Summer is not kind to hair. Swim, surf, sun – not to mention the killer combination of off-the-charts humidity and bone dry air conditioned offices can really wreck havoc on your hair. Enter hair masks. Whether you need to tame, nourish, or hydrate your tresses, there is a perfect mask for you. Apply at night and wake up with stronger, healthy hair. Or slather your strands in a mask and slick back in a ponytail before your workout. The heat will help the mask penetrate even deeper into the hair follicle. Rinse out post workout and style as usual. How’s that for multitasking!
For when you want hair so shiny you can see your reflection: Ouai Haircare Treatment Mask
Jen Atkin’s buzzy new haircare line features a treatment masque for deep hydration and shine. Atkin is the hand behind the Kardashian’s hair so she knows a thing about caring for stressed-out, over-styled hair. Paraben-free, the treatment mask leaves hair smooth and silky, and smelling like the line’s signature floral scent.
For when you want to turn your out-of-control frizz into gorgeous curls: Ouidad Curl Recovery Melt-Down Extreme Repair Mask
Ouidad specializes in products made specifically for curly hair and the unique issues curly hair has. This rich treatment mask delivers a potent mix of oils to smooth the hair follicle and tame frizz. Plus, as an added bonus, the mask is self-heating so you can feel it slighting warm on your head as it’s working.
For when you want your platinum hair to be Targaryen-level white: Olaplex Hair Perfector No 3 Repairing Treatment
This is the Holy Grail of at-home treatments for platinum hair. All that bleaching and toning makes platinum hair incredibly fragile and susceptible to breakage. Overtime this can lead to dull-looking, fried hair. Created by two material chemists, Olaplex was developed to strengthen and re-form bonds at the molecular level in your hair. While salon-only treatments can be mixed in with your toner, their at-home treatment helps keep hair stronger, longer and allowing you to “go blonder.”
For when you went swimming in the ocean…and then the pool: Christophe Robin Regenerating mask
French stylist Christophe Robin’s products give you the carefree, sexy Parisian hair you’ve always wanted. His Regenerating mask uses prickly pear oil to turn even the most straw-like hair into silk.
