If you think you've got your hair routine down-pat with your shampoo, conditioners and maybe a leave-in if your feeling fancy, chances are if you are not yet incorporating a hair mask or treatment, your tresses are missing out.
Incorporating a hair mask into your self-care routine will not only provide a reason to sip champagne in the bath on a Sunday afternoon, but treats your hair with specific needs including damage, dullness, frizz and dehydration.
With there being such a wide selection of hair masks available, we know it can be challenging to decide on a treatment best suited for your hair type.
Think of the times your hair is thirsty for that something extra, enter our favourite hair masks:
The Best Luxury Hair Mask
This Mask for R+Co's newest couture line, Bleu is a favourite from both celebrities and industry-leading stylists. Formulated with the Bleu Molecule Complex, De Luxe Reparative Masque is thick and intense in texture but doesn't leave the hair weighted or limp. Similar to bond-building treatments such as Olaplex, this masque works from the inside out to repair and strengthen all hair types. Active Ingredients including Argan and Maracuja Oil, Primrose Extract and Nettle assist in hydrating and moisturising the hair, leaving hair feeling sealed and deeply treated.
The Best Mask for Damaged Hair
Unlike typical hair masks, which hydrate and smooth the exterior of your hair to make it look softer and shinier, the K18 Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask repairs damage from the inside out. K18 penetrates into the hair's innermost layers, where it can restore hair's core strength and elasticity, restoring it to its near-virgin, youthful state,
If you've pushed your hair past the brink of damage with excessive heat styling and colour services, nothing will give you an instant result such as K18. We recommend in using a Clarifying Shampoo, such as R+Co Oblivion Shampoo, before applying K18 for ultimate results.
