How To Use The FUL Intense Moisture Hair Mask On Coily Hair
Not to be confused with curly hair, coily hair is voluminous and spongy in texture. Coily hair can either be soft and fine or coarse and wiry, with tighter curls than curly hair. Hydrated, defined coily hair always looks gorgeous but achieving these results isn’t easy, especially if you’re not armed with the right products for your hair type.
The FUL Intense Moisture Hair Mask can be used on all hair types, including coily hair! Here’s how you can achieve shiny and hydrated coily hair at home with this magical hair mask…
What Will Using A Hair Mask Do For My Hair?
Adding the FUL Intense Moisture Hair Mask into your haircare routine will give your hair the hydrating treatment that it may be crying out for. This mask is designed to replenish dry and damaged hair, which is why it’s made with power ingredients shea butter and organic coconut oil. These two ingredients have been proven time and time again to work wonders on hair. Shea butter is a highly moisturising ingredient and will help keep frizz under control and leave your hair feeling smooth and since coconut oil is fast absorbing and moisturising, it’s perfect for restoring shine to your hair and scalp. These two ingredients make the best hair hydrating duo!
How Do I Apply A Hair Mask To Coily Hair?
After you’ve shampooed your hair and it’s fully washed and you’ve dried your hair slightly so it’s not soaking wet, apply your hair mask to damp hair in place of your usual conditioner.
Due to the strong and often thick curls that define this hair type, natural oils will struggle to get to the mid lengths and ends of coily hair, which can leave the hair drier and more dehydrated than other hair types. When applying your FUL Intense Moisture Hair Mask, ensure that you’re covering all of your hair from your scalp right to the ends of your hair so the product reaches every single section. If you have really thick hair, you might find it easier to part your hair into sections and then apply the mask to each section individually to ensure you’ve distributed the mask evenly.
Despite coily hair often being thicker than other hair types, that doesn’t mean it’s stronger or more resilient. Coily hair has fewer cuticle layers than any other hair type which makes it more prone to damage and breakage. This means that you need to be extra gentle with your coily hair. When applying your mask, be wary of pulling out any tangles and try smoothing them out instead.
Once you’ve applied the hair mask, adding heat to your hair will help the nutrients penetrate your hair strands more effectively and ensure the mask is working to the best of its ability. You can give the mask the heat it needs by simply wrapping cling film around all of your hair to use the heat coming from your scalp. This will help the mask enter the hair shaft and tackle strong dryness and restore moisture to your hair.
If you have coily hair you can leave the hair mask on for longer than you would if you had straight or wavy hair as the mask will need more time to get to work. For maximum hydration, you can even sleep with the hair mask on overnight and wash it out in the morning when you wake up.
Textured hair is flat in nature, which is what gives it those gorgeous curls. However, because of this shape, your coily hair will need more moisture than straight or wavy hair in order to stay healthy. For best results, apply the FUL Intense Moisture Hair Mask once or twice a week depending on how dry or damaged your hair feels.
