Which types of hair masks work best for curly hair?
Have coils, kinks, ringlets or waves? Moisturising masks are your best friend! “Think of curly hair like a sponge, always thirsty and looking to soak up hydration,” says Hyde. “The hair structure responsible for curly or coily texture can leave it susceptible to dehydration as water evaporates out of the hair. It’s also why humidity makes for some ‘hair-raising’ [frizz and the ‘puff ball’ look] as parched hair absorbs hydration from the environment.”
“The key to maintaining a consistent curl pattern is adding a boost of hydration from a rich hair mask. Look for masks that top up hydration with humectant ingredients and seal it all in with rich oils or butters,” she explains.
Some MECCA favourites that do just that? Briogeo’s Curl Charisma™ Rice Amino + Avocado Hydrating & Defining Hair Mask for Curly Hair and the Living Proof No Frizz Intense Moisture Mask.

Can a hair mask help with dry scalp?
Ah, the dreaded dry scalp! If you’ve noticed tightness, itchiness or flaking, a mask may help provide some much-needed moisture, according to Allomes.
“The addition of a mask into our skincare routine is a great way to boost hydration, and it’s the same for our scalps: using a hair mask can boost the condition of your hair from the ‘ground’ up! Our scalps receive the nourishing and replenishing benefits of hair masks, leaving them looking and feeling great,” she reveals.

The lightweight texture is packed with ingredients that help to draw out any excess oil build-up on the scalp, while soothing and hydrating!”
