Use a hair mask once a week between salon appointments—they’re like intense conditioners that help reduce breakage and add shine.
Choose a mask with both color and UV protection. UV exposure, heat and water can cause color to fade; a mask will help protect it.
Add heat to your hair mask to ramp up its effectiveness. Apply product, cover with a shower cap and blast with a blow dryer before rinsing. Masks can also be applied to dry hair—just make sure to shampoo after use.
All Soft Heavy Cream Super Treatment
This hair mask strengthens from the inside out, making it silky and frizz-free. An interlock protein network resurfaces the exterior to take hair from brittle to beautiful.
To soften and soothe: When your hair needs a little extra love (okay, a lot), treat it with soothing avocado and olive oils—plus gold camelina for shine. Use on a weekly basis.
Nourishing Moisture Masque
This intensive moisturizing mask undoes damage from heating and styling, bringing bounce and shine back to every strand. Did we mention it smells divine?
To treat coarse hair: The omega fatty acids in macadamia and argan oils soak into hair cuticles to repair and strengthen. Work through mid-to-end of hair and leave on for 5-10 minutes.
Melt Into Moisture Matcha
Butter Conditioning Mask
This buttery treatment takes curls from dry to fly with matcha butter, beet root and sweet almond oil to reveal silky, soft strands. Plus, it melts into hair without weighing it down.
To hydrate curls: Get a moisture boost in less than three minutes—or cover your curls in plastic cap for 15-20 minutes for a deep treatment. To intensely hydrate, leave on overnight tense hydration.
This versatile mask doubles down on damage control, working as both a daily conditioner and deep-conditioning treatment for damaged hair.
To reverse damage: Apricot kernel and sweet almond oil repair and nurture growth. Try wrapping hair in a damp towel and leave it under heat for up five minutes before rinsing.
100% Virgin Coconut Oil
This nourishing treatment mask rids your frizz fast. Vitamin-rich coconut oil and milk soften strands while acacia Senegal locks in moisture to support elasticity and sheen.
To fight frizz: When your hair needs a vacay from heat and styling, apply and wind up your strands in a warm towel. Let your hair soak up the coconut before you rinse.
Biolage Hydrasource Aloe Mask
This intensely hydrating hair mask mimics the natural moisture-retaining properties of the aloe plant and heals it from the inside out.
To quench your color: Dry hair retains less color and can be difficult to manage and style—but this aloe-like mask performs first-aid fast. In five minutes, hair feels soft, vibrant and luxe.
