At Rossano Ferretti Parma, we believe in nourishing this essential aspect of self with the utmost care and sophistication. One such divine practice in the realm of hair care is the application of hair masks. Keep reading to discover how to use a hair mask according to our team of global hair experts.


What is a Hair Mask?

A hair mask is a deeply nourishing treatment designed to repair, restore and rejuvenate your hair beyond the superficial level, much like a spa retreat for your hair. Its powerful, rich formula, superior to the regular conditioner, is brimming with active ingredients like oils, butters, and proteins. These naturally-derived ingredients found in our collection of hair masks, penetrate the hair shaft to address various hair concerns, such as dryness, frizz, and damage. Our hair masks cater to different hair types and conditions, rich with handpicked ingredients like shea butter for hydration, keratin for strength, and Pro-Vitamin B5 for a healthy glow.

The key difference between a hair mask and a conditioner is that a hair mask is a much richer product. Our own Rossano Ferretti Parma hair masks are highly concentrated with certified organic botanicals, and as such require only a small amount to achieve the desired results. Contrary to popular belief, hair masks, certainly Rossano Ferretti Parma hair masks, can be used daily or as often as hair is washed, when applied correctly (keep reading to find out how). A hair mask is your hair’s best ally, a bespoke care routine designed to breathe life back into your tresses.

How to Apply a Hair Mask

Unlock the secrets to beautiful hair with these steps on how to use a hair mask.

Wash Your Hair: Always apply your hair mask to freshly washed, damp hair. It allows the ingredients to penetrate better into the hair shaft.

Apply the Mask: Section your hair and apply the mask thoroughly from mid-lengths to ends. Avoid applying directly on the roots; our rich formulas are deeply nourishing and once applied and distributed evenly to mid-lengths and ends, the naturally-derived ingredients will travel up the hair shaft themselves to work their magic.

Time it Right: Leave your Rossano Ferretti hair mask on just for a few minutes to notice a difference. However, if your hair is severely dry or damaged, it can be beneficial to leave it on for longer or even overnight.

Rinse and Style: Rinse out the hair mask completely and style as desired.


Choosing the right hair mask

Thankfully, our hair masks have been specially formulated for specific needs, according to your hair’s type and texture, making choosing the perfect hair mask an easy task:

Dolce Nourishing Hair Mask: For dry, malnourished hair

Grandioso Volumising Conditioner: For fine or flat hair in need of volume that does not weigh down

Vita Rejuvenating Hair Mask: For thin, aging or fragile hair in need of fullness, growth support and vitality.

Intenso Smoothing Hair Mask: For ultra-thick, coarse hair in need of extra hydration and discipline.

Can you put a hair mask on dry hair?

While it’s recommended to apply the mask on damp hair for better absorption, if your hair is extremely dry or damaged, applying a hair mask to (clean) dry hair can be beneficial too (just remember to rinse it off thoroughly). If you’re looking for a leave in conditioner, however – we have just the thing: Vivace Leave-In Conditioner.

Can you leave a hair mask on overnight?

Yes, you can leave a hair mask on overnight for a more intense treatment, especially for severely damaged hair. Ensure to gently wrap your hair to keep your pillow case clean.

How long to leave hair mask on?

With most hair masks, a 10-15 minute application is standard, but with Rossano Ferretti Parma’s hair masks, a mere 5-minute embrace is enough to notice a transformation. Such is the power of our naturally-derived formula and craftsmanship that both our esteemed clients and Hair Artists have found this brief indulgence to be effective, though the duration may be tailored to your hair’s unique requirements.

Can I apply a hair mask to fine or flat hair?

Sure! If your hair is dry or coarse and lacks moisture a hair mask can also be applied to fine or flat hair. Alternatively if you are looking for a volumising treatment that won’t weigh hair down, our Grandioso Volumising Conditioner has been designed for the specific needs of fine or flat hair. As the winner of Marie Claire’s ‘Best Volumising Conditioner’ our gentle yet powerful formula contains the same nourishing and softening power of a hair mask, but designed specifically to help add volume, boost body and bounce on fine or flat hair. It’s a win-win!
