If you're like us, your weekly hair mask session is a highlight of every week. From the creamy texture of the mask to the way it makes your hair feel post-treatment, a hair mask rivals a good facial in our book. To get maximum benefits you have to first choose the right one for your hair type. To make the hunt a little easier, we rounded up eight hair masks to try based on your specific hair type or concern.
For curly hair:
Curly-haired girls will benefit from Ouidad's formula of fatty acids that coat the hair shaft to rebuild the often damaged lipid barrier. Bonus: The mask warms as you use it!
For lackluster hair:
This new mask from SHOW Beauty aims to nourish the hair from root to tip. It promotes shine and strength with amino acids and proteins.
For aging hair:
This gold-keratin peptide complex mask and bonnet kit is a lifesaver for aging hair. It boosts volume, hydration, and shine.
For super dry hair:
Breakage is a huge concern for those with severely dry strands. This hydration mask relies on Argan oil to nourish hair and improve elasticity and manageability, thus cutting out the possibility of breakage.
For color-treated hair:
You don't have to give up your love of switching up your hair color in the name of healthy strands. Instead, opt for a color-safe mask. This one locks color in and contains grapeseed oil for added nourishment.
For frizzy hair:
Calm that fall frizz with this conditioning treatment from Shea Moisture. Enriched with raw shea butter, Amazonian cupuacu, and Passiflora Oil, frizz is tamed, the scalp is nourished, and humidity is a thing of the past.
For damaged hair:
Split ends aren't just unsightly—they can cause serious damage to your mane—preventing it from looking smooth and growing out healthy. If this is your biggest hair problem, reach for a treatment that helps bind ends and prevent further breakage such as this new find from Orlando Pita.
No matter what your mane pain might be, this pre-shampoo masque is a fantastic choice for a luxurious hair treatment for anyone. Formulated with six oils, this treatment goes on dry hair prior to shampooing to maximize absorption.
