A Foolproof Guide to Hair Masks

Hair masks play a key role in a healthy hair routine. But it can be overwhelming trying to find the right one for you. The market is, saturated with hair masks that claim to resolve all different types of hair issues. So, when it comes to buying a mask you need to be sure that it is suitable for your hair. For example, chemically, dyed, blonde hair will need a highly nourishing mask to prevent breakages. However, not every hair type will suit a mask with such a heavy consistency.

Therefore we have compiled a foolproof guide to hair masks, including the best mask for each hair type.

Coloured Hair

Our After Colour Care Mask is perfect for freshly coloured or treated hair. The formula is highly effective and is stronger than our After Colour Care Conditioner. We would recommend applying this hair mask once a week, from the roots to the ends of your hair. Use after shampooing but be sure to gently towel dry your hair first.

  • Coloured hair needs a concentrated level of repair.
  • Developed with linseed oil and beta carotene.
  • Linseed oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which help to hydrate the scalp and hair, promoting healthy hair growth.
  • Linseed oil has anti-inflammatory properties which are great for problems caused by eczema and psoriasis
  • Beta Carotene makes vitamin A which is essential for cell growth including, hair cells. It prevents dandruff as it helps the body to make sebum which is important for a healthy scalp.
  • The mask is ideal for detangling and balancing hair.

Curly Hair

Our Curly Shine Curly and Wavy Hair Mask is ideal for curls that need a burst of hydration. Curly hair is prone to frizziness due to the spiral shape of the strands. Meaning that the natural oils from our scalp that hydrate our locks can’t make it all way to the bottom of our hair. Use on lengths and tips after shampooing then comb through the hair. The hair mask should be left on for 5 minutes and then rinsed out.

  • Developed with curly hair in mind, the formula carries out a weightless detangling action.
  • Enriched with silk proteins which are great for hair elasticity and shine.
  • Forms a crystalline protective barrier on hair strands.
  • Leaves hair feeling soft and hydrated.

Apply after shampooing to towel-dried hair, distributing evenly from the hair roots to the ends. Rinse off after 5 minutes.

  • Whey proteins nourish and detangle the hair leaving it super soft and easy to comb.

  1. I have shoulder length hair, but the area I need to use the no orange mask is near my scalp. Can I use it there?

    1. Hi Carola,

      Thank you for your interest in our No Orange Mask! If the tones you want to neutralise are near your scalp we would recommend using our No Orange Shampoo instead 🙂

      Many thanks,
