The table will give you a quick view of the properties that a hair mask should have for a particular type of hair.

Hair Type

Hair Mask properties

Dry and damaged hair

hair mask rich in nourishing and has restorative agents like oils, butter, and antioxidants are good for dry & damaged hair. It will keep the hair hydrated while protecting against harmful external influences.

Dyed hair

Such hair type needs a hair mask that contains active ingredients to promote consistency and colour retention. Also, it should provide extra hydration to keep the coloured hair soft.

Thin and brittle hair

The hair mask must have nourishing and moisturising properties. Moreover, it should strengthen the hair and reduce frizz. 

Thick hair

Frizz is the prime character of thick hair. So, these need a hair mask that provides hydration to the deepest layers of the hair. It should be capable of turning thick and rebellious hair into soft and malleable hair.

Wavy and curly hair

Such hair needs a hair mask that softens and define curls while preventing frizz. In addition, it should add volume and vitality to the hair for shaped curls.

Oily hair

Oily hair needs a hair mask that moisturises the hair without making them greasy. It must regulate excess sebum from the scalp to achieve clean and shiny hair.

Straight hair

The hair mask must be enriched with smoothing, hydrating and anti-frizz ingredients.

1.2 Ingredients

Hair masks are so effective than other hair care products. But how? The secret lies in their composition. It has non-greasy moisturising ingredients, vegetable proteins and other such ingredients required to strengthen the hair. However, the prime components are intensively moisturising, and the most common of them have been listed in the table below.

Ingredients

Properties

Argan Oil

It is rich in minerals, vitamins and beneficial fatty acids. It moisturises the hair deeply while providing sheen and softness.

Avocado Oil

It is a moisturising and greasy ingredient and a great source of beneficial fatty acids such as linoleic and oleic acids. Not to mention how enriched it is in essential vitamins and minerals.

Coconut Oil

It is one of the most powerful moisturising agents. It is a supplement of unsaturated fatty acids and lauric acid, which helps in increasing the content of vitamins, fats and minerals in your hair. It goes into the deepest layers of your hair to nourish it.

Coconut Water

A little less moisturising than coconut oil, coconut water is known for its highly effective components, including minerals such as magnesium and potassium, amino acids, vitamin C and omega 3. These give the water antioxidant, restorative and nutritional properties.

Green Tea

It is a powerhouse of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, due to which it has restorative power. The presence of amino acids, folic acid and vitamin B is enough to nourish your hair.

Honey

Honey has a high content of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It helps in repairing even the most damaged hair. Its antimicrobial properties provide protection.

Shea Butter

Shea butter is also a great moisturising and greasy agent. It is rich in vitamin A and E besides essential fatty acids, which keeps your hair hydrated by providing moisture and also bring shine to the hair. It even has the properties to soften dry, brittle hair and repair the split ends.

This was all about an ingredient that gives to the hair.

Let’s also know about the elements that take away from your hair, its sheen and strength.

Ingredients

Properties

Paraben

Paraben is used as a preservative in hair care products. It is a chemical that can dry out the hair and cause unwanted reactions on the scalp. Avoid buying a hair mask that contains methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben.

Silicone

Silicones are a debatable ingredient as it forms an unwanted layer around each individual hair which makes your hair easy to comb and smooth. In case you use a hair mask with silicone in it, ensure that you use a shampoo with sulphate (a strong substance that removes the grease from your hair) to get rid of it as silicones that are not water-soluble.

Sulphate is extremely harmful to dry and sensitive hair. To ensure that no silicone layer builds up around the hair strand, it is best to get those hair products with water-soluble silicone.

Avoid silicones like dimethicone, cetearyl, dimethiconol, cyclopentasiloxane methicone, cetyl dimethicone, trisiloxane, and trimethylsilylamodimethicone.

Phthalates

It is a harmful chemical that is mainly used in plastic products to soften them. It is easily absorbed by the body. So, avoid the hair masks that has phthalates like DBP (dibutyl phthalate), DINP (diisononyl phthalate), DEP (diethyl phthalate), DEHP (di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate), DMP (dimethyl phthalate), GDP (benzyl butyl phthalate), DNOP (di-n-octyl phthalate), and DIDP (diisodecyl phthalate).

Petroleum and Mineral Oil

These are the by-products of gasoline. Same as silicone, it also forms a layer around your hair strand, which, unlike silicone, is very difficult to get out of your hair using any kind of shampoo. It encapsulates your hair and makes them heavier while losing a lot of volumes.

1.3 Format

The format means the form of the hair mask such as cream, powder, liquid, cap, etc. Follow the table to have a detailed yet quick look at the different formats in which hair masks are available in the market.

1.4 Composition

The composition of a mask is essential to consider because of two reasons. First, it will determine the masks' properties and function. In other words, you will choose a product as per its desired effects and your hair type. Let’s say that for better hydration, you will buy a hair mask that is rich in oils and have nutritious butter. Second, the ingredients of the mask can influence the development of any unwanted reactions. Therefore, check that your desire mask is free from any harmful components. People with specific allergies or dermatological conditions must not ignore this.

1.5 Desired Results

While choosing a hair mask, a lot depends on the results you want to achieve with the product. So, for example, if you want a hair mask to repair your dry, damaged and lifeless hair, choose repair masks that are antioxidants rich. If you wish to enhance your dyed hair colour, have a soft and natural texture, choose moisturising masks with protective components.

1.6 Brand and Budget

A lot of variety is available in hair masks, and there is quite a competition between manufacturers. The brands which have made their name in the cosmetic market do influence the final price tag. Hair masks from L'Oréal and Garnier will not come at a low price. Therefore calculate your budget before buying a hair mask.

Online reviews, ratings coming from the buyer’s experience also helps a lot. The user experience usually provides some extra information about the pros and cons of a particular hair mask which might clear all your doubts.

3. FAQ: Learn more about the details

3.1 What is a hair mask?

The hair mask is a cosmetic product made to take care of your hair. One of its prime characteristics is that it has a great ability to moisturise and protect the hair. Unlike other hair care products, the hair masks act on the cortex of the hair, i.e. the inner part of it, due to which it offers complete care of the hair.

Besides being a rich source of high-quality moisturising agents, it stays in the hair longer than shampoos and conditioners and penetrates deeper. With such properties, it is bound to give promising results.

3.2 What is the benefit of applying a hair mask?

A hair mask offers plenty of benefits in terms of the health of our hair and aesthetics. Our hair is exposed to various harmful external factors daily, such as UV rays, pollution. A hair mask has restorative, moisturising and regenerative properties that help to repair any hair damage. It gives the required nourishment, extra sheen and strength to the lifeless hair. Besides restoring, the masks also protect your hair. And since the hair masks work on the inner part, well-groomed and healthy hair on the inside will certainly be visible on the outside.

3.3 What is the difference between a hair mask and a conditioner?

Hair masks are often confused with conditioner due to their properties. Both are hair treatments, but they are not the same. In fact, they not only have different properties, but the method of use and frequency of use also varies.

The hair conditioners provide hydration and nourishment to the hair while also compensating for the lack of sebum. Therefore, they give shinier and smooth hair. In contrast, a hair mask reconstructs the hair’s external layers giving intensive and complete hair treatment.

Usually, a hair mask is applied before the shampoo, and a conditioner is applied after shampooing. In addition to this, the hair mask takes some time to act, while the conditioner acts immediately. Furthermore, unlike the mask, the conditioner can be used daily.

The table will give you a quick view of the similarities and differences between the hair mask and conditioner.

Hair masks are often confused with conditioner due to their properties. Both are hair treatments, but they are not the same. In fact, they not only have different properties, but the method of use and frequency of use also varies.

The hair conditioners provide hydration and nourishment to the hair while also compensating for the lack of sebum. Therefore, they give shinier and smooth hair. In contrast, a hair mask reconstructs the hair’s external layers giving intensive and complete hair treatment.

Usually, a hair mask is applied before the shampoo, and a conditioner is applied after shampooing. In addition to this, the hair mask takes some time to act, while the conditioner acts immediately. Furthermore, unlike the mask, the conditioner can be used daily.

The table will give you a quick view of the similarities and differences between the hair mask and conditioner.

3.8 How long should I have a hair mask on?

Usually, it is suggested to keep a hair mask on for around 10 minutes. However, this time can be longer depending on the treatment, hair type, and hair mask.

If your hair mask is a bond restorer like Olaplex, leave it for a minimum of 10 minutes. Leaving it on for 30 minutes or even longer would also not harm.

3.14 Why should I use a conditioner after a hair mask?

A hair mask should be applied to clean hair. That’s the reason that maximum masks are suggested to use after shampoo. Shampoo opens up the hair cuticles, which helps in better moisture absorption of the mask and support the bonds to be rebuilt. Applying conditioner after that seals in the goodness at the cuticle.
