • Rinse thoroughly
  • Apply your leave-in conditioner
  • Style however you like

  1. I’m very excited about the benefits the Bentonite Clay hair mask has to offer. It was interesting to learn that it can detox the scalp. Regular shampooing and conditioning does not seem quite enough for long term moisture retention. I look forward to strengthening my 4C hair with the hair mask. Thank you!
