A hair mask and a hair conditionershould not be used during the same wash cycle, and we have some scientific points to prove it.
Lay back, relax, and let’s go over the Hair Mask details together!
What is the Difference Between a Conditioner and a Hair Mask?
A conditioner is essentially a "treatment" that you use on a regular basis, whenever you wash your hair.
Something like a hair mask is designed to be used on a less often cycle. Roughly once a week or once every two weeks, depending on the dryness of your hair.
Why Shouldn't I Use a Conditioner and a Hair Mask?
When you are washing your hair, you are opening up the hair cuticle. When applying a conditioner, you are resealing the cuticle, which will trap the moisture and nutrients from the conditioner.
If you were to apply a hair mask throughout already conditioned hair, it will virtually do nothing since the cuticle has already been sealed.
How Should I Use a Hair Mask?
You should wash your hair, and instead of using your regular conditioner, swap it out for the hair mask!
Distribute evenly throughout your hair, from the mid-lengths to the ends, to ensure even nourishment and hydration. If you are struggling to distribute the mask throughout your hair, you may find it more comfortable to apply in sections.
Leave the treatment in for the recommended time and rinse thoroughly!
