What is a hair mask?

A hair mask is a type of hair treatment made to condition the hair intensely and nurture it back to optimal hair health. These hydrating hair repair masks are made with nourishing ingredients, such as natural oils and butters, that are highly concentrated and designed to do everything from restoring moisture to smooth frizziness, boosting elasticity and adding a natural shine.

There are hair treatment masks that suit all hair types, but they are particularly beneficial to dry hair, damaged hair, and colour-treated hair that has been stripped of moisture and nutrients during colouring and styling. Even if you have healthy hair, a deep conditioning hair mask applied once a week is a fantastic way to maintain your hair health and keep it vibrant and strong.

At Hairhouse, we offer a wide range of hair masks in Australia that you can apply at home. Discover our favourites by brands like Olaplex, NAK Hair, L'Oréal Professionnel, and Kevin Murphy, which are made to nourish, hydrate, repair, and protect your hair.

What are the benefits of hair masks?

Hair treatment masks are loaded with ingredients rich in vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants to moisturise hair at the deepest level and protect it from damage. By adding one to your weekly hair care routine, you can strengthen weak and damaged hair, moisturise dry hair, reduce frizz and define curls, manage oily hair, soften coarse hair, plump up fine hair, combat brassiness in blonde hair, soothe scalp irritation, and much more.

To use most hair masks, apply the deep conditioning hair mask to damp hair and leave it on for at least 20-30 minutes before washing it off in the shower. You can even leave your hair moisture mask overnight for a more intense conditioning treatment for very damaged or dry hair.

Some hydrating hair masks may be a leave-in treatment, such as the K18 Leave-In Mask, where you can apply, style, and go. Others, like Muk Deep Muk 1 Minute Ultra Soft Treatment, require you to leave it on for just one minute and rinse thoroughly before styling.

Use your hair mask with hair oils, scalp treatments, and other hair treatments to maintain full, lush, and healthy hair! Check out our range online now.

What are the ingredients to look for in a good hair mask?

The ingredients in a hair treatment mask are condensed in more concentrated amounts and left for longer periods of time to soak deep into the hair follicle and nourish it from the inside out. The most common ingredients included in masks are natural oils, butters, and humectants to moisturise and condition.

Coconut oil is a staple in many hair treatments as it is rich in medium-chain fatty acids and lauric acid to give your hair a hefty dose of vitamins, minerals, and good fats. Argan oil is another miracle worker used in hydrating hair masks with high levels of vitamin E to soften, hydrate, and protect hair.

Shea butter is loaded with fatty acids and has a velvety texture that conditions dry and brittle hair without greasiness.

Choose a hair treatment mask with aloe vera to soothe an irritated scalp, reduce dandruff, and remove product build-up from blocked hair follicles.

Hyaluronic acid is a humectant that is often used to lock in moisture and smooth frizz, while essential oils are popular in natural hair care products to add a fresh, botanical scent and offer their own unique healing benefits.
