The 3 Best Hair Masks For Your Hair Type
THIS WEATHER. This weather. I’ve just about had it with polar vortex 2.0 and 3.0 and so have my strands. They are all, “Bahamavention me, PLEASE.” And then I have to be all, “We’ve got another 2-3 months of this staticky, zero-hydration precipitation situation before you go back to your shiny, flaxen, former version of yourself.” But in the meantime, it’s all about masks (or masques, if you want to be fancy about it), and plenty of them. Here, my three favorites for dry, normal, and oily locks. Best of all? Each one is available at the drug store for under $10.
Seriously dry/color treated/scandalous locks get treated to this little gem–Neutrogena’s Triple Moisture Recovery Hair Mask–which at $6 is full-throttle hair help in a bottle. It blends olive, meadowfoam seed, and sweet almond oils to resuscitate ravaged hair. Use it once a week on a Sunday while cleaning out your purse and watching Girls and I promise you’ll see smoother strands come Monday. Trust.
Normal hair that maybe just needs to be cut, like, a month ago needs the expertise of John FriedaFull Repair Full Body Conditioner. If amplifying volume is your goal (but your ends are still suffering), this moisturizing 5-minute miracle is an ends game-changer. I like to re-suds my roots with shampoo post-application to give my hair more gravitas.
Even Oily hair needs moisture and Aussie 3-Minute Miracle is my favorite way to impart it. The trick is to use a very small amount, only on the ends and to rinse it out after 1 or 2 minutes (I know, sacrilege, but that three minute stuff is for those with either thick or dry hair – oily roots require strategy!). For winter weather, this inexpensive deep treatment will give raggedy ends the slip they need to stay healthy in sub-Arctic temps.
