Lifeless to Luscious: Achieve your Best Locks Yet with a Hair Mask

Eighteen highly-praised products to help your hair glow without needing a trip to the salon.

Knowing how to style your hair is one thing, but knowing how to do it without creating further damage to your locks is becoming a near impossibility. Luckily, hope is not lost just yet. Now is the time to say goodbye to frizzy, damaged, dry and breaking strands thanks to the evolution of hair masks. The self-care product your hair is begging for, masks will leave you noticing your hair magically returning to its former glory.

For Brittle and Breaking Hair

There are many reasons behind why your hair may be extremely dry, causing strands to split and break.

Regardless of whether the reason is the heat from tools, how you wash and dry your hair or exterior stresses in your life, your hair may leave you wondering what the best solution is to fix it and maintain it long-term.

The quickest way to combat dry hair in need of rehydrating is by using hair masks that lock in moisture and work on restoring life back to your brittle and lifeless strands.

For curly or permed hair, Bread Beauty Supply has created a must-have in the form of their creamy and deep conditioning hair mask. With an extensive amount of Sephora reviewers all settling on five stars, it seems to be the go-to treatment to reverse damaged curly hair.

For a tried-and-true product, that is often deemed as the holy grail of hair repair, you can’t go wrong with Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3. With an Adore Beauty star rating average of 4.7 stars from 957 reviews, we can’t recommend the repair and strengthening mask enough.

For Frizzy Hair

Call us over-dramatic, but is there anything more annoying than styling your hair only to look in the mirror and see unmanageable and untamed frizziness?

No matter how many flyaway hair wand strokes you apply to your hair, sometimes there seems to be no way of taming the mane. When trying to repair frizzy hair, it is always best to go for nutrient-rich ingredients in your product.

Jojoba seed oil boasts an inclusion of many essential fatty acids, powerful antioxidants and vitamins A, D and E, making it an ideal ingredient to look out for in hair masks.

Evident from its name, Amika’s Soul Food Nourishing Hair Mask promises to give your hair the nutrient-rich food it is silently begging you for through the addition of jojoba seed oil.

For a hair mask that also gets to the root of the problem, we recommend the Biolage Hydrasource Deep Treatment. With a deeply hydrating mask due to the aloe and spirulina ingredients, your hair will be left not only softer but stronger and shinier. It’s no wonder the reviews of the product are glowing when a simple once a week, three-to-five-minute treatment can achieve optimum results. Obtaining a solid five-star review rating on Adore Beauty, it is a superior product and almost sure to transform your hair for the better.

For Chemically Damaged Hair

Whether you opt for a bold colour or a more natural shade, there is nothing worse than leaving the salon with your hair looking its best only to be left with consistently dry and snapping hair as soon as you start to care for it from home.

While it may make sense to stop chemically colouring our hair as a solution for damaged hair, for many of us who love experimenting with different hair colours, this is not even an option worth considering. Thankfully, many hair brands are on the same wavelength as us and have created another solution in the form of hair masks designed specifically to aid chemically coloured hair.

To regain the glow that has since been lost, we recommend Redken’s Color Extend Magnetics. This is a treatment specifically aimed at coloured hair, the magical formula not only brings back the vibrancy of your shade but also ensures intense conditioning is achieved.

The despair over wanting your hair to be repaired is a dilemma we just don’t have time for. Fortunately, Briogeo hears us loud and clear. Ready to step in and take the hassle away, the brand’s cruelty-free and scientifically tested Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Mask not only restores but works to prevent – the best result one can ask for.
