I tried different ones, and it never says on the tub how often.

And on days you use them, do you still use conditioner? Also, it says on instructions to leave it 2-3 mins(sometimes 5) then wash it away. Is it ok to leave it overnight?

This is what I use:

I use either hair masques or conditioners. When I use masques, I don't add conditioner to the process.
As for frequency, it's very personal. I think you should just use them as often as you like but not to the point when they make your hair lank and dull or stretchy, maybe. I often see recommendations on bottles saying it should be used once a month or weekly, but I'm fine using them more or less often than that. It really depends on the masque itself and on how dry, porous, damaged the hair is.

THANKS! Are they meant to make your hair look good for that particular day(for an event or a date maybe)? Again, forgive my ignorance.

And basically, they act as a stronger version of conditioner right?

I use a deep conditioning mask once a week instead of a regular conditioner. Usually I leave it in for an hour or so, but I also like to leave it in overnight sometimes (my hairstylist recommended this).

I use a so-called "hair mask" as a leave in for my ends every time I wash so every 2-4 days.

So you use conditioner on the other 6 days?

I also often use hair masks instead of a conditioner and leave it in for around ten minutes in the shower.

Not very often. Actually, I just did one yesterday, but the last one before that was so long ago I don't remember. I should do them more often, but I always forget. I''m careful about regular conditioning and using a leave in, so the lack of deep treatments doesn't seem to make that much difference.

I try to do it weekly, either a protein treatment of deep treatment (hair loves both). Usually I don't make it to weekly, though...
