Hair mask used in six subjects that have damage hair for 8 times every 2 days. Then, the hair mask was evaluated such as hair smooth and hair shine that used tree trained panel and analyzed using non parametric method Q Cochran. Hair strength was evaluated using autograph then the results were  analyzes using ANOVA test (p<0.05), while hair morphology was evaluated using scanning microscope electron (SEM). The experimental results showed that vegetable protein in hair mask increased hair smoothness, hair strength, and morphology of damaged hair but did not give effect for hair shining.
