Dry, brittle strands might be a sign your hair needs some TLC, and weather conditions during the colder months could be making it worse. Enter hair masks. Although all hair types can benefit from a good mask, these deep-conditioning, nutrient-rich formulas are especially great for dry hair, which can more easily split or break at the follicle.
"Hair masks and treatments are a great way of nourishing and softening dry hair, especially in the winter," says Sacha Mitic, hairstylist and co-founder of haircare line Sachajuan. Like face masks, hair masks are not necessarily for everyday use but as an added step when you notice your hair could use a boost. "Start by masking once a week, and adjust frequency depending on what your hair needs," recommends Mitic.
These 21 masks deeply condition even the most parched strands so hair looks and feels softer, shinier, and hair-commercial healthy.
Ouai founder slash celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin polled fans on Instagram to find out if they preferred their mask in a tub or a tube. Tube won, and the popular, super-softening Treatment Masque was born.
This made-for-you formula flips the traditional order of things. You apply the mask first to damp hair, then shampoo it out to reveal refreshed strands. Plus, each mask is customized to fit your hair type’s needs.
