The Hair Mask

HC-1106

This creamy solid hair mask uses the amino-acid based amino lipid, AminoSensyl™ HC to deeply nourish the hair and LexFeel™ N350 MB to provide color protection.

The solid format has a fun DIY consumer experience – melt this waterless formulation in hot water for the next generation of the “hot oil treatment”.
