Hair Mask: Before or After Shampooing?

This depends on your hair type and the treatment used! Follow our advice to fully benefit from the virtues of a hair mask.

What is a hair mask?

A rich treatment concentrated with active ingredients, the hair mask is appliedonce or twice a weekand significantly influences the quality and beauty of the hair. It provides acomplementary action to shampoos and conditioners. Indeed, shampoo cleans the hair by removing impurities while providing some benefits (hydration, nutrition...) that remain light and superficial. The conditioner is mainly there to facilitate detangling, even if it can also enhance the benefits of the shampoo. However, these two products are not asactive as a hair mask thatpenetrates the hair fibers more deeply.

Hair Mask: Before or After Shampoo?

Typically, hair masks are used after shampooing on towel-dried hair. However, they can also be applied before shampooing, depending on the type of hair mask and the condition of the hair.

  • Pre-shampoo hair masks.

Masks intended for oily and/or irritated scalps are appliedbefore shampooing. In these instances, they are applied before washing the hair, on dry hair and at the roots, to cleanse or purify the scalp.

In cases where the hair is severely damaged and brittle (due to exposure to UV rays, chlorine, sea water, or hair dye), restorative masks intended for the lengths are highly recommended before shampooing. This step provides the hair with intense restorative care. The mask should be applied to dry and dirty hair for a duration of at least 30 minutes to allow the active ingredients to penetrate the hair fiber.

  • Post-shampoo hair masks.

While applying a mask before shampooing has many benefits, applying it after shampooing remains more common.

The hair mask provides acomplementary action to shampoos and conditioners. Indeed, the shampoo cleans the hair by removing impurities while providing some benefits (hydration, nutrition...) that remain light and superficial. The conditioner is mainly there to facilitate detangling, even if it can also enhance the benefits of the shampoo.

After washing one's hair with shampoo, the cuticles are opened and ready to receive the active ingredients of a hair mask.

Discover our hair mask.

Composed of 98% natural-origin ingredients, our restorative hair mask helps to restore the cohesion of the cuticle and fill in hair scales thanks to the synergy of 3 natural active ingredients:

  • The biomimetic ceramides act like a cement to restructure the fiber and fill in the hair's scales.

  • The mango butter repairs and prevents the occurrence of split ends and reduces breakage.

  • Theavocado oil, rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, deeply penetrates the hair

This mask is suitable for all hair types but is particularly recommended for dry, damaged, and brittle hair.

A routine for healthy hair.

Maintaining healthy hair is achieved through a good hair care routine.

After your usual washing, it is necessary to apply a conditioner in order to facilitate detangling and to provide softness, shine, and flexibility to the hair.

1 to 2 times per week, incorporate a hair mask into your routine that will be richer in active ingredients. After your shampoo, apply our repairing hair mask on towel-dried hair.

Note : You can also use a conditioner after rinsing off the mask. However, using both treatments could weigh down your hair.

In the event that your hair is very dry and damaged, prioritize the use of a hair mask before shampooing. Allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes on dry hair before proceeding with washing. In addition, we recommend our nourishing shampoo formulated with a complex of biolipids, camellia oil, squalane and aloe vera. Once your hair is washed, you can apply a conditioner or re-apply the mask.
