Other intensive hydration masques, such as deep conditioning hair masks for 4C hair, are formulated with deeply hydrating emollients and oils that restore moisture and hydrate. Intensive hair hydration hair masques such as the Moroccanoil intense hydrating mask and Moroccanoil intense hydrating mask are also excellent choices for thicker, coarser hair that need intense hydration. 

Hair masques are used weekly, bi-weekly or as needed for deep conditioning. They are applied on wet hair as you would apply a hair conditioner, and left on the hair before rinsing.
