How to Use a Sheet Mask on Your Hair How to Use a Sheet Mask on Your Hair How to Use a Sheet Mask on Your Hair

Chances are, you’ve used a sheet mask as part of your skin care routine at one point or another. After all, this skin care product has been pretty popular for the last few years. You can find sheet masks for various skin care concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and dry skin. And now, sheet masks aren’t just for skin—they’re for your hair, too! That’s right, the latest beauty trend happens to be hair sheet masks. If you have damaged hair or dry hair in particular, you’re going to want to listen up. Keep reading to learn how hair sheet masks work and how you can incorporate one into your beauty routine.

WHAT IS A HAIR SHEET MASK?

Think of a hair sheet mask as an at-home spa treatment for your hair. With just a few extra minutes in the shower, these repairing masks (which are activated by the steam) work their magic to help reveal healthier, more hydrated strands. Here are two sheet mask options to choose from:

L'Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask: Formulated with aloe blossom, this hydrating hair treatment is perfect if you’re experiencing dry, brittle strands. The mask envelops hair in a delicate layer of nourishing cream to replenish moisture.

L'Oréal Paris EverPure Intense Repair Hair Sheet Mask: This option will help repair and strengthen strands that are damaged, weak, and frizzy. The mask envelops hair in a delicate layer of cream to help protect damaged hair.

Both of these hair sheet masks come in the form of a hydrating, sulfate-free formula-filled sheet mask cap that you place on your hair after shampooing (and rinsing). Shower steam allows for the formula to melt onto hair, and as such, each hair sheet mask is single use. The hair sheet masks are meant to be used in place of conditioner, not in addition to it, so you won't really be adding an extra step to your routine!

HOW DO YOU USE A HAIR SHEET MASK?

So now that you know what a hair sheet mask is and you’ve picked out one of the above options, you’re probably wondering how to use it. Follow our step-by-step instructions below for details on exactly that!

Step 1: Prep your mask

Before you get into the shower, open the packet and unfold the sheet mask. Lay the unfolded mask down on your sink counter or somewhere you can easily grab it while you’re under the faucet.

Step 2: Shampoo

Shampoo your hair as you normally would—gently massaging onto your scalp, creating a lather, and finally rinsing thoroughly.

Step 3: Put on your mask

Once you’ve rinsed out all of your shampoo, twist and wrap your hair fully into the hair mask cap with the flap facing forward. Place the included sticker on the front flap to seal the sheet mask.

Step 4: Massage your mask

Gently massage the cap so that your hair is fully coated with the mask formula. Then, leave the sheet mask on for five minutes.

Step 5: Remove your mask

Once five minutes is up, you can remove the hair mask and rinse out your hair thoroughly with lukewarm water.

HOW DOES A HAIR SHEET MASK FIT INTO YOUR HAIR CARE ROUTINE?

Think of a hair sheet mask the same way you would a traditional hair mask. You can use a hair sheet mask anytime you feel like your hair needs some added moisture. Generally, you’d use a hair mask once or twice a week in place of conditioner, and you can follow the same rule with hair sheet masks. As far as your overall hair care routine goes, if you regularly experience damaged or dry hair, there are a few other steps you can take in order to help keep your strands hydrated and healthy.

1. Use a nourishing shampoo and conditioner

On those days when you aren’t using a hair sheet mask, stick to a system of shampoo and conditioner formulated for your hair type. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Conditioner or the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner—both are good choices.

2. Turn down the temperature in the shower

As good as it feels, super-hot water can strip your strands (and your skin) of essential oils, leaving it feeling dry and brittle. Dryness leads to damage down the road, which is why we always stress the importance of keeping your hair hydrated. So, the next time you hop into the shower, keep the water temperature turned down to lukewarm.

3. Add in a hair care treatment

This is where hair sheet masks come into play! Once or twice a week, use a hair sheet mask in place of your regular conditioner for added nourishment. Use the five minutes that the hair sheet mask is on your hair to sit back in the tub and relax. You’ve earned it!
