5 Tips to Easy Hair-Masking

— September 02, 2020

Are you maximizing the usage of your Maui Moisture Heal & Hydrate Shea Butter Hair Mask? It's infused with macadamia nut oil, coconut oil and healing shea butter. Here are five great tips to masking.

TRY TO CONCENTRATE THE ENDS: Most people think they should be focusing on their roots when masking, but really you should be concentrating your mask on your ends. Make sure to smooth and scrunch.

STEAM WITH A STEAMER OR USE A HOT TOWEL: We always suggest incorporating a steamer when using botanically-infused ingredients because the steam helps the mask penetrate the hair shaft better. If you don’t have a steamer, you can use a hot towel. Also, using a steamer allows the botanical elements of your masque or deep conditioner to truly penetrate the hair shaft. If you can afford one, snag it!

TRY IT ON DRY HAIR: Your Maui Moisture Heal & Hydrate Shea Butter Hair Mask can be used on dry hair as well as wet hair, as oil-based masks actually work better when applied to dry hair. If you use it on dry hair, first, continue with your shampoo and condition directly after.

COMBINE WITH A FEW OILS: If you’re looking for an intense treatment, add a palmful of avocado oil to your masque for a protein boost.

MASSAGE FOR 15 MINUTES: Massage both your scalp and your hair for about fifteen minutes before letting the masque sit. This helps to stimulate your scalp for growth and soften your tresses.
