Why You Need Hydration For Your Skin and Hair this Winter

It’s mask month at Make Me Fab!  Recently, we learned that hair masks are the most frequently researched hair products online, but least purchased in the salon.  So we decided to educate our customers since they were asking the internet already.

Most of us have experienced dry heat in the house, car, office – that dehydrates your skin, but it also dehydrates your hair and nails.

One of our favorite treats for dry winter hair is to apply a conditioning mask or treatment to your hair before going to bed.  Cover your head with a plastic shower cap. No shower cap. No problem –  Cover your pillow with an old white t-shirt. In the morning, shampoo and lightly condition your hair as always. You won’t believe how soft and silky it will feel for the next week!


Most of our clients are loving all  the options we carry from ColorProof.  Their masks smell delicious, are vegan, and gluten free.   Nanotechnology helps the product infuse hydration deeper into the hair shaft.  Some of the nanotechnology is rumored to have been developed right here in the capital district. Pretty cool.








Morrocanoil Restorative Mask . This treatment penetrates deep into the hair shaft to hydrate and repair. Developed to help restore elasticity and rebuild damaged hair,it strengthens while repairing damage caused by chemicals and other environmental stresses. This unique formula is rich in vegetable proteins and will help bring out hair’s inner health, leaving it incredibly moisturized with a brilliant shine.  Protein-based masks should usually be used on the hair for a max time of 20 minutes. Overuse will actually cause the hair to break, if made with animal based protein.  All the masks we are recommending here are made with vegetable protein which are safe for extended use.  Our research found that most manufacturers recommend just 20-30 minutes to get the full benefit of any mask.





For dehydrated skin we are on our second order of  The Image Biomolecular Hydrating Recovery Mask. Clients are loving this take- home product that you leave on for 20 -25 minutes.  This moisture-rich sheet mask contains an advanced concentration of ultra-hydrating ingredients to rescue dull, dry skin. Skin soaks up the biomolecular complex, which deeply nourishes and provides anti-aging benefits to fight signs of dryness, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and instantly give the skin a plump, firm appearance.






This dual purpose power-packed hydrating masque is a client fave this time of year too. The perfect skin resurfacing agent for the redness-and-rosacea-prone, this masque utilizes natural enzymatic exfoliants to gently dissolve the buildup of dead skin cells that dull the surface of the skin. It infuses skin with protective antioxidants, vitamins and hydration that nourish and promote healthy looking skin. We can’t say enough good things about vitamin C for the skin.
