Winter is the perfect time to indulge in some much-needed self-care, and what better place to start than with your hair?
As we progress further into the season, the cold, dry air can start to take a toll on our locks. If your hair lacks shine and elasticity, seems brittle, or feels a little rough to the touch, and is not cooperating when you style it, you're likely in need of some repair and hydration.
Most of us assume we get that with our conditioner, and we do, however sometimes the hair requires a little more. Our traditional conditioners provide what we call: "surface conditioning." They are designed to target the hair's outermost layer, the cuticle, and are excellent for everyday use!
Hair masks, however, go the extra mile. Hair masks penetrate the hair fiber's innermost structure, the cortex, and add hydration and repair where conditioners can not.
One reason for this is that most hair masks are designed with a considerably more potent concentration of nutrients, enabling them to repair the hair fiber on a structural level.
No matter what your unique hair needs are, there are plenty to choose from, and we could all certainly benefit from a hair mask!
We'd love to share a few of our favorites with you to determine which hair mask will serve as the best investment for your hair needs.
Fine or thinning hair ~ Masque Densité Hair Mask.
If you have fine or thinning hair, this mask is excellent for you. We know that our beautiful fine-haired clients typically steer clear of masks, thinking they're just too heavy. Unfortunately, when we are seeking lift and volume and not replenishing the hair with lost moisture, what tends to happen is the hair ends up very dried out since most volumizing products are focused on defying gravity rather than conditioning the hair fiber.
So, how do we repair and hydrate the hair without weighing it down?
Masque Densité Hair Mask is the perfect solution! This most impressive mask uses ultra-concentrated ingredients like Hyaluronic acid, Gluco Peptide, and Ceramides. Together, they enter the hair's deepest layer to help thicken, strengthen, and promote shine and elasticity while stimulating new hair growth. That's a win-win!
Treat yourself, and indulge with this reconstructive mask, rich in shea butter and argan oil, that deeply penetrates the cortex to replenish lost protein and further rebuilds the hair's internal structure. This mask is magic! Best of all, it works to restore elasticity and hydrate dry or damaged hair. Your hair will feel incredible! Warren Tricomi's Restorative Hair mask delivers instant gratification and will have your hair looking and feeling rejuvenated!
Is growing healthy, long, and luscious hair part of your winter agenda? Or are you one step ahead and already have beautiful long locks? This mask is for you. You'll find an exclusive ingredient list in this luxurious mask. Creatine, Ceramides, and Maleic Acid all work together to reinforce the hair fiber's internal structure, promote elasticity and moisture retention, and of course, help to seal the cuticle for incredible shine!
If healthy long locks are what you're seeking, Masque Extentioniste will surely assist you along the way to achieving such lovely, long hair.
Corse or Unruly hair ~ Shusu sleek hair mask.
This Anti-frizz, paraben-free, and silicone-free hair mask for coarse hair is one of our best sellers! Shusu Sleek Hair Mask intensely nourishes from mid-lengths to ends to help create smooth, silky hair.
Black cumin oil, packed with Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, and nigellone (a powerful botanical antioxidant), helps to tame and deeply hydrate naturally dry and frizzy hair. Like all of our products, it's safe on color-treated hair, ensuring your hair color will flourish without sacrificing the hair fiber's integrity!
Dry hair ~ Masque Magistral Hair Mask.
Magistral hair mask is best for dry to severely dry hair and is possibly our most-loved nourishing mask. This exquisite, hydrating mask will improve hair texture by creating a smooth topcoat enveloping each hair fiber. Ceramides, or proteins, help strengthen the hair by promoting elasticity and moisture retention to the hair fiber's innermost part, the cortex. Benzoin Resin, another fantastic ingredient, is known for its soothing and relieving qualities. This technology helps calm the scalp and form a protective layer on the hair fiber that locks in moisture and finishes with a glass-like shine.
Winter can be tough on hair, but with a little help from one of these brilliant Hair Masks, we can combat the cold, dry air and keep our hair shiny, hydrated, and healthy all year long!
