Getting in the habit of using a masque is crucial to keep your hair strong and healthy. Our poor little hair strands go through so much on a daily basis. Whether we color our hair, add heat to our locks to create the perfect hairstyle or simply bear the change of seasons between the summer heat and the chilling winters, your hair needs extra protection to lock in its moisture.

What is a Hair Masque?

A hair masque is a deep conditioning treatment for your lovely locks.  Masques are used to add moisture to the hair. They prevent frizz and breakage, and make your hair soft and shiny, giving your hair the extra love it deserves.

How Often Should I Use a Hair Masque?

Hair masques should only be used once a week, unless they specify otherwise. These products are heavily concentrated and can give you build up if you use to0 much. You should also consider how heavy the hair masque is for your hair when choosing a regimen. Using the right amount at the right intervals will leave you with a luscious head of hair.
