SAVE YOUR HAIR FROM THE SUMMER HEAT WITH THESE 6 NOURISHING HAIR MASKS
These hydrating hair masks will restore any flyways the dreaded humidity may bring.
A good hair mask gives your locks the much needed TLC between salon visits. Especially during the warmer months when the humidity rises and our hair starts to take on a mind of it’s own.
For stressed hair
Oribe Signature Moisture MasK - $63
The crème de la crème of hair masks made by none other than hair mastermind Oribe Canales. This hydrating mask will leave your hair feeling impossibly soft thanks to amber, sunflower, macadamia oil, and mango butter extracts, which help to quench even the driest of tresses. Keratin complexes, watermelon, and lychee extract fortify from within to repair damage and strengthen the hair follicles.
This is the hair mask for when your hair is way past breaking point. It has the trifecta of moisturizers: from shea butter, argan oil, and coconut oil, to aloe vera and baobab seed oil. These powerful emollients are boosted by Onira’s signature Tahitian Ginger blend that tames frizzy and unmanageable strands into smooth and soft tresses.
for fragile tresses
Honey is having its moment in the beauty world and with good reason. It’s a natural humectant that hydrates strands and the propolis locks in moisture to keep your strands moisturized long after your hair dries. It's also full of vital antioxidants and nutrients needed to grow strong and healthy strands. Gisou founder Negin Mirsalehi honey-infused products come from her family’s bee garden and provide the highest quality of hair care, without the fillers. If your hair is extremely dry, you can leave this mask on as an overnight treatment.
Kevin Murphy Angel Mask - $49.95
Celebrity hairstylist Kevin Murphy has just the fix for flat, dull hair. This hair smoothie is equal parts conditioning and strengthening. This lightweight treatment combines fortifying quinoa, vitamins and amino acids with natural emollients to craft the perfect cocktail that will keep your scalp healthy. Alternate your shampoo with this mask for stronger strands.
For thirsty strands
Some call it liquid gold. Others call it the best non-luxury hair mask ever. Either way, your tresses will thank you. Made with jojoba oil and sea buckthorn berry extract, this thick mask will restore even the most tangled, dried out, sensitive, and unmanageable strands. For curly heads, it makes detangling a breeze. It soaks into your strands without weighing the hair down and the vitamin-rich buckthorn berry clarifies the scalp to detox it of any free radicals, boosting collagen growth for longer and stronger hair.
Protect dyed hair with this salon-quality fortifying mask. The minds at Rahua formulated their plant-based mask using only the best the Amazon Rainforest has to offer. Rahua oil heals split ends, revitalizes the scalp, and helps color last longer. Hibiscus and gardenia plant extracts boost shine and protects the hair from radical damage while leaving behind a sweet, summery scent that will have you (and your scalp) walking on cloud nine.
