How to use a hair mask in 5 easy steps

Get the most out of your hair mask by following these steps. 

Hair masks can do wonders and are an important part of your haircare routine, especially during the colder, dryer winter months.

Like with most things, it is important to know how to use your hair mask correctly in order to get the most out of it. Try this five-step hair mask guide to get you started: 

  1. Wash: Cleanse your hair with a shampoo suited to your hair type and concerns. Use a complementary shampoo from your mask’s product range for best results.
  2. Wring: After washing, wring out excess water by gently twisting your wet hair or blotting it with a cotton T-shirt or microfiber towel.
  3. Apply: Apply your mask downward from the mid-shaft to the ends, avoiding the roots. Start with a dime-size amount and adjust based on your hair’s texture and length. Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to ensure even distribution.
  4. Relax: Leave the mask on for 5 to 10 minutes or as the product label recommends. For a spa-like experience, wrap a warm towel around your head to help the mask sink in.
  5. Rinse: Rinse thoroughly with cool or lukewarm water. Hot water can dry out your hair, while cool water helps seal the hair cuticle, locking in shine and moisture.
