Best Curly Hair Masks
Mizani Moisture Fusion Intense Moisturizing Mask
You may have noticed we didn’t include a matching conditioner for the Mizani Moisture Fusion Shampoos.

This creamy intensive moisturizing mask is infused with cupuaçu butter, argan oil, and honey, helping to improve the condition of hair without adding weight.
