Each person’s hair has specific needs that need to be cared for with products that improve the appearance, but also strength and structure. Together let’s discover the superpowers of hair masks
Masks are like an elixir for our hair which day after day is exposed to hair dryers, straighteners, chemical treatments such as dyes and bleaches, UV rays, the summer heat and the cold and humidity and the winter. Today let’s see what a hair mask is and why it is important to use it and how to apply it.
Follows these steps:
Keep in mind that the leave-in time is crucial for the efficacy of hair treatments. Ten minutes is the average, but it could also be longer or less: always read the directions for use on the box or on the Davines site. Or find out here below which mask is best for you, based on how much time you have!
If you have plenty of time, you can dabble with every type of mask. Indeed we recommend taking a full spa day - for yourself or with someone else - to take care of your personal well-being. Click below and discover how to organise a SPA day at home.
On the other hand, if you only have time for a regular shower, choose a quick application mask such as The Quick Fix: it is suitable for all hair types and most importantly, in just five minutes you will achieve an incredible effect! Try it to believe it.
If you are always on the run, try The Restless Circle invisible mask! Once applied it turns transparent and no one will notice. That way you can leave the mask on while you are doing yoga, watching a movie or working at the computer. Then go have a shower!
Putting too much on will not boost the results, it will only make it harder to rinse out. Put the right amount of mask on based on:
Normally the mask is applied to the lengths and the ends. But there are also specific products for the scalp such as The Purity Circle, a black mask formulated for people with very oily hair, or for people who live in very polluted areas and wish to regenerate their scalp.
Applying a mask to roots and lengths is not very common. Use the specific mask locally, only where needed, to prolong the duration of the product.
Excellent question! Generally speaking twice a month, but the correct frequency depends on the needs of your hair, the number of times you wash it and the products you use. The packaging of Davines masks - or the product data sheet on the website -provides the directions for use: to start off you can follow those.
But to be sure you are following the right hair routine as effectively as possible, give yourself time to experiment and “listen” to your hair: when it starts to feel brittle or in need of care, immediately apply the treatment and mark the date on the calendar. Then, keep track of how things evolve to understand how long the effect of the mask lasts on your hair. It could be a week, or even longer.
If you still have doubts, your Davines hairdresser can help you understand how frequently you should apply the mask. The next time you go to the salon, do not hesitate to ask for advice.
