Hair masks are essential to your beauty routine. They can also help resolve almost all of your hair issues. This beauty tool is a wonderful way to deep-condition and detangle your hair, protect your hair from environmental stressors and heat damage, and add shine and smoothness to strands. Here are some of the best hair masks to try for each and every hair type.
Due to the fact that curly hair is naturally drier than straight hair, this type will need a thicker hair mask. A thicker hair mask contains oils that are heavy enough strengthen, shape, and seriously moisturize your curls with various types of oil like: olive oil, coconut oil, and castor oil. Curly-hair favorite hair masks include Ouai Treatment Masque, a mask that combines shea butter, artichoke leaf, and coconut water to ultra-hydrate texture, and Amika The Kure Intense Repair Mask, which reinforces and strengthens hair, and improves shine.
If your hair is oily, you want the opposite type of mask that someone with curly hair needs. A thick mask will only make your hair oilier. The type of mask we recommend does not contain oils, but a clarifying ingredient like clay or apple cider vinegar. A couple of masks we recommend include Orlando Pita Play Hair Purifier Vinegar Cleansing Mask, which removes buildup and environmental toxins left on hair, and DpHue Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse, which will gently cleanse and remove impurities without stripping the natural oils that are essential to the health of your scalp and hair.
Fine and Thin Hair
People who have thin and fine hair types need a hair mask that doesn’t weigh their hair down. Ingredients in this type of mask include lightweight hydrators such as honey extract and hyaluronic acid along with others that will make your hair stronger. However, it is important to use this mask sparingly, for example, once a week. Masks that help fine and thin hair include Christophe Robin Color Fixator Wheat Germ Mask, which balances the hair’s pH levels without adding heavy moisturizers, and O&M The Power Base Protein Masque, that reduces frizz and smooths hair and promotes hair growth.
