Struggling to find out how long to leave the treatment on for?

It is important to follow the instructions on the bottle, but if they are not clear follow these timings as a rule.

Protein Treatments/Masks= 10 minutes

If you have coloured or damaged hair, be careful with protein treatments. Follow the instructions on the product as a general rule, never leave them on longer than 10 minutes.

Pay attention when using protein on dry or danaged hair, over use of the product can make hair brittle and cause more damage.

It is recommended to do a protein treatment once a week or once a fortnight.

Caviar Repair RX Fix & Fill Treatment Masque-

A deeply reparative treatment masque that nourishes and and strengthens, improving elasticity, manageability and leaving hair soft, shiny and completely restored.

Hydrating Treatments/Masks= 5-20 minutes

Moisturising treatments can be left on your hair for any length of time, but after a certain time don’t get any more benefits from the product.

Use hydrating moisture treatments for 5-20 minutes but still do follow the manufactures timings.

You can do moisture treatments for an hour or overnight, but you’ll get almost the same benefits as doing it for just 20 minutes. A quick tip is to do them in the shower as often as you feel but once a week or fortnight do a full treatment and really let your hair soak up all the products goodness!
