Today, masks are relevant more than ever. But here in HairMNL, we’re talking about a different type of mask – hair masks. Damaged hair, whether as a result from chemical treatments or habits, can feel and look different, depending on the type of damage. Luckily, you can treat damaged right at your very own home with a hair mask. Find out which hair masks you can give your hair and which one to use depending on your hair concern.
WHAT’S A HAIR MASK?
A hair mask is a deep conditioning treatment that repairs your hair from the inside out. Unlike your conditioner, its thicker consistency is enriched with more nutrients that intensely nourishes and hydrates your tresses. Plus, it goes deeper than a conditioner. Normally, your conditioner works on the surface of your hair cuticle, giving your strands instant smoothness and shine after usage. But if you’re looking to repair your hair from the inside, then a weekly hair mask is the way to go.

Hair masks have their own set of benefits it can give to your hair. It leaves your hair:
- Smooth and shiny.
- Strong and repaired.
- Intensely hydrated and nourished
