With Summer comes loads of sunshine, longer days, vacation time away from work (how many of you live near a beach?), drinks on a patio and….. split ends? Yes, unfortunately dry, damaged hair is a by-product of hot weather, humidity and chemicals like chlorine. All year round but especially during the Summer months, it’s very important to keep your hair well hydrated. Of course healthy hair also requires a balanced diet and regular trims but one of the easiest ways to achieve healthy, stronger hair is by using a hair mask 1-2 times a week. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite drugstore and professional hair masks!! Depending on your hair type, condition and/or whether or not you colour your hair, you’re sure to find a mask below that you love…. and if your tresses turn into enviable locks come Fall, well then let’s just say – you’re welcome :-)!
Redken’s Diamond Oil Deep Facets is an oil-enriched intensive treatment for dull or damaged hair. It helps prevent damage while adding shine and smoothness. If your hair is dull and lacks lustre, you’ll love this one!
Klorane’s Mask with Desert Date is another great option for dry, damage and brittle hair. It has a high concentration of desert date (comes from Africa) which repairs and regenerates dehydrated strands. The range also includes a leave-in cream and a shampoo.
Schwarzkopf’s BC Bonacure Color Freeze Treatment is a great mask for anyone that colours their hair on a regular basis and is looking for a nourishing mask to help maintain their color. This one smells delicious too!
The Pure Vibrance Hair Revitalizing Masque by Arbonne was created for chemically/colour-treated hair but is equally as effective on virgin hair. Its formula prevents fading to help lock in colour and also produces lustrous shine and softness.
Moroccanoil’s Smoothing Mask works best on unruly or frizzy hair. It provides intense conditioning and leaves hair feeling strong, smooth and ready to style. The “smooth” range is formulated with argan butter, argan oil and coconut-derived fatty acids.
Macadamia Professionals’ Nourishing Moisture Masque is a revitalizing and repairing mask for medium to coarse hair. It offers ultra hydration, repairs damaged hair, detangles and reduces frizz. Talk about multi-tasking!
For hair that lacks thickness, L’Oreal Paris’ Fibralogy Intense Texturizing Mask is a must-try! It thickens hair wash after wash, so overtime, you can expect more volume and bounce.
