Need a hair mask? This quick Q&A tells you everything you need to know

Use a hair mask to give your hair the extra TLC it needs for winter.

With winter in the air, it’s not only time to change up your wardrobe, but also your haircare routine to keep your hair looking and feeling its best right through the cold season.

Step one: Undo summer damage and prepare your hair for the harsh winter months with a hair mask. Not sure where to start? Check out these five frequently asked hair-mask questions from L’Oréal Paris to get you going: 

  1. How do I know if I need a hair mask? Almost everyone’s hair can benefit from a bit of extra love regularly. If your strands are looking a little limp or those split ends are bothering you, it might be time to try a hair mask on top of your regular hair care routine.
  2. How often should you use a hair mask? Depending on your hair type and concerns, you can use a hair mask as often as every wash day or once to twice a week. Follow your mask’s label recommendations or ask a trusted stylist for guidance.
  3. Do you use a hair mask before or after shampooing? Masks should always be applied to wet hair after shampooing. Washing your hair beforehand helps remove impurities and build-up that prevent the mask from absorbing correctly into your strands.
  4. Is it better to put a hair mask on dry or wet hair? Hair masks should be applied to towel-dried hair, not sopping wet. This allows the nutrients to penetrate the strands effectively.
  5. Do you wash your hair after a hair mask? Unless the instructions indicate the formula is a leave-in, you should always rinse off a mask afterwards.
