Treat yourself to weekly hair masks to protect and nourish your hair, proving masks aren’t just for Halloween!

Some Top Tips for masking this Halloween.
Apply your masque to dry hair, and let it absorb for about 20 minutes.
Why not do it while applying a weekly face masque treatment – we like Masque Mondays!
Not just for your face, a sleep masque does wonders for your hair too!
If you think your hair is especially dry, try sleeping in a hair masque. Simply apply to dry hair, cover with a cap and wash out in the morning..
The ends of our hair are the parts that are most commonly damaged.
To reduce the appearance of split ends and to help prevent future split ends, apply enough product to cover your hair ends.
Extra heat helps your hair and scalp absorb the oils and nutrients. After applying the masque, cover your head with a shower cap, and wrap a pre-warmed towel (hello tumble-dryer!) on top of the shower cap.
AND REMEMBER – LESS IS MORE
More masque does not equal better results. Only lightly coat your hair to avoid heavy, oily residue on your hair, and always shampoo and condition your hair afterwards to prevent product build up.
