We’re sure you’ve probably heard of (or tried!) a face mask, but what about a hair masque? Just as a face mask nourishes your skin, a hair masque works to hydrate and nourish your hair - giving it a much needed boost if it’s experiencing some damage or dehydration.
Whether you regularly colour or bleach your hair, are always blow drying or straightening, or just haven’t been taking care of your locks like you should, it’s hard to constantly maintain that healthy hair we all dream about. This is where a hair masque comes in.
Hair masques - like our Quench Your Thirst - can help revive damaged, dehydrated or tired locks. The ingredients in hair masques are usually more concentrated, meaning when they are left on your hair, they deliver a powerful punch of nutrients and hydration.
1. It will encourage your hair to grow.
Ever felt like your hair has just given up? Each of us has a point our hair will reach when it will no longer continue to grow. This will be a different length for everyone, but caring for your hair can help to encourage a couple of extra inches of growth.
The healthier your hair is, the more it will be able to endure and the more damage can be prevented. Using a hair masque weekly will promote healthy tresses and encourage growth.
2. It will help lose the damage, but not the colour.
Whether you are using natural shades to cover your greying roots (ageing, am I right?), or bold colours for a dramatic change, hair dyes, especially DIY box colours, can fade very quickly. A carefully chosen conditioning masque, packed with natural oils (did someone say Quench Your Thirst?), should be used weekly to hydrate and repair your hair and help lock in that beautiful colour of yours. That dye-job took time and money, make sure it lasts!
3. It protects bleached hair.
Unfortunately, when it comes to bleaching, your hair will always experience some level of damage. Going lighter not only pulls the pigment from your hair, but the moisture as well. This means your hair can often feel like it’s in need of a little TLC after bleaching, especially if you do it regularly. An ultra-hydrating masque can be just what you need to inject some much-needed moisture and life into your tresses. Focus the product on your mid-lengths to ends, tie your strands back and relax for up to 20 minutes, letting your soak up all the goodness.
4. It’s the perfect excuse for a pamper sesh.
The ideal time to leave your masque on is for 10-20 minutes (however, Quench Your Thirst is designed for even those who are pressed for time!), so why not make the most of it? This is the perfect reason to indulge in a little pamper sesh, while also keeping your hair healthy and full of life. All you need now is some chocolate and a glass of wine!
5. It makes styling so much easier.
Ever wish you could say ‘goodbye’ to tangles and frizz and ‘hello’ to healthy, happy strands? Our Quench Your Thirst masque is here to make all your styling dreams come true! Hydrated strands are often silkier and smoother, meaning they will be much easier to style. This means less time spent detangling and more time on the things that matter.
The bottom line is that healthy hair is happy hair. No matter what you do to your hair (styling, colouring, bleaching), the health of your tresses is what’s most important! After all, our motto is ‘protect and repair’. Show those strands some love!
