Although many hair care lovers have wash day down pat, knowing when to apply a treatment mask still requires trial and error for some. If your hair is looking for more moisture, Dae Hair Care’s newest Monsoon Mask is available to soak your ends.

Created by Amber Fillerup Clark, Dae highlights ingredients primarily found in the brand’s hometown of Arizona to combat the dry climate. Following the success of the shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner and leave-in conditioner available at Sephora comes the all-new Monsoon Moisture Mask. Plus, if you’re in love with the way Dae products smell, this new mask has a whole new amazing scent.

The Dae hair care lineup already has a deep conditioner, but that’s not what the Monsoon Mask is for. According to the brand, the Monsoon Mask deliberately brings hydration back to your curls while also intensely softening each strand. You can still use both in your hair care routine, too. The deep conditioner repairs damage, and you can use it daily or weekly. However, you don’t have to use the Monsoon Mask as frequently since it addresses your hair’s dryness.

My Review of the Dae Monsoon Mask on Kinky Curly Hair

To understand the full extent of the product, I washed my hair with the Dae Deep Conditioner one week. The following week, I washed my hair along with the Monsoon Mask. The deep conditioner has more slip than the regular conditioner. However, applying the Monsoon Mask, I was a little disappointed that it didn’t give me a lot of slip.

Thankfully, I gave the mask the full chance to sit on my hair. The directions tell you to leave it on for 10 minutes, but I kept the mask on for a full hour, and it did what it says it does. As soon as I rinsed it out with cold water, my hair was a lot softer than it was before showering. If you’re heavy-handed and have kinky curly hair, you might go through this jar quickly. I finished about a third of the product on my first use.

The thickness of your hair and the frequency with which you wash and treat it will determine how quickly you go through this Monsoon Mask. Nevertheless, the mask comes in clutch for folks with curlier hair on those off days when your strands are extra dry or when you skipped a weekly wash.
