Hair Masks 101
Here at Beauty Plus Salon, we care about your hair. And we know a lot about it, too! For example, ask yourself this. Are you regularly using hair masks? The answer is probably no, but it should be yes. The majority of people who have potential to benefit from hair masks aren't using them for one reason or another- a lot of people blame their lack of masking due to time. They think it'll take up too much time or add lots of time to their normal routine, when in reality some hair masks require as little as a five minute waiting period to let the product do it's thing. To refresh your memory on hair masks in general, check out our previous article 'Wait, Why Aren't You Using A Hair Mask?'. In that particular post we dive into the importance of hair masks for protecting and strengthening your hair, and debunk the fact that one mask will ruin your whole routine.
Here are some go-to hair masks for you to try out depending on your hair type:
Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus (Dry/Damaged): This mask acts like a conditioner, and works to strengthen and help repair damage done to your hair. It will bring dry, damaged hair back to life and leave it feeling silky and smooth but most importantly, healthy.
It's A 10 Miracle Hair Mask (Dry/Damaged): This easy to use mask focuses on repairing damaged hair due to wear from coloring, heat styling and processing in general. This mask also acts as a conditioner as it is flexible enough to be used daily, but strong enough to be used periodically as a deep conditioning treatment.
Ouidad Melt-Down (Curly): The Curl Recovery Melt-Down Extreme Repair Mask is a luxurious treatment (curly girls, rejoice!) infused with a unique CR-4 Repair Complex. The formula includes a myriad of nutrients which have a main focus on rebuilding, nourishing and protecting your curls.
Wella Age Restore (Aged/Coarse): This is a restorative mask which works to make coarse hair feel smooth, silky and ultimately more manageable. It's packed with antioxidants to protect, strengthen and make your hair come back to life. Hair will not only appear younger, but smoother with a renewed softness.
Keratin Complex Blondeshell (Blondes): This mask is deep conditioning and botanical-rich that blends shea butter with keratin to help restore the hair's softness and strength.
