8 Best Hair Masks For Rescuing Damaged Hair
Posted by Laura Rose in Hair
When your hair isn't looking its best you never feel your best. It's amazing how much difference a good hair day can make to your mood! So what happens when your hair is permanently in a lack lustre state and no amount of fancy oils, serums or shampoos are doing anything about it?
You get a hair mask of course! Below are our top hair mask picks for all types of hair concerns, from dry and frizzy to colour damaged and limp hair.
Best For Damaged Hair
Alterna's Caviar Reconstructing Bond Repair Masque works wonders on seriously damaged hair. Whether it was coursed by bleach or heat this miracle product will help make your hair feel healthy again. The formula contains Caviar extract (rich in omega-3 fatty acids) to replenish moisture, elasticity and shine, and Caviar Bond Enforcing Technology to seal hair cuticles that have been damaged through chemical processes or physical stress. This hair masque is guaranteed to leave you hair feeling smoother, softer and shiner.
Best For Fine Hair
Percy & Reed's Wonder Overnight Recovery Mask really is a wonder as it's so simple to use. All you have to do is apply a dollop of product to dry hair before bed, working it all the way from the roots to the ends. Wait for a few minutes for the product to be absorbed into the hair and you're good to go! No need to worry about staining your pillowcases. The Wonder mask works overnight to transform dull, limp hair and protect against further damage, humidity and frizz. Wash your hair in the morning and you're done - simple as that!
Best For Clarifying Hair
If your hair never feels clean, even after you've just washed it, it could be because you have a build up of product on your hair or because your scalp is prone to oiliness which attracts dead skin and dirt. If that's the case then you NEED Christophe Robin's Cleansing Mask with Lemon. The lemon zest extracts works as an exfoliator for the scalp to help get rid of any dirt or dead skin that may be clogging up the surface. It is also great to use on bleached and coloured hair, leaving locks with a brilliant, rich shine.
Best For Split Ends
Split ends really are horrible things and they seem to multiply in their thousands. A sure fire way to help hair that is prone to breakage is to use Pureology's Hydrate Superfood Treatment Mask. It contains essential nutrients such as avocado and coconut oil to nourish and moisturise dry hair while strengthening its surface. The mask is also suitable for coloured hair as it contains their exclusive Antifade Complex which provides colour protection. You will see results after just one use and your hair will be left feeling soft, silky and strengthened.
Best For Coloured Hair
When Olaplex came to the UK last year it quickly changed the way stylists approach hair colouring. It works by protecting strands during the bleaching process, strengthening, conditioning and reconnecting the hair's structure where broken. This means no more damage when it comes to bleaching. The results of the treatment are prolonged with Olaplex's No.3 Hair Perfector at-home mask that offers continuous protection from ongoing everyday damage and allows damaged hair to regrow.
Best For Curly Hair
Curly hair can be seen as both a blessing and a curse, but now that Bumble & Bumble have created the ultimate curly hair mask those days of woe are over. Containing nourishing ingredients such as Argan, Macadamia Nut, Safflower Seed and Sweet Almond Oils, the velvety mask transforms into a luxurious liquid to replenish and regenerate hair, whilst controlling unruly styles and fighting frizz from root to tip. It'll give your hair a serious moisture injection without weighing down your natural curls. Apply the creme to dry hair once a week before shampooing and watch your hair turn from dull and limp to glossy and full of life!
Best When On A Budget
Good hair masks don't have to break the bank, and Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor is proof of that. The essential nutrients from Macadamia, Jojoba and Avocado Oil transforms dry and damaged hair into soft, shiny locks after just 3 minutes. Leave the product on for longer depending on how damaged your hair is.
Best For Dry Hair
This product got so much social media coverage when it first hit the market, and rightly so because it's a life saver! Coco and Eve's Like A Virgin Nourishing Coconut & Fig Hair Masque is a must have if you have dry, broken and damaged hair. The formula strengthens, repairs, tames, treats, conditions, softens and shines hair for full replenishment. Raw coconut extracts prevent breakage and split ends while also promoting good scalp health. Use once or twice a week and leave on for 10 minutes before washing off to reveal hair with a new lease of life!
