How to apply a l’oreal hair mask

Of all of our holy grail hair care products, hair masks may just be our favorite! Seemingly magical, it’s as if hair masks can transform your mane, whether you’re using one to boost your hair color or repair damaged locks.

While you may be familiar with this sworn-by hair product, there’s still a chance you’re not completely versed on how to use a hair mask properly. Don’t you want your hair to reap all the benefits? Well, no need to fret, because below we’re answering all of your hair mask questions, plus sharing a step-by-step tutorial on how to apply a hair mask—the right way. Read on!

WHAT IS A HAIR MASK?

Just as face masks work to nourish and hydrate your skin, hair masks do the same for your strands. Typically available in cream and clay-based formulas, this hair care product works to penetrate your mane with the right amount of TLC to improve the overall look and feel of your hair. Whether you’re working with color-treated hair, natural hair, or just looking to give your hair a boost, hair masks always rise to the occasion.

WHAT DOES A HAIR MASK DO FOR YOUR HAIR?

As we mentioned, hair masks come in different formulas that provide various benefits, just as there are different shampoos, conditioners, and hair treatments to help your specific hair concerns. When looking for your hair mask match, consider what your hair could use a little more of. Moisture? There’s a hair mask for that. Shine? There’s also a mask for that! If you need some product recs, consider one of the following hair masks, based on your mane’s needs.

If you have color-treated hair…try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm. The intensive post-color repair hair treatment smooths and protects your hair color.

DO YOU USE A HAIR MASK BEFORE OR AFTER SHAMPOOING?

As for whether you should use a hair mask before or after shampooing or if it’s better to apply one on wet or dry hair, it truly depends on the product you’re working with. Typically, most hair masks require you to shampoo your hair before application, but others can be used on dry hair. In some cases, you may be instructed to simply wet your hair before using this essential, rather than actually washing your mane. So, the key to getting the most out of your hair mask is to follow the instructions listed on the packaging.

HOW TO USE A HAIR MASK

Ready to learn how to apply a hair mask the right way? Here’s what to do!

STEP #1: WASH YOUR HAIR

As we mentioned above, you may need to shampoo your hair before applying your hair mask. If you’ve selected one of our options above, you’ll want to cleanse your hair first to get the ball rolling. Kick things off by washing hair with a shampoo that coordinates with your mask. For example, if you’re using the Repair Remedy Balm, you can reach for the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo. Apply it to wet hair, suds up into a thick lather, and rinse thoroughly.

Editor’s note: Most masks are meant to be used in place of conditioner, but some are meant to be used after conditioning. You’ll want to check the directions on yours to make sure!

STEP #2: APPLY YOUR HAIR MASK

It’s time for the main event: applying your hair mask! If you’ve opted for a hair mask highlighted above, massage the product through your damp strands.

STEP #3: LET IT SIT

Next up: Wait it out! Leave your mask in place for the recommended about of time. This is often between three to five minutes, giving you the perfect amount of time to shave your legs or wash your body. Keep in mind, some hair masks can be left on overnight in a similar fashion to a leave-in conditioner. Just follow the directions to achieve the desired results!

When it comes to how to apply a hair mask, getting the timing right is key. You don’t want to leave a hair mask on too briefly because it might not work to its full potential. You also don’t want to leave one on for too long. Yep, if you’ve ever asked, “Can you leave a hair mask on for too long?”, you absolutely can. Overdoing it can lead to hair that looks greasy and limp—no thanks.

STEP #4: RINSE IT OUT

Unless your hair mask packaging states otherwise, you’ll want to rinse out the formula with lukewarm water after the allotted amount of time, just as you would with conditioner. Allow your hair to dry, and repeat the process a few times a week to show your strands some extra love!

Regardless of what hair type you’re working with, hair masks are a great way to provide your mane with a dose of TLC. And once you’ve learned how to use a hair mask the right way, the results are enough to make this beauty staple a permanent fixture in your hair care routine. But how often should you use a hair mask? While it’s super appealing to load up on hair care products every time you wash your strands, too much of a good thing can have the opposite effect of what you’re going for. If you’re wondering how many hair masks are too many hair masks, we’re here to help. Keep reading as we give you the lowdown on the perfect masking frequency and offer a step-by-step tutorial to help refresh and rejuvenate your strands.

CAN YOU USE HAIR MASKS EVERY DAY?

If you’re obsessed with healthy, moisturized locks like us, you’re probably tempted to use a hair mask every day. But honestly, it’s not the best idea for your strands. While this beauty staple is jam-packed with benefits for your hair, using it too much can lead to greasy strands with lots of buildup. Not to mention, you may just end up wasting product. Think about it: Your hair can only hold so much hydration; once it reaches it’s maximum hydration levels, any product you apply on top of that isn’t actually hydrating your mane—it only weighs it down.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU USE A HAIR MASK?

By now, you already know that you shouldn’t use a hair mask every day. So, how often should you use a hair mask? Simply put, it’s best to use this beauty staple once or twice a week. As we mentioned above, if you apply a hair mask way more than you need, it can take a toll on your strands. In order to reap all the benefits of your hair mask, play it safe, and follow the instructions listed on the packaging.

HAIR MASKS VS. DEEP CONDITIONER

Many people believe that hair masks and deep conditioners are pretty much the same in terms of usage, but they both have key differences. While the benefits can be very similar, you can typically use deep conditioner more often than a hair mask. When your strands are extra dry or really in need of some love, you can swap your regular conditioner for a deep conditioner as you see fit. On the other hand, regardless of the state of your hair, you won’t want to up your mask usage to more than a few times a week.

The results we get from a clay face mask are unparalleled: Smoothing without drying and hydrating without leaving skin feeling oily. But the removal process for clay masks sometimes leaves something to be desired. On the other hand, one of the best parts of a sheet mask is that when you’re done you just toss the sheet in the trash can. While that may seem like the most appealing way to finish with a face mask, you don’t have to sacrifice function for ease or start weighing pros and cons to determine which types of face masks you should use. If you want to use a clay mask, just make sure you’re applying and removing it correctly. If you remove a clay mask the right way, you’ll go from covered in clay to completely clean in a pinch. Ready to streamline the best—not to mention the most relaxing—part of your entire skin care routine? Scroll down to find our best clay masks (including our best face mask for dry skin), and learn how to choose the one that’s right for you. Plus, find out how to apply and remove this go-to skin care product from your face. Once you see just how easy using a clay mask is, you’ll want to do it as much as possible. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

OUR BEST CLAY MASKS FOR EVERY SKIN CONCERN

Before we tell you how to apply and remove a clay mask, it’s important to pick the right one for your particular skin concerns. Whether you have dull, rough, stressed, uneven, or dry skin, here are five options to choose from:

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask: Over time, harsh environmental factors like pollution and debris can damage skin, leaving your complexion looking dull and tired. This clay mask formula enhanced with charcoal can help draw out the buildup of impurities, reduce the look of dull skin, and even out skin tone. Skin will look brighter immediately.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask: Day after day, dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion feeling rough. This clay mask formula is enhanced with red algae extract to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils. It also exfoliates dead skin cells, smooths the look of imperfections, and allows skin to breathe. Skin texture will appear refined immediately after use.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask: Enhanced with seaweed, this face mask also helps draw out buildup of impurities like dirt and oils while visibly reducing the appearance of imperfections, clearing congested pores, and gently cleansing skin. When you’re finished, your skin will not only be clean but also refreshed.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask: Day after day, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils build up on the skin, which can leave your complexion looking a little too oily. This clay mask formula is enhanced with eucalyptus leaf extract to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and reduce the look of excess shine. Skin will look less shiny immediately.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask: The clay mask formula with enhanced yuzu lemon extract helps shed rough, dead skin cells from skin’s surface, clarify tone, and improve skin texture. Rinse off to reveal a clean glow.

Editor’s tip: Can’t decide on just one of the below? Multi-mask! This beauty trend involves applying different face masks to different areas of your face at the same time. Ideal for anyone with combination skin, multi-masking is the perfect remedy when you’re oily in some areas and dry in others. After all, one face mask won’t tend to all your skin’s needs. The following directions for applying and removing clay masks can also be applied to multi-masking—you’ll just be removing a few different masks instead of only one!

HOW TO APPLY AND REMOVE CLAY MASKS

Once you have your clay mask of choice in hand and are ready to go, it’s time to apply. Follow these instructions to apply your mask and remove it with no mess. Your skin will be glowing in no time!

STEP #1: CLEANSE YOUR SKIN

Before putting on your clay mask, cleanse your complexion to help remove dirt, oils, and makeup from the surface of your skin. Try using the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser. Each of these cleansers lifts dirt and impurities out of your pores without drying out your skin. Starting with a clean base will help the clay masks reach their maximum level of effectiveness.

STEP #2: APPLY AN EVEN LAYER

When it comes to using a clay mask, you don’t need to slather your face in a ton of product. A thin, even layer of whichever mask you’re using will do. If you don’t mind getting a little dirty, use your (clean) hands to spread the mask over your face. If you’d rather keep things tidy, try using a mask brush or repurpose a foundation brush. By dipping the brush into the mask and painting it onto your face, you’ll not only avoid a mess but also be able to apply a perfectly thin layer of your mask of choice.

STEP #3: WAIT 10-15 MINUTES

Take this time to sit back and relax! Listen to your favorite playlist or podcast while you leave your clay mask on for 10-15 minutes. Other potential post-mask application activities could include watching TV, painting your nails, or even using a hair mask. After all, one mask is never enough. Let your hair join in on the fun with a hydrating hair mask that’s totally on-trend, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask.

STEP #4: RINSE

And you were just starting to get comfortable, right? By now the mask should feel firm on your skin—and that means it is time to take it off! Wet a washcloth with lukewarm water and gently wipe the clay mask off of your face in circular motions. Be sure to get all of the clay mask—that means double checking your hairline, eyebrows, and nostrils.

STEP #5: PAT DRY

Once you’ve made sure all of the clay mask has been removed, take a clean, dry towel and lightly blot your skin until it’s just slightly damp. You and your skin should feel rejuvenated and revived.

STEP #6: USE A LIGHTWEIGHT MOISTURIZER

Keep showing your skin love by applying a water-based moisturizer for your skin type. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, and L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. These moisturizers will complement all the work the clay mask did, leaving you with a hydrated, healthy complexion.

STEP #7: REPEAT THE PROCESS A FEW TIMES A WEEK

The best part about this whole process? You get to do it again! Our clay masks should be used 2-3 times a week for best results, so go ahead and treat yourself to using one again and again. Making a clay mask part of your consistent skin care routine will keep your pores clean and help address various skin care concerns, from large pores to dry spots. As long as you follow each of these steps for choosing the right mask, applying it, and removing it, you’ll see a noticeable change in no time with just a little bit of consistency.

Having trouble narrowing down which clay mask (or masks, plural, if you want to multi-mask) are right for your routine? We can help with that! Here’s How to Find the Right Clay Mask for Your Skin Type.

After a long summer of beach damaged hair , I found that my hair was drier that it has felt in a very long time. I had actually forgotten what it was like to have to work hard on detangling my hair . I’m also growing it out after almost 2 years of having a Lob , so I couldn’t go get my 6 month hair trim that usually helped with dry split ends. So it’s safe to say that my hair isn’t doing too well. My mom kept pleading that hair masks and overnight oil treatments were the way to go, but I was too busy and could barely fit in a face serum in my routine to be able to do anything else.

Testing out the L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Hair Mask was really interesting, because I rarely add things to my hair care routine. I usually keep things basic and simple. So it was fun to see how much of a difference I can feel with trying out a hair mask in 3 different ways. This multi-use hair mask is good for those not wanting constrictions when it comes to how they can incorporate it into their routine. It’s a nourishing oil mask so it’s meant for those with normal hair that tends to become dry. It has 6 precious oils, including Jojoba oil , which work on adding shine and nutrition. You can use it in 3 ways: Apply it for a couple of minutes or overnight before washing your hair, use it as a conditioner/mask after shampoo for around 3-5 minutes before rinsing and even as a leave in conditioner.

How to apply a l’oreal hair mask

Pre-Shampoo

Let me start off by saying, it smells amazing so I was very much enjoying having the scent so close to me. I applied the mask generously on all my hair including roots. I left it on for 30 minutes as I relaxed in the bath. While I was rinsing it off I instantly felt the smoothness, it’s that feeling like when you wash off a really good conditioner. After that I used shampoo and conditioner as I usually do. I wanted to keep everything else in my routine the same so I can really test out the difference. After I got out of the shower my hair felt a lot smoother than usual, it didn’t take time to detangle and didn’t need as much of my leave in conditioner that I regularly use.

The next day my hair felt really nice and soft. Even the hair at the back which is the most dry, damaged and has been driving me crazy, is calmer, easier to run my fingers through and noticeably a lot smoother. Also my hair still smelt great from the mask, which was surprising since I shampooed, conditioned and applied a small amount of oil and leave in conditioner, but it remained the scent that stayed the most.

After Shampoo

After it dried, I noticed the texture of my hair was incredibly soft. All summer, my hair has not been this soft, I ran my fingers through it so easily, I even got compliments at work that my hair looks really shiny. Even the hair at the base of my head that’s damaged and usually very dry was really soft. I went to the beach 2 days later and my hair after swimming was exceptionally soft and a lot more manageable than it was after my previous dips in the sea! I usually apply oil after I leave the water and brush it out and it takes forever to brush and still feels crusty, this time It felt really good which surprised me considering the effect of the mask should have worn off by now.

My second trial was using it in the shower after shampoo, almost as a hair conditioner, maybe leaving it on a little longer, so for about 3-5 min. As I waited, I washed my body, did a scrub , cleansed my face and washed it off after around 3 minutes. And well, it did its job, I instantly felt a difference as I was washing it off. My hair was silky smooth, too smooth to the point were I thought it hadn’t been washed off properly. I foresaw the good hair day even before I had put my hair towel on.

I immediately felt an immense difference when I took my hair out of the towel. After I put my leave in conditioner and tiny drop of oil, it brushed out so easily, a lot easier than it usually does. It felt really smooth, so much that I kept touching it just to see if the smoothness would evaporate somehow. My hair even looked better even when it was still wet! Hard to explain but true. It also felt smoother than when I tried the mask as a pre-shampoo treatment.

Leave-In

That night I showered, used shampoo and conditioner and used the L’Oreal Extraordinary Jojoba Oil Hair Mask as a leave in conditioner, which I think is the technique I’ll be going for the most. Right off the bat my hair looked really shiny, which I love. As I was brushing it through my hair, it instantly got detangled, I didn’t even need to use a brush, I mostly used it for styling. I didn’t feel the need to add oil because it gave me shine and softness.

There was wind that day as my hair was drying off, which would usually have me end up with ‘Monica Geller in the Barbados hair’. However, it relatively stayed put and the frizz was actually surprisingly under control. After it dried completely, I usually have a hard time running my fingers through my hair if I left it to dry naturally, but my hair felt soft, healthy and was easy to run my fingers through.

I slept with my hair untied and usually I wake up and it’s a mess, my hair was surprisingly calm, my waves actually remained uniform and intact. Also, the dry spot at the back of my hair that I struggle with was relatively a lot smoother than normal. I can definitely see the improvement as a result of using the mask 3 times so far, so I don’t think it’s leaving my bathroom cabinet anytime soon.

It sold out during the first lockdown but is now available to order again

How to apply a l’oreal hair mask

How to apply a l’oreal hair mask

Since lockdown 3.0 began, we’ve realised that we can do lots of things we never knew we were capable of; like recreating Wagamama’s katsu curry recipe from home or removing our own gel nails.

However, one thing we’re really hesitant to mess with is our hair colour.

We all remember the hair-dying fiascos of our youth and, if we’ve learnt anything from our hairdresser (and from the mistakes of the previous two lockdowns), it’s that colouring hair from home is a sure-fire way to end up with frazzled ends and an odd shade of muddy brown (why does it always go muddy brown?) that is impossible to hide from co-workers, even over Zoom.

How to apply a l’oreal hair mask

Having said that though, we don’t want to leave isolation with two-tone hair and grown-out highlights so we set out in search of a solution, and we found it — surprisingly — in the form of a £6 hair mask.

The L’Oreal Elvive Colour Protect Anti-Brassiness Purple Mask sold out during the first lockdown and became a firm favourite of beauty editors, however it is still available for delivery from Boots (though who knows for how long).

How to apply a l’oreal hair mask

The highly pigmented formula works on darker bases to help repair hair from colour damage and help neutralise and blend colour to ensure regrowth is less obvious and appears more blended.

The mask also instantly neutralises unwanted yellow and orange tones while providing intense care to bleached and highlighted hair.

How to use the L’Oreal Purple hair mask

Once a week, after shampooing, apply on damp hair and leave on for five minutes before rinsing well.

Though it is no longer available on Amazon, 538 people have previously left glowing reviews for the hair mask.

‘Used for the first time today and it does exactly what it says on the bottle. My hair is highlighted silver, this shampoo enhances them and my hair looks just like it did when I first had it coloured. Only need to use once a week and so will carry on using as makes my hair feel soft,’ one wrote.

While another commented: ‘It does take out the brassiness and leaves hair with a faint silver tone it also leaves hair very soft.’

We think this is a choice that our hairdresser will approve of.

I have very oily hair and can’t even make a day without washing my hair. I recently purchased a few hair care products as the winter approached and the harsh weather of dry winds started making my hair dull. Today’s review is all about L’Oreal Professionnel Serie Expert Prokeratin Liss Unlimited Masque. Here’s how it fared.

Price: INR 845 for 250 ml
Product Description:
This luscious smoothing hair mask nourishes, smoothes and protects your hair fibers against humidity. Luxuriously bathing your hair in hydration, polishing its surface and providing an effective humidity blocker. Shine is enhanced and control is regained.

Claims:
Anti-frizz
Purifies
Smoothens
Packaging:
The product comes in a purple colored pot with a wide screw cap. There is some information on the tub. Since it is a tub packaging, it can be a little unhygienic to keep putting your hands in to scoop out the product. I use a spatula for the same. The product is a little bulky for travels. The mask also settles on the cap, if kept upside down.

Texture:
The mask is white in color. The texture of this mask is light and creamy. It’s slippery and you have to dig into the tub to get it out. I was expecting a more dense clay feel to the actual mask. I can easily massage it into my scalp. I leave it on for the recommended 3-5 minutes and then rinse it off.

My Experience with L’Oreal Professionnel Serie Expert Prokeratin Liss Unlimited Masque:

Recently, I’ve been suffering from really oily roots and dry ends. I am typically not able to go more than 2 days without washing my hair because my roots just look greasy and oily. This mask does its job nicely and leaves my hair feeling nice, clean and hydrated.

How to apply a l’oreal hair mask

After rinsing, my hair immediately feels silky smooth. I towel dry my hair and use a wide-toothed comb and what amazes me is that there are no tangles. I can effortlessly comb my hair whenever I use this mask. I blow-dry my hair after using this mask and my hair looks a lot healthier, shinier and full of life.

The fragrance is quite strong and I literally could smell it all day long and it didn’t really dissipate at all throughout the day. I sometimes use it as a conditioner, i.e. only on the ends. It gives me healthy looking hair, keeping my strands very soft, healthy and straight. I use this product once a week, so this little jar will go a long way even though I have long hair.
