All about the hair mask

What is it and what is it good for?

Anyone dedicated to hair care has heard of a hair mask – also called “deep conditioning”. After all, it is one of the simplest ways to revitalize hair through hydration and nutrition! If you don’t know or just want to know more about hair treatment masks, today we will give you a lot of information about them[1]Everything You Need to Know About Using a Hair Mask. (n.d.).

We can say that hair masks are like “super-conditioners”. Like normal conditioners, they are emollient creams (great for combing). The difference is that the components are in greater quantities and much more concentrated! 

Besides, masks should be applied after cleansing and conditioning your hair, and for a longer time, ranging from 5 minutes to several hours, for example. The amount of time it stays on your hair and if you should apply it only on the length and ens, depends on the state of your hair and the treatment needed.


The coolest thing about hair masks is that they can be both industrialized and homemade! So, if you want to try a DIY, know that there are several recipes with different main ingredients: coconut oil, egg white, banana and honey, avocado, olive oil, etc. In this post here, in which we talk about natural treatments, you can have an inspiration to make a homemade mask!

We have already mentioned that the hair mask helps to hydrate and nourish the hair strands. However, depending on the main component of the mask, the benefits can be varied! Among the incredible reasons for you to use the masks are:

  1. Hair loss reduction: the nutrients contained in the mask leave the hair healthier and, consequently, stronger!
  1. Less frizz: due to hydration, the cuticles of the hair strands will be more “behaved”!
  1. More shine and smoothness: it makes a lot of sense that by applying nutrients and other vitamins to the hair, it’s going to be in better health, right?
  1. Hydration to the scalp: it may seem strange, but the masks benefit not only the hair but also the scalp! This is important, because, after all, it is there that the blood vessels responsible for hair growth are. And, in addition to that, when the scalp gets dry, dandruff can appear!
