Mashooq Deep Penetrating Oil
Mashooq’s Deep Penetrating Oil is truly versatile and can be used for deep conditioning hair, protecting against heat and chemicals, and to treat dry scalps. With regular use it will leave your hair baby soft, easier to manage and style with improved shine. Our magic oil is a unique blend of six natural oils – coconut, sweet almond, olive, sunflower, palm and wheat germ – packed full of vitamins and other nutrients to feed and protect your hair. It is suited to all hair types. Mashooq moisturizes porous hair and is especially good for Afro-Caribbean hair that needs extra hydration.
Colouring and other chemical treatments
When used with chemicals, Mashooq oil does not form a barrier but lies beneath the surface of the hair continuously conditioning it while allowing the chemicals to work on the hair shaft. While the chemical process removes key elements from the hair, the Mashooq oil works to replace them. So now you can colour/perm with confidence and avoid running the risk of damaging the hair.
When colour is being removed, particularly from very dark hair, it involves a series of stages. The first stage brings the hair to a bright red colour and then in succeeding stages through various shades of yellow to pure white. In the case of Asian, Afro and Oriental hair this can mean as many as six stages.
Unfortunately, each time colour is removed the hair becomes more brittle and the danger of the hair snapping and falling off becomes all the more prevalent with every bleaching.
Mashooq's 100% natural hair Oil coats the hair and protects it from becoming too dry while at the same time allowing the chemicals to do their job. It is simply a protective screen keeping the hair moist and balanced and the hair's natural elasticity intact. The result is hair with a natural gloss with superbly enhanced colours.
Indeed, colouring without using Mashooq is a dull result by comparison.
Instructions: Divide your hair into small sections and using a tint brush apply the oil starting at the scalp and working towards the tips of the hair. Make sure you cover the entire length of the hair. The amount of oil you need will depend on the condition of your hair, use more for dry hair.
Next use your hands to massage the oil into the hair and scalp. This process works to open up the hair cuticle allowing the oil to penetrate it and start working its magic. The oil will also moisturise the scalp and help to improve the condition of the skin.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions to prepare your perm or colour and add a teaspoon of oil to the chemicals and mix them together. Complete the treatment as specified by the manufacturer.
Deep Conditioning and Restore Dry or Damaged Hair
Use as a deep conditioning treatment, Mashooq leaves your hair lustrously shiny, manageable and soft.
This treatment is particularly good if you colour, bleach, straighten or perm your hair because it penetrates the follicle, nourishing it, to help prevent hair breaking off; it also moisturises dry or itchy scalp.
Section off hair and apply a liberal amount of Mashooq Oil on scalp and the hair ends and massage in. Wrap head in a warm towel or plastic cap and sit under a steamer or in a steamy bath or warm room for 20 minutes. Wet hair and rub in then wash and condition with Mashooq Frequent Use Shampoo and Crème Rinse Conditioner.
Style, Blow Dry and Control Fly Away Hair
A tiny pea-size amount of Mashooq run through your hair before drying or setting prevents hair looking dull, dry and frizz and protects it from heat damage. It also tames hair prone to fly away and protects it from the environment.
Dry Scalp or Dandruff
Used for the relief of a dry flaking scalp or as part of dandruff control, Mashooq is extremely effective. Use the oil before washing your hair, say 10 minutes prior or even the night before, take a small penny-sized amount of Mashooq in the palms of your hands. Rub hands together and gently massage Mashooq Oil into the scalp. Repeat as necessary.

Mashooq's Deep Penetrating was created in 1984 by Claudette Giovanni, a renowned and highly respected British hair consultant whose unique approach to hair care has won her accolades worldwide.As she worked on her clients' hair in London, Claudette found they had common complaints about the condition of their hair and the lack of good hair care products.So Claudette set about creating a product that could effectively deal with dry, brittle or damaged hair.
As her inspiration she drew upon traditions she witnessed as a child in Jamaica. Growing up Claudette saw the women around her using plants growing around them to create hair and beauty products at home which were totally natural. Mashooq was created by Claudette to enable women to enjoy the benefits of 100% totally natural products.
Mashooq, which means 'beautiful, loveable' in Arabic, demonstrates your beauty and love for yourself. The success of the Magic Oil led to the creation of the Mashooq hair and beauty range that is suitable for every hair and skin type. The amount you need to use depends on the volume and ferocity of the hair.
The Mashooq range is manufactured in the UK and can be used by everyone, young and old.
